This exquisite treatment package combines three traditional therapies: Abhyanga, Svedana, and Shirodhara. Practiced together, this luxurious treatment is known to provide systemic balancing, deep tissue lubrication, nervous system and endocrine system healing. Bliss Therapy (the name says it all!) significantly reduces physical and mental stress disorders, anxiety, depression, hypertension, physical stiffness and weakness, Vata and Pitta mental/emotional agitation. You will arise from this treatment feeling completely restored and utterly at peace with yourself.
Unique to Ayurveda, this two-person/four hand choreographed massage utilizes medicinal ayurvedic herbal oils to deliver nourishment to the bodily tissues, relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind. Because each body type is unique, the oils are created with specific herbs to meet your personal needs. The highly specialized movements of Abhyanga massage are designed to correct the movement of Vata Dosha throughout the body, stimulate the movement of lymphatic fluid and release ama (toxins) from the tissues.
Shirodhara is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind. Warm shirodhara oil is streamed continuously over the forehead, taking the participant on a journey deep within. Shirodhara is the signature treatment for all nervous system, anxiety, tension, depression and mental disorders.
Following your Abhyanga and Shirodhara, you receive an exquisite herbal steam treatment that will leave you feeling clear, rejuvenated and wonderfully moisturized. Medicinal herbs like Lavender, Chamomile, Bay Leaf, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Lemongrass help to clear the channels, relax the muscles and nurture the senses.
Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Therapies reverse the depletion, exhaustion and weakness due to Asatmya: lifestyle and diet choices not supporting your physiology, mind, nervous system and soul. Well defined and executed therapies ignite a stronger immunological response previously extinguished by the effects of long term disease, disharmony and distress. Rejuvenation Therapies allow you to remember your true nature as spirit.
Marma Point Massage
Marma Points are pranic power points located within the body, areas of concentrated life-force energy. Proper massage of these points balances the flow of energy through the muscles, joints, organs and systems of both the physical and subtle body. Accessing the subtle energy of Marma points reconnects you to your very own energy grid allowing the nervous system to function with greater ease, the organs to function with greater efficiency...it’s like bringing all the instruments of a symphony to play together rather than in isolation…it’s really that profound.
Completely unique to Ayurveda is this powerfully effective massage treatment for sinus and upper-respiratory conditions. Health challenges arising from seasonal allergies, chronic lung infections, bacterial build-up stand no chance against this upper-chest and facial lymphatic drainage massage. This Nasya treatment is a Satmya signature treatment developed after studying with many different Vaidyas and master aromatherapists. Whether it’s agonizing and recurring allergy problems or dullness and torpor of the mind, this therapy unblocks the channels and uplifts the mind. There is no other quite like it!
Bastis are an ancient treatment used to alleviate inflammation in joints and depletion of organs. For this therapy, a combination of medicated oils, ghee and essential oils are poured within a raised circle of dough to saturate and nourish the specific area of concern. Bastis are an effective, non-surgical intervention to address arthritis, expedite post-surgical healing, replenish exhausted adrenal glands………..there is an endless list of Bastis to employ on your journey to pain-free living.
