Abhyanga

Abhyanga

The corner stone of Ayurvedic treatments is an Abhyanga massage. It is a 1 hour massage, 30min on your front and 30min on your back. This massage has specific strokes which help “arrange” the 5 elements in the body which will balance your body constitution or dosha. We use warm organic medicated oils for all our treatments. Depending on your dosha we will select the correct oil that would suit your specific needs. Remember that 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 help enhance circulation. A treatment like this will help keep all these uses of the skin at optimum levels while at the same time relaxing you physically and mentally.

Shirodhara

Shirodhara

Shirodhara is the process of pouring either oil, milk or buttermilk from a bowl in a soothing slow rhythm from side to side on your forehead. Shirodhara and abhyanga are the two classic Ayurvedic treatments. If your looking for 2 hours of relaxation and rejuvenation then book an abhyanga and a shirodhara right after each other, together they create the most soothing 2 hours of your day. With each successive Shirodhara treatment, the mind systematically achieves an even deeper state of silence and more healing takes place. Regular treatments are the best way to achieve a good state of mental health.

Bolus Bag

Bolus Bag

The Bolus Bag treatmenets are the some of the deepest treatments that Ayurveda has to offer. This is because we not only use warm medicated oil like the Abhyanga treatment but we also use herbs, spices and leafs in a poultice during the massage. Of course the specific herbs will change depending on the person and their disbalance. It has similiar movements as the Abyhanga treatments but it goes much deeper into the system because of the medicine and the increased heat that is used. This treatment is 1 hour long, 30 minutes on your back and 30 on your front. Because of the herbs and spices used in the Bolus Bag the colour of the spices (normally yellow) will remain on the skin for a couple of days, so make sure to wear clothing that you wouldnt mind getting a little spicy.

Local Vasti

Local Vasti

This treatment, Vasti, is a 30 minute treatment done in one area of the body the entire time, but because it focuses on one area only it can be extremely beneficial. This treatment can be done anywhere along the spine or on the knees. It is especially helpful for any bone related conditions because it goes deep into that area. We use warm medicated oil depending on what you need and will massage the area afterwards to make sure you get the most amount of oil into your system as possible. This treatments works especially well when done for multiple consecutive days and/or with other treatments.
