Traditional Ayurvedic Treatments
It's ALL about the Oil... ahhhh. The word for oiling the body, in Sanskrit, is Snehana, which means "To Love, To Be Nurtured."
This is a far cry from your typical massage! It's focus is on applying warm, herbal medicated oils to the body with long strokes, which creates deep relaxation. It also encourages lymphatic drainage, improves circulation, stimulates the immune system and the elimination of toxins. It's grounding and pacifying to the nervous system, moisturizes and nurtures, not just the skin, but All tissues in the body.
Lipid soluble oils are used so the body can take them in through the skin like a nutritious meal. While the muscles get some yummy relaxation, the focus of this massage is to integrate the whole body/mind, move the lymph and relax the nervous system.
We have chosen to offer a 2 hour version only as we've found it to be the most beneficial for deep relaxation, which is what this treatment is all about!
Single Therapist: 2 hours $180
Package of 3 Single Therapist: 2 hours $500 ($40 savings)
Note: Abhyanga was often traditionally performed with two therapists for the greatest benefit, however it's not always possible to provide this version of the service. The single therapist version is quite lovely and makes it practical for our clients to receive regularly. When available, we do offer the traditional 4-handed service.
4-handed (2 therapist) 60 minutes $165
4-handed (2 therapist) 90 minutes $225
Note: 4-handed Treatments cannot be booked online, please call the center to book 503-788-3038
Shirodhara is the application of a warm medicated oil streamed continuously over the Third-Eye or Ajna (6th) Chakra. The technique of shirodhara soothes, nourishes and calms the senses as well as the mind and is recommended for chronic headaches, insomnia, anxiety and nervousness. This is especially indicated for those experiencing high and chronic stress and who have difficulty slowing down.
Shirodhara is an effective treatment for relaxation, improving memory and nourishing the hair and scalp. It assists in in providing sound sleep and calms the body and mind. It’s wonderful for reducing stress and nervous tension. Shirodhara drops you into a deep altered state where your mind and body can relax and reorganize its self. The treatment begins with a head, neck and face massage, including the application of Marma Therapy, and ends with massaging the feet.
As with any deeply sedating therapy or practice, we recommend you refrain from any and all unnecessary media after the treatment and engage only in life affirming activities; in other words, if you can, please take the rest of the day off and relax!
1 hour - $130*
*If oil can be reused for next appointment, 10% discount is given.
Ushma Swedana - Herbal Steam**
This service is a special herbal fomentation, or steam canopy therapy, which can be applied following an Abhyanga, as an add on service, to aid in the absorption and assimilation of the medicated oils as well as elimination of toxins through sweat.
Traditional Ayurvedic texts suggest that steam therapy should be preformed with the patient lying down comfortably, with the head and neck exposed, rather than in the tent. This prevents over-heating, and allows for thorough detoxification and absorption.
Herbs and aromatherapy oils are selected per the client's needs. This treatment leaves you smelling and feeling great!
**Contraindicated for pregnant and menstruating women and people with high heat conditions**
Add on to Abhyanga or Abhyanga/Shirodhara combination (not available as a stand alone treatment).
Add-on treatment - $50
