Rebalance Your Clients with the Complete Shirodhara Kit

Ayurvedic spas are becoming increasingly popular. Want to try a new service to bring in an entirely new clientele? Or even surprise your existing clients with an exciting new service?

Ayurvedic practice is considered a medicine that treats mind, body, soul and the universe as one being. Its belief holds that all things, including people, are composed of the five elements of water, fire, earth, air and space. If the balance of these five elements becomes disrupted within a person, illness occurs. Rebalance is possible through Ayurvedic practices to restore the five elements and regain health and happiness.

Interested yet? Take a look at the Copper Complete Shirodhara Kit / Manual

This is the traditional system for giving a shirodhara. Fully hands on, the flow of oil comes from the copper pot, onto the person's third eye, down the hair and vinyl strip, and into the warming pan, where the flow continues with the shirodhara therapist re-pouring the warmed oil back into the copper vessel. While this method requires skill and an ability to quiet one's own mind, it is the most energetically positive way to give a shirodhara treatment.

System includes:

  • Copper Shirodhara Stand
  • Copper Shirodhara pot w/control valve
  • 2 Copper Pouring Pitchers
  • Electric Solid Element Burner
  • Vinyl Strip for directing the oil back to the pitcher (not shown)
  • Shirodhara Manual with the history, benefits, and various methods of the treatment.
Want to know a little more?

To understand Ayurveda, one must first know that its foundation lies in the three forces: Creation, Change, and Destruction (sattva, rajas, and tamas in Sanskrit.) These three forces are called gunas. One guna cannot be without the others, everything that exists goes through these stages. When the gunas interact with one another, the result is the five elements: Ether (space), Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Everything we see, touch, think, and experience has some combination of these elements within. Each element carries specific attributes that make it unique. In life, none of the five elements ever exists alone as each successive element is born from the one before it. Think of Ether as the vastness of the cosmos. This space is the home for all objects in the universe, namely energy. When sattva, rajas, and tamas take a hold of this universal energy in space, the result is air, the first state of matter. When air shifts through the three stages, it starts to move around, causing friction. This action produces heat and light and fire is born. As this pattern continues, fire liquefies matter and a new cycle starts as water comes forth. As the water goes through its stage of destruction, it evaporates, and earth solidifies from what is left behind. Then the process starts over again, and it is happening all around us all the time. 

Get ahead of the trend, and try it!

The Color of White & It's Impact on the Spa World!


White is a color!..And a powerful one in fact!  A simple color, or seemingly color-less, white is actually a very complex color and has a lot of symbolism in our daily lives. At its most complete and pure state, white is the color of perfection! As on the stripes of the American Flag, and the symbolism of the white wedding dress, white signifies purity and innocence. It is the most commonly used color for interior design, especially in Spas, Salons, and Medical Offices. Why?...


1) Purity: Perception creates inner cleansing and purifying of thoughts, emotions, and spirit to refresh and strengthen your clients and your overall well-being!


2) Cleanliness: For it's purity. White allows dirt, and the alike, to be easily noticed, so using white encourages the business to maintain clean surfaces, and a germ-free environment. It is also the reason why doctors, estheticians, etc. wear white jackets and lab coats. When it comes to decor, using white for negative space makes rooms appear to be open, larger, and uncluttered.

2) Psychological: White is the color of new beginnings. Since white isn't stimulating to the senses alone, it is the blank slate that opens the door to make lasting impressions on the mind of your clients. Just think, when you walk into an all-white spa, you automatically perceive it as being clean, comforting, and refreshing.




3) Reflective:  Scientifically speaking, since white is found all the way at the end of the visual spectrum, using white when decorating, in conjunction with other colors, creates great contrast causing the other colors  to "POP!" Recommended combinations include white/black and white/red.


4) Protection/Encouragement: White offers a sense of peace, calmness, comfort and hope, which can ease your clients from stress or emotional issues.


Pure Spa Direct (hence Pure) offers everything you need to make your spa the clean, pure, warm, welcoming, and peaceful place you always imagined!...And no better time than now, since it is Spring Cleaning time!
