Heat Therapy/ Agni Therapy
Includes: Bio Mat, Heated Aroma Therapy, Chi Machine and Sacred Mantra.
In Ayurveda, imbalances of temperature (too hot or too cold) and motion (too fast or too slow) are two of the physical factors that can lead to toxicity (ama) and disease in the body. Lack of heat and motion are the signs of a body low in life force nourishment, called ojas. Heat Therapy is one of the leading therapies offered in Ayurveda.
In a Heat Therapy session we work in silence with healing minerals, plants, heat and motion. You will receive a 45-minute session lying down on our Crystal Amethyst Bio Mat. Our receptionist will bring you upstairs to our magical and sacred 3rd floor Sanctuary and Wellness Room where you will enjoy complete privacy. You can expect sacred mantra music, therapeutic-grade essential oils and an aromatherapy diffuser sending negative ions into the air with a unique blend of heating oils prescribed specifically to you to activate Agni, the element of fire, within you.
Our Bio Mat, made of Amethyst and Tourmaline Crystals, is a heated crystalline mat activated by Infrared rays. When heated, this mat generates negative ions that increase prana and circulation. These ions can activate more purification from the inner bodily functions that may be slow moving or cold. These imbalances may reveal themselves to you as an improper or inconsistent digestion or metabolism, as well as through your body’s inability to work out the free radicals that slow down proper cellular function.
This deeply penetrating heat therapy can significantly reduce pain, discomfort, or lack of prana/chi flow which in turn, reveals itself as arthritis, muscle pain, back pain, kidney/adrenal pain, and joint pain. Increasing blood flow and internal movement is deeply nourishing and can begin to push out toxins and ama related to rheumatism, chemotherapy, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, slow digestion and many other physical ailments. Using this mat at higher temperatures for longer periods of time can reverse hypothermia associated with cancer and other maladies. The radiant heat from the 17-layer construction penetrates up to six inches so you can actually raise your body temperature using this mat.
Amethysts, long known for their healing qualities, generate negative ions that create incredible well-being in the body. Tuning into the healing properties of gems and minerals are a large part of Ayurveda since the medicine comes from the consciousness of the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air and ether.
After the Agni/Heat Therapy session, you will be offered our Sun Chi Machine. It is recommended to never go over 15 minutes per day. Your session will be 15 minutes of the 60 minute Heat Therapy.
The Sun Chi machine will increase circulation, blood flow, and lymphatic system health, as well as assist in detoxification, digestion, and increasing bronchi alveoli, oxygenation and prana/chi flow. These are all systems of the inner dhutus (systems and tissues) that can experience an imbalance of cold temperature and inert movement within.
Even if you wish to just be away from your responsibilities in a quiet, private and sacred space where beings work daily on their wellbeing, an Agni/Heat Therapy Session may be perfect for you.

Michelle has permission and certification as an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist from the Ayurveda College of California as directed by Dr. Marc Halpern at the Sivananda Ashram. Marc wrote the epic book on Ayurveda called “Healing Your Life” and has a bestselling Yoga Nidra. He is the President of the Ayurveda Association in The United States. She become exposed to the healing arts of Ayurveda most extensively in South India in Kerala and in Bali Indonesia where she went on a full retreat of learning the various arts of Ayurveda in the form of diet, purification techniques, cooking, marma/massage points and oiling the body, called “Abhyanga” and oiling the third eye, called “Shirodhara”. Noting that in India, Ayurveda is offered along side Yoga and often Reiki in all yoga studios or wellness facilities, she found very little support or education in this natural healing art and means of healing our life beyond the mat in our own country, as popular as yoga is. For this reason she went on a quest to unify the 2 together, making the practice of Ayurveda/ Yoga a 24 hour practice in everything that we do. Ayurveda reveals this in a very practical way and is accessible to everyone. It brings your inner medicine guide back to you and calls upon you to heal your life through the lifestyle choices you make it every moment. It is also the original means and creative way to live, invoking deep, self guided and empowering life transformations. Read more about Michelle>>>
