Discover the Wisdom of Ayurveda

Penahki Ayurveda massage & skincare provides therapies originating in India, Ayurveda is one of the oldest, most comprehensive healing systems in the world. Owner Komal Khalsa Mehls says, “Ayurvedic therapies are just one part of a system of natural medicine and healing. They involve the application of warm, herbal-infused oils to rejuvenate and balance your body. The herbal oils are selected according to your dosha (constitution) and are applied with sweeping, flowing strokes. The intention and focus is on working with the energy channels of the body to transport the healing benefits of the herbs to the deeper tissues.”

Abhyanga, a warm herbal oil massage, is designed to bring nourishment to the tissues, deep relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind. It is a full body massage with specific herbal oils to nourish and revitalize the body tissues and remove toxins from the cells.

Shirodhara, or oil flow on the forehead, is considered a therapeutic and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatment for stabilizing the state of mind and body and bringing clients into harmony on a physical, mental and emotional level.
