AYURVEDIC THERAPIES
Ayurveda is a traditional holistic approach to well being handed down from antiquity originated out of India over 5000 years ago. Ayurveda includes herbal remedies, daily routine and exercise. Ayurveda provides a model to look at each individual as a unique makeup of the three Doshas and to thereby design treatment protocols that specifically address a person’s health challenges.
CONSULTATION:
Your first visit begins with a consultation and an in-depth diagnosis. During your consultation you will discover your predominant ‘’body type’’ (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) and excess or deficiency of any Dosha. Ayurvedic practitioners will suggest specific therapies, lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to assist the individual in regulating the dosha(s). Herbs and oils may be suggested to aid in the healing process by releasing imbalances, impurities, stresses, tensions and toxins held within the body. Ayurveda meditation techniques enable you to reach into your unbounded levels of Pure Consciousness to reconnect with the universal essence of life. Recommended series of treatments last from one to three hours.
ABHYANGA:
A relaxing light massage using long flowing strokes and an abundance of warm oils infused with East Indian herbs to balance and calm the body. It will also help to remove stress and nourish the nervous system.
SHIRODHARA:
The Queen of Ayurvedic oil therapies. Oil is poured in a continuous stream onto the forehead from a hanging vessel. Shirodhara relieves stress and strain-related problems, slows aging, improves memory and nourishes the hair and scalp. It also prevents insomnia, and anxiety disorders.
PADABHYANGA:
This therapy plays a very important part in Ayurvedic medicine. Nerves from many organs terminate in the feet. Massage helps to strengthen these nerves and restore health to many parts of the body. The marma (vital points) are massaged which gives balance to your Dosha and it is very helpful for people with insomnia, fatigue and cramps.
SINUS-RELIEF MASSAGE:
This treatment emphasizes release points around your eyes, nose and neck and helps you breathe and relax deeply.
SHIROABHYANGA:
Includes pouring of warm oil on the head followed by massaging of the head, neck and forehead considering the marma (vital) points, giving relaxation to the head which helps in releasing the stress and knots from the shoulder and neck region
OTHER MODALITIES

CUPPING
Glass or rubber cups are applied to create suction on the skin, warming and promoting the mobilization of blood flow in order to promote healing. This type of therapy is typically used to treat musculoskeletal disorders such as pain in the lower back, shoulders, and legs.
REFLEXOLOGY MASSAGE
Reflexology has roots on a millenary Egyptian technique that works on points mainly on the feet but also on the hands and ears, which correspond to specific areas of the body. Reflexology treatment helps to improve healing and health on all body systems. The pressure massage of reflex points stimulates the immune system and improvement of the physical body.
