Kamalaya’s unique Vital Essence Oil Massage combines Asian knowledge of energy principles with the science of aromatherapy to create the perfect synergy between East and West. This magical and harmonising experience is a simple and effective way to let go of tensions, improve your health, balance your emotions and enhance your life. One of our Five Element essential oils will be selected to suit your body’s constitution: Water, Wood (Air), Fire, Earth, and Metal (Ether).


A traditional Indian massage using a combination of soothing and symmetrical long strokes to regulate the circulatory and nervous systems of the body. This detoxifying therapy uses warm herbal curative oil to leave you feeling refreshed, balanced and rejuvenated. The oils are generously poured over the entire body and then vigorously massaged into the skin. This traditional Indian massage detoxifies your body and revitalises your spirit. A steam bath is recommended following this massage.


Oriental herbs are used to gently exfoliate the body in order to improve overall circulation. This is followed by an invigorating body wrap using Thai White Mud, which has long been used by Thai women for cleansing and brightening the skin. The addition of aromatic Thai herbs, each specially selected for its beauty and health-enhancing properties, warms and stimulates the body to enhance circulation. This treatment is recommended for water retention, sluggish circulation, muscular problems and detoxification.


Thai massage is based on the discovery of ten invisible energy lines called Sen, which run along the body. Your journey begins with a masterful combination of Thai stretching techniques and deep tissue pressure point massage. This stimulates the blood flow, releases toxins, and allows the body to naturally heal itself and restore suppleness. Daily Thai Massage can help accelerate the pace of the detoxification process and reduce any discomfort. This treatment is available with or without the use of a hot herbal compress. The hot herbal compress, which is an ancient Thai healing tradition, uses a potent blend of herbs that are designed to open energy pathways directly affecting the brain. This can help to clear mental fog, soothe and calm the mind.


Personal mentoring sessions create a holistic healing experience that affects the physical body and brings balance to the emotional and spiritual realms. These sessions focus on helping you become free of conflicting and repetitive responses, rediscover your core strengths and values, establish greater love and connection in relationships, heal past emotions and discover a wonderful new way to get the best from life. Your Personal Mentor will take you through a process of healing using profound insights, powerful practices and ancient techniques of divine energy transfer.


Healthy eating is an integral part of Naturopathy. The Naturopath will discuss your nutritional goals and look at current dietary patterns. Beneficial for people who already follow a ‘healthy diet’ as well as those who have little or no nutritional knowledge, this session gives plenty of easy to implement take- home advice and takes an educational look at how foods work in the body. Individualised nutritional advice will be provided for any specific health conditions. Kamalaya emphasises wholesome food, as dietary habits play an important role in preventative and curative aspects of health. Nutrition plays a major role in restoring and maintaining health by supplying necessary nutrients to body cells for energy production, tissue repair, hormone production and proper organ function.
