Abhyanga – Ayurvedic Self Massage

21 Sep

What is an Abhyanga Massage

Abhyanga is a firm but gentle whole-body massage which incorporates the 107 marma points of the body.  This ayurvedic massage is prescribed to be performed everyday right before your shower.  Herb infused oils are poured over the body and massaged in a rhythmic motion with firm but gentle strokes then followed by a warm bath or shower.  Leaving you feeling energized and rejuvenated for the rest of the day.  If your schedule doesn’t allow for a daily massage, try and squeeze it in a least 3 or 4 times a week.

How Does it work

This helps the skin, the largest organ in the body, perform its diverse functions efficiently – whether that’s allowing toxins to be released from the body, or nourishment to be absorbed by the tissues. Abhyanga allows the skin to absorb the healing qualities of the oils and facilitates the release of toxins that may have accumulated during the night.

This wonderfully unique experience is also well adept at treating certain disorders and diseases, nourishing the body, extending your lifespan, promoting good sleep, enhancing skin texture, sharpening your vision, regulates body temperature, clears blocked  energy and blocked senses,  and finally fortifying physical stability and balance.
