By 2011, Promila Shar knew that it was time for a name change. The aesthetician—who opened Taj Beauty & Wellness in 2004—had gained a legion of loyal customers for her mastery of Ayurveda, a discipline she studied diligently in both America and India. These traditional Hindu treatments put her clients into deep states of relaxation, so much so that she earned the nickname "skin shaman." Encouraged by her success, Ms. Shar changed her business' name to something more fitting: Kayantra, a combination of the Sanskrit words for "body" and "instrument."
Visits to Kayantra begin with a free consultation, during which Ms. Shar and her team diagnose skin issues and recommend the best possible treatment plan. These plans could include anything from an express facial to the Nirvana Ayurvedic Package, which combines a facial with pressure-point therapy, a foot treatment, and other relaxing services.
