Snana - Himalayan Bathing Therapy
Thousands of years ago, practitioners of ancient medicine looked to nature for cures to holistically heal the body, mind and spirit. Existing in harmony with nature was an imperative, an important tenet of the Soba Rigpa tradition of medicine in Bhutan. All of these time-tested remedies were willed to healers of future generations. Having experienced it for themselves, a fair share of people all over the world swear by the faith reposed in these traditional herbal treatments and their remarkable capacity to completely purge persistent ailments. Hot-stone baths, a dip in the natural mineral springs, practicing yoga amidst nature, meditating in peace in the company of monks, massages with aromatic organic oils and balms are reminiscent of the conventions, purity and comforts of a bygone era.
