Ayurvedic Deluxe Royal Facial

Rooted in the traditional beauty practices of Ayurveda, a holistic healing system born in India over 5000 years ago, this facial treatment makes use of organic and handcrafted formulations that deeply cleanse, rejuvenate and enhance skin radiance. The session is personally tailored according to skin doshas and includes ancient Ayurvedic facial massage techniques to support lymph, blood and energetic circulation to reveal your natural beauty.
 

Ayurvedic Facial Massage treats the lymph through the skin, which then prevents an imbalance from arising in the blood stream and stimulates lymphatic drainage from the skin into the circulatory system of the body. If the skin gets dry and toxic from the environment and the lymph becomes congested, the skin will be rendered non-functional. These impurities slotted for lymph and skin removal will be shunted into the muscles, joints and fat cells, creating problems there, and further age the texture of the skin.

The facial includes: cleansing, toning, exfoliation, custom face mask, manual massage, kansa and marma massage. Relax and enjoy warm steamed towels, energy healing and aromatherapy shoulder, neck and scalp massage.

Ayurvedic Doula Postpartum Care & Support

According to Ayurveda nature offers a mother a sacred window for nourishment and deep healing with the first 42 days after childbirth.
This is a time of deep connection, bonding, and total devotion.

The physiological changes that occur during this crucial period of time need to be addressed with love and appropriate care. Ayurveda is a powerful tool that can support mothers during this transitional and expansive time.
