It’s easy to get stressed out in today’s always-connected world, especially if you’re living inside the walls of someone else’s house and stealing their WiFi. Get away from it all with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $85 for a 30-minute Ayurvedic consultation and a 60-minute therapeutic body treatment (a $210 value)
- $59 for a 60-minute Ayurvedic facial with a therapeutic body treatment and steam therapy (a $155 value)
During the consultation, a practitioner will assess your health and detail your current imbalances before beginning the full-body therapy ritual. The ritual, also known as external oleation therapy, involves applying herbal oils over the whole body to stimulate vital points, aiming to boost circulation and alleviate aches and stress. Rather than a consultation, customers can pair this treatment with a deeply exfoliating 60-minute facial, also packed with herbal remedies.
Santhigram Wellness Kerala Ayurveda Center
Amid the thriving Indian marketplace on Devon Avenue sits Santhigram Wellness Kerala Ayuerveda Center, a satellite location of a renowned healing center in India. A mash-up of the Sanskrit words ayur (meaning life and longevity) and veda (science), Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is still widely practiced today as a side-effect free alternative to modern medicine.
On Devon, patients can find ancient treatments used for both preventive and curative purposes. An herbal steam treatment known as Swedana helps the body release impurities through perspiration. In another treatment, Shirodhara, the practitioner pours a steady stream of warm aromatic oils over the forehead to calm the mind and soothe the nervous system. Though the primary goal of Ayurveda is to restore internal balance, the center offers a variety of holistic and aesthetic treatments as well, including anti-aging packages and hair treatments that reduces hairs' tendencies to turn grey or into a nest of snakes.
