Samsara Ayurvedic Rituals
* SHIRODHARA BODY GLOW
Drawing on the benefits of natural sea salt, this skin- reviving treatment uses exfoliation to remove sluggish skin cells and improve circulation. While you are enveloped in a comforting body wrap, warm sensual oil is drizzled over your whole body. Then a stream of warm calming essential oil is directed onto the third eye (see Shirodhara below), followed by a Marma point massage of the feet. This luxurious treatment will leave you refreshed, stimulated and energized.
* SHIROBHYANGA MASSAGE
This Ayurvedic therapy focuses on releasing tension through the Marma points on the back, hands and feet. Beginning with Shirodhara, a warm stream of oil soothes the third eye, calms the mind and enhances awareness. Warm oil is then slowly drizzled on your hands, forearms, feet and back and each area is treated to an invigorating massage, releasing blocked energy, stress and tension through the Marma points.
Shiro means “head” and dhara means “pouring of oil”. The result is an enchanting experience. This treatment is guaranteed to relieve the stresses of daily life and restore your vital energies. Calming essential oils are directed to your third eye to induce an alpha state of deep relaxation. The treatment is integrated with an intense Oriental scalp massage that concentrates on the meridians and crown chakra, bringing harmony and well- being to the entire body.

|Hair, hands and feet
* INDIAN SCALP MASSAGE WITH FRANGIPANI MONOI OIL
Adapted from an ancient Polynesian recipe, Frangipani Monoi is created by combining Copra Coconut Oil with the perfumed petals of the Frangipani flower. After a time, the petals completely yield their essence to the oil, creating an emulsion called Monoi. Used by Polynesian women to keep their skin firm and glowing, hair lustrous and nails strong,we believe you too will see an immediate difference in the texture of your hair.Combined with an Indian scalp massage, this
ritual is recommended before your blow-dry.
