Are you burnt out and feeling depleted? Exhausted, having trouble focusing, suffering from anxiety, overwhelm, headaches, poor digestion or having trouble sleeping? Are your relationships suffering because you feel ‘off’ most of the time? Don’t want to spend another second in front a screen, but can’t step away?

We offer a few solutions for your benefit. Which one is right for you, right now?

1. Digital Intervention

This is a 3-hour Therapeutic Treatment session at VitalLiving Ayurveda Massage & Wellness Spa that will quickly re-integrate the mind and body, stabilize brain wave activity, settle the nervous system and rejuvenate you deeply. Perfect for when you’re in an acute state of  tech overuse. We call this treatment combination a ‘pattern disrupt.’ After this session, you should be able to rest and reorient yourself and make some fundamental shifts in routine.


Ayurvedic Massage (Abyhanga)

The Blissful Mind (Shirodhara)

Eye Bathing (Netra Basti)

Sinus Treatment (Nasya)

We begin with a luxurious and restorative Ayurvedic Massage (Abyhanga) and move onto The Blissful Mind Treatment (Shirodhara) to calm and quiet the mind. Next, the eyes and optic nerves are soothed and rejuvenated by a Chrysanthemum/Rose ghee bath. We finish with a Sinus Treatment (Nasya) to cool and lubricate dry and inflamed sinuses, balance excess mental activity and improve clarity and focus.

This is a reset for the burnt-out Technonaut. Leave us rested and rejuvenated.

We restore and strengthen a body and Nervous System taxed and depleted by tech overuse with the use of time-tested and deeply fortifying tools.

Ayurvedic Digital Detoxification features a combination of  unique Therapeutic Treatments, a little help from plant medicines and a few simple tweaks in diet and lifestyle. More like a spoonful of sugar than a bitter pill, this approach to self-care is as natural as it is effective.

“I work with technology on a daily basis and reached a place where I felt completely burnt out, with a racing and unfocused mind and low energy. I’ve never been rejuvenated so quickly and effectively than by working with VitalLiving Ayurveda. I went from being totally depleted and worn out to feeling full of energy and life in three weeks time.”

The Tools

The application of Ayurveda to your mind and body will gently and profoundly bring balance and strength to you in non-obtrusive ways. We use simple, unique, and timeless healing tools sourced from the healing principles of Ayurveda, an ancient medical science. Here are a few examples:

1. Shirodhara

IMG_0049Shirodhara (Sheer-oh-DAR-ah) is a treatment that offers profound healing to the body and mind. A stream of warm oil is continuously poured over the middle of the forehead for 20-45 minutes. The stimulation of nerve plexuses on the forehead and scalp releases neurotransmitters and neurohormones that relax and reset the body at the deepest level. Tensions around the spine are relieved, further calming and clearing the mind.

Shirodhara facilitates the release of serotonin and can also elevate alpha and theta brain wave activity. It has been shown in double blind studies to offer relief from headaches and migraines, relief from insomnia, improve sleep quality, reduce anxiety, increase better decision making, increase clarity and focus, quicken recovery from jetlag, and deeply restore and nourish the nervous system. It aids in the healing of memory loss, mental overstimulation, and mental stress and strain.

Shirodhara offers the added benefit of rejuvenating the whole body and relieving exhaustion. It recharges the body, brings clarity to the mind, increases focus, concentration, cognitive function, and helps to normalize and balance emotions and increase self-awareness. A series of treatments over time have a profound effect in treating a number of neurological and psychological conditions.

2. Plant Medicines

Ayurveda-signAyurveda uses herbs to support all aspects of mental performance, including memory, concentration, and learning capacity.

VitalLiving Ayurveda offers proven effective herbal formulas appropriate for your constitution and condition to promote nourishment and rejuvenation of the mind and body.

3. Lifestyle

“Small things, done consistently, create major impact.”– David Allen

ancient-sundial-24642379In Ayurveda, Routine is considered the linchpin that will make or break your health. A good routine regulates the processes and systems of the body and mind. It is the foundation that allows the whole being to function at a higher level. Focus, clarity and emotions become stabilized.

Although we all have unique needs, everybody benefits from a solid routine. Ayurveda offers a framework for routine filled with simple health building daily practices. With just a little education and coaching, you can build a flow for yourself that creates wellness and produces vital energy everyday.
