You’re probably wondering what an ila Kundalini massage treatment is?!
Don’t worry, I had never heard of it either! At least not in reference to a spa service…
After a bit of investigating what I had started to hear is that this treatment was “incredible”, “unique” and “like no other”. These testimonials were from Spa guests and Nita staff alike.
As this is The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge’s signature organic treatment, I figured that I’d have some further investigating to do and might have to have a treatment myself… you know, for ‘research’ purposes.
The Kundalini, pronounced kun·da·li·ni is a term used in yoga to describe latent energy believed to lie coiled at the base of the spine. The 75 minute massage therapy uses provincially exclusive ila™ organic products that are not only organic in ingredients, but also the way in which it’s made.
The treatment is designed to reawaken this dormant energy through the combined use of essential oils, ancient massage techniques and chakra healing.
What is chakra healing I hear you say?
There are 7 main energy sources located in alignment throughout the body, known as chakras (base of the spine, below your navel, above your navel, the heart, the throat, the third eye, the crown of your head). Focused massage has been known to encourage energy flow and re-balance the body, creating an overall sense of well being.
The massage itself was softer than expected and throughout the treatment the ancient massage techniques and essential oils came to life. My masseuse spoke about how the ‘light’ technique aids in draining your lymphatic system, releasing any toxins from the body.
I highly recommend this treatment for anyone looking for a mental and physical system rejuvenation & recharge.
