Last month, I told you all about Burke Williams Day Spa’s exciting new Ayurvedic Treatments and shared my experience trying out their incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating Shirodhara Ayurvedic Treatment. In my follow-up post this month, I want to tell you about the other fabulous new Ayurvedic treatment that BW recently introduced which my fabulous friend Melanie had the pleasure of enjoying in celebration of her recent 50th Birthday.
Ananda is a traditional Ayurvedic practice that focuses on the five energy channels of the head, feet, and hands. Burke Williams Ananda Ayurvedic Treatment ($215) uses this ritual to create a relaxing and healing combination of polishing, moisturizing, and massage to put your mind and body back in balance. During this treatment, Ayurvedic herbs are applied to the five energy points of the body and then you get a nourishing, rhythmic, flowing massage with heated therapeutic oils. A special emphasis is placed on these vital energy points in order to move electromagnetic energy through the body and put you into a state of bliss. This treatment ends with a wonderfully grounding traditional Ayurvedic Balancing Bowl ritual on your feet which is designed to balance your doshas and remove excess heat and energy from the body.
After her Ananda treatment, I got the 411 from Melanie and she said that she felt incredibly relaxed and calm after her treatment and that it was a deeper feeling of relaxation than you typically get from a spa treatment. She loved the hypnotic smell of the aromatic healing Ayurvedic oils that were used during her treatment but her favorite part was the balancing bowls that were used at the end. She found them very grounding and healing.
After we both finished our treatments, Melanie and I enjoyed a wonderful post treatment respite in celebration of her birthday!
Did you know that BW offers thoughtful little perks if you visit while celebrating a special occasion? Just let them know upon check-in and they will usually offer some sparkling apple juice and fruit drizzled with chocolate as a lovely little treat as well as a signature healing soak in a private bathtub. Who knew?!
Disclosure: Burke Williams invited me and my guest to the spa to experience their new Ayurvedic Treatments, but all opinions are my own.
