Ayurveda Beauty Therapies

"Soundarya Chikitsa"

Since ancient times men and women have turned to the healing powers of nature to turn back the effects of time on the body, improve health and enhance beauty. 

In Ayurveda, the science of Rasayana or rejuvenation is given such importance that it is included as one of the most extensive of the 8 branches of Ayurvedic medicine. 

The goal of Ayurveda is to achieve and maintain perfect health, beauty and experience bliss at all stages of life. The Ayurvedic approach to health and beauty is one of the most important in the world of beauty therapies. Ayurvedic beauty care emphasizes the holistic principle that true beauty is reflected mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually regardless of a person’s body shape or proportions.

Ayurveda emphasizes beauty as being a product of a combination of knowledge of self, positive environment and the development of positive routines and habits. Here, inner and outer beauties are intimately related. The more we nurture ourselves, the more radiant we become physically and expressively. This nurturing includes appropriate diet, lifestyle, herbs, seasonal cleansing, spiritual practice, daily massage and beauty rituals.

Ayurvedic products are designed to offer your skin, mind and body a perfect state of balance between the Doshas: Samya Dosha. All natural, paraben, sulfate, glycol, sarcosine, chloride, surfactant, paraffin, artificial preservative, colour and chemical free Ayurvedic products work to balance the three vital Doshas: Vata – Pitta – Kapha  

When your skin is aggravated by excess Vata Dosha it becomes excessively dry, dehydrated, flaky, wrinkled and lifeless with dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. Vata type skin is thin with small pores which loose moisture quickly, causing dryness leading to wrinkles. Samya Vata products warm, nourish and calm Vata’s cold and dry qualities.

When your skin is aggravated by excess Pitta Dosha it becomes very sensitive and dehydrated. It may be prone to allergic reactions, eczema or acne. Pitta type skin is also prone to freckles, skin pigmentation and broken capillaries. Samya Pitta products cool and soothe and calm Pitta’s hot and intense qualities.   

When your skin is aggravated by Kapha Dosha it becomes excessively oily. A large amount of oil secreted by the sebaceous glands clogs the pores which can lead to cystic acne. Kapha type skin is typically thick with large pores, deep wrinkles and prone to blackheads. Samya Kapha products warm and stimulate Kapha’s cold, dense and unctuous qualities.

If more than one Dosha is aggravated, or even if none are, Samya Tridosha products are formulated to maintain the ideal balance of all three Doshas.

Our complete line of professional and home facial, massage, herbal and aromatherapy products are certified organic whenever possible and are specially formulated and handcrafted by a Registered Advanced Ayurvedic Practitioner to help soothe, nourish, stimulate and rejuvenate.

SOUNDARYA VARDHINI "sound-ar-ya vard-huny" 

(Ayurvedic Facial)

allow 1hr ~ $89

 

Soundarya Vardhani literally means “increasing and prolonging beauty”. The goal of the Ayurvedic facial is to cleanse, tone, nourish, rejuvenate and moisturize the skin while creating a deep experience of calm in both mind and body which radiates from the face.

After a skin analysis, organic products are tailored to your Dosha skin type and to address any existing skin conditions. This holistic therapy begins with the deep cleansing and exfoliating effects of organic flours and Ayurvedic herbs. After a gentle toning an Ayurvedic facial massage activates deep centers of the brain, Chakras, Nadis (energy channels), Marma (vital) and reflex points and facial circulation to indulge your entire self in nourishment. Massage strokes move lymph away from the face while lifting and stimulating skin, smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles. This initiates the flow of fresh blood and nutrients to the deep layers of your skin. Muscle tensions in the neck, shoulders and face are released and energy is rebalanced throughout the body. Herbal aroma-therapeutic Samya Dosha oils nourish the skin and elevate your senses to a blissful plane. The face is then steamed with aroma-therapeutic hot towels. If necessary, gentle extractions may be performed. Face Serum rejuvenation then applies potent oils and essential oils to the Marma points and problem areas to rejuvenate and feed the skin in preparation for a firming and rejuvenating herbal clay mask. The mask gently draws out impurities and excess oils from deep within the pores while feeding the skin with vital nutrients. During this time your hands are massaged paying specific attention to Marma and reflexology points in the area. This skin is then toned and firmed with pure Samya facial toner. Afterwards Samya Skin Creams, nutrient rich moisturisers provide the necessary hydration to keep skin soft, smooth and glowing. The effects of Soundarya Vardhini are enhanced when received with a Netra Rasayana (Ayurvedic eye rejuvenation) treatment. 

