Project Description

—Nourishing Tissue Massage—

  • Are you deeply worn out?
  • Do *all* of your joints ache?
  • Are you unusually sensitive or emotional?
  • Do you feel like you are ready to break apart into a million pieces?
  • Is your resilience at an all-time low?

Let us infuse you with the strength of Superman.

Traditionally called Pinda Swedana, this treatment reduces pain, fatigue, and anxiety. Isn’t that what everyone needs these days? You will leave the session feeling strengthened, refreshed, and ready to take on the world (or, at least, your pile of laundry).

Pinda Sweda is a very traditional treatment in which rice is cooked with nourishing herbs and milk till it is all a soft mush. This is then scooped into mounds and wrapped up in cotton cloth to make boluses. The boluses are then steeped in warm oil until you are ready for their deep healing powers when they are used to massage your body in a soothing, gentle manner.

You could eat the boluses… but let your skin drink in all of their yummy goodness on your behalf.
