Enrich your Joshua Tree desert experience with a rejuvenating session at our wellness center


Shirodhara

Experience a deeply soothing treatment for the entire nervous system as warm herbal oil gently massages the forehead. Leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

I was so pleased to discover Anahita on a road trip through Joshua Tree. She has a lovely caring approach and her Shirodhara was excellent and very relaxing. I recommend her highly.

I have fond memories of the warm oil on my forehead, as if it was a dreamy dream.

Marma

Marma sessions bring immediate relaxation and tranquility. Marmas are vital energy points on the surface of the body, located at anatomical sites above the organs, and where veins, arteries, tendons, bones or joints intersect.

Sequences targeting specific imbalances are used to soothe and pacify the body and mind.

Heart Basti

Soothe and transform your emotional and physical heart center via a gentle basti treatment. The heart regulates the blood and vessels, houses the mind/spirit consciousness, holds memories, and regulates sleep.

Warm herbal oil is contained within a coil of dough to deeply nurture the tissues surrounding the heart. Uniquely relaxing…perhaps like being in the womb. Preceded by a marma sequence awakening the vital energy points relating to the heart.

Anahita King is one of those rare people who is creative and intuitive with everything she does. Recently I was fortunate to be treated by her after I dislocated my hip. Her Ayurveda treatments helped my healing enormously. I highly recommend her. Eva S
