The Scarlet spa's treatments are based on the age old tradition of Ayurveda which is said to have originated more than 4000 years ago and is believed to be the oldest health system known to man today. Ayurveda works differently in that instead of treating symptoms, it treats the whole person, working holistically to identify and redress imbalances at an emotional, physiological and spiritual level. Massage is an important part of ayurvedic therapy and works on marma (vital) points around the body, to open up and realign energy channels releasing blockages and putting mind and body back in synergy with one another.
All treatments are built around your Dosha (body type). There are three types - Vata, Pitta and Kapha which assess your bodies combination of vital energies and it is the imbalance of these energies that guides the therapists to create the most appropriate treatment for you.
