Abhyanga

Abhyanga (Massage)

Abhyanga is an ancient cultural healing practice in Ayurveda. It is a Snehana Karma (oleation process), which literally means to impart love by touch and with Ayurveda oils. This process is a complete mind, senses and body treatment. Physically, it soothes, heals and regenerates the body.  Massage relaxes the muscles, nourishes the skin, and relieves pain and fatigue. It helps to improve digestion, circulation, the endocrine, lymphatic and nervous systems.

Abhyanga also focuses on emotional and psychological well-being. We often “store” emotions and stress in our bodies. Our muscles can become tense and our digestion may be impaired. Abhyanga serves to release this tension. Touch in itself is a subtle, yet powerful healing agent.

Massage treatments are specific to the individual and their condition. Each massage is tailored to the individual to enhance the therapeutic potential. Depending on constitution and the state of health of the individual, different herbs and techniques are used. Herbal pastes, dried herbs, salt, mud and rice, herbs poultices and silk, or herb fibers may also be used.
