Welcome to the Ayurveda Experience at East Town Spa
Ayurveda, in Sanskrit, means the science of life or the art of longevity and vitality. It is one of the oldest and most comprehensive systems of wellness because of its synergistic relationship with nature, the seasons, and the cosmic elements that exist in all living beings. Ayurveda emerged in India over 5000 years ago and is considered the mother of all healing, even influencing Tibetan and Chinese medicinal systems.
This ancient system of healing is based on the 5 elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. The Five Elements explain why substances of the natural world are harmonious with the human body. We easily utilize plants, herbs, minerals, and water, because these substances are the same in composition and character to our own underlying make-up.
Abhyanga (Ahbee-yong-gah): $85 Warm therapeutic herb-infused oil with muscle manipulation which combines gentle, swift and kneading strokes that balance energetic centers in the body andsoothethe nervous system. The effects of this treatment are nourishing, it relieves fatigue; instills the body with stamina, and allows for an enhanced sleep. In addition, it improves complexion and luster of the skin while promoting longevity. Being that Abhyanga is the foundation to multiple Ayurvedic practices, a modified level of this experience is incorporated into Marma, Udwarthana, Swedana and Shirodara services.
