NEW YORK, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A carpet retailer is converting part of its New York showroom into a meditation center with nurturing services created by mind-body physician Deepak Chopra.

ABC Carpet & Home's ABC Om Mind, Body & Spa will include "holistic healing for mind-body balancing," along with massage and Ayurvedic therapies, its Web site says.

The showroom spa, with healers from New York's Chopra Center, is part of a month-long promotion, "Gateway to India," beginning Feb. 16, that grew out of ABC Chief Executive Paulette Cole's interest in Eastern religions, Crain's New York Business reports.

Shoppers paying $75, for instance, can receive Shirodhara, in which a soothing stream of warm oil flows over the metaphysical "third eye" between the two eyebrows to create a meditative state.

Or they can choose Abhyanga, with two masseuses using gentle strokes and warm herbal oil.

The spa also includes yoga and meditation sessions, the Web site says.
