A relaxing warm nourishing oil massage designed to balance the doshas. Often infused with healing herbs and aromatherapy oils, it aids the body's natural ability to withstand stress, and helps balance the mind, body, and emotions.
A steady rhythmic pouring of warm therapeutic oil onto the pituitary gland (third eye) followed by a face, neck, shoulder, and scalp massage. Shirodhara can both rest and calm the mind, and also stimulate the third eye and crown chakras, which awaken intuition and inner wisdom. The result is a deep state of relaxation.
The "science of life", Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. This tradition and philosophy uses many lifestyle management techniques to harmonize the doshas. Various forms of Ayurvedic massage are based on the knowledge of the youth-restoring effects of herbs and oils to balance the body, mind, and spirit.
In each Ayurveda treatment there is a focus on Marma therapy. Marmas (acupuncture points) are special energy centers on the body. Gentle massage of these points can assist in positive prana (energy; life force) flow, influence the functioning of the doshas, and restore balance.
