Ayurveda

 

Ayurveda (“Ire-veh-dah”), an ancient healing science from India, is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It aims to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda focuses not only on the treatment and prevention of illness, but on the removal of blockages to experiencing a more vibrant, peaceful, and happy life. Some of its therapeutic approaches include diet, herbs, yoga, breathing, sweating, and massage.

In the transcendent state of bliss, deep transformation and healing can occur.  These Ayurvedic therapies are heavenly as one-time treatments, though they are traditionally given multiple times in a course, and we believe their benefits are greatly enhanced when received in a series.

Our talented therapists and skincare specialists use carefully chosen techniques to conscientiously support each client’s needs.

 You will easily fall into deep relaxation on our memory foam tables and face cradles, both outfitted with ultra-soft linens.  At the end of your massage, you will be treated to a hot towel cleanse for your feet and a hot towel stretch for your neck.

After your experience is complete, your therapist will greet you with cool water to promote hydration and will be present for you to ask questions or offer suggestions for self-care.  

 For all our clients receiving full body massages, facials, or spa packages we provide a locker for your personal belongings, a robe, and spa sandals.  Additionally, bath, body, hair, and skincare products are also available.  Our steam rooms and rain showers are available for use before or after your treatments.  (please note shower and steam room availability is dependent upon current covid protocols and may change without notice) 

 We look forward to offering our space, our presence, and our energy for you to become your most vibrant, centered, and peaceful self.

 

Bliss Therapies

 

Abhyanga

Transport to an ancient time through this energetic choreographed massage with elegant interweaving hand rhythms.  Dosha-specific warm oil in loving amounts is used from the top of your head to the soles of your feet including:   the ears, face, scalp, stomach, and crown shakra.  The massage is done with an Ayurvedic technique to decrease the pressure on your heart and increase circulation and improve energy levels.  Unlike Swedish massage, Abhyanga focuses less on the muscle tissue and more on the skin, lymphatic, and circulatory systems, marma points and energy fields.  This massage is traditionally done with an undraped breast but can easily be done with a breast drape to achieve the same beautiful benefits.  This Ayurvedic massage is said to strengthen and balance the whole physiology, calm the nervous system, and rejuvenate the skin.  This journey will be transformative in bringing you to center.  60 minutes –  $138 

*Arrive early to take a short quiz to determine your Dosha oil blend to transcend into peaceful harmony.

“Dosha” means flaw— “prakruti” is the correct term for constitutional type. Prakruti means “first action,” our inherent nature that tends to influence consciousness, activity, habits. When in balance, they maintain health of body and guide body processes.

Ayurvedic Skin Brushing and Medicated Oil Treatment

Illuminate your skin with a full body scrub performed with a bristle brush to detoxify the body, refresh your skin, and revive the mind.  After your body brushing is complete you will be anointed with one of our hand-crafted Ayurvedic oil blends that is in alignment with your Dosha.  Instructions on Dry Brushing along with your bristle brush will be waiting for you at the end of your experience to take home.  Detoxify, stimulate, refresh.  30 minutes – $65

Shirodhara

Expand your consciousness and quite the mind in a profound way.  A gentle stream of warm sesame oil is poured on the forehead at the location of the third eye and flows continuously for the entire treatment.  You will drift away into complete tranquility as your body and mind surrender to calmness and deep relaxation.  As the third eye is awakened, prana (life force) begins to flow freely, and channels are cleaned, and blockages are removed.  Become awakened. 30 minutes – $95  

 

The Full Bliss Immersion

Transcend consciousness as you experience this Ayurvedic ritual to maintain balance and harmony between your body, mind, and spirit.   Your therapist will be your guide as you experience these ancient treatments.  You’ll begin your transformation with a brief chat between you and your therapist followed by a dry skin brushing with raw silk gloves (Garshana).  Your body will then be prepared to receive the choreographed “dance of the hands” massage to strengthen and balance your system (Abyhanga).  This beautiful, rhythmic massage will make way for detoxification through a steam tent treatment (Swedana).  Mind and body will awaken while a gentle stream of warm sesame oil is poured on your forehead at the location of your third eye (Shirodhara).  Your treatment will conclude in our Sangha room with a foot bath of your choice to slowly come back into the world.  We suggest taking the rest of the day and celebrating the “sweetness” of life.  approximately 3.5 hours – $408
