Burke Williams Spa Shirodhara Aurevedic Treatment

These time-honored Ayurvedic body treatments are healing on many levels. They use traditional herbal blends and warm aromatheraputic essential oils, that will calm the mind, balance the three doshas and create a profound sense of bliss and contentment.

SHIRODHARA “Head-flow” – Profound – Flowing – Clarity

This deeply soothing traditional Ayurvedic treatment calms the central nervous system and integrates the mind and body to achieve a heightened state of awareness, relaxation and contentment. The treatment begins with selecting the herbal massage oil specific to the mind-body constitution, or dosha. Guests will be expertly massaged with the warm herbal oil ending with the Shirodhara, a constant and gentle stream of oil poured over the third eye to create a profound state of happiness and mental clarity.

ANANDA “Bliss” – Rhythmic – Hydrating – Vitality

Traditional Ayurvedic practice focuses on the 5 energy channels of the head, feet and hands. Ayurvedic herbs are applied to the five points followed by a nourishing, rhythmic flowing massage with heated theraputic oils. Special emphasis is placed on the Marma points, the vital energy points that move electromagnetic energy through the body. Finally the traditional Ayurvedic Balancing Bowl is used on the feet to balance the doshas and remove excess heat or energy from the body.

BALANCING BOWL ENHANCEMENT “Balance” – Realign – Uplifting – Peace

Made from three of earth’s metals, the Balancing Bowl contains specific properties to balance vital subtle energies within the body. Addressing the needs of the three doshas, silver balances Pitta, copper balances Kapha and brass balances Vata.  Performed with any of our massage treatments, this Ayurvedic enhancement will leave the guest relaxed with a profound sense of contentment.
