Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life,Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments: movement, transformation, and structure. Known in Sanskrit as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), these primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate. For each element, there is a balanced and imbalanced expression. An important goal of Ayurveda is to identify a person’s ideal state of balance, determine where they are out of balance, and offer interventions using Diet, Herbs, Aromatherapy, Massage Treatments, Music, Meditation and more to reestablish balance.

ABHYANGA (Warm Oil Massage) - Classic Ayurveda Massage
Abhyanga is considered the classic Ayurvedic massage technique to prepare the body for panchakarma (Cleanse and Purification of the body.) Abhyanga is a technique used to oleate the body with herbalized oils through massage. The goal is to balnce the subtgle-body system and its components. The strokes are done with gentle pressure designed to move and activate the vayus (subdoshas). This treatment is nourishing to the senses.
Garshana is a dry skin exfoliation performed with wool, raw silk or terry cloth gloves. This exfoliation treatment is performed quickly over the skin and removes dead skin cells, increases heat and is stimulating the circulation and the lymphatic system. The "rubbing" produces static electricity, which alkalizes the blood and detoxifies the body. It facilitates optimum absorption of healing herbal oils.
