Abhyanga is a traditional Ayurvedic massage therapy that involves the use of warm herbal oils to nourish and rejuvenate the body. The massage begins with the application of the oil, which is carefully selected based on the individual's dosha (mind-body type) and any specific health concerns. The therapist uses long, flowing strokes and gentle kneading movements to massage the oil into the skin, targeting specific marma points (vital energy points) to promote balance and relaxation. The therapeutic benefits of abhyanga include improved circulation, lymphatic drainage, and muscle relaxation. The warm oil nourishes the skin, soothes the nervous system, and helps to release toxins from the body. Abhyanga is known to promote a sense of grounding, balance, and harmony, making it a deeply rejuvenating and calming experience for both body and mind. After the massage, the individual may be advised to rest and allow the beneficial properties of the oil to permeate the body, leaving them feeling nourished, revitalized, and deeply relaxed.
