  • Mukha Abhyangam is an ancient application of Ayurvedic tri- doshic oil. Used to encourage circulation, the spiritually uplifting Aditi oil is gently massaged into the face, head a neck area by a trained Ayurvedic technician, followed by Mukha Lepam.  This specially prepared and herbal medicated facialpurification is used for reducing discoloration and smoothing the skin resulting in a dramatic improvement of its complexion.  A scalp massage or traditional balancing foot bowl is included.
  • Marma points are Pressure points located on and in the body.
  • The skin molecules arise from the same molecules, as does the brain. Neuro-ectoderm.
  • The process of healing happens through the five senses (also known as subtle elements) with sounds, colors, smells, touch and taste.     
  • There is a whole pharmacy that can be accessed through the skin when it is stimulated. Learn how to use these applications for yourself and as part of your professional services.
  • There are 108 Marma points on the body.  Marma points are junction points between physiology and matter and the energetic body.  Marma points are direct doorways to Nadi’s, the channels in our body.
  • Acupressure facial
  • Acupressure is an alternative medicinal treatment. Pressure is applied to the different “meridians” in the body to alleviate specific ailments. It's thought that by putting pressure on specific points within the body’s meridians, health will be restored. An acupressure massage uses these specified points, applying pressure to the areas while rubbing in circular motions. Don’t get acupressure confused with acupuncture; while they have the same philosophies and use the same pressure points, acupressure does not use needles as acupuncture does.
  • There are four ways you can apply pressure to this facial massage: with your thumb, with your index finger, with your knuckle, or with a blunt, smooth object. Use medium pressure in clockwise motions on each point. Start with the left side and then the right. Stimulate each point for about ten seconds then move to the next adjacent location (i.e., point one and then point two).
  • Each area of the face has specific points to stimulate. For this facial massage, there are 29 points across the face and neck. For the full facelift acupressure massage, start with point number one and move through location 29.
  • There are natural, facial massage techniques that you can do to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. By giving yourself an acupressure massage, you can fend off unwanted wrinkles and tone sagging facial muscles. -natural organic skincare
  • Ayurvedic balancing bowl foot treatment
  • Applying oil and massaging the feet with a foot balancing bowl is very beneficial to effecting all of the governing vessels in the body via reflexology points, marma points and ultimately the Nadis, similar to Meridians of energy in the entire body.
  • This is a fully packed day of fun, learning and beauty, wear comfortable natural fiber clothing, head band, hair ties and your massage table.

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara
