Ayurvedic Treatments

Authentic Ayurvedic treatments made from natural, locally-sourced ingredients are performed by experienced therapists as part of your healing journey. These age-old, time-tested treatments rejuvenate the body and nurture the soul.

For Panchakarma guests, the physicians will prescribe treatments based on imbalances or to treat specific conditions. For Retreat guests, you can select from any of the treatments as an additional option.

Abhyanga Full-body Massage

One of the famous therapies of Ayurveda is Abhyanga, a therapy in which a therapist gives a full-body massage using large amounts of warm, pre-medicated herbal oil and rhythmic hand movements. The herbs are selected based on the particular condition of the patient.

This procedure is done as part of Panchakarma to prepare the body for detoxification. It promotes circulation and lymphatic drainage, relaxes the body while removing toxins, and balances the doshas or bioenergies.
