What is Abhyanga?


Abhyanga is loosely translated into English as ‘Application of oil onto the body’ and is arguably the most important treatment in Ayurveda, India’s ancient system of medicine. Abhyanga is cleansing, relaxing, balancing and restorative Ayurvedic massage treatment with herbally medicated oils. It is a rhythmic massage that requires uniform pressure applied all over the body from head-to-toe which induces a wonderful sense of well-being and rejuvenation. It allows trans-dermal absorption of nutrients from the oils and herbs. Abhyanga supports the largest organ of the body (skin) to effectively eliminate toxins and nourish the tissues. This treatment can be adapted to treat a wide range of disorders and when performed regularly will arrest the signs of aging and keep the body detoxified.
