We are excited to announce that the Beach Plum Spa will now be offering Ayurvedic treatments featuring Shankara products, an unsurpassed Ayurvedic line. Shirodhara is an element of Ayurvedic medicine that has been used for over 5,000 years in India, and has only recently been “discovered” by Western massage therapists. It involves a gentle stream of oils and other liquids being poured over the “third eye” area of the forehead. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shira, meaning ‘head’ and dhara, meaning ‘flow’ which together bring physical and emotional balance by rejuvenating the spirit and preserving health.
The 20-minute treatment induces a deep state of relaxation, soothes the nervous system, stimulates the endocrine system, and awakens the third eye while providing deep nourishing moisture to the skin and hair.
Combine shirodhara with the 5 Point Star treatment to bring the focus of healing to the scalp, hands, and feet. This treatment is ideal for anyone who works on a computer all day, or who spends most of the day on their feet. This focused treatment brings nourishment and replenishment through the use of herbal salts, medicated oils, and balancing bowls to bring ojas (life sap) to our Being as we move along our life path.
What You Can Expect
During the 5 Point Star treatment you remain fully clothed while experiencing a scrub followed by a mask from hand to elbow; an Indian foot massage specific to your needs; then finish with a slow pour of warmed oil on your forehead and a scalp massage. After my own first 5 Point Star treatment, I felt completely relaxed and had the best night of sleep I’ve had in years! I woke up feeling so refreshed and energized, it’s amazing! And the oil made my hair look so much more healthy and shiny the next day – it actually looked younger.
We’re so proud to bring Shankara products to Beach Plum Spa – it’s truly more than a wonderful skin care line! Behind everything they do is a strong intent to serve humanity, from producing the finest, most energetic products possible to the donation of 100% of the net profits to global humanitarian work. Seventeen of our therapists just completed intense training with Shankara to ensure delivery of the best possible treatments to our guests. We can’t wait to share this new service with you!
