This 2 1/2 to hour therapy is combination of abyhanga, shirodhara and swedana that takes the mind, body and spirit on an inner journey of relaxation and mental purification.
Your entire body is saturated with warm herbalized oil that allows for the trans-dermal absorption of the herbs used in the massage. The oil is also chosen to meet your body’s unique needs. Abhyanga is a calming, rhythmic, process of pushing the oil deep into your tissues with broad firm movements. This process opens all the paths and channels of communication in the body and will leave you in clear, deeply relaxed state.
Swedana (steam tent)
Traditionally received after an abyhanga massage – an herbal steam treatment which is a perfect combination to clear lymphatic stagnation by inducing a mild sweat and opens pores allowing herbaloils to enter into deeper tissues. Also helps alleviate joint pain. Contraindicated in high blood pressure.
‘Shiro’ means head, and ‘dhara’ means to flow. This is a profoundly soothing treatment consisting of a continuous, relaxing stream of warm oil flowing over your forehead. Shirodhara calms the central nervous system, quiets mental chatter and alters brainwaves to bring you into a meditative state. Your breathing will deepen and tension will melt away. Shirodhara is one of the most beneficial treatments for those with an over-active mind. Once the brain is quieted, more life energy, oxygen and nutrients flow more freely to the brain. The result is better brain function, mood stability and improved stress handling ability.
This can be added as a close to a one hour massage, for a total of 90 minutes.

...especially for those stressed and those that are caregivers or have been caregivers in the past. You need to take care of yourself to avoid burn out and ill health so that you can help care for your loved ones. As a past caregiver myself for my mother, I understand the emotional and physical toll on your mind and body from such a demanding role. I'm sure you can relate to trouble sleeping, problems with focusing throughout the day and weight gain. We want to have more energy, be more centered and stop buying more pants because we just can't zip them up anymore!
