Application of oil to the skin followed by massage in specific direction is known as ABHYANGA.
It is a therapeutic procedure where the selection of oil is choosen based on the PRAKRITI.
It involves rubbing of the skin with herbalised oil (usually sesame oil is the base) to increase blood circulation and drawing toxins out of the body through the skin. It is a very relaxing body massage using warm body oil appropriate for your constitution at the time of treatment. The skin is the largest organ of our body and whatever is topically applied gets absorbed by the body and enters the bloodstream.
Ayurveda states “Oil is to the body as love is to the soul”.
Your body needs regular oleation to function properly and to be at ease. This treatment is a great opportunity to provide your body what it needs but rarely gets. You will feel rejuvenated and relaxed after this treatment.
