Abhyanga ~ (ah-bee-yun-guh)
Warm, therapeutic oil is applied over the entire body followed by a specific sequence of strokes according to the flow of energy in all parts of the body. Endowed with detoxifying, nourishing, toning and calming effects, Abhyanga is much more than an oil massage. This treatment encourages removal of toxins on a deep cellular level, stimulates lymphatic tissue and creates a feeling of contentment and balance as well as supports tissue growth for an overall healing experience. It can be done with one therapist, or for the ultimate experience, with two therapists working in synchronicity. It is often the precursor of other Ayurvedic treatments.

Shirodhara ~ (sheer-oh-dar-uh)
A continuous stream of warm, herbal oil pours on the forehead and crown. Deeply balancing to the mind and nervous system. This treatment begins with a neck & scalp massage followed by a brushing of the hair to stimulate the hair follicles and promote deep relaxation. It also has the side benefits of making your hair luxuriously soft, is used to prevent hair loss and helps promotes new hair growth. Shirodhara produces a balancing effect on all body systems. This treatment traditionally follows Abhyanga, or can be added to a therapeutic massage. More information about Shirodhara.
