Body Wise 90-Minute Treatment
CORE Myofascial therapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain and tightness due to injury or age. This treatment addresses the complexity of pain through the matrix of connective tissue that is embedded throughout the body. Taken in a series, this therapy reduces neck, shoulder and spinal deficits, increases range of motion and improves posture.
Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultation
This service is for people who are looking to improve their health and well-being. Whether you are looking for relief from chronic pain, insomnia or anxiety, to name a few, Ayurveda can help. This is a systematic science that places attention upon the whole person and their relationship to their environment. Nutrition, lifestyle management and stress relief through yoga and meditation are part of my treatment plan.
Ayurvedic Bodywork Therapies
Part of a broader, complex, holistic tradition from India that has developed over centuries, Ayurvedic bodywork is designed to fully integrate mind, body and spirit. I use herbal oils from India whose complex formulas address a variety of issues, including but not limited to: muscular/skeletal issues, fatigue, depression and anxiety.
Traditional Oil Massage with Exfoliation This treatment, called Garshana/Abhyanga is an ancient technique featuring dry brushing with raw silk gloves followed by warmed herbal oil that has been chosen for your specific constitution. Deeply relaxing and lasting treatment that nourishes the body on many levels.
Therapeutic Marma Treatment
Marma are secret vital points which can only be found on the body, that influence our mind and body. This treatment equalizes the physiology and nourishes the body by creating changes which relax the body and mind; introducing proper flow of prana. Results from marma therapy may include: improved immune system response, decreased chronic muscular pain, coherent heart rate, which improves over all health.
Warm compresses are applied to areas of the body, notably the neck and shoulders, which specifically aid in the reduction of anxiety and stress. The moist heat combined with Ayurvedic vital point massage produce a calming and sedating effect on the Central Nervous System. This is a one-hour treatment derived from traditional bodywork therapies of India, using traditional herbal aromatic oils.
