Derived from an ancient Indian tradition, these treatments are designed to help loosen toxins in the body and release excesses. The goal in all the treatments is to restore balance and reestablish calm and harmony. They are deeply cleansing and purifying to the mind, body, and soul. The treatments have a rhythm and flow that covers the entire body. Herbal oils are used which target your individual imbalances.
The individually prepared herbal-oil application (abhyanga) nourishes the skin, aids in removing impurities, stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation, and relaxes the mind and body, promoting overall healing. This treatment enhances the ability of nutrients to reach starved cells and also removes stagnant waste. You will relax on the massage table after your oil treatment while a light tent is placed over you with your head staying out. Steam is started and you are kept cool with ice in a dry cloth placed on the heart and pubic bone and cold cloths over the head. This allows the vital organs to remain cool during the Swedna. You will relax for a few minutes at the close of the treatment. Includes your Dosha consultation
