Abhyanga

Ayurvedic Massage Treatment

Abhyanga is a full body massage performed with warm medicated oil. This traditional treatment uses choreographed strokes, either 2 or 4 handed, to bring nourishment to the tissues, deep relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind.

Shirodhara

Warm Oil Treatment

Shirodhara is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind. Warm, medicated oil is poured in a consistent stream over the forehead, resting over the third eye.

Svedana

Herbal Steam Treatment

Svedana is an herbal steam treatment to support the process of detoxification.

Student Testimonials

Kathryn's warm and welcoming demeanor immediately created a comfortable learning environment. Her grounded approach and wealth of wisdom made every session enriching and insightful. Kathryn remained accessible for follow-up questions, providing valuable insights as I embarked on incorporating Ayurvedic body treatments into my private practice. This level of ongoing mentorship is truly commendable and showcases Kathryn's commitment to her students' success beyond the classroom. I feel equipped with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to offer Abhyanga, Shirodhara, and Svedana confidently. I highly recommend Kathryn and The School of Ayurveda.

Heidi Grace, Nature Yoga

Kathryn’s deep compassion, innate knowing, and skill as an Ayurvedic Practitioner is unmatched. In just one session, she unlocked years of ancestral trauma that I was holding in my energy body and facilitated a cathartic release that I would not have otherwise been able to process on my own. She intuitively knew what I needed at an emotional level and applied the necessary techniques to accelerate the emotional and physical healing process. Through her guidance, I’ve mended important relationships, I feel more vibrant, and my energy levels have soared. As a two-time cancer patient, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of having a skilled practitioner such as Kathryn as the foundation for your overall health and wellness

Jennifer Zolper-Peck, MBA

Comfort, connection, and care are the top words that come to mind when I reflect on the body treatments I have received. The body body treatments; abhyanga, shirodhara, and svedana brought in so much comfort and inner peace. You feel at ease and are able to relax and let go and simply be present. Kathryn’s training space is like heaven on earth. Located on acres of pure beauty. Releasing the body of toxins and sweating out the bad was truly Divine. Kathryn has a beautiful way of explaining each step and making me feel understood and connected with her and with myself. After my appointments, she always checks in with me and makes sure I am looked after. Kathryn is knowledgeable and so helpful in becoming more in tune with your body and it is a true self-care experience.
