Ayurveda’s skilled body-bolsterers roll aromatic oils onto tense corporeal landscapes using ancient therapeutic Abhyanga-massage techniques to restore energy flow, reduce stress, and detoxify systems. Ayurveda technicians commence treatments by warming a custom blend of organic, herbal-infused oils, which prepare them to assist in the healing process or sauté vegetables. Tension drains from muscles as the holistic therapists deploy soothing strokes and a variety of lymphatic-massage techniques to help squeeze out toxins. Working along the energy channel of the body, the healing hands also unblock the flow of prana—the body’s vital energy. Treatments can help to relieve fatigue, build stamina, and enhance the skin’s luster, and may lead to deeper sleep and a sense of contentment usually felt only after warming cold toes in a loved one’s beard.
Following the Abhyanga session, a Bashpaswedanam steam treatment further enhances detoxification and oil absorption. A secluded yoga and meditation room allows for mini mental vacations before or after treatment, and Ayurveda recommends wearing casual clothing and bringing a spare towel to drape over car seats or llamas to prevent unwanted oil prints on the ride home. Add-on treatments are available with the 90-minute Abhyanga massage package; consult the front desk for details during visits.
