Falli's Word

Good day my family and friends! I am excited to announce my next travel destination will be Broomsfield, Colorado for my favorite charity's 4th Annual Gala!  As many of your know, Luvin Arms was created by my son Shaleen and his wife Shilpi to rescue abused and neglected farm animals with a goal of finding them safe forever homes. All of my spa tips are sent to their organization. I will report on how much you helped me to raise after the event. Thank you for your generosity and continued support!

Fall is upon us and Ayurveda considers a seasonal routine an important cornerstone of health, year around. We offer Ayurvedic consultation for helping you to balance your body during seasonal changes and/or illness. Any time the body is out of balance, we can help. Dr. Goswasmi is our resident Ayurvedic expert and 60-minute consutations are $85. Balancing the nature of your local climate with lifestyle choices that offset the potential for seasonally-induced imbalances is one of the simplest ways that you can protect your well-being


The fall brings with it a predominance of air element and prana (breath, life giving force) is abundant in the atmosphere. Autumn is dry, rough, windy, erratic, cool, subtle, and clear, and these are all qualities shared by Vata dosha. Therefore, autumn is considered a vata season. This same principle illustrates why taking a few simple steps to balance vata this fall can be tremendously beneficial.


Vata Season Lifestyle Choices

One of the most effective ways to support vata is by establishing a daily routine. Try to do the same things (wake up, exercise, eat meals, go to bed, etc.) at roughly the same times each day. Set the tone for your day by rising early, taking full advantage of the silence, stillness, and peace that are intrinsic to the early morning hours. Then, you can calm your nervous system, awaken your tissues, and ground your energy by massaging your skin with warm, organic Sesame Oil. Follow this practice with a warm, relaxing shower, leaving a coat of oil on the skin to absorb throughout the day. Steam baths and humidifiers can help to preserve internal moisture as well. Some gentle yoga, and ten to fifteen minutes of meditation will further your sense of stability and wellness. If you enjoy a little fragrance, vetiver, geranium, and citrus essential oils are very appropriate this time of year. Try to be in bed by 10 p.m. so that you get plenty of rest before dawn.


Vata Season Diet

Your diet is a powerful way to soothe vata this fall. Substantive, oily, nourishing foods that are high in protein, high in fat, brought to life with warming, stimulating spices, and served hot, will go a long way toward maintaining your internal reserves of moisture and keeping you grounded through the vata season. You’ll also want to favor the sweet, sour, and salty tastes. In general, eat mushy, soft foods and garnish them generously with ghee or oil. Breakfasts of cooked grains—like oatmeal, tapioca, cream of rice, and cream of wheat—are perfect at this time of year. Lunches and dinners that include steamed vegetables, hearty grains, soups, and stews are grounding and moisturizing. We also recommend herbal teas made from ginger, licorice, or a combination of cumin, coriander, and fennel, to help in promoting proper digestion and warmth. Ayurvedic teas are availabe to purchase at the spa. 


As always my wish for you is to become the best version of yourself. My spa, me and my team are here to support you in your jouney through Ayurvedic consultation, and a varity of spa services and classes. Let me know if there is something that I can offer that will heIp you with your health goals. I look forward to the next time we see each other and thank you for choosing Seventh Wonder Holistic Spa as part of your journey. 


Love and blessings,

Naps

in the Himalayan Salt Room

$20

What is the next best thing to a relaxing massage? A nap of course.  We now offer naps in our signature Himalayan Salt room. Add it to any service for the ultimate in relaxation.

While napping in the salt room you will also be receiving dry salt therapy, or halotherapy which is a holistic therapy using micro particles of salt to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness, endurance and overall wellness. Dry salt therapy helps to alleviate symptoms of many respiratory (asthma, cough, cold) and skin conditions (rosacea, psoriasis, acne). The negative ions found in Himalayan salt counterbalance the many positive ions we pick up from electronic devices like cell phones, tablets, and computers. Neutralizing the atmosphere in this way stabilizes mood, decreases stress and prepares the body for ultimate healing.
