In addition to a deep state of relaxation and overall sense of well-being, the benefit of regular massage is to bring healing through the physical manipulation of muscle and joint tissue as well as the release of toxins. Further, regular massage can help relieve stress and anxiety as well as reduce heart rate and blood pressure. The Sanctuary offers Swedish, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, Cranial-Sacral, Trigger-Point and Prenatal & Postnatal, Thai and Hot Stone massages.  

The Sanctuary is also home to a complete Panchakarma clinic offering Marma therapy, Nasya, Shirodhara, Svedana (steam), one and two person lymphatic massage and Ayurvedic de-toxification treatments.

We also offer other healing therapies such as Reiki, EFT and Chakra balancing.

Ayurvedic Therapies

Inherent in our human experience is the natural fluctuation of our minds, bodies and emotions. 
Symptoms such as overwhelm, insomnia, anxiety, worry, anger, tension and restlessness are all signs that the body and mind could greatly benefit from Ayurvedic Body Therapies. These ancient techniques deeply rejuvenate the body, alleviating the stresses of daily life, as well as accumulated trauma and imbalances in the system. As the body and mind have their own innate healing intelligence, the state of deep relaxation supported by these therapies allow for that healing to take place on a profound level transforming the Body, Mind and Spirit.... 

"The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries, or strenuous work. By using oil massage, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age. "
Charaka Samhita Vol. 1, V: 88-8

PanchaKarma Treatments

PanchaKarma  is a deeply relaxing  way to cleanse the body of accumulated toxins, release the negative effects of stress  and provides  rejuvenation to body, mind, and spirit. Your PanchaKarma cleanse is tailored specifically for you depending on your time and need for specific treatments. All herbal formulas, bastis, teas and foods are also specifically designed in this treatment. 

The PanchaKarma cleanse takes from  9 to 15 days depending on how much time you can take off from your regular activities. The preparation for the cleanse starts 3 days before treatments with a specialized diet plan specifically geared to your individual needs. Treatments then begin for a period of 3 to 5 days during which you are likely to spend 2 –  3 hours at the Sanctuary for 4 body therapies each day.  After each therapy, you are sent home to spend the rest of the day doing relaxing, non-stressful activities and resting as much as possible. Once the clease is over, the following 3 days are spent  in slowly reintegrating regular foods in your diet with herbs to increase your digestive fire. 

Please call to discuss whether a PanchKarma would be a suitable option for you and to address any questions on costs and treatments.

Chakra Balancing

There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as Chakras. Each Chakra is located throughout our body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunction; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area.

The clearing of the energy can also balance our emotional state of mind. If you have achiness or stiffness, or certain reoccurring emotions and fears, you may want to consult with one of our healers to find out more about how they can help balance your Chakras!
