AYURVEDIC LIFESTYLE CONSULTATION
An Ayurvedic Consultation is an opportunity to open to new possibilities and create a healthier, happier, more balanced life. We’ll begin with an Ayurvedic pulse assessment to help determine any imbalances, then discuss how you feel, what you want to accomplish and details about your current diet, lifestyle, and daily routine. We’ll identify the most important areas to focus on, and you’ll receive personalized recommendations to help correct imbalances and support your wellness goals. There are many benefits to incorporating Ayurveda into your life, including stress reduction, more restful sleep, increased energy, clarity of mind, better immunity, and a deeper connection with yourself.
This is the quintessential traditional Ayurvedic treatment, and after experiencing it you’ll understand why it’s so popular. Abhyanga is a choreographed massage using friction-based strokes and warm Dosha-specific oils. As the oil is massaged into the skin, it penetrates deep into the tissues to loosen toxins at a cellular level. The Abhyanga enhances immune system function, promotes circulation, and creates deep relaxation in the body and mind.
Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow). This experience awakens the senses, bringing increased mental clarity. The slow, rhythmic sensation of the oil is a unique sensory experience that creates a state of profound relaxation.
Sound is a powerful healing tool for the body and mind. The Gandharva uses sound therapy to improve the flow of energy. Along with a full-body warmed oil massage, the therapist incorporates the use of crystal singing bowls to vibrate and transform the cells in your body. This unique treatment interweaves nurturing touch with harmonic sound waves to awaken vitality and blissfulness.
VATA-PACIFYING ENERGY WORK
In Ayurveda, Vata is the subtle energy that regulates the nervous system. Symptoms of Vata imbalance include fatigue, anxiety, restlessness, worry, spaciness, difficulty concentrating, interrupted sleep, constipation, gas, bloating and dry skin, hair and nails. Vata imbalance is very common due to the demands of our modern-day, fast-paced lifestyle. These specialty Reiki sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs and are intended to help you feel more relaxed, grounded, and centered in your being. This is an opportunity to decompress and receive deep rest and nurturance, exactly what Vata needs to come back into balance.
Cupping therapy is the combination of massage movements and gentle pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated, then a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the underlying skin into the cup. This creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation to the applied area, relaxes muscle tissue, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body, and releases a range of pain causing factors.
