Service Description

The treatment begins with Garshana, a vigorous scrubbing with raw silk gloves prior to Abhyanga or Vishesh. The methodical scrubbing of Garshana opens the pores to allow deeper penetration of the oil, exfoliates the skin, stimulates the flow of lymph and blood circulation and invigorates the body. Next enjoy Abhyanga, 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.  These two treatments combined leave one feeling invigorated and relaxed. Tips to maximize the benefits of your treatment: 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. Schedule time for rest after your treatment to absorb the full benefits of the treatment. Drink extra water to help flush out impurities. *This website provides general information and discussions about health and related subjects.
