The Ayurvedic treatments listed below are performed by two practitioners (Kammi plus one) and in tandem. By massaging both the right and left side of your body at the same time, both your right and left brain become balanced, creating a feeling of true bliss and well being. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to offer these beautiful treatments due to lack of practitioners. If you are interested in being trained please send me a message and check the web site for updates.
Abhyanga (abby-anga) Meaning “Loving hands” this incredibly relaxing warm oil procedure is designed to promote the release of toxins from the cells and increase circulation to the subcutaneous tissues while experiencing deep bliss.
There are three types of full body Abhyanga - Vata, Pitta & Kapha which vary in depth of stroke and speed of movement and last from 35 minutes to 1 hour.
Shiro Abhyanga - shiro (head)This procedure can be delivered prior to the full body Abhyanga and focuses on the Marma points located around the head, neck, shoulders and face while loosening tight muscles and promoting blood circulation.
Shirodhara - shiro (head) dhara (dripping of oil like a thread)
A steady stream of herbalised oil is poured onto specific Marma points on the forehead, calming the mind and soothing the nervous system.
This procedure follows the Abhyanga and gives the recipient the experience of a deep meditative state. This is a 30 minute procedure.
Pizzichili or Royal treatment This is the ultimate experience for deep relaxation. A combination of massage and heat as gallons of warm oil are poured in a continuous stream while being gently massaged onto the body. During this treatment the oil penetrates through the skin deeply into the body, releasing deep seated aches and pains and promoting flexibility in the joints. This is a 2 hour procedure.
Usna Vasana (Hot toweling) A deeply cleansing procedure using hot towels to clean the body leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Here's what people are saying...
"This massage was the epitomy of feeling cared for and loved. The soothing unison of two massagers working on me unlocked stress that I have been holding onto for a long time. The process allowed me to let go of the stress in a gentle and kind manner. I felt at peace afterwards." Ania-Professor, University of Alberta Engineering
"The treatment was wonderful. I really liked how harmonious it was. It felt almost otherwordly! The interaction with the girls was great and they were clearly very knowledgeable. You felt pampered and the centre of attention but not in a superficial way. At the end I was very tired but also very present and grounded in my body. It was divine and definetly something I can't wait to do again!" Ruth-Lawyer, Legal Aid of Alberta
