Natural oils are said to have many healing properties that nourish the body and balance mind – as is the case of ashwagandha. In this experience enjoy the best of both worlds – the amazing benefits of having a massage and the wonderful benefits ashwagandha offers.

What is ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs used in Ayurveda, the Indian ancient healing therapy, where it is called the King of Ayurvedic herbs. In recent years ashwagandha’s healing powers have been receiving lots of attention in the West, particularly for its ability to modulate stress and anxiety.

Melt away stresses:

Ayurveda uses ashwagandha for the treating mental conditions like stress, anxiety and depression. In this massage, you will immediately feel your muscles relax and your stresses fade away. Ashwagandha’s unique agents get easily absorbed through the skin. They affect the nervous system, cells and brain receptors - stimulating the release of dopamine in the brain, instructing the body to relax and the mind to calm down.

Ashwagandha also boosts cognitive powers and helps you sleep better. It's recommended to book this treatment at the end of the day when you are ready to fully unwind.

Ease muscle pain:

Ashwagandha can also relieve muscle tension and pain in any part of the body. It can be used for both neuropathic and muscular pain. The herb contains natural anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce the swelling of joints that's common in arthritis patients.

Nourish the skin:

For the treatment, your host will use a carefully prepared blend of pure organic oils (extra virgin coconut and sesame oil) infused with dried ashwagandha root. The result is an extremely nourishing blend that will restore your skin's natural suppleness and elasticity.
