PANCHAKARMA , AYURVEDIC DEEP DETOXIFICATION – (UNDER DR. ARYA KRISHNA SUPERVISION).

Panchakarma is the most effective healing modality in Ayurveda, which promotes deep Detoxification and Rejuvenation

It strengthens the immune system and restores balance and well-being of the person. 

It is done for healthy people in order to maintain the healthy status and for people with health conditions in order to uproot the disease. 

Modern life stress, environmental pollutants and poor lifestyle choices create a toxic load on our bodies that— if left in the tissues (dhatus), doshas, and bloodstream over the period of time — create health issues. 

The goal of Panchakarma is to remove deep rooted stress and illness causing toxins from the body, while balancing all three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) – energies that governs our bodies and all biological functions. 

Panchakarma reverses this degenerative process and its effects are often long-lasting and profound.

ASIAN BODY WORK

Tui Na  

Has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2000 years. It consists of rhythmic massage along the energy meridians of the body, acupressure, some stretches, and manipulation of the joints. Similar to other types of Asian Bodywork therapy Tui Na has been used as prophylactic for a range of diseases by maintaining a balance in our life energy. 

 

Thai Bodywork
Ttechniques are applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, as well as legs, feet, and knees. Aside from focusing on the active energy points, there are many stretching techniques involved in Thai massage. Thai Bodywork is often referred to as “Yoga for the lazy.”  This is because the stretching techniques awaken the muscles that tend to be dormant in everyday living. There is also a unique style of Thai massage called Table Thai. It takes place on a table top and allows for a more effective use of the various Thai Bodywork techniques. Thai is also has very strong therapeutic power.

Acupuncture
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine our body has more than 50 energy channels.14 of them have acupuncture points. 12 Primary channels belong to 12 major organs and logically and physically connected to each other’s. There is also strong physical and emotional relationship between our organs. By stimulating or sedating different points using acupuncture needles we are affecting not only certain organ but also its "relatives" and bringing Yin-Yang balance of our body in order. There is no disorder in a world which cannot be treated by acupuncture.

Fee for any 30 min session is $50.00

Package of two 30 min sessions (60 minutes) is $90.00

Package of all three 30 minutes sessions (90 minutes) is $125.00

-----------------------------------------------------

Visceral Therapy (massage of internal organs)

The abdominal is like the second brain. I've heard this repeated from absolutely different representatives of Alternative Medicine. There is an Abdominal Kingdom in our body, with its own hierarchy. There is very specific relationship between our internal organs, physical as well as emotional. One dysfunctional organ can impair the work of its relative organs. Muscle tension, blood, lymph or energy channels stagnation, or vessels stretching might be reasons of discomfort, pain, or a more serious pathology. Visceral therapy can help ease much chronic pathology. Furthermore, other therapies like acupuncture, body massage, cups, and dietary supplements work better after your abdominal has been put in order.

 

Fee for 30 min Visceral Therapy is $60.00

Packages (combinations of few different treatments) are also available.

For information or appointments please call House of Ayurveda, 1.224.723.5797

------------------------------------------

CUPPING MASSAGE THERAPY 

Many of us are familiar with the old-fashioned glass massage cups, lately with plastic and rubber ones that are very powerful tools in treating chronic pain due to stagnant blood by improving circulation.

In this technique, the cups behave as a Gua Sha (a small plate or spoon to scrape the body in order to open the skin’s pores to relieve stagnant blood and reduce inflammation and pain). Besides scraping, cups create vacuum pressure, thereby facilitating the release of toxins from the body.

Cup massage is usually applied to the back – the largest body surface – but in some cases, it can be used on smaller local areas for problems with hips or shoulders.

Usually, bruise-like marks from cupping may last from 3 to 5 days. During this time, we recommend that you keep the treated area covered with a cloth to protect the skin areas from the open air to protect from possible infection or inflammation.

As a result of cupping, people often feel internal relief, an energy boost, pain reduction, and an improved range of motion. The simple logical information is this: the toxic blood that is directly connected to the pain is not dispersed throughout the body (as with classic massage) but instead exits the body directly through the open pores.

Fee for Cupping Massage Therapy is $30.00, in addition to any Asian Body work packages - $25.00

 DETOX STEAM THERAPY – SWEDANA!



More and more we become increasingly aware of the wide variety of toxins that may be in our bodies, including herbicides, pesticides, food additives, air pollution, and household chemicals. When ingested, these chemicals can remain in the body for years, altering our metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, creating hormonal imbalances and lowering our threshold of resistance to chronic disease. Today, studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins.

House of Ayurveda detox steam therapy provides the ultimate detoxification.

 

Our Regular Steam Detox treatments can be offered as a standalone modality or combined with other healing therapies such as Panchakarma or massage, to provide a practical and enjoyable way to help clients remove these toxins from their bodies. Benefits of detoxification include weight loss, pain relief, increased alertness and energy, lustrous skin and eyes and enhanced immunity.

We use our Steam Detox Steam therapy in conjunction with detoxifying essential oils blends, that stimulate the lymphatic system, circulation and movement of body fluids, assists in breaking down cellulite or fat deposits that can be flushed out of the system, promotes detoxification by assisting in purging and cleansing the body of impurities.

Within minutes of turning on the steam generator, you will experience the warmth of a steam room without breathing in hot air.
