Miiamo Ayurvedic Treatments
Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation 60/90 Minutes
We highly recommend starting your Ayurvedic experience with this powerful and insightful consultation that provides an in-depth look at your particular dosha type. Our expert consultant will discuss lifestyle changes and additions that will support your well-being in all areas affecting physical, mental and emotional balance.
Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment 90 Minutes
The skin will be dry brushed to increase circulation and begin the exfoliation process. A blend of Indian herbs, which detoxifies and nourishes the skin, will be applied and rinsed off. This is followed by a massage with a dosha specific oil. You will then be wrapped with steaming herbal sheets while a head and neck massage is given. Your treatment will culminate by being escorted to a lounge chair for a cup of balancing tea and some time to meditate on the perfection of your life.
Shirodhara 60/90 Minutes
This treatment begins with a clarifying Ayurvedic facial. Your skin will be cleansed, a masque will then be applied that is most suitable for your skin type, and your face will be toned. The Shirodhara portion of the treatment begins with a slow pouring of warm oil onto the forehead. This stimulates the pituitary gland, helps balance the endocrine system, and relaxes the nervous system. You will then receive a very gentle scalp massage, and excess oil will be squeezed out of the hair. According to Ayurveda it is advisable to leave the oil in the hair and scalp overnight to balance the Vata Dosha.
Dosha Balancing Wrap 60/90 Minutes
The top layer of the skin cells will be lightly brushed to allow the oils to deeply penetrate. You will then be massaged utilizing the exotic, aromatic oils of India. These oils are chosen to balance your specific dosha of Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. Finally you will be cocooned, in an herbal infused sheet and receive a head, neck and scalp massage.
Abhyanga 60 Minutes
Abhyanga is a traditional Ayurvedic full body massage using two therapists who will work in synchrony. The Abhyanga is a “light touch,” rather than a deep tissue massage that gently encourages cellular toxins to be moved from the cells into the bloodstream so that the body may effectively eliminate them. The end result of Abhyanga is a deeply relaxed physiology and enhanced feeling of well-being. For the ultimate experience add on the 30-minute Shirodhara as described below.
Abhyanga and Shirodhara 90
Immediately following your 60 minute Abhyanga, one of your therapists continues with a slow pouring of warm oil onto the forehead using a specific pattern for approximately 15-20 minutes. Then you will receive a very “gentle” scalp massage so as not to stimulate the Vata dosha but massage the oils into the hair and scalp. The excess oil is then squeezed out of the hair and it is advisable to keep the remaining oil in the hair overnight to continue “Vata pacification”.
Ayurvedic Facial 60/90 Minutes
Ayurvedic Facial therapy features ancient massage techniques which bring forth a glowing luster to the skin while promoting deep relaxation for the body, mind and spirit. We will begin this ritual with an aromatic experience where you will choose the perfect blend of oils to complement and bring balance to your specific dosha. Your face will be gentle cleansed and a customized mask applied that is perfect for your skin. You will receive an East Indian massage of the face and scalp as well as a hand and arm massage with warm oils. To complete your ritual, hydrating and nourishing facial serums will be massaged into the skin leaving you with a sense of well being and natural beauty. The 90-minute session includes a warm oil foot massage.
Vedic Meditation 60/90 Minutes
This meditation is based on traditional Ayurvedic practices. Vedic Meditation has the ability to deeply relax and heal the physiology while calming the mind. This allows stress to be released, creating a profound pathway of approaching life more balanced and joyful. We highly recommend the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation in conjunction with this meditation. The 90 minute session can explore this form of meditation more in depth or it may begin with the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation principles.
Vedic Spirit 60/90 Minutes
Ayurveda promotes balance to achieve lasting health, vitality and connection. When our emotional or spiritual essence is off, deep balance is often difficult to attain. In this session, we will assess your particular dosha and then introduce ancient Ayurvedic techniques to encourage profound well being on an emotional and spiritual level.
Ayurvedic Yoga 60 Minutes
This specialized yoga brings the mind and body back into balance. You will learn yoga poses, breathing techniques and meditation exercises to harmonize your dominant dosha. We recommend an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation to deepen your awareness of your particular dosha.
