 Join NIIKA QUISTGARD, CAS, LMBT to experience and learn to give others three fundamental, traditional therapies of Ayurveda…

• Rasa Abhyanga – full-body oil massage
a soothing traditional oil massage performed to calm the nervous system, loosen deep-seated toxins and re-establish correct circulatory patterns. Calming and regulating to Vata.

• Swedhana – steam application
pure Pitta steam application to drive out excess Vata dosha, soften tissues and encourage movement of toxins out of “hiding” in preparation for elimination.

• Shirodhara – oil flow over forehead
the steady thread of warm oil streams over the forehead, to facilitate deep calm, replenishing sleep, mental and muscular relaxation and subtle hormone balancing. Deeply calming to Vata and regulating to Sadhaka Pitta.

These enjoyable and effective protocols are used in fundamental ways in Ayurvedic treatment to restore balance, health and wellbeing.

  • “The Ayurveda therapies training gave me confidence to be a true healer. The best part was bonding with the other women. I learned so much!”

    Emily M.
  • “I’d studied Ayurveda with many teachers, but it didn’t resonate with me–in my body–until I worked with Niika. Her insight, care, and translation is powerful. My work with her continues to inform my practice and my teaching.”

  • “I think everybody should explore all Ayurveda has to offer. Experience abhyanga–the traditional Ayurvedic oil massage–and other Ayurvedic therapies.
    My experience with Niika was excellent!”
