Ayurvedic Medicine 

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.” It stems from the ancient Vedic culture and was taught for many thousands of years in an oral tradition from accomplished masters to their disciples.

Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance.

Ayurvedic Facial Treatment

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, manual massage, kansa marma massage and tailored facial mask. Relax and enjoy warm steamed towels, energy healing and aromatherapy shoulder, neck and scalp massage.
