Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old “science of life,” aimed to prevent and heal disease or imbalances within the body. The foundation of Ayurveda resides in the belief that five master elements (space, air, fire, water and earth) comprise everything within and outside of our bodies and create three primary patterns known as doshas:
- Vata movement and change in our body and mind (space, air)
- Pitta regulates digestion and metabolism (fire, water)
- Kapha protects the integrity and structure of our body and mind (water, earth)
Every individual has a unique quantity and quality of each Dosha and underlying elements. It is important to maintain their original state of balance as it is how the body stays healthy. Our Ayurveda Body Therapists are trained to find where any imbalances may exist for you and create a customized rejuvenation therapy treatment to bring balance back to the doshas.
Your Ayurveda service will begin with a consultation along with two or more of the following timeless Ayurveda rituals:
- Foot soak
- Tingsha bells
- Sensory experience
- Tumeric gargle
- Pranayama (breath)
For maximum results, we recommend Ayurveda services to be incorporated into your lifestyle on a continual basis.
An in-depth look and assessment of an individual’s mind, body and spirit with a focus on three body types – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Through a 60 minute discussion about diet and lifestyle, an Aurvedaic Therapist will make a recommendation in a 30 minute follow up session that will help an individual achieve balance.
Warm herbal oil is poured in a continuous stream over the forehead and scalp to revitalize the mind and provide an elevated state of relaxation. A full body oleation (abhyanga) is followed by a shirodhara marma head and scalp treatment to allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to release neuro-hormones from the nervous system. This treatment is designed for individuals looking to experience an ultimate level of relaxation, improve memory or insomnia.
This luxurious full body oleation (herbal oil therapy) is an excellent remedy to everyday stress. Warm oil accompanies gentle, swift strokes that balance energetic centers in the body and soothe the nervous system. This treatment is designed for individuals looking for stress relief and gentle detoxification.
Being that Abhyanga is the foundation to multiple Ayurvedic practices, a modified level of this experience is incorporated into Shirodara, Marma, Swedana and Udwarthana services.

Marma therapy is an ancient Indian practice whose focus is the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purposes of supporting the healing process. An abhyanga treatment is followed by marma therapy with warm herbal oils to clear stress from muscles, soft tissues, face, and vital points of the body where physical and mental discomfort and disease can build. This treatment is designed for individuals looking for stress relief, anti-aging and relief from nervous system ailments.
This invigorating skin polish treatment both nourishes and purifies the body. A full body exfoliation with warm herbal powders in combination with oleation encourages a deeper detoxification to leave you glowing and feeling lighter. This treatment is designed for individuals looking for stress relief, detoxification, cellulite and skin toning.
A full body Abhyanga treatment will begin the detoxification and rejuvenation process. Your relaxation will continue through an herbal steam bath as moist heat will “soften” toxins in the body and release from the skin. This treatment is designed for individuals looking for stress relief, detoxification and weight loss support.
Complimentary with any 110 minute Ayurveda service, your therapist will select one or more of the following ancient Ayurveda rituals based upon your dosha.
A unique eye treatment with purified oil designed to relieve tiredness and improve eyesight.
An application of herbal oils into the nostrils to cleanse sinuses and treat migraines, chronic colds, allergies, headaches and chest congestion.
Warm herbalized oil is gently poured into the ears to sharpen hearing, remove impurities and improve middle ear health.
