What is Abhyanga?

A Sanskrit term, Abhyanga means "Massaging the Body's Limbs" or "glowing body." It is derived from abhi, meaning "into" or "glow," and anga meaning "limb."

Abhyanga is an ancient Indian Ayurvedic oil massage therapy. It is the best way to healing and detoxifying Body, Mind and Spirit. Abhyanga is a special type of Ayurvedic warm oil massage that involves anointing oneself with healing dosha-specific oils. It can also be performed by an Ayurvedic massage therapist.

Abhyanga can be incorporated into a routine appropriate for almost everyone. The Sanskrit word sneha means both “oil” and “love,” and the effects of Abhyanga are similar to being saturated with love.

What Happens In A Visit To An Ayurvedic Expert?

Your initial Abhyanga consultation will consist of an in-depth assessment of your general health, diet and lifestyle to discover your body constitution (Prakruti). Traditional techniques such as pulse, tongue & nail diagnosis will be used to draw a diagnosis of your current health imbalances (Vikruti).

At the end of the assessment, advice will be given for your condition with suggestible changes to your diet and lifestyle to suit your constitution and restore well-being. This session will help to you understand how you can reduce build up of toxins, strengthen your digestive fire (agni), promote calmness and boost energy.

You will be given key action points along with detailed notes on diet and lifestyle advice for your Dosha (Ayurveda Body & Mind Type). Some of the lifestyle tools we use with clients include dietary modifications, daily routine adjustments, contemplative practices, breathing and movement techniques to address local physical conditions. It is our goal to support you through your healing journey with not only great skill and knowledge but also with compassion and understanding.
