AYURVEDA is the 5000-year old science of health and longevity that forms the core of traditional Indian and Tibetan medicine. And the lifestyle, healing modalities, and its many bodywork treatments of Ayurveda make it today's most sought after form of traditional medicine for people looking to reduce stress, heal, and experience rejuvenation. Ayurveda is also the most successful holistic health paradigm in the spa and beauty industries. Massage therapists, aestheticians, personal trainers, and wellness counselors working privately, in clinics, day and destination spas are seeing every day the benefits that Ayurveda is bringing to their clients - and their business.

WE WRITE BOOKS, ARTICLES, AND MAKE TRAINING DVD’s
Our classes are supported by our books and training DVD’s. Melanie’s book, Ayurvedic Beauty Care, was the first of its kind be published in the west. The new book, Ayurvedic Spa, is the first book to teach Tibetan body work techniques that are integrated into spa therapies. WE also write regularly for professional journals, including Les Nouvelles Esthetique, Dermascope, Skin Inc., and have been featured in Day Spa, Marie Claire, and Yoga Fit, to name a few.
WE MAKE PRODUCTS AND EQUIPMENT
As we were one of the first companies to introduce Ayurveda to the spa industry, we found it necessary develop and manufacture the products and equipment necessary to perform our treatments. Our spa products are made with high quality, organic essential oils and are designed to please those who prefer more western aromas. Most of our equipment items are manufactured by local artisans and craftsmen in the USA. Other equipment is sourced with the same high standards in mind. We have also found a number of brilliant musicians whose music is ideal for the spa treatments we offer and teach. Our products and equipment are available both for RETAIL and WHOLESALE purchase. They are all professional quality, but you do not need to be a professional to order from us, either on our website or by phone.
WE OFFER TREATMENTS
Both Robert and Melanie are massage professionals and offer these five treatments, other Ayurvedic spa services, and lifestyle counseling.
As part of our mission, we endeavor to preserve Indian and Tibetan Ayurvedic techniques that have become rare even in their homelands. It is our fervent wish that interest in them will not only preserve these techniques, but will also spark greater interest in the entire Ayurvedic and Tibetan medical traditions and other cultural and spiritual contributions offered to humanity by both the peoples of India and Tibet. At the same time, we endeavor to be true to the spirit of both the Indian and Tibetan traditions of Ayurveda in creating new, exciting, and effective treatments for the spa and beauty industries.
