Ayurvedia (Abhyanga) Massage

Ayurvedic (Abhyanga) Massage 

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old Indian healing science of life philosophy and practice; considered the sister science to Yoga. Ayurvedic or Abhyanga Massage is an Indian massage drawing from the principles of Ayurveda. In India, the practice is tied deeply to the notion of self-care. This type of massage is designed to create balance for the mind, body, and spirit, and help the body heal itself. The treatment is much more focused on manipulating your energy fields and freeing emotional burden than working out the tensions in your muscles, although it does offer muscle tension relief. Abhyanga Massage is often called the glowing massage, and that glow comes from the inside out. It nourishes the skin from head to toe and stands out from other massages due to its focus on the skin, rather than just the underlying muscles—from the oils used to the circulation-stimulating movements.

 

I will pour a warm blend of organic essential oils and base carrier oil onto your body, and start massaging using a series of superficial and deep movements to relax your nervous system, while nourishing your skin, body tissues and cells.
