Ayurveda 101 -
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems developed over 5,000 years ago in India. It is based on the concept that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. With proper diet, yoga, massage, aromatherapy, music and meditation one can achieve balance. Ayurvedic treatments are designed around a system of Prakriti and Vikruti. Your Prakriti is your mind-body constitution (this is what we are born with and does not change) in the form of 3 doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. We all have a combination of all doshas but one is typically most prominent in each individual. Take the test to find out your dosha here.
Your Vikruti is your current state of imbalance which changes frequently. So one may have a Pitta Prakruti but have a Vata Vikruti. The western world has more vata imbalance than any other due to our busy lifestyles. The treatments below will be rolled out at East in October and are designed to bring your dosha back to balance.
Ayurvedic Massage - Anoint your mind, body and spirit. Abhyanga is the name of this full body treatment. The Sanskrit word "sneha" means both oil and love. This massage is meant to deliver a healthy dose of love to your body, mind and soul.
Synergy - Our Four Handed Massage is a rhythmic Ayurvedic treatment performed by two therapists with warm sesame oil infused with herbs to soothe your dosha. We encourage you to indulge in this unparalleled blissful experience.
Shirodhara - A steady stream of warm oil is carefully poured from a copper vessel onto the third eye point allowing the oil to run into the hairline giving you a lustrous hair treatment while your vata is restored back to balance.
