Abhyanga - Ayurvedic massage


What is Abhyanga? 

An abhyanga (abee-yan-ga) is a one or two-person choreographed massage. Abhyanga uses specially prepared oils individualized to the client, and is designed to bring nourishment to the tissues, deep relaxation to the muscles, and calmness to the mind.

Abhyanga can be administered on its own, or as part of a panchakarma detoxification regime.

The oils used in abhyanga are specific to the dosha that need balancing.
