AYURVEDIC TREATMENTS

Rejuvenating and detoxifying, these treatments are rooted in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda.

 
 

AYURVEDIC HEALTH CONSULTATION

 Ayurveda is a vast ocean of wisdom, and at the same time it is a practical, useful science of health and wellness. In an Ayurvedic consultation, your practitioner will look into your health history; listen to your concerns and goals; observe your body, demeanour, pulse and tongue (these are traditional tools for assessment) and determine your constitution (prakruti) and your current state (vikruti), and develop a health-plan for you. Your health plan may include recommendations for your nourishment, healthy activities, mental/spiritual health practices and herbal remedies. Your commitment to your journey is key to the success of your Ayurvedic health plan, and your practitioner will provide you with support and information to help you succeed.

Initial Consultation – 90 minutes, $140       Follow-Up Session – 45 minutes, $85

SHIRODHARA treatments are rooted in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda. The soothing flow of oil onto the brow reduces anxiety and depression, calms over-activity, and can help to relieve mental exhaustion and insomnia. Shirodhara treatments contain a short amount of balancing hands on massage, but are primarily a no-contact treatment between you and your practitioner. Shirodhara is most effective when paired with Abhyanga massage.

SESAME SHIRODHARA

Warm organic sesame oil, revered as sacred oil in Ayurveda, it is the most traditional shirodhara. It is most beneficial for vata-types when the mind has been hyperactive, restless, anxious or forgetful.
