Abhyanga is essentially a full-body oil massage, often taken before one’s morning shower. It stimulates the various nerve points on the human body by using strong, but brisk, circular rubs.
This massage utilizes warm herbal oils, each of which is hand-picked to suit the different body types of clients. The oils help to lubricate joints and strengthen connective tissues and are generously applied for maximum penetration.
This treatment improves muscle recovery, flexibility and also improves blood circulation. It is typically followed by a Shiro Dhara (head massage) and ended with warm water and herbal paste wash.
