Abhyanga massage is a gentle but firm whole body massage from head to toe using warm medicated oils. This is traditional massage also commanly called as Kerala Ayurveda Massage.
The massage is done in a soft rhythmic way with one or two persons massaging at the same time for forty five to sixty minutes.
Abhyanga massage is a deeply relaxing, rejuvenating experience as well as treatment in certain illness.
A regular Abhyanga protects from stress, anxiety, exhaustion and Vata disorder. It nourishes the body, extends the life span, provides good sleep, improves the skin texture, improves the vision and provides better physical stability.
Abhyanga treatment is the best way to control and balance Vata in the body. Vata is the predominant entity in the sense of touch and skin is the organ of touch.
