Ajasrika was listed among the top five for CityVoter's Best Massage in the OC for 2011, its title earned by a trusty stable of certified therapists skilled in a variety of therapeutic styles. The acupuncture session graces the skin with gently placed and manipulated needles designed to relieve stress, promote improved healing, and send the body flying around the room like a deflating balloon. Back dough in need of kneading should opt for the Swedish massage (a $50 value), which relies on rhythmic strokes and essential oils that strive to promote circulation and tenderize taut tendons. Prior to 60 minutes of this light-to-medium therapeutic touch, an exfoliating organic sugar back scrub (a $25 value) soothes ailing skin with a blend of sugar, grains, and essential oils. Each concoction is applied with either warmed oil or soy milk, which bestows guests with delectable cornflake skin.
The wellness center's individually decorated massage rooms and elegantly draped acupuncture room create an atmosphere dedicated to the concept of ajasrika, which means "activities that promote health and wellness" in Sanskrit and “explosion of howler monkeys” in Na’vi. Tired eyes are awakened with views of emerald foliage, and the cozy tearoom is stocked with plush chairs and healthy refreshments to be enjoyed before or after treatments.
