Kundalini is the powerful yet dormant energy at the base of the spine. When awakened, it travels up the spine to the "third eye," bringing increased energy and spiritual enlightenment. Using breathing techniques and gentle stroking and cupping along the body's seven chakras or energy points, this holistic massage relaxes, restores, revitalises and releases the natural energy within.

Indian head massage, or champi, as it is known in India, has been practised for thousands of years. Champi is a common sight in India, from the banks of the Ganges to the most exclusive palaces. Warmed virgin coconut oil is infused with ayurvedic herbs that assist with circulation, nourishment of the hair and scalp, and relief of headaches and other head-related disorders. After hair cleansing, the oil is used to massage the scalp and shoulders, bringing clarity of thought and lustrous-looking hair. We recommend that you leave the oil on your hair for two hours after the treatment for maximum benefit.
A unique massage technique using strong kneading, tapotement and bellabaci cups (Chinese suction cups) on cellulite-affected areas to eliminate stagnation, intensify metabolism and dermal respiration, and improve skin elasticity. ila Body Oil for Vital Energy – containing argan oil, juniper berry, geranium and lemongrass – helps stimulate and release excess fluid.
