As one client wrote “Tea Room features various herbal teas freshly brewed. You can take your tea out the back patio to enjoy a little peace and quiet or my favorite, take your cup with you and enjoy a short walk up to the beach and watch the sunset -lovely. I treated a small group of friends to a mini-spa day and the owner include the tea as an extra for our group. It was the perfect ending to our various foot soaks, scrubs, sauna and massage.”

The teas we stock at Creative Chakra Spa are medicinal in nature in that they are pure loose leaf herbs and we have included the medicinal benefits from drinking these herbal preparations, unlike store wrapped tea, our tea is fragrant and fresh to the sight, smell and taste.

Ayurvedic means the science of life (Ayur = Life, Veda = Science). This ancient medical philosophy developed thousands of years ago in India. Where it is said the Gods themselves passed the knowledge to humans. Ayurveda maintains health and enables your body to fight illness through therapies, massages, herbal medicines, diet control and exercise. Yoga is an essential part of any Ayurvedic practice. Have a look at the doshas below to help determine your Doshic type, our Ayurvedic specialists will help determine which Tea Blend is right for your dosha.
Ayurvedic texts recommend the principle of opposites for reducing the level of a dosha that has become aggravated. Since the characteristics of Vata include dryness, coolness, roughness, lightness and constant motion, qualities that are opposite to these in diet and lifestyle help restore balance to Vata dosha.
Factors that can cause Pitta dosha to increase in the physiology include a diet that contains too many hot or spicy foods, fasting or skipping meals, over-exposure to the sun or to hot temperatures, and emotional trauma.
