Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old science of life, a traditional medicine native to India developed with the intention of restoring the most subtle elements of the mind, body and spirit into a balanced state of peace and harmony.
Abhyanga, is an individualized full body massage using warm, pure, herbal medicated oils that aim to promote cellular restoration and longevity through nourishment and strengthening of the nervous system and all bodily tissues. This is followed by a full body therapeutic herbal steam (swedana) to facilitate the release of toxins and metabolic wastes. If necessary nasal drops are administered to clear the breathing channels (nasya), and warm oil is put into the ears to relieve dryness and pacify the senses, creating inner peace and integration.
After a whole-body massage, a slow steady stream of herbal medicated liquid is poured over the 6th and 7th chakra area, (also associated with pituitary, pineal and hypothalamus glands), thus contributing to the regulation of important hormones and neurotransmitters. It has profound effect on the mind and the autonomic nervous system, and therefore, is very helpful with lots of conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, hyperactive mind, irritability, depression, hypertension, and many more. It promotes deep clarity and calmness, balancing and restoring body systems.

A deeply meditative session that works at a profound level to clear you of any negative energy or attachments.
It’s the ancient way of healing using different tones, vibrations, frequencies and voice. It uses the power of sound to restore one’s mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance.
In this session you will be guided into a small meditation doing some breathing work where you will feel relaxed and surrender to the sound waves from the different instruments entering your brain and moving into a deeper Alpha state. Sound will speak to each of you in a unique and personal way letting you travel through your own inner being and feel your own healing work harmonizing and balancing your mind, body and soul.
Sound Healing is very effective because it influences the emotional and physical body. Emotional imbalances are at the root of many physical diseases and when we heal the emotional body, the physical symptoms disappear. Take the Sound Journey and Feel the Universe Speak to You!
