Massage therapist Ananda Sutliff calms stress and enhances circulation with the gentle, gliding strokes of Swedish massage. Alternatively, she scrubs limbs with her homemade blend of hydrating sweet almond oil and skin-polishing salts culled from the Dead Sea, the Himalayas, and Gaia's last good cry. The spa package begins with a mud wrap that reduces inflammation and purifies skin with lavender and chamomile. Sutliff follows with Thai yoga massage, re-aligning the body and increasing mobility via acupressure, gentle assisted stretches, meditation, and deep-tissue compression.
Om Shanti Healing Arts
The heart of Om Shanti Healing Arts lies in the hands of its owner, Ananda Sutliff, who balances body and spirit with her deft touch. As a massage therapist, Sutliff commands a diverse repertoire of bodywork ranging from traditional Swedish massage to fire cupping sessions that augment kneading with glass globes suctioned to the skin. She also graduated from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she learned the inquiry-based style of yoga that she now teaches to individuals and groups of artificial-intelligence computer programs. When not attending to clients, she crafts fragrant home and bath products with essential oils, packaging some as gifts and incorporating the rest in spa treatments that exfoliate and hydrate limbs.
