These gemstones' piezoelectric effect (when warmed) is that they emit far infrared radiation which penetrates the skin and causes cellular regeneration and a sense of well-being. The warm stones flow with each stroke, flipping, spinning, and pressing the muscles and marmani (vital energy points), improving circulation and muscle tone, while the cool stones relieve inflammation, leading to a deep sense of peace and contentment.

Ayurveda Lymphatic Detoxification Therapy: Garshana & Cupping

Derived from Ayurveda, the oldest system of medicine of which we have written record, Lymphatic Detoxification is light-touch relaxation massage with profound effects on the lymph, nervous, and endocrine systems. Your treatment begins with a warm aromatherapy foot soak and scrub followed by garshana (whole-body dry brushing with raw silk or textured gloves) to remove dead skin cells, encourage micro circulation to the skin, and stimulate lymph flow. After a nurturing soft-touch massage application of handmade natural phytotherapy (plant-based medicine) cream, varying diameters of cups are placed on the skin and pressure removed within the cups as they slide along nerve and lymph pathways, alleviating pain, reducing scar tissue and adhesions in the fascia, removing stagnation in the tissues, and promoting circulation and detoxification.

Ayurveda Consult

An Ayurveda Consult is the most extensive one hour personal and health history you may ever experience, followed by one hour of relaxing Ayurvedic Massage & Bodywork.  You'll leave with an outline of healthy nutrition, phytotherapy (plant-based wellness products,) massage/bodywork, yoga and lifestyle changes you can implement daily to affect the changes you seek.

The exam portion is a thorough physical, mental, and spiritual analysis, focusing on all areas of your life from what how and when you eat to your relationships, aspirations, and ideals. Your National Ayurvedic Medical Association Practitioner may also run a full set of vitals, palpate/auscultate/tapote vital organs, listen to all layers of your pulse, examine your eyes, tongue, skin, nails, posture, voice and cadence of speech, and analyze your urine, sweat, feces, menses, circadian rhythms and other functions, perhaps even request labwork, to determine patterns of balance and imbalance within your physiology.

Your Practitioner is dedicated to unearthing the root cause behind any signs/symptoms you may be experiencing. To affect change, you will be given the appropriate Ayurvedic Medicine to implement in your daily life, including any combination of the following:

  • nutrition and phytotherapy (plant-based medicine)
  • pranayama (breathing therapies)
  • mudra (hand postures, mental focusing therapy)
  • mantra & japa (repetition of sanskrit, mental concentration therapy)
  • yoga asana (gentle sequences of movement, physical therapy)
  • yama & niyama (behavioral modification/mental strengthening)
  • meditation
  • garshana (dry brushing)
  • lepana (detoxification with herbal pastes)
  • snehana (oil massage, also translates from sanskrit as ‘love’)
  • swedana (steam therapy)
  • netra basti & tratak (eye cleansing)
  • nasya (nasal cleansing)
  • shirodhara (warm medicated oils poured over the forehead)
  • rakta moksha (donating blood to a blood bank as selfless service)
  • pancha karma (purification/detoxification therapies)
  • seva (selfless service, many options)

This is completely natural healthcare, and as such requires you to take responsibility for your own health and well-being in seeking balanced wholesome dinacharya (daily routine) as well as ishvara pranidhana (present moment awareness). In better words, you are the key to your own health, and you are the only true obstacle to the same.
