We provide nourishing and healing body therapies as listed below. Major therapies are provided within the realm of Ayurvedic treatment, which means that we must conduct an assessment of your prakruti (true nature), and vikruti (imbalance). Following an Initial Assessment and Report of Findings (see our Consultation page), we can tailor your therapy to provide the individualized service you need. Minor therapies are provided at any time and do not require an Ayurvedic assessment. Call for pricing.
