Service Description

Abhyanga is an application of high-quality warm oil that is infused with herbs. This full-body treatment is designed to penetrate the skin, relax the mind, and break up impurities. It stimulates both lymphatic and arterial circulation, which delivers nutrients to starved cells and removes stagnant waste. Abhyanga results in a heightened state of awareness, which directs the internal healing system of the body. Healing and spiritual power manifest in the body as Abhyanga opens these internal pathways.  This all-over body treatment is combined with Shirodhara, which is a gentle and methodical stream of warm, high-quality oil infused with herbs drizzled over the forehead. This treatment synchronizes brain waves and profoundly coordinates and calms the mind, body, and spirit. Shirodhara most effectively purifies the mind, changing patterns of behavior and healing emotional traumas over time. This purification of the mind leads to good health and spiritual growth. Receiving Abhyanga first helps the body to relax to prepare for the Shirodhara. These treatments are most beneficial when received in a series of 3 or more. It is imperative to make some time to rest after this treatment and avoid watching TV or movies or doing anything else stimulating to the mind for the rest of the day. If you are unable to do this, please choose a different treatment. Other tips: Eat lightly on the day of treatment. Oil treatments should be avoided during the first 3 days of menstruation or during heavy flow. Wear or bring clothes that you don’t mind getting oily. Bring something to cover your head for your return home. Drink extra water to help flush out impurities. *This website provides general information and discussions about health and related subjects.
