What is Abhyanga Massage?

Benefits of Ayurvedic massage
It helps eliminate toxins, improve blood circulation, reduce stress and anxiety, increase muscle flexibility and improve rest. It also improves the appearance of skin and hair. It is applied by massaging the whole body with warm essential oil, stimulating the marma points and energy centers of the body (chakras).
In Ayurveda, this massage is recommended as part of the daily routine (Dinacharya). It is also a fundamental therapy in the Ayurvedic purifying processes (Panchakarma), since it pacifies all the doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and prepares the body for the correct elimination of toxins (Purva Karma).
Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage is a holistic practice of rejuvenation and relaxation, and an expression of love for oneself and others.
