Ayurvedic Massage - Abhyanga

The classic Ayurvedic massage, Abhyanga enlivens, cleanses and revitalizes the mind and body. Warm herbalized oils are applied to the skin followed by a rhythmic light-pressured massage to help restore the flow of vital energy (prana) in the body. Stimulating the arterial and lymphatic circulation, it enhances the delivery of nutrients to tissues and the removal of stagnant waste. Profoundly grounding to the nervous system, Abhyanga can help with stress management, sleep disturbances, fatigue and is said to promote longevity. Aromatherapy can also be used during this treatment.

 

This treatment is indicated for all body types, and is especially helpful for vata imbalance, stagnation, and the promotion of general health and wellbeing. Abhyanga is contraindicated during menstruation and the first trimester of pregnancy.

This technique also produces static electricity, which promotes the flow of blood and lymph, naturally detoxifying  the tissues of the body. Garshana is added to any full-body treatment.

 

This treatment may be especially helpful for lymphatic congestion, poor circulation, fatigue, muscle stiffness and lethargy and may improve immune function.

 

Garshana is especially indicated for excess kapha or ama (toxins), and is balancing to all doshas.

Marma Chikitsa - Acupressure Therapy

Marma points are vital energy points located on the surface of the body that communicate with a complex system of energetic and physical channels, serving as a doorway between the body, mind and soul. Infused with prana (life force energy), these points hold incredible potential for balancing organs, dhatus (tissues), srotamsi (channels) and and are used to bring vitality to the body and balance to the mind and emotions.

 

In this treatment, the practitioner uses gentle pressure, aromatherapy and sound tuning to facilitate profound healing and balance the nervous system, encouraging a deep sense of calm and rejuvenation.

 

Balancing to all body types, especially helpful in balancing the mind and relieving stress.

Swedena - Steam Therapy

This special steam treatment dislodges toxins from deep within the tissues while keeping your head and core cool. Swedena relaxes the body, reduces tension, and opens the channels of circulation. Loosened impurities are eliminated through the sweat glands and gastrointestinal tract, thus purifying tissues and eliminating accumulated toxins from the body. This process also promotes the absorption of therapeutic oils deep into the bodily tissues and leaves you feeling bright and refreshed! A wonderful way to detox with heat, without over heating the whole system. 

45min includes full body Sneha (warm oil application): $70

75min with full body Abhyanga or Vishesh: $105

90min with full body Abhyanga or Vishesh: $115

Shirodhara - Mind Balancing Treatment

In this deeply relaxing treatment, a continuous stream of warm herbalized oil is poured on the forehead to bring balance to the nervous system. Designed to encourage the flow of prana (life force energy), Shirodhara brings a sense of coherence to one’s entire being. During this treatment, brainwaves slow and a state of ease is supported in the mind, buffering the burden of the stress we all carry. Perfect for anxiety, insomnia, overstimulation, and other manifestations of stress, Shirodhara is the ultimate antidote to our busy lifestyles.

 

Balancing to all dosha, shirodhara is one of the most powerful treatments to relieve vata in the mind.
