What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda (the sister science to Yoga) is translated as “The Science of Life” and is one of the world's oldest Holistic (whole-body) healing systems. It was developed over 5,000 years ago in India and is based on the fact that everything is made of a quantity of the 5 Elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Air, Ether) including the human body. We are all born with a unique balance of each of these (Prakruti) and one’s health and wellness can become imbalanced (Vikruti) due to diet, lifestyle and seasonal changes, which can affect the mind, body, and spirit.

Ayurvedic Treatments

Abhyanga - A gentle massage using warm herbal infused oils that stimulate circulation, detoxify, improve sleep quality and strengthen resistance to stress. Deeply nourishing for body and mind this treatment effects the nervous system and brings you into a deep state of relaxation. Also very beneficial for arthritis.

Shirodhara -

Shirodhara originates from India over 5000 years ago and is based on the ancient principles of Ayurvedic medicine.

Shiro means “head” and dhara means “to flow”. This treatment involves the warm and consistent flow of herbal infused oils on the forehead, focusing on the ‘third eye’. The oils flow from the 3rd eye over the scalp and through the hair, creating a blissful sensation.

As the oil pours over the forehead it produces a balancing effect in the brain, stimulating the endocrine system, and the pituitary and pineal glands (balancing hormones) and the neurotransmitters responsible for pleasure which help alleviate depression and emotional insecurities.

Nasya - Application of medicated oils into the nose. Nasya purifies and rejuvenates the tissues and organs of the head and neck and removes toxins from the nose, larynx, pharynx and mouth, sinus cavities, eyes and ears. Cleanses the sinuses, prevents migraines and useful for allergies.

Pindeswedana - This treatment begins with 30min Abhyanga and then specially formulated herbs are tied in a cloth, heated and then rubbed vigorously over the body to tone and detoxify tissues and remove or reduce cellulite accumulations.
