Ayurveda

ayurveda-page-imageHaving its roots in Indian, Tibetan, and Chinese medicine, Ayurveda (pronounced ‘aa-yer-vay-da’ ) dates back well over 5000 years and has been dubbed the “Mother of All Medicine”. Ayurveda, which literally means Knowledge of Life, takes a natural approach to health and well-being by restoring balance and strengthening the body’s inherent healing wisdom. Our new Ayurvedic spa treatments will draw upon this ancient wisdom to create an experience that will awaken and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit to its original harmonious state. In the tradition of Ayurveda, the practitioner will determine your present dosha, or body constitution, and customize the entire treatment to meet your specific needs and goals. You can expect a deeply relaxing experience where every opportunity is taken to ensure your comfort and aid in releasing the most deeply rooted toxins, tensions, and traumas.

Each stroke and technique work to open the energy channels of the body and aid in the release of stored toxins.

Shirodhara

This Spa Ritual brings together four Tibetan massage treatments to create a seamless rhythm that will lead you into a very peaceful and profoundly deep state of relaxed awareness. Special energy points help to release mental tensions, gentle warmth and massage to the abdomen and feet settle the mind and relax the face, all of which lead to an anointing of the forehead with warm sesame oil. This deceptively simple technique of playing a fine stream of warm oil on the middle of the forehead recharges the body, brings clarity to the mind, and offers a quiet space to experience our true selves.
