$95.00 - one therapist
$160.00 - two therapists
Abhyanga is the foundation of the detoxification program within Panchakarma. The therapy may be done by a single therapist or a two-therapist team using a synchronized routine. The entire body is oleated, including the scalp and feet. Herbalized oils are used for the massage and essential oils are applied to specific energy points. If indicated, medicinal nasal drops are administered and warm oil is put into the ears.
Purpose: Thoroughly oiling the body, by way of Abhyanga, loosens deep seated metabolic waste materials, and brings elasticity to the body tissues. It then moves these waste materials to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract for removal. It also promotes flexibility in the joints, coordination, and a general sense of well being.
$76.00 using sesame and sunflower oil
$96.00 using Ayurvedic herbalized oil
Shirodhara is the therapeutic administration of warm oils to the center of the forehead in a continuous stream. A blend of sesame-sunflower oil is used or Ayurvedic herbalized oil can be substituted for a $20 additional charge.
Purpose: Shirodhara helps calm the mind and the the nervous system. It can alleviate mental and emotional stress and facilitates the unfolding of clarity and bliss.
This package includes an Abhyanga massage with a single therapist, Svedana (individual herbalized sweat therapy), and Shirodhara treatment.
