Abhyanga massage

Is a traditional Ayurvedic full-body massage using herbal infused oil to impart tone and vigor to the seven tissues of the body (Dhatus) in order to nurture and foster their growth. Abhyanga helps to restore the balance and equilibrium needed to maintain physical, mental and emotional health.

The oil selected for Abhyanga will depend on a person's constitution and current state of being.  This is likely to change according to factors such as seasonal rhythms, age, diet and lifestyle. The oil used for treatment will be that which is most suitable for a individual’s current state of being and will aim to pacify any existing imbalances in order to restore equilibrium and promote health and well-being. 

A traditional synchronized full body massage can also be given by two experienced Ayurvedic practitioners using medicated oil to suit the individual's Prakriti (constitution). This four-handed treatment provides a smooth and rhythmic massage to leave you feeling mentally calm and physically restored. Abhyanga improves physical health by assisting with the elimination of toxins, clearing heaviness and stiffness in the body, resulting in a feeling of lightness and assists with inducing a state of deep relaxation.
