Abhyanga: The Ancient Ayurvedic Therapy That Can Change Your Life

Abhyanga, also known as Ayurvedic oil massage, is an ancient therapy that has numerous health benefits. Here's a look at Abhyanga, a 6000 years old traditional practice and how it can enhance your wellbeing.


What is Abhyanga Massage?

Abhyanga, often simplified as massage, but it is more than just a physical manipulation of the body.
Abhyanga is an artful blend of touch and therapy with medicated herbal oils, which is most of the times part of a group of therapies to nourish/correct imbalances in the body, mind and soul. It involves massaging the entire body with warm herbalized oil tailored to one's body type, skin type for rejuvenation purpose or to treat disease conditions etc. Unlike western massages that focus on manipulating muscles, Abhyanga additionally aims to increase peripheral circulation, mobilize toxins, nourish tissues, and balance the doshas - the bioenergetic forces that govern health according to Ayurveda when it’s administered along with detoxification therapies.


Benefits as a Preventive Medicine

When done regularly, Abhyanga massage alone confers stability, longevity and protection against daily stresses. Benefits include:

·       Calming the Nervous System: The gentle strokes of Abhyanga soothe the nerves, reducing stress and promoting a sense of calm.
