Harisa combines ancient and modern healing practices to relieve stress and relax bodies. During the 45-minute Shirodhara relaxation treatment, guests recline on a wooden table while a suspended container slowly pours a stream of warm oil over foreheads, washing away stress and inducing soothing daydreams of picnics with William Howard Taft. Alternatively, nimble massage therapists unwind kinked-up muscles with seven types of one-hour massages. The hot-stone massage saps away achiness with rock-radiated warmth, and the AromaTouch tends to chakras, daubing specific points along clients’ energy meridians with soothing essential oils. Other modalities can relieve general tension, target chronic aches and pains, or help alleviate wrinkles by stimulating facial muscles.
Inside Harisa’s office, a lotus flower bobs in a water-filled bowl, while a sitar-playing figurine gazes down from a high corner shelf. Silky curtains shield resting clients from outside eyes, while ornate carpets furnish fugitive genies with convenient getaway vehicles.

About Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center
Shanthy Jayakumar prescribed many medicines during the nine years she worked as a medical consultant for Mother Teresa Medicare in Sri Lanka, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of them in a typical drugstore. That's because her prescriptions consist of herbs, holistic therapies, and even certain types of food. According to Shanthy, many patients initially come to Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center for Western-style massages or organic facials, but return for the Ayurvedic medicine that she introduces to them.
Treatments such as herbal nasal cleansing absolve the body of physical impurities, and relaxing Shirodhara head massages quiet inner monologues or AM radio signals as a slow drizzle of heated oil drips onto the forehead. Panchakarma therapy cleanses the three Ayurvedic systems that govern the body by combining healing massage therapy with internal cleansing induced by carefully selected herbs.
