Traditional ayurvedic treatments and therapies using oils, aromatic botanicals, herbs, nutrition and sadhana are encouraged to assist in the flow of energy through the body. When energy is not flowing, life does not flow with ease. I support you in addressing emotional, physical and mind health, each interconnected. In a consultation we will dialogue together on steps to move you through blocks and addressing current and longstanding issues. Many of the blissful treatments calm and relax over-active nervous systems and low immune systems from stress, tension and lifestyle.
At the core of all treatments, therapy and rituals is soul medicine. Heal the soul first, the mind and body will follow.

“Maria creates an atmosphere that allows complete relaxation and rejuvenation. The smells, the sounds, her loving touch all conspire to transport you to a place of healing and well being.” – Laurie Burnaby, Santa Ynez, CA
“Maria assessed my dosha and applied exactly what I needed. My senses were elevated by heavenly and earthy mix of scents, finest pure oils applied on my skin and, of course, a healer’s soft touch! I was thrilled by the head massage and really appreciated the hand massage. I do not know exactly what Maria used on me but I remember enjoying fresh rosy smell and the chocolate mask the most! I also love the ambience of the treatment room.” – Artemis Ozten, Santa Barbara, CA
“Wonderful healing experience. So nurturing and gentle and perfect for relaxation. I then went back for the Abhyanga oil massage and that was also an amazing treatment. The experience overall is deeply relaxing and healing. I highly recommend the treatments at Sama Ayurveda if you are looking for more than just a typical spa treatment. This is really a wellness and wellbeing paradigm!”
– Sarah Klein, Santa Barbar, CA

Maria’s sensitivity and innate ability to tune in to her client come through her talented hands. It was not just the most wonderful facial/massage, but also a transformative and spiritual experience! I most emphatically recommend her!” – Carol Dorman, Carpinteria, CA
“Amazing 90-min Ayurveda facial healing that took me absolutely to BLISSLAND! I felt like a purring cat by a cozy fire. Maria used the most lovely aromatherapy and products and was very attentive to my specific skin and energetic needs. I have had all kinds of facials in Santa Barbara…from chemical peels at dermatology offices, microdermabrasion, fruit acid peels, facials using only high-end French products…you name it…my skin from my treatment at Sama Ayuveda stayed glowing, soft, and smooth for longer than any other facial I have had in town and I was the most relaxed I have ever been getting a facial. She is such a cool person and is genuinely interested in healing the whole person…not just giving you an amazing facial (which she will definitely do).
-E. C., Santa Barbara, CA
