Our approach to beauty is more holistic. That's why we've introduced a new assortment of Ayurvedic Massage offerings. Read on for a few updates to our menu of services!

Holistic Massage addresses the entire body as a whole, concentrating on the physical body, the mental body and the emotional body. Since we launched these services in May, our guests have been intrigued and wanting more information. This quick FAQ should set you up with more of what to expect with our new Holistic Massage experiences.


1. What is it Ayurvedic Massage?
Simply put, it’s a warm oil massage. This massage helps balance the mind and body and calm the nervous system.

2. Will I get oily?
Yes, we use a generous amount of warm sesame oil in the Ayurvedic Massage services. See #3. 🙂

3. Can I shower and wash my hair after my services?
After any of your treatments at PENZONE Salons + Spas, you may use our shower and hairdryers. (PS – we have lots of products in there for you to peruse and use! BONUS!) Or, you can head on over to one of our talented stylists and they’ll set you up with a Blowout or Express Blowout to get you back in action.

4. Am I able to get specific areas massaged during the Ayurvedic Massage?
Traditional Ayurvedic Massage does not focus on specific area during the service but your massage therapist may be able to work on areas of need before we start the Ayurvedic Massage. Please mention this during the review of your medical history with your massage therapist.

5. What product is used in the Ayurveda Back Treatment?
The products used in the back treatment are Rose, sandalwood and Kaolin clay. This mixture is applied to the back to hydrate and balance the skin while gently exfoliating it. Next, a cooling masque will nourish and tone your back.

6. Is massage included in the Back Treatment?
The goal of this treatment is to tone and balance the skin, while also calming and relaxing the mind. Therefore, a massage is not included in the Ayurveda Back Treatment.

7. What is Shirodhara?
It is a head and scalp treatment. Shira means head and dhara means stream. This blissful service beings with a scalp and face acupressure massage then leads into total relaxation. A steady stream of warm oil flows onto your forehead, quickly absorbing into your skin. 

8. Is a massage included in the Shirodhara Treatment?
This treatment consists of acupressure on the head and scalp massage followed by warm oil flowing on the forehead.


Allow us to tell you about a few modifications to our Holistic Massage Menu that rolled-out September 1st!

NEW! Ayurveda Experience $140

We’re adding a new service to allow you to experience the best of both worlds! Our new Ayurveda Experience combines our Ayurveda Abhyanga Massage and Shirodhara Treatment for an hour of balance and bliss. For those who need a quick refresher, during the Ayurveda Abhyanga Massage, an abundant amount of warm oil is gently massaged into your skin using long fluent strokes. This will be 45 minutes of the experience. To top off your zen-ed out state, you’ll experience 15 minutes of a Shirodhara Treatment — that’s 15 minutes of a warm and relaxing oil drip on your third eye chakra.



We’ve updated our Shirodhara Treatment to a 30-minute experience. Feel renewed and restored as your service begins with a scalp massage that promotes balance from within. As warm oil gently flows over your forehead and hair, your nervous system will be calmed, lowering your stress and anxiety, easing headaches and promoting more restful sleep. Complimentary, take-home oil is included in this experience.
