Himalayan Sound Healing meets Shirodara
Shirodara is an Ayurvedic treatment concentrating on the third eye and helps eliminate stress and insomnia by balancing the penal gland. In the Himalayan culture sound was used as a powerful tool for healing, meditation and self-transformation. Thibetan singing bowls produce a distinct sound through vibration creating a positive effect towards spiritual healing. This unique signature treatment subtly combines the pouring of warm medicated oil on the third eye and sound healing, leading to a higher level of relaxation and ‘lacher prise’.
The Spirit of Kerala
This journey starts with a private consultation to determine the guest’s dosha. It continues with a scalp massage, followed by a full body massage with a hot compress made with fresh and local herbs, and ends with an ayurvedic body scrub.
A traditional Ayurvedic treatment that helps maintain overall health and creates a deep feeling of stability, warmth and comfort. The oil prepared and used for this treatment will be chosen according to the guest’s dosha thus creating a tailor-made experience.
Shiatsu and Marma Touch
The shiatsu technique works on the meridian lines, which are the energy lines of the body. The marma points are the juncture where two or more body structure elements, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints meet. With this treatment the marma points will be stimulated with a hot compress to balance the prana or energy in the body and the shiatsu will help increase energy flow. It’s a revitalizing experience ideal to eliminate tiredness caused by travelling and daily stress.
The perfect way to start your day. Laughing helps the brain release “happy” hormones and increases the intake of oxygen. It is a funny way to do cardio without a personal trainer.
