During Sudheesh’s time at The Nautilus, guests can discover “Ananda Moksha”, a bespoke Ayurveda-based wellness experience curated by Ananda for The Nautilus. The holistic therapy is inspired by the concept of Moksha, which signifies a liberation of the senses and a release for free flow of prana or energy. This 60-minute treatment has been customised to work on different levels of the human body and consciousness to create a sense of overall physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Ananda Moksha is a full body massage which uses traditional Ayurvedic therapeutic techniques used for thousands of years in India. The therapy applies pure essential oils of ginger, cardamom and black pepper, known for their powerful nurturing and rejuvenating properties, blended in a rich nourishing sunflower and wheat germ base oil rich in vitamins and minerals, with powerful anti-oxidant and regenerative properties.

The massage begins with traditional oil application with long strokes on the entire body followed by pressure points release, stimulating the musculo-skeletal system, leaving guests with increased energy and a heightened sense of vitality. This eliminates sluggishness and simultaneously helps to release any discomfort or blockages, aches and pains. The therapy continues with slow release along the spine followed by abdominal circulation, ending with relaxation, toning and easing muscle tension in the shoulders, neck, head, and scalp. Although the therapy works on the physical system, its effects can be experienced in the mind and emotions, resulting in a feeling of rest, repair and rejuvenation.

Along with the Ayurvedic therapies, guests are also invited to experience the Ananda world of creative, healthy cuisine. Ananda’s cuisine philosophy is tailor-made to each dosha or body type, incorporating seasonal variations and local produce. As per Ayurvedic principles, each dosha-Vata (energy of movement), Pitta (energy of metabolism) and Kapha (energy of building and lubrication) has guidelines for food groups and ingredients depending on its balance or imbalance in each individual. Ananda’s specially curated menu for The Nautilus incorporates the six fundamental food tastes of sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent and combined with the three macronutrients of protein, fat and carbohydrates, which are vital to good health.

Hailing from India, the Visiting Master Sudheesh has over 14-years of experience in treating people from all around the globe with his expertise in traditional Ayurveda. With his in-depth knowledge of Ayurvedic treatments, Sudheesh helps to manage and relieve body aches and pains, by restoring vitality and improving strength and immunity. Within his practise, the Ayurvedic treatments aim to nourish the bones and muscles, increasing blood circulation, and eliminating toxins from the tissues.

At Ananda, Sudheesh has developed and curated traditional Ayurveda therapies to meet the demands of modern healing. He works with a variety of conditions and creates customised, outcome-driven treatment plans to address individual health needs through holistic therapies, Ayurvedic herbs and lifestyle recommendations based on traditional Indian wisdom.
