Stand-out menu items include:


A unique massage method that applies generous amounts of warm oil over the body with extra attention to the head, neck and scalp. This technique optimizes the body’s systems, mobilizes joints and enhances tissue suppleness. Experience a sensation of profound relaxation that will stay with you for days.


After an Ayurvedic massage, you are cocooned in our west coast cedar steam cabinet. A deeply aromatic enhanced by herbs customized to your dosha cleanses and detoxifies your system. A herbal powder brushing of entire body stimulates and exfoliates your skin to prevent re-entry of toxins.


‘Shiro’ means head and ‘dhara’ means stream of flow. Shirodarha is a steady stream of warm oil flowing over the crown of the head continuously for 15-20 minutes. It is thought to be a pre-meditative technique to quiet the mind. When the oil nourishes the important nerves of the head, it settles all faculties of the brain and allows breathing to become full and relaxed. All Doshas benefit from the Shirodarha equally. Clients that have headaches, head congestion, difficulty sleeping or insomnia will benefit from this treatment.
