ABHYANGA SNEHAN and SWEDANA - Herbal oil massage and steam
In this therapy warm medicated herbal oils are used for a whole body massage to help pacify Vata. Ayurvedic Snehan massage relieves muscle tightness and tension, joint aches and pains and improves blood circulation. This is followed by a steam therapy which allows the medicated oils to be further absorbed by the body.

PINDA SWEDANA – Rice and herb bolus treatment
This treatment is performed after Snehan and consists of massaging medicated herbal boluses of rice and milk over the entire body. It improves blood circulation, muscle tone, strengthens the body and restores vigor. It is traditionally used for many neurological disorders, nourishes tissues and promotes vitality and longevity.

SHIRODHARA – Mental rejuvenation
A profoundly relaxing treatment in which a steady soothing stream of herbalized warm oil is poured across the forehead. It pacifies the subtle aspects of all the doshas, especially Vata, nourishes the nervous system, promotes relaxation and tranquility, and improves clarity, comprehension, and problems with insomnia.  When done in a series, it can help with certain neurological and mental imbalances. Shirodhara strengthens sensory organs, reduces stress and has a profound effect upon the consciousness.

SHIROTARPANA – Head treatment
In this treatment medicated herbal oil is soothingly massaged into the head and scalp area. A warm herbal decoction and light steam to the scalp allow the herbal oil to be absorbed, thereby pacifying the tension held in the head. Helps with hair loss, premature graying of the hair, headaches, stress and insomnia.

NETRA BASTI – Eye rejuvenation

A nourishing and rejuvenating therapy for the eyes.  It is a special treatment in which the eyes are bathed in pure ghee.  It is performed by filling a 'dam' (made out of wheat dough and placed around the eyes) with soothing ghee. Netra Basti helps relieve eyestrain (esp. from computer screens), improves vision, pacifies problems due to Vata and Pitta such as dry burning eyes and other eye ailments.
60 min: $60 for both eyes

KATI BASTI – Lumbo-Sacral rejuvenation
This is a localized treatment for relieving and nourishing the lower back.  After snehan massage, the lumbo sacral area is saturated in a 'dam' of specially prepared herbal oil.  This therapy helps to relieve the discomfort of nervous and muscular aches and pains.  It pacifies one of the primary sites of Vata, nourishes displaced discs, relieving pain, soreness and tension in that area.

NATURAL FERTILITY MANAGEMENT
This is a safe and empowering method of achieving or avoiding conception, where a woman learns to understand and cooperate with her fertility cycles by observing bodily signs, and then combines this knowledge with her personal biorhythmic lunar cycles.  Using the kit we provide, a woman can then choose what to do for the few days a month she is fertile.
