Ayurveda

The ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, the ‘science of life’, goes back 5,000 years and involves how foods, herbs, emotions, climate and lifestyle impact the dynamics of our own physiology and psychology.

Ayurveda treats on a holistic level. Ayurveda goes by the principle that disease is caused by bioenergy imbalances between the three ‘humours’ of ‘Tridoshas’ of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. We rebalance these humours through natural remedies and changes in diet. The three ‘Gunas’ (forces) that form nature and also influence the human body – Satwa, Raja and Tama, represent the three forces of modern physics: nuclear, electro and gravitational force.

Ayurveda has a rich tradition of specialised detoxifying therapies – such as steam therapy, oil massage, and Panchakarma therapy – and special rejuvenation treatments for body and mind which stimulate immunity and slow down degeneration. Ayurveda also offers a variety of herbal and pharmaceutical preparations – decoctions, oils and powders for both internal and external use, ghee, jams and jellies.

Remedies used in Ayurvedic beauty treatments offer much more than just a cosmetic treatment but act in protecting your skin, hair and complexion from the damaging effects of the internal and external environment.
According to Ayurvedic principles, a person’s skin is classified into one of three types: Vata, Pitta or Kapha.
The Vata skin type is characterized by being extremely dry, thin delicate and cool to touch. It is extremely vulnerable to weather conditions, especially dry windy weather conditions and is easily dehydrated. Vata skin may age faster and tends to be dry rough and flaky when out of balance.
People with Pitta skin type have fair sensitive, soft warm skin of medium thickness. It is also more susceptible to freckles and moles. When out of balance, the Pitta skin type will usually erupt with acne breakouts & rashes.
The Kapha skin type is oily, thick, pale, soft, cool & more tolerant of the sun. It tends to age slower and form less wrinkles than the other two types. When this skin type is out of balance it usually leads to problems such as dull complexion, enlarged pores, black heads, pimples, eczema & water retention.

Cleansing Facial

  • For Dry Skin
    Dry, chapped & wrinkled skin is due to Vata imbalance. For these conditions we recommend to do Vata-balancing facial.
  • For Acne prone skin
    Acne, pimples, rashes are due to Pitta imbalance. A Pitta balancing cleansing ayurvedic facial is perfect for these problems.
  • For excessive oilness
    For those who are excessive oil we recommend a Kapha balancing facial.

Rejuvenating Facial

Skin showing signs of stress, fatigue, redness, chapped, premature wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes are due to the imbalance of highly aggravated Vata energy. The skin needs to repair & rejuvenate after the toxins flush with the cleansing. The substances used during this facial for cleansing, massaging & moisturizing greatly enhance rejuvenation of the skin.

The Ayurvedic facial is not your standard facial. Our one-hour-long Ayurvedic facial is a deeply relaxing, soothing and transformational experience
