Have you ever been to an Ayurvedic spa? It's just incredible. While all these spas are different they share many things in common. These spas are known for their personalized treatment that helps you to feel better but also help cure your ills.
Ayurvedic practices make use of the dosha-based therapies. A consultation will determine what your dosha is as well as what type of oil should be used for your message for example, sesame oil. All of us are supposed to have three guiding energies know as Vata, Pitta or Kapha. However, there is one that is dominate for each of us. The idea behind this practice is to put the doshas into balance by using foods, herbs and various beauty products.
Some spas will greet you with cleansing foods when you walk in such as mung beans and roasted veggies before they begin working on you.
Sometimes they will have you wear crystals as a part of their therapy known as Panchakarma (PK). Some visits run 4 to 5 hours while others can go for 3 to 8 days.
These longer programs are meant to work with serious physical and mental ailments.
Ayurvedic therapies have been known to help individuals wean off medications and get back to their normal routines.
They often have an individual ask a series of questions while taking your pulse. Your pulse apparently reveals a lot about you such as metallic poisoning and adrenal fatigue. They ask you about your dosha evaluation and discuss your particular case. For example, you might be Vata. Vata goes toward high energy and creativity that is to say when it is in balance, however when it is out of balance it goes to frustration and anxiety. This often shows up as digestion problems of which your attendant will suggest specific supplement for you to take. They also do an iodized foot soak which is supposed to relieve toxic metal poisoning.
Another type of therapy is known as Kizhi which comprises hot pouches that are full of herbs. This is supposed to detox and stimulate your circulation. The Shirodara (third-eye treatment) is sometimes done. They literally drizzle warm oil on your forehead for 30 minutes which relaxes you and makes you feel sleepy. Another therapy is called the seven-chakra awakening. This procedure involves a large container full of 7 crystals (one for each chakra) placed on top of you. The crystals are glowing. Wow!!!! With the crystal all a glow, you listen to a meditation chant that requests you to “call on angels and thank the source” for your healing. This is very good for chronic stress. There is no doubt that this is a wonderful way
