Snehana is deeply relaxing and enjoyable, as stress and toxins are released at all levels – physical, emotional and mental. Snehana literally means to “nurture, to love, to heal, to express kindness and compassion” – and this is exactly what you will experience during this treatment. As a one-off application, Snehana acts as an instant stress-buster. As a series of treatments, the cleansing and nourishing effect is increased manifold. Snehana can be carried out by a single therapist or as a synchronous massage by two therapists.

Oil Irrigation on Cakra Area This process provides subtle nutrition to the Cakra, helps to improve the function of the Cakra and alleviates the diseased or stressed organ associated with the Cakra. It is followed by a gentle massage of the energy points. The Cakras are the energy fields in the subtle body and govern the subtle elements, sense organs, and organs of action. Physical diseases relate to imbalances in the Cakras which function through the various nerve plexus and endocrine organs. Psychological diseases involve imbalances in inner Cakra functioning. Cakra Basti is given only after consultation with the Ayurvedic doctor or chief therapist. It involves the shaping of flour dough into a ring and placing it around the desired Cakra area and warm medicated oil is gradually poured inside. Then the subtle vibrations are given around the body with the help of singing bowls. There are five places for the application of Cakra Basti. Muladhar Cakra (Root or Coccygeal Centre) Svadhisthana (Pubic Centre) Manipur Cakra (Naval or Solar plexus Centre) Anahata Cakra (Heart Centre) Vishuddha Cakra (Throat Centre)

Pizhichil/ Whole Body Oil Bath This bath gives the feeling of completeness and totality. The culture of oil baths is very ancient in Ayurveda and is highly regarded in the classics. In this process, a silent and calm environment is created with a relaxation massage being given first. A group of therapists then enter the room, maintaining silence, and bringing collective peace and meditative energy with them. Two therapists, working with the same rhythm and healing energy, pour a stream of warm Ayurveda oil from the feet to the neck and vice versa along with massage. The soft, smooth, slippery, and gentle touch with oil and the therapist’s love continues for one hour. It gives a feeling like being in a mother’s womb – smooth, soft, and free deep inside. The prime healing energy is gently nurtured and stimulated through the treatment, resulting in a feeling of wholeness, self-love, and happiness.
