Ayurvedic Spa Treatments on Kauai
The TriHealth Ayurveda Spa offers treatments for the rejuvenation of mind and body using the classical massage therapies of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning "the science of life". It is the traditional natural healing system of India, having been practiced there for over 6000 years. It was established by the same enlightened sages who composed the Vedas, India's ancient spiritual texts. Ayurveda describes each person's unique constitution in terms of three basic constitutional qualities or doshas. The aim of Ayurveda through its various modalities is to restore the natural balance of the body and mind by balancing the doshas in proper proportion according to the individual.
"The use of heated medicated herbal oils nourishes the skin
while synchronized massage creates balancing of the body."
One of these modalities is the ancient system of therapeutic massage used at TriHealth Ayurveda Spa. More than just a relaxation therapy, the system acts on many levels to cleanse, heal, restore and balance the entire human being -- bringing peace and vitality to the body, and wholeness to the mind. Through the use of heated medicated herbal oils chosen specifically for your body type, the skin receives nourishment while synchronized massage creates balancing of the body and soothes the mind. For a truly unique experience, try one of our treatments described below:
- Synchronized oil massage with steam bath $150
The hands of two Kerala trained therapists work in a synchronous dance to give you a deep, satisfying massage while anointing you with herbal medicated oil. The strokes of this massage are unique in that they are designed to increase the body's circulation and flow throughout the body. Samvahana also know as Abhyanga stimulates the circulatory, immune and nervous systems. This massage rejuvenates the skin and body tissues, relieves stress, and revives the body and mind. This treatment is followed by a detoxifying steam bath (Sweda) covering you from feet to neck with soothing herbal steam in our traditional Rosewood steamer. Sublime!
Sweda - Detoxifying and soothing steam bath
After an oil massage, relax your mind and body with the herbal steam bath which envelopes you, feet to neck, with soothing herbal steam. It improves peripheral circulation by vasodilatation, which opens the pores in the skin and absorbs the medicinal properties of the herbal oil, eliminates certain impurities through sweat, relieves stiffness, pain and swelling and provides lightness to the body.
Shirodhara - Warm herbal oil continually poured on the forehead - $140
Shirodhara is the Queen of Ayurvedic oil therapies. Following a brief oil massage, a warm herbal oil is continually poured on your forehead and scalp in a rhythmic manner enhancing circulation in the brain (improving memory), bestowing sound sleep and nourishment for the hair and scalp and is one of the best treatments for stress, insomnia and travel fatigue. This treatment is especially effective following our synchronized massage.
- Two therapists continuously bathe the body in warm oil - $195
An Ayurvedic blend of detoxification and total relaxation. Two therapists continuously bathe your entire body with warm, medicated herbal oil inducing swedana (sweating) for the elimination of impurities and absorption of nutrients. Pizichil was the oil therapy of ancient Indian royalty.
- An herbal paste massaged onto the body - $140
Utilizing the Ayurvedic formula triphala, an herbal paste is blended and massaged onto your body by two therapists using synchronized movements. The repeated movements over hair follicles and skin tissue promote the breakdown of fatty deposits. The friction of the powder during the massage creates heat on the body which increases circulation. Benefits range from reducing cholesterol levels, adipose tissue and skin problems as well as imparting mobility to the joints while strengthening and shaping the muscles. It also removes toxins and exfoliates the skin. Very stimulating!
Rasayana, the art and science of physical, mental and emotional Rejuvenation, has been developed by Ayurveda to a level of sophistication and effectiveness known nowhere else. Receiving any of the above Ayurvedic treatments in succession (3, 5, 7, 10 days) is a part of rejuvenation.
