GARSHANA
Dry Brush + Oil + Steam

Garshana, Ayurveda dry massage, is done a natural bristle body brush. Dry massage is recommended for people who have signs of fatigue, sluggishness, or are feeling physical or mental dullness. Additionally, it exfoliates and brightens skin.

 

Garshana supports the removal of cellular waste products from the body by stimulating lymphatic cleansing.

 

Each treatment begins with Nasya, an herbal blend dropped and massaged into the nostrils to open your mental and spiritual passages for renewal. Next is the dry massage, followed by . Ayurveda oils gently applied to your skin for absorption.

 

Finally, you take Swedana (steam) to eject toxins while the nourishing oil penetrates your skin. In addition to lubricating the skin, warm oil after dry massage helps to calm mental anxiety.

Relaxing Massage

ABHYANGA
Oil Massage + Steam

Abhyanga is revitalizing and detoxifying full body massage. The treatment begins with a clarifying Nasya that opens you to the experience by clearing your nasal and mental passages. Ayurvedic organic oils infused with herbs are then applied in large quantities to nourish the skin and penetrate at the cellular level. Circulation of the arterial and lymphatic systems are stimulated. Abhyanga simultaneously nurses and nurtures the body, while increasing its vitality. The mind and body are lulled into a deep state of relaxation, as toxins loosen from deep tissue and mobilize for elimination. Following the oil massage, you relax as steam (swedana) further expels the toxins from your body while simultaneously promoting full absorption of the oil nutrients into your skin. Abhyanga relieves fatigue and promotes sound sleep. Your nervous system will be profoundly calmed and rejuvenated.
