Based on the Ayurvedic principle of chakras or energy meridians in our body, the Soul Essence rituals aim to balance these chakras to promote a deeper sense of connection and well-being.
EARTH ESSENCE (MULADHARA)
Balancing the earth’s energy within us calms the body and mind, creating a profound inner peace that helps free our full potential. Combining a foot wash, singing bowls and a slow deep massage with grounding vetiver, ginger, patchouli and jatamansi oils, this treatment induces a deep sense of stillness that will leave you feeling ready to take on the world.
WATER ESSENCE (SWADHISTHANA)
The water element within us is located in the lower abdomen. It governs fertility, sexual virility, self-worth and creativity. It is also associated with emotional balance, desire and pleasure. This center helps us to let go and find a healthy balance in life. When it is functioning well, this space brings enhanced emotional gratification, higher self-esteem and free flowing creative energy. This nurturing treatment combines a deep lymphatic scrub, flowing massage and chakra warming with the nourishing oils of jasmine, patchouli, rose and sandalwood. Happiness is renewed and the desire for life and love is reinvigorated.
FIRE ESSENCE (MANIPURA)
The fire centre is located in the solar plexus. It is the centre for health and vitality and governs the capacity to grow and develop. Connected to inner strength, sense of purpose and confidence, when it is open and balanced, we shine from within. This elevating treatment floods the body with vital energy and inner warmth. An energising and detoxifying foot and body scrub, bio energy mud wrap and massage with vital energy oil are sure to restore inner radiance and positive feelings, renew strength and health and leave the skin brilliantly lustrous.
AIR ESSENCE (ANAHATA)
The element of air is associated with the heart chakra and is located in the chest. It is the center of peace and it governs love, forgiveness, generosity and well-being. Balancing this chakra is important for the circulatory system, heart and thymus. It also helps fend off disease and nurture spiritual love and devotion. Healing the heart chakra can help free us from our limits and fears. This tender combination of foot wash, scrub, massage and heart work uses rose oil and warmed rose quartz to gently reconnect the body and mind to inner peace and stillness. Equilibrium is restored, leaving you feeling at one with yourself and those around you.
SPACE ESSENCE (VISHUDDHA)
The element of space is found within the throat chakra and located in the centre of the throat. It governs our communication and self-expression and is linked to creativity and honesty. It also encourages strong leadership. A strong throat chakra embodies the spirit of truth and intuition. When it is weak or low in energy, our thoughts become unstable and our sleep patterns are disturbed. This treatment uses healing sounds and a highly specialised marma facial massage to balance the space element within us. It enables us to acknowledge and express truth in and around us, reconnects the mind to a positive flow and encourages a deep and restful sleep.
SOUL ESSENCE (AJNA)
The third-eye chakra is located in the centre of the forehead and holds the essence of light. Responsible for spiritual insight, it also deals with the perception, intuition, imagination, concentration and peace of mind. This is linked to the pituitary gland – when balanced, it has harmonising effects on our emotional behavior. This treatment uses breathing techniques, a crystal amethyst wrap of essential oils of sandalwood, jasmine, specialised marma and a light technique massage to balance the higher and lower selves. The mind feels light, clear and knowing and a sense of peace and harmony pervades the whole body.
CONSCIOUSNESS ESSENCE (SAHASRARA)
Located at the top of the head, this is the energy centre that connects us to universal awareness. Symbolized by a lotus with 1,000 petals, it is the centre of pure consciousness, inner wisdom and our connection to the cosmic universe. This enlightening and unifying treatment rejuvenates the nervous system through a sequence of foot, back, head and toe massages that channel energy from the heart of the earth to the higher self. With sea buckthorn to regenerate life force and orange blossom and jasmine to attract cosmic light, this gentle yet powerful treatment leads to a state of blissful understanding.
