Evolving Spa Therapies at Dharana Shillim

What makes the ideal spa therapy? A typical treatment includes high-pressure massages, oils, and calming music. While a relaxing treat, such a therapy leaves much to be desired, especially in terms of a lasting impact. 


At the Dharana Shillim Wellness Retreat in India, Spa Therapies as a whole have evolved to highlight the ethos of the retreat. The term ‘Dharana’ reflects a quiet kind of strength, perseverance, and tenacity. Its English understanding indicates ‘holding steady’. Infact, when contextualized with the sixth stage of Patanjali’s Eightfold Yoga Path – “Dharayathi Ithi Dharana” – the term calls for a relaxed and at-ease state of concentration, a foundation for deeper meditation and contemplation.


This understanding resonates with the overall vision and philosophy of these therapies, aiming to conserve and amplify one’s life force. Understand some of these luxurious, redefined, and evolved spa therapies at Dharana Shillim:


  1. Traditional Keraleeya Ayurveda Rituals

Inspired and developed based on age-old Ayurvedic wisdom, a Keraleeya Ayurveda Ritual seeks to bring balance to the body’s humoral factors, termed Doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The process of bringing balance involves natural herbal and seed oils, along with an expert massage. By utilizing natural healing and rebalancing rituals like Abhyanga, Udwarthanam, Shirodhara, and Choorna Kizhi, natural healing and rebalancing of Doshas can be stimulated.


  1. Blissful Bodywork and Energy Balancing Rituals

Recognizing the stressful lifestyle necessitated by an urban environment, these rituals aim to alleviate fatigue and insomnia. The approach brings harmony back to its natural rhythm. Bodywork and Energy Balancing also help improve mental health, providing relief from anxiety and mood swings. Indulge in Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, and 5 Kosha Balancing Reflexology to experience a restored natural equilibrium.


  1. Body Scrub / Wrap Rituals

Ideal for a complete body cleansing, Wrap and Scrub rituals at Dharana Shillim brighten, heal, and detox the skin. The process also stimulates circulation, improving blood flow and increasing energy. Experience an Energising Aqua Mineral Scrub which utilizes ionising Himalayan Salt Crystals, or detoxify with a mineral-ruch Seaweed Body Wrap.


  1. Naturopathy Rituals

As a medicinal approach, naturopathy focuses on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Naturopathy rituals at Dharana Shillim align with this philosophy, combining it with Acupuncture and Moxibustion practices. These oriental therapies are finetuned to aid in a variety of wellness goals, from weight management and sleep disorders to hair loss and beauty. 


  1. Gemology Skin Care

Consider a truly luxurious approach to Skin Care with Gemology at Dharana Shillim. This wellness ritual utilizes Ruby, Jade, Sapphire, and Lapis Lazuli, exotic gems possessing trace elements essential to the skin’s health balance. Through this process, collagen synthesis is increased, wrinkles are reduced, and microcirculation is activated.
