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.

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.
