Abhyanga

Abhyanga, loosely translated, means “attending to a part of the body in the present moment.” A therapist performs this full-body ayurvedic-style massage using warm sesame oil. Marmas, or subtle points of energy, are addressed on the face and feet to balance body, mind and spirit. This traditional therapy releases toxins, enhances immunity, nourishes the skin and creates deep relaxation.

Ashiatsu – Deep Barefoot Massage

From the Japanese words "ashi," meaning foot, and "atsu," meaning pressure – the ultimate deep-massage therapy. In this compression massage, the therapist uses overhead bars for balance while using the feet to bring about release and structural change in chronically sore, tight tissues. Ashiatsu provides deep relaxation and stimulates the circulatory system. This is the modern version of a classic Asian therapy for persistent back and neck pain.
