Full Body Massage and Marma Therapy - Marma Abhyanga
1h 20min - 1h 50min
Marma Abhyanga a warm oil massage that is quite different from the Western notion of massage. With Abhyanga the aim is to push the oil into the pores of the skin with long strokes on the long bones and circular motions on the joints. The qualities of warm oil are the opposite of Vata and so calm and pacify the nervous system via the bodies largest organ, the skin. During Abhyanga energy points (Marma) are stimulated, which is a powerful way of clearing energetic blockages.
Herbal Oil Enema - Matra Basti
Basti is the rectal introduction of oils into the large intestine. Medicated oil is introduced directly into the colon as an enema, typically used to treat Vata dosha. From the large intestine the herbs can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream without being weakened by the digestive system.
Deep Relaxation Therapy - Shirodhara
Shirodhara is the systematic, continual pouring of warm oil back and forth across the forehead. Shirodhara can have profound effects on relaxation and is an excellent stress reliever and Vata reducer.
