Abhyanga Massage $100
An ancient treatment using warm oils is designed to improve circulation, remove toxins, calm the nervous system and enhance immunity.
This soothing synchronized massage allows the therapeutic qualities of the herbs and oils to penetrate deeply into your body promoting healing at the micro-cellular level. Abhyanga eliminates excess water and fat deposits, it purifies the blood and tissues of toxins, it promotes lymphatic drainage, and it strengthens and rejuvenates the tissues of the body.
A steady stream of warm medicated oil is continuously poured onto the forehead. The oil runs over your temples, scalp and down through your hair. This is a massage of the third eye and as you lay there, you won’t want to be troubled with detail, only with the restorative sensations as you drift and dream.
This is a deeply relaxing treatment which revitalizes the central nervous system, activates and regulates the brain, relieves mental tension, removes ama (toxins) and induces a heavenly state of mind. Shirodhara gives best results when taken on the day following an abhyanga.
Udwartana is a specialized herbalized treatment for weight reduction, which reduces fat while retaining the texture and complexion of the skin, without causing wrinkles and sagging. Dry herbal powders are used to stimulate hair follicles and fat tissue in order to break down subcutaneous fat storage. Udwartana helps reduce blood cholesterol, obesity and skin problems whilst strengthening muscles and refreshing the body.
The brushing (garshana) increases circulation, alkalizes the blood, helps create negative ions, and cleans the skin so herbal oil can penetrate more deeply. Warm, herbal-oil massage (abhyanga) nourishes the skin, aids in removing impurities, stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation, and calms the central nervous system, promoting a blissful sensation. Garshana enhances the potential for nutrients to reach starved cells and also eliminates stagnant waste. Best when follow by the abhyanga massage (see above).
