Based on the ancient system of Ayurvedic medicine from India
A beautifully relaxing and luxurious full-body warm herbal oil massage. Oil type is chosen based on your body type (warming oils like sesame or almond for vata, cooling oils like coconut or olive oil for pitta, warming oils like mustard or sunflower oil for kapha). The skin is the largest organ of the body. It produces naturally occurring antidepressants, anti-cancer, and anti-aging substances as well as hormones that enhance circulation. (You may get hooked and start doing daily self-massage!)
- Increases the softness of the skin and adds lustre to it, in turn giving skin a healthy glow

- Increases strength and stamina

60 minutes $150
Head and Neck Massage Add-on, 30 minutes $50
In this very popular and profoundly relaxing treatment, warm herbalized oil is poured in a gentle stream over the forehead. The oils are allowed to flow over the scalp and through the hair, nourishing them and creating a blissful sensation. As the oil strokes the third eye, it has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, the pituitary and pineal glands (for hormonal upsets) and pleasure neurotransmitters (for depression or emotional insecurity). The procedure is also said to synchronise alpha brain waves, enhancing blood circulation to the brain, improving mental clarity and generally releasing deeply trapped ama, or toxins. Calms and purifies, rejuvenates. Can be done alone or combined with abhyanga.
60 minutes $150
Or have both an Abhyanga and Shirodhara for $275!
