My visit to Ayurveda Village was wonderful. The premises is calm and serene, and very clean and comfortable. Staff were wonderful and I was blown away by treatments.



Thank you to the amazing, highly qualified, and professional staff at Ayurveda Village and the receptionist that helped with my booking. I had the most relaxing and beautiful day in such a lovely location.


I found my one-day retreat at Ayurveda Village to be exceptional and calming, with wonderful staff in an idyllic setting. My body needed rejuvenation during my busy life. I will definitely come back again. Thank you.

Mental Health Retreat – Ayurvedic Treatment Program Inclusions

Consultation With Ayurvedic Doctor

All our doctors and therapists are qualified, accredited practitioners offering authentic, classical Ayurveda treatments. During the consultation, the doctor will ask you a series of questions about your health and lifestyle and then examine your tongue and check your pulse to help determine your dosha (constitution) type. We are all made up of a mix of the three doshas (Pitta, Vata and Kapha), but one will often dominate, and this will determine the best treatment program and herbal formulations to suit your unique situation.

Yoga, Meditation & Breathwork

To start the day, our therapists will guide you through a gentle yoga class along with guided meditation and breathwork to help create a sense of peace and stillness.

Yoga, meditation and breathwork can profoundly affect the mind, body and wellbeing. They are powerful tools to help you manage stress / anxiety, build self-awareness and increase concentration and focus. Regular yoga, meditation and breathwork practices have been proven to help induce relaxation, reduce stress, heart rate and blood pressure, and can help decrease pain and inflammation.

Signature Abhyanga Massage

Our signature Abhyanga massage is a restorative Ayurvedic massage, unlike any other massage. It is a blissful sensory experience delivered with beautiful music, warm herbal oil and gentle strokes that follow the body's energy lines (marma). It incorporates the whole body including the head, face, neck, shoulders, fingers and feet for a totally relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

Cleanse, detox and revitalise

The massage oil is treated with herbs that cleanse and detoxify the body and create a fragrant aroma. Our massage uses long, sweeping strokes focused on the acupressure points (marma), which release energetic blockages, stimulate the lymphatic system (immunity), improve circulation, and create a beautiful sense of nurturing and wellbeing.

Ayurvedic Body Scrub

Following your massage, your therapist will formulate a special herbal scrub (paste) and rub it into the skin. The herbal paste helps to condition skin, increase circulation, cleanse impurities and detox the body.

Ayurvedic Steam Bath

An Ayurvedic steam bath is not like an ordinary bath; it is a specially designed seated steam chamber that circulates steam around the body below the head.

Steam opens the pores, allowing the herbal scrub to penetrate deep down through the skin into the blood and tissues for maximum detoxification. As the steam penetrates deep into the muscle and connective tissue, it can relieve muscle tension along with pain and stiffness in the joints.

Facial Marma Massage

Our facial marma massage is so much more than a facial. It is a gentle treatment that helps to dissolve stress, tension and headaches. Warm herbal oils are tenderly massaged into the skin and light touch is used to stimulate specific energy points (marma) in the face.

The therapeutic oil, combined with gentle manipulation of the marma (acupressure) points, helps to release energetic and emotional blockages, stimulate the lymph nodes (immunity) and increase blood flow whilst nourishing and hydrating the skin.


Shirodhara is a divine and relaxing therapy that helps to soothe and calm the mind to relieve stress, anxiety, headaches and improve sleep. It stimulates the pineal gland, third eye and higher consciousness. A steady stream of warm herbal oil is continually flowed across the forehead to trigger the body's relaxation response (parasympathetic nervous system), which calms the mind, relaxes the body and significantly reduces stress levels.

Complimentary Ayurvedic Treatments (3-day Retreats)

Sound Healing

A sound healing session often takes place after a treatment and uses specific sound frequencies to help induce healing, relaxation and a profound sense of peace. Specific sounds and frequencies can have a therapeutic effect on the mind, body and spirit and can help create a sense of calm, serenity and balance.


A warm footbath is often administered before treatments to help relax clients and draw out impurities from the feet. The footbath contains Epsom salts and aromatherapy oils to nurture and detox the body.
