Craniosacral therapy is a gently form of bodywork that utilizes the fluids surrounding the brain and central nervous system. The therapist uses the gently sustained contact in a very precise manner to redistribute fluid within the body and resolve imbalances in physical structure and function. Cranial work is one of the most highly refined approaches to bodywork and may be effective in situations where no other type of medical or natural intervention has helped.

Experience the bliss of a full–body Ayurvedic Massage using warm herbalized oils chosen to balance and rejuvenate your unique constitution.

Vishesh is a rhythmic, vigorous treatment using herbalized oils specific to your current imbalances. This treatment breaks up adhesions, stimulates lymphatic flow, and guides impurities out of the body. Warm towel compresses help the body absorb the oils.
This is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment, featuring a dry lymphatic skin brushing with a silk glove, followed by an individualized herbal oil treatment. The brushing (garshana) increases circulation, and cleans the skin so that the herbal oil treatment can penetrate deeply.
This can be added onto the Abhyanga for $10
