Shirodhara

Shirodhara is one of Ayurveda's classic rejuvenation therapies that balances and stabilizes the mind. Warm sesame oil or specially prepared herbal oil is poured in a thin steady stream directly onto the forehead. Shirodhara purifies the mind, enhances blood circulation to the brain, alleviates anxiety, reduces headaches, improves sleep and expands awareness. Shirodhara can be administered on its own or added to an abhyanga or vishesh massage.

The prices below are for shirodhara using sesame oil. If you prefer to use Banyan Botanicals herbalized oil for your treatment there is an additional charge of $30 to cover the cost of the oil. In both cases the oil is yours to take home and can be used for future treatments or as a body moisturizer.

Kansa Vataki Ayurvedic Foot Treatment

This foot treatment begins with a warm herbalized wrap and is followed by a traditional ayurvedic foot massage using a kansa bowl. The kansa bowl is named for the sacred metal from which it is made, an ancient alloy of very pure copper and tin with trace amounts of zinc. Because of the intrinsic properties of kansa, this treatment gently detoxifies and cools the body by pulling acidity out. In addition, foot massage with the kansa bowl stimulates all of the organ systems of the body, especially the eyes.
