You have made it to the home stretch of winter, and with March around the corner, you may even feel a glimmer of hope for warmer temps and sunny skies. Spring, the season of rebirth, cleaning and starting anew, is finally upon us and so may be your preparations for cleansing or detoxing. Enter Hamsa Ayurveda & Yoga, Chicago’s first and only fully equipped ayurvedic center, offering services such as natural health consultations, ayurvedic and detox treatments, classes and an herbal apothecary.
Hamsa’s organic and eco-vibe can be found throughout the space, from the decor and furnishings to the authentic ayurvedic treatment tables that are made from local poplar trees. Experienced ayurvedic practitioners provide unique and custom tailored treatments that are prepared by hand, using organic herbs and essential oils and tailored to your specific mind/body type. Choose from a vast menu of services that includes signature treatments such as Chakra Dhara and Champi which use healing, medicinal oils to restore balance in the body or a deeply relaxing warm oil Abhyanga massage. Hamsa also offers Panchakarma, which is one of the most powerful forms of detoxification. Detoxification courses and programs include consultations, private meditation and yoga, custom ayurvedic treatments and lunch for your doshic type. If individual programs isnt your thing and you prefer group experiences, look for Hamsa’s upcoming classes like ayurvedic wine making, ayurvedic nutrition, a cooking demo, and a four-week detox class.