Benefits: Soundarya Vardhani has been traditionally used to help: enhance nourishment and cleansing of tissues which makes for a glowing complexion; maintain good tone and elasticity; melt away facial tension and bodily stress; redirect subtle energies relieving stiffness throughout the entire body; prevent sagging of the skin; reduce the appearance of wrinkles; remove facial toxins; revitalize facial tissues and correct skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, blackheads, pigmentation disorders, etc.

Among the five sensory organs, eyes are the most beautifully expressive and interpretive organs we have. Kapha eyes are usually large and clear with thick lashes and prone to congestion and fluid retention. Pitta eyes are sharp, penetrating and sensitive and are prone to itchiness or redness. Vata eyes are small, nervous and dry and are prone to wrinkles and dark rings. The effects of Netra Rasayana are enhanced when received with any facial treatment.

VAKSAS RASAYANA "vuk-shas rus-eye-na" 

(Ayurvedic breast rejuvenation)

allow 1hr ~ $89          massage only 30mins ~ $49 (add on only)  

 

Ayurvedic massage for women has always included extensive work on the breast area. This is done not only as a means to beautify the breast, encourage a delightful shape and for greater comfort but also for deeper therapeutic reasons. Ayurveda, like a number of healing traditions teaches that massage over and around breast tissue improves or helps maintain health in all parts of female reproductive tissue as well as assists in hormonal balancing. Breast massage has been widely used in spas and massage therapy, especially in India and Asia, as a means of healthy lymphatic drainage, breast growth promotion and as a post operative therapy for women who have undergone mastectomies, breast surgery or other trauma to the breast area, since it helps break down scar tissues while stimulating healing and tissue regeneration.

Breast massage is the best way to help the lymphatic system to drain pent up toxins and help to prevent them from building up and contributing to cancer or other ailments. By massaging the breasts on a regular basis, many women have claimed it has enhanced the shape, size and overall attractiveness of their breast, while also giving them a sense of oneness with their femininity and promoting relaxation and peace of mind, as other methods of body massage do. The heart or Anahata Chakra, the seat of Bhakti (devotion) and Prema (divine love), is intimately related to the breasts which each contain a sub-Chakra of Anahata (Hrid and Manas). This Chakra relates strongly to how we nurture each other as well as our selves. The breasts are the organs of love, nurturance, and self-giving. Thus breast, like heart problems on the emotional level may arise as a metaphor for difficulty in giving and/or receiving love and nurturing. Vaksas Rasayana is the perfect opportunity to receive this needed nurturing.

Like many Ayurvedic therapies, Vaksas Rasayana relies on a combination of modalities; Herbal cleansing; Massage, gentle strokes and stimulation of Marma points using Samya Breast Serum; Gentle herbal compresses; The application of rejuvenating Samya Breast Mask with mud and honey and the firming effects of Samya Flower Toners. The massage strokes used are intended to activate the lymphatic system. Together, the points and strokes on the breast tissue help mobilize toxins, fats, and the collection of excess subtle energies and hormones, which are then carried away via the lymph system, allowing for increased blood flow with fresh nutrients to revitalize the breast tissue. Strokes around the tissues, on the neck and above, below and to the sides of the breasts further support this action. The purpose of this is to flush fluids from the breast, (both venous and intercellular), bring nutrition to the tissues and specifically remove the toxins via the lymphatic system. Also, it will enhance the health and elasticity of the support ligaments, which will in turn provide you with better breast support. Toning the chest area will help firm the pectoral muscles thus giving rise to more shape in the upper body. Firmness of the chest is a problem faced by many women especially with age as the chest tissues get looser. Pregnancy and motherhood can further accelerate the process causing the chest to display stretch marks. The regular use of special herbal serums helps further stimulate the breasts into expanding, firming and toning, creating an overall larger look and correcting sagging, droopiness, stretch marks and other traits. Women who discover breast lumps, experience a lot of tenderness, have a lot of fibrocystic tissue or who have had recent breast surgery for any reason should consult with their health care provider before receiving this technique regularly. Because of the intimate nature of this therapy clients may prefer to request a female therapist.

Reported Benefits (after regular use) : Dramatic easing of tenderness associated with monthly cycle, more self confidence about the health of breast tissue, feeling better about being female, softening of scar tissues from surgery, improvement in shape, size and tone of the breasts, feeling deeply and intimately nurtured.
