“In synch, four hands spread warm oil over my entire body, and the slow, languorous movements of the two therapists draw me further into a sense of detachment. Eventually I’m wrapped in pleasantly warm towels, lying in state of tranquillity. The cells of my body feel alive yet calm at the same time. A therapist pours oil gently over my forehead and I sink into weightlessness. I’m basking in a state of deep relaxation to an extent I’ve never felt before.”

What sounds purely like a satisfied client after a wellness treatment, is in fact referring to an ancient healing system of natural and holistic medicines, which dates back thousands of years to the Himalayas.
