Shirodhara

A profoundly relaxing treatment. 

Experience a focused, continuous stream of warm herbal oil on the forehead above the pineal gland.  This deeply soothes the nervous system.  Worry lines soften and the herb infused oil nourishes the face, scalp and hair.

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.

Shirodhara relieves mental exhaustion and is useful for headaches, TMJ, Parkinson's, and insomnia. After a session, clients feel more tranquil and usually report a deep, relaxing sleep that night.

$70 for 45 minutes

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.
