Ayurveda (eye-yur-VAY-duh), derived from the Sanskrit words for “life” and “knowledge” is the traditional healing system of India – one of the world’s oldest. The holistic practices of ayurveda, which encompass diet, yoga and body treatments, are rooted in the idea that body, mind and spirit must be balanced if the individual is to achieve longevity and the highest degree of health. Your therapist will determine your dosha (mental and physical constitution) and recommend treatments and products to restore balance.
This specialized massage from India combines touch therapy with transdermal aromatherapy. Fragrant essential oils, chosen to balance your dosha (constitution), are applied with light pressure to marmas – according to ayurvedic thought, energy points on the skin where your subconscious mind communicates with your body. When stimulated, these doorways send messages to internal organs and vital functions of the body. Profoundly relaxing and balancing. Twice the bliss: Four-Handed Abhyanga (two therapists).
