RESTORING BALANCE WITH AYURVEDA

Glow Abhyanga Body Massage is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that involves massage of the body with large amounts of warm oil. The oil is often pre-medicated with herbs for specific conditions. Abhyanga is performed either by one or two therapists. The stroke of this form of massage differs for each individual. Traditionally, the technique was used in pancha karma (detox therapy) in order to detoxify the body.

GLOW SWEDANA Steam Therapy
Tented herbal steam bath
Treatment Time: Approximately 10-20 min
(Offered only as a part of The Glow Bliss Therapy . Not offered as a stand alone service)
Swedana is an individualized herbal steam bath, traditionally given after an abhyanga treatment. Swedana is a unique treatment where the head and the area of the heart are kept cool during the steam bath while the body is heated to remove impurities found deep within the tissues. The process opens the tissues of the body with heat saturation and oil. When the tissues open, toxins or ama, deep seated in the body, can be expelled out of the skin. This helps reduce inflammation, promotes healing and improves blood circulation and restoration. This treatment is not appropriate for people with heart disease or hypertension as the heat may cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.

Warm aromatic oil over forehead & scalp
Price: $80 - $100
Treatment Time: Approximately 25 - 50 min with additional 10 min for relaxation time
Shirodhara is a restorative therapy traditionally used as one of the 5 steps of a Pancha Karma(detox) therapy. The liquids used in Shirodhara depend on what is being treated, and can include oil, milk, buttermilk and coconut water. A controlled flow of warm oil (or other liquid) is gently poured over the third eye chakra. The oil then streams down the crown of the head, which magnifies the senses, disperses negative electrical impulses that accumulate in the forehead because of stress, reverses imbalances within the body and rejuvenates the face and calms the nervous system. This procedure helps to improve cognitive function allowing you to feel invigorated, peaceful, with a clear and calm mind. Shirodhara profoundly coordinates and calms the mind, body and spirit. As most Ayurvedic Therapies have their impact on the physical and energy sheaths of the subtle body system, Shirodhara most effectively purifies the mental sheath, promoting a calm and balanced state of the mind.
