& the Science of Life
Directly translated, Ayurveda means the “Science of Life” and is an ancient system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic traditions of India. This dynamic body of knowledge encourages a sense of overall wellbeing by striking a balance between our environment and the cohabitating needs of our body, mind, and spirit.
Performed by two therapists, Abhyanga is a 4-handed, friction-based, choreographed massage. Skin is anointed with warm, herb-infused oil as medium-pressured strokes are applied to reset the nervous system. This unique and loving experience increases circulation, strengthens immunity, and deeply relaxes the mind.
With Shirodhara, a soothing stream of warm oil is poured over your forehead and onto the sixth chakra to drop you into a meditative state that awakens your intuitive center. This treatment calms the central nervous system and provides deep nutrients to your scalp, face, shoulders, and neck—bringing the physical and energetic body back into deep union.
The most comprehensive way to regulate vital life force is to concentrate on the breath. A Nasya facial and nasal treatment uses herbal oils to open the airway by clearing the sinuses and includes lymph work from our hydrofacial machine. Using marma pressure points to soothe congestion, this treatment has a lasting impact on immunity, clarity, and balanced respiration.
Marma Point Facial
Meaning ‘sensitive’ or ‘vital’ in Sanskrit, marma energy points can invigorate the prana in the body to restore vitality. Like yoga for the face, a marma facial stimulates skin and muscle tone while reducing frown lines and furrowed brows to unmask our natural radiance. This unique combination of gentle touch to the face and neck mixed with stimulation to the scalp and ears is also good for stress relief, TMJ pain, disturbed sleep patterns, and chronic sinus congestion.
