Shodhana Karma

shodhana karma treatment in mandala spa boracayInspired by the ancient Indian system of natural health care Ayurveda, this gentle 3-part ritual promotes healing and rejuvenation by removing environmental toxins from the body.

Part One.
Shodhana Karma starts with a traditional footbath and a Mandala Signature Massage using cold-pressed sesame oil, herbalized with Calamus root powder. The molecules of cold-pressed sesame oil are smaller than those of our red blood cells, so the oil is able to penetrate the blood stream, attract oil-soluble environmental toxins, and dislodge them consequently from body tissue. Calamus root powder improves energy and is said to be helpful during times of emotional exhaustion.

Part Two.
Following the massage is a sauna ritual (swedana), which integrates several sauna cycles, aromatherapy, and herbal tonics to further aid in the elimination of environmental pollutants from the body through perspiration. Through exposure to sauna heat, the immune system is stimulated and the endocrine glandular functions are regulated. Ginger is one of the main ingredients in the preparation of tonics used in this endeavor. The Rosemary oil used in the sauna water, on the other hand, has a stimulating and invigorating effect.

Part Three.
The treatment closes with the removal of the impurities through the Ubvartan springtime body scrub - a gentle exfoliation process, using only traditional Ayurvedic ingredients. The properties of the oil blend are chosen to balance the emotions and to restore mental and physical equilibrium. Sandalwood connects us to our soul, geranium is emotionally balancing, cardamom alleviates hypertension, and lemongrass is a kidney tonic. 2 hours and 30 minutes.

  • We've arrived and stumbled upon an eye-popping place. While walking into our room, my mouth opened automatically to drip the words "AMAZING". My first time in Boracay already seems wonderful, even if the adventure has just started. The staff are simply gentle and kind with an attitude that makes you feel like you've come home because they leave a warm feeling. Makes you feel good don't it? If I return, and hopefully I will soon, I'll be wanting to stay here again with my family altogether.
