It’s been busy in HadleyHolisticLand. I’ve been leading workshops, developing and presenting teleclasses, and, of course, seeing all my clients. It’s been so great… but also kind of exhausting. To rejuvenate myself for the summer, I decided to treat myself to a spa day at Pratima, an Ayurvedic spa in SoHo. I chose the shirodhara treatment, which I have heard about before but never tried. It involves a massage and then they pour a steady stream of warm oil over your third eye. When I looked it up on the internet, I was promised such benefits as “feeling extraordinary bliss”, reduced stress, and mental relaxation — sounds good to me!
It was my second time at Pratima and I found it just as calming and Zen-like as I remembered. My stress melted away the minute I entered the treatment room. The shirodhara itself was AMAZING. All of my ‘to do’ chatter melted away and I just relaxed into it. When I left, I was totally blissed out — not a care in the world. It was a great place to be.
I highly, highly recommend this to anyone in need of deep relaxation. I cannot overstate how awesome I felt afterwards. While you’re at Pratima, also check out their skin care line, which is all natural and super unprocessed. Then your skin will match your post-treatment mental state!
