Abhyanga is a full-body Ayurvedic massage that uses heated herbal-infused oil to promote overall health and well-being. The specific flow and speed of the massage strokes as well as the amount of warm herbal oil used are dependent on the individual's doshas, or energies, in the body.
There are three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each dosha has its own qualities and characteristics. Everybody has a unique amount of each dosha in their body, and the idea is that balancing them can help you achieve more vibrant health.
Massaging the body in a specific direction and at a specific speed improves blood circulation, facilitates removal of the toxins from the tissues, relieves physical and mental fatigue, betters the functioning of the Musculoskeletal system, clears stiffness and heaviness in the body, and leads to a feeling of lightness. Abhyanga performed regularly will assist in the development of a healthy body, helps in improvement of body figure, recuperates the body tissues, and reduces body weight as well as fat.
*This massage includes the back, arms, legs, and belly. You can expect to be very oily when the session is complete.
