29 Jun “WHAT’D YOU SAY ABOUT MY MARMA?”
We need to talk about your feet. Yes, those poor ol’ trusties buried under two (okay, three) pairs of wool socks and galvanized rubber snow boots. The truth is, winter and early spring are a sad time for your faithful pals. Virtually ignored for an entire season, hidden from your friends and loved ones, and still. All they do is love you, faithfully and eternally. (It’s no wonder some call them “dogs,” although frankly, that’s a little sad.) Fortunately, Fabriq Spa is giving you the chance to return the favor.
Enter: Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology, or as anyone who has ever experienced our 30-minute treatment may call it, “Please Enjoy the Music While Your Prana Is Reached.” Not only is Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology incredibly relaxing for your soul and soles, your whole body benefits from the treatment’s attention to specific, reflexive Marma points.
For a succinct breakdown of Ayurvedic principles, we now turn to Fabriq Spa’s resident Ayurvedic guru, Ana Figueiredo, LMT.
First things first: Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology is based around the main tenets of Ayurveda, India’s traditional comprehensive medical system. Ana explains this, quite simply, as the practice of balancing the body’s subtle energies by supporting the efficient flow of Prana (translation: the body’s vital energy). Prana travels along “micro energy” channels throughout the body, known as Nadis. Your feet are chock full of Nadis and Marma points. When these points are addressed, one’s bodily systems are able to function most efficiently. The treatment is used to boost immunity and physical awareness, and in the reduction of stress, tension and toxicity. Ayurvedic Foot Reflexology is also used in the treatment of such maladies as: migraines, menstrual irregularities, neck and back pain, constipation and diarrhea, menopausal symptoms and sciatica.
Fabriq Spa’s Ayurvedic Foot Treatment includes a Kansa Vatki bowl massage, made of three different metals:
Copper – believed to help with pain reduction, inflammation and arthritis
Zinc – aids digestion and immune systems
Tin – aids in digestion and relief from headaches and insomnia
While the treatment is to the ultimate benefit of your entire body and its many systems, instant gratification includes:
– revitalization of tired legs and feet
– improved circulation and joint mobility
– reduction of stress and anxiety
– better sleep and clarity of mind
All of this, and we haven’t even told you the best part. Ayurvedic Foot Treatments can be added onto another massage service for $45, or $50 as a standalone treatment.
