Abhyanga

Restore balance with this ancient healing massage. Herb-infused oils are warmed then massaged into the skin using soothing friction strokes. The healing properties of the herbal oils benefit the nervous system, reduce muscle tension, relieve joint pain, and eliminate impurities from the body.

Rasayana Renewal Ritual

Our Rasayana Renewal Ritual is a special Ayurvedic journey inspired by ancient rituals performed in India. The service begins with an ghee foot massage to relieve tension and next, a full body deep pressure (Vishesh) massage with heated dosha oils accompanied with warm  poultice therapy. A warm wrap follows, along with neck, shoulder and scalp massage, allowing your body to fully relax and release tension. The ritual concludes with a hibiscus grain buffing

Shamana-Karma

This service purifies and boosts immunity and spirits. Start with a blend of coconut, ginger, and rosemary oils that are massaged using traditional Ayurveda techniques. Steaming, hand-wrapped poultices with lemongrass, mint, nutmeg, and clove warm and energize the body while releasing tension and toxins. An aromatic wrap follows, finishing with a cleansing hibiscus powder dusting, restoring the vitality of your skin and spirit.

Pradhāna Veda

Ayurveda’s key elements combine for this restorative experience. Begin with Abhyanga, a warm herbal oil massage, to release toxins and increase circulation. Next a calming marma-point therapy balances energy. Shirodhara, a soothing stream of herbal oil poured over the forehead, melts tension and calms the nervous system. Finally, be cocooned in a warm aromatic wrap accompanied by a gentle scalp massage.
