"About six weeks ago I experienced a rewarding treatment at Spa Ayurda. I had an Ayurda Abhyanga massage and have been looking forward to my next visit. I was extremely pleased with my treatment, it was very relaxing and the perfect antidote to the weekday stress. Kay, who performed the treatment, was very experienced - I enjoyed having her tell me about the benefits of massaging each pressure point - I think this is very important, so you leave feeling like you know that the treatment has not only been worthwhile at the time, but that the benefits are also long lasting. Similarly, I enjoyed hearing about the intrinsic benefits of the treatment (useful for stress, anxiety, emotional contentedness), as much as the physical benefits.
The only things I would have liked to be different is to have been asked if I wanted the room warmer, as while it was at a tepid temperature I normally enjoy massages in a more heated room. Also, in certain areas, I would have preferred a firmer massage. Kay was very good, but in areas such as the shoulder/back I feel more pressure could have been applied.
The ambience and environment at Spa Ayurda is great, it definitely puts you at peace the moment you walk in. The staff who work there are also very courteous and warm which is so important in a spa environment.
