Ayurveda

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 - Appropriate Doshic oil is applied to the skin in long strokes and a rhythmic fashion.  Stimulates the circulation to remove wastes from the tissues while improving their nutrition by keeping the lymph free moving and pure. It also alleviates the effects of old age and fatigue, and improves the vision and sleep quality while strengthening resistance to stress.

Shirodhara - A continuous flow of warm herbal oils are poured in a slow, steady stream on the forehead (the 3rd eye). Deeply relaxing it brings the client to an almost meditative state. Particularly good for Vata imbalances.

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.
