Our Services

Ayurvedic Massage (Abyangha)
A brief consultation begins the session. Your therapist will ask a few questions about your current state of wellbeing and assess the nature of your constitution. The appropriate oils and herbs will be chosen to benefit you. To begin the massage, the therapist focuses their energy with a brief balancing meditation and may invoke a mantra (prayer) to magnify the healing potency. Our signature massage is performed with luxurious warmed organic oils infused with herbs and aromatherapeutic essences that deeply penetrate and nourish the skin and senses. Your mind and body are lulled into a deep state of relaxation, while circulation and detoxification is stimulated for enhanced healing. Your nervous system is profoundly calmed and rejuvenated, leaving you in a deeply nourished trance state of peace and renewal. Don’t miss the unique experience of receiving this ancient Ayurvedic treatment!
The Blissful Mind (Shirodhara)
(Sheer-o-DAR-a): This unique Ayurvedic treatment is a total mind/body/spirit reset. As you lie comfortably on your back, warmed oil infused with herbs is gently streamed over the brow for approximately 25 minutes. The stimulation of nerve plexuses on the forehead & scalp releases neurotransmitters & neurohormones that relax & reset the body at the deepest level. Shirodhara facilitates the release of serotonin & can also elevate alpha & theta brain wave activity, opening you to a state of relaxation in which there is relief from thought & a deep well of peace and restfulness. Includes a 1/2 hour massage.
Tibetan Foot Reflexology (Kansa Vataki)
Reflexology uses pressure point healing to access the body’s zones and meridian lines in order to rebalance the entire body. These points are directly related to the body’s systems as well as the energetic meridian pathways which are used in most eastern body work applications, such as acupuncture and shiatsu. Accessing reflex points within the feet is non invasive and the effects are immediate and profound. The practitioner applies rapid finger pressure with index fingers and thumb to specific reflex points resulting in a restorative effect on the body, increasing energy and blood circulation and causing release of endorphins. Finger pressure is followed by the use of the Kansa Bowl, an ancient, instrument made of synergystic metals that alkalize and detoxify while regulating the electric impulses of the nervous system. The treatment enhances overall wellbeing, evoking complete relaxation, increased energy flow & a deep sense of groundedness. Includes 1/2 hour massage back, neck, face & scalp massage.
Heart Chakra Therapy (Hrd Basti)
This treatment, unique to Ayurveda, is applied externally to the Heart Chakra – called Anahata – in Sanskrit. The word Anahata means “unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten.” The heart chakra is the wellspring that moves love, warmth, compassion, and joy through your life. A vessel is made out of dough, placed over the heart, filled with warm, herbalized medicated oil and allowed to stand for up to 45 minutes. The heart, as a physical and energetic nexus, is bathed, cleansed, fortified and nourished. This treatment is recommended for the energetic imbalances that lead to physical conditions of the heart, such as weakness or arrhythmia, in addition to emotional conditions, such as heartache, sadness, anger, loss or a lack of self-love. Includes 1/2 hour massage.
Eye Bathing (Netra Basti)
This extraordinary technique bathes the eyes in slightly warmed oil called ‘ghee,’ that is infused with the cooling and clarifying medicinal properties of rose and chrysanthemum. Each eye is surrounded with a ring of dough, which is then filled with ghee. This is allowed to stand for approximately 20 minutes. Dust, dirt, and particulate matter are cleansed. The delicate tissue of the eye is nourished and soothed. This treatment is used therapeutically for any number of eye complaints. It’s wonderful for eyes strain caused by over-use of technology, or to sooth eyes exposed to heat, dryness or smoke. Gazing through a warm ghee solution is said to have a nourishing effect on the optic nerve and the nervous system. Eye Bathing (Netra Basti) also offers beneficial effects for beautification. It seems to relax not only the eye area, but the whole face. Fine lines and puffiness are eased, along with inflammation and dryness of the eye and the skin around it.
Herbalized Body Steam (Svedana)
This deliciously invigorating full body herb-infused steam bath is the perfect compliment to cleansing and detoxification protocols – and especially blissful on a cold spring or winter day. The head is kept cool while the body is heated in a steam tent to stimulate a sweat that deeply warms while removing toxins. As aromatic herbalized steam saturates the skin, pores open in a cleansing sweat. Toxins move out. The channels of the body are cleared, muscles relax and the senses are nurtured. You are purified and invigorated. Excellent for weight loss, detoxification and to raise core body temperature. Add to any treatment to increase your bliss!
Facial Rejuvenation Treatment
This treatment provides a soothing exfoliation that nurtures the skin tissue and activates natural cleansing and rejuvenating processes. Special energetic points (marma) on the face and scalp are massaged to calm the activity of the mind, creating a state of peace and tranquility. An herbal heat treatment opens the pores. The purest medicinal skin care products available are utilized, leaving your senses nurtured and your skin glowing.
The Sinus Treatment (Nasya)
This treatment clears the sinuses and reverses the deep dryness that is the root of many respiratory, central nervous system and allergic conditions by cleansing, opening and suffusing the sinus tissues with medicinal oils. Nasya begins with a facial massage. Heat is then applied to the face and head to encourage dilation and opening of the sinuses. Medicated oil is administered into the nasal passages to cleanse and purify the sinuses. Nasya has an immediately beneficial affect on allergies, snoring, sinusitis, tinnitus, sleep apnea and headaches. It is a valuable aid for increasing mental focus. INCLUDES 1/2 HOUR MASSAGE
Reiki Session
NOTE: Currently, Reiki sessions are only available on FRIDAYS. Reiki is an energy healing practice that promotes relaxation, stress reduction, healing & overall well-being. Most will experience feelings of deep relaxation & well-being while others may experience warmth, visions, colors, energy vibrations & physical healing. CONTINUED HEALING: Even after your Reiki session, your growth and healing continue. Many of the benefits of a Reiki session can occur when the session is over. You may find that creative solutions to problems present themselves or life events start lining up for your highest good. Reiki is a 100% natural, non-invasive & safe method of energy balancing for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki assists the body in self-healing where the practitioner acts only as a channel for energy. Reiki is not meant as a substitute for medical, or psychological, diagnosis and treatment. You should continue to see your regular physicians, including receiving physicals and preventative testing.
Soothing Ears (Karna Purana)
Ear Oiling is the Ayurvedic process of applying herbal oil to the ear canals. Your treatment begins with a scalp, face and neck massage. One by one, as you lay on your side, each ear is filled with warmed drops of herbalized oil and massaged to allow the oil to move deeply into the canal. A warm towel is placed over the ear while you rest for 10 minutes to allow the oil to properly absorb. Includes 1/2 hour massage. This therapy is highly recommended for those who use mobile phones continuously and for people exposed to high levels of noise and air pollution. It is also recommended in the fall/autumn time of year to offset imbalances resulting from the dry qualities of the season.
Lower Back Treatment (Kati Basti)
This is a medicinal oil treatment for relieving tensions in the lower back. The patient lays down on their stomach, while a large ring is fixed on the back with a paste made of a special flour and water. The therapist pours warm, specially medicated oil inside the circle. The medicinal properties of this treatment relieves tensions, reduces inflammation and penetrates deeply into the bone tissue. The oil is changed intermittently so that it is kept warm over a period of 30 minutes.
