You can tell her products are made with love and her immense depth of knowledge
I've also had the good fortune to use some of her skin care products. Regular self-abhyanga massages were one of her recommendations for me and I was hesitant to use so much oil on my skin, since I thought my skin tended to be oily already. As it turns out, with the skincare products I was using, I was actually stripping my skin of its natural oil and to balance that, it was overproducing oil. Once I started using the Five Prana face oil and body oils for abhyanga massages, my skin has become much healthier and more resilient, and definitely not oily. You can really tell her products are made with love and her immense depth of knowledge. The care she puts into formulating her products and using high quality ingredients is very apparent. I definitely recommend Marissa and all her ayurvedic services to any and everyone, even if you don't have any specific imbalances to address. Mahalo (thank you) Marissa!

Marissa is a compassionate and deeply knowledgeable practitioner. She is passionate about her work and it comes through in her attention to detail and her quiet confidence. I felt seen, heard, and mindfully attended to during my treatment with her. She creates a space of welcome in care in her physical environment and in her way of being. When I use the Five Prana skin care products she has created and when I drink the Five Prana tea she has prepared, I feel nourished not only physically, but spiritually as well. I know that I am putting things on and in my body that are lovingly crafted and meant for my wellness -- what a beautiful gift!

She thoughtfully and skillfully handcrafts her items
Marissa is one of the most thoughtful practitioners I’ve worked with. She is knowledgeable, attentive and thorough in her consultations. I felt listened to! She thoughtfully and skillfully handcrafts her items herself, which makes me doubly as excited to use them since I know I’m supporting local and getting a high quality product— whether it’s a spice blend or eye cream. You definitely want to stock up on some Five Prana pitta oil for the body. The smell is delicious and just the thing to get you through the cold season!

I ordered the Kapha Natural Perfume as a treat for myself after the holidays and I couldn’t be more pleased. I received my tidy little package quickly. The fragrance is warm, spicy and perfect for the cold winter months. Wonderful experience. Thank you❤️ I’ll be back for more, with friends.

Soothing, gentle, refreshing and absorbent
Marissa’s five Prana Ayurvedic body oils have improved the appearance and texture of my skin. I use the eclipse oil, vata face oil, vata body oil and saffron eye ghee. These natural products are soothing, gentle, refreshing and absorbent. Dry flakey skin and crepiness have been minimized by using these products.
