The Ananda

50 or 80 minutes

During this blissful, grounding treatment, enjoy warm fragrant oils as they are massaged into your hair and scalp. Based in Ayurvedic practices, the Ananda treatment clears the hair follicles, stimulates new hair growth, brings moisture to the skin, and leaves the hair revitalized. The Ananda scalp treatment created by—and exclusive to—Rasa Spa. Our guests and team agree that it is truly a one-of-a-kind session.

For a deeply relaxing and therapeutic experience, we recommend the following hydrotherapy circuits along with your Ananda treatment:

Before your treatment:
Step one: Contrast bathing
Step two: Towel-dry hair and self-massage scalp in the sauna

After your treatment:
Step one: Traditional sauna
Step two: Tepid to cool rinse in the shower

The healing oils of the Ananda are best left to soak into your hair and scalp as long as possible; we recommend our bathing hydrotherapy circuits before, but not after, your treatment. A pre-treatment warm soak—followed by a cold plunge or cold shower—will enliven your senses and begin the process of detoxification. While it feels great to immerse your whole body in the waters—including your head and face—be sure to leave time to dry your hair before your treatment as oils do not penetrate well into wet hair. Towel-drying your hair in the sauna works well and including some self-massage to the scalp helps begin the process of stimulating your hair follicles. You may also use blow dryers; it is fine if your hair remains slightly damp for your treatment.  

After your treatment, spend time in one of our traditional saunas to help the warm Ananda oils continue to sink into your hair and scalp. Breathe deeply and let the relaxed state from your treatment continue to help you unwind tension in your head and neck. End your hydrotherapy circuit with a tepid shower. You may want to rinse your hair and scalp, but we recommend refraining from shampooing for the day, if possible, to receive the maximum benefit of the oils. To keep your head warm and the oils contained and focused on your scalp treatment, shower caps will be provided for you by your practitioner and are available in our changing rooms for your convenience. (Post treatment shampooing may take a few gentle washings to remove all of the oil, lathering shampoo on the scalp before adding water is also helpful.)

Hot Stone Massage

50 or 80 minutes

Using heat-absorbing basalt stones, our hot stone massage combines elements of the earth with a grounding human touch. Through both the massage and the therapeutic use of the hot stones, this treatment deeply soothes muscles and increases circulation with the release of heat.

To extend the benefits of your session, we recommend the following hydrotherapy circuit:

After your treatment:

Your therapist will help move fluids, stimulate awareness, and open your channels to support healthy immune system function. Following your treatment, your therapist will give you more of the Immune Boost scrub to enjoy in a refreshing post-treatment shower. 

The Immune Boost is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.

Exfoliating Dry Brush

50 or 80 minutes

Experience a technique that has been used for centuries to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, bring blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin, and help in the detoxification process. The Dry Brush session includes hot towels and a massage with a divinely warming cardamom amber oil from red flower. Especially recommended in the winter months, a dry brush treatment will restore vitality and glow to your skin, stimulate lymphatic circulation, and bring an experience of distinctive whole-body freshness.

If you would like specific or deep work on an area of your body, please consider the 80-minute session, as the 50-minute session only allows time for a full body circulatory massage.

Steam Room
With a wrap, we highly recommend a full body cold plunge for the cooling portion of your steam hydrotherapy. 

After your treatment:
Step one: Warm soak
Step two: Short traditional sauna with meditation 

Invigorate your body and support detoxification with a pre-treatment steam followed by a cold plunge and a period of rest and relaxation. If a cold plunge feels daunting, take a shower that begins tepid and turn to cold at the end. Be sure to drink plenty of water as you move through the circuits. 

After your wrap, enjoy a leisurely post-treatment soak in one of our warm pools, followed by a cool shower. Lastly, enjoy a short sauna to dry off and seal in the warmth and vitality from the day. Take a moment in the sauna to breathe, experience stillness, and set intentions for new self-care routines.

Wholeness Healing

50 minutes

This balancing and restorative energy session is about recognizing and supporting your body’s own self-healing ability. The therapist uses light, gentle contacts to clear the major joints of the body, and then encourage balance between the chakras (energy centers) that are located along the spine, and which align with major endocrine glands. Clients describe this work as deeply relaxing and grounding, and have found it can be useful with emotional processing or when they have been feeling “scattered.” This session can be done with the client comfortably clothed.



50 minutes

The two Japanese words Rei and Ki mean “spiritually guided” and “life force energy.” Simply put, Reiki is energy healing for relaxation and stress reduction. As you rest in comfortable clothing on a massage table, the Reiki Master uses light touch to help your body heal itself. Pain, stress and tension melt away as Reiki energy is shared in a safe, healing way that soothes, nourishes, and relaxes you from head-to-toe.


Massage & Body Add-Ins and Add-Ons

Add-Ins add no additional time and Add-Ons adds additional time to session.


Choose from one of our three Rasa signature blends to add another level of sensory heightening to your session. Aromatherapy massage also includes the caring application of hot towels and our own Rasa foot cream treatment.

Grounding: With therapeutic essential oils of sandalwood, vetiver, and palo santo, this deeply grounding blend is great for clearing negativity and creating a deeply relaxed, balanced state of mind.

Relaxing: With therapeutic essential oils of lavender, neroli, and sandalwood, this sweet and light blend is beneficial for meditation, calming and focusing the mind. 

Uplifting: With therapeutic essential oils of bergamot, mandarin, lime, and frankincense, this uplifting blend gives a sense of peace and joy as it amplifies energy, bliss, and light. 


Magic Mend Arnica Oil (add-in) 

The arnica application—using locally-made Magic Mend from Heartstone Herbal—is a soothing and effective additional treatment, perfect for anyone who has a bit of pain or inflammation that needs extra attention. The anti-inflammatory effects of Magic Mend oil, which includes arnica and a blend of other medicinal herbs, is great for sore muscles, arthritic pain, bumps and bruises, and even acute injuries—both new and old.


Contrast Stones (add-in)

Alternating application of hot and cold stones creates a soothing and sensorial treatment: the healing heat drains the body of toxins and the cool stones awaken the senses. This add-on offers a real opportunity to unwind with an ancient prescription for health and vitality.


Cupping (add-in)

Cupping with silicone cups affects the body at both a deep and superficial level. Unlike a typical deep tissue massage—which doesn’t move lymph as well because of the compression involved—cupping pulls up on the tissue, allowing for lymph to flow more easily. The suction also pulls stagnant blood, hormones, and metabolic waste to the surface so it can be flushed out through the lymphatic system. 

The strength of the suction of the cups used can be adjusted by the therapist. Specific cupping options include working on the feet and calves to help with pain from plantar fasciitis; shoulders to help with frozen shoulder or other shoulder issues; glutes and hamstrings to assist sciatic function; forearms for tennis elbow; and quads and IT band for hip pain. 


Eminence Hand Treatment (add-on 15 minutes)

If no amount of lotion seems to soothe your dry hands, it may be time for a more intensive hand treatment. Using the Eminence Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel along with the Eminence Monoi Cream allows us to exfoliate, enrich, and moisturize, leaving your hands feeling soft and new. A joint tension relieving massage is integrated into this special add-on that adds fifteen minutes to your session time.


Full Body Dry Brushing (add-on 15 minutes)

Experience a technique that has been used for centuries to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, bring blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin, and help in the detoxification process. Especially in more sedentary winter months, adding a dry brush treatment will assist in boosting your immune system by stimulating the lymph, which helps you resist infections.

Clients are welcome to take their dry brush home for continued daily use after their session.
