Ayurvedic Body Treatments

Ayurveda is the traditional healing system of India – one of the world’s oldest. Like traditional Chinese practice, ayurveda is based on the idea of restoring balance to the whole person.

Abhyanga

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

Bindi-Shirodhara
Traditional ayurvedic oils, herbs, salt masque and massage are chosen according to your body type (dosha). The body’s energy systems are rebalanced by activating traditional marma points on the face and head. An Indian balancing bowl used on the soles of your feet brings your body into balance. The therapist then pours a gentle stream of warm oil over the third eye and forehead in a soothing pattern, and lightly massages the oil into hair and scalp. This powerful combination of herbal infusions, massage and energy work cleanses and detoxifies, enhancing immune function while rejuvenating the skin and spirit.

5 Point Star

This traditional ayurvedic practice focuses on healing in a five-point treatment of the scalp, hands and feet. This treatment connects the body and mind, promoting harmony throughout the body using traditional herbal infusions and oils. A balancing bowl is used to realign the body’s natural elements and stimulate marma points.

Shirodhara

This is a classic ayurvedic treatment designed to induce a state of meditation as it profoundly calms the nervous system. Your forearms, hands, lower legs and feet are massaged in traditional fashion. An Indian balancing bowl is used on your feet, and marma points are addressed to balance the energies of the body. The therapist directs a stream of warm herb-infused oil over the third eye and forehead to de-stress the mind and emotions, then massages the oil into hair and scalp, which nourishes as it soothes.
