Ayurvedic Body Treatments

The traditional Ayurvedic therapies offered are known as 'basti.' In these treatments, warm herbal oil is held in place surrounding the affected area for a particular amount of time, using a ‘well’ made of organic dough. The warm oil, which stimulates blood flow is absorbed through the skin thus providing healing and rejuvenation benefits.
