The Ancient Art of Ayurveda

Among the many services at the Woodlands Spa, Ayurveda is the most deeply rooted in the ancient arts. Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. The knowledge of Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. This system places great emphasis on prevention and encourages maintaining health by paying close attention to balance in one’s life through right thinking, diet, lifestyle and herbs.

Just as everyone has an individual face or thumb print, according to Ayurveda, each person has a particular pattern of energy – an individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics. At the Woodlands Spa before your therapist performs an Ayurvedic service they have you fill out a constitution card. This constitution card identifies three basic types of energy or functional principles called vata, pitta, and kapha. These principles are within all people and at different times in our lives there is a primary, secondary and least prominent.

Through insight, understanding and experience, Ayurveda presents a vast “database” of the relationship between causes and their affects, both immediate and subtle, for each unique individual. Once you know your most prominent principles your provider will customize a service for you and leave you with a number of recommendations on how to bring more balance into your life.

The Woodlands Spa Ayurvedic experiences include our very own...

Laurel Rebalancer:
After determining your dosha, your therapist will apply a blend of healing and exfoliating herbs and herbal oils to your body. You will then be comfortably cocooned in steamed towels aiding in further absorption – deepening relaxation and purifi cation and promoting a heightened sense of well being.

Highlands Emersion:
The original Bindi Herbal Body Treatment is at the heart of our Ayurvedic Ritual program. This luxurious treatment uses herbal infused oils and a botanical body mask to exfoliate, cleanse, detoxify and nourish, after which the body is immersed in a soothing hydrotherapy bath.

Hot Stone Shirodhara:
The ultimate in bliss! Soothing warm stone massage combined with Ayurvedic oils sets the tone for altered states of tranquility. Special oils are streamed on the “third eye,” causing the mind to become still and peaceful. Healing Energy Work is added to bring the body into balance allowing the mind to float away and the spirit to soar.
