The Ayurvedic practice of abhyanga( full body) oil massage, offer physical benefits like released muscle tension, lymphatic drainage, and more nourished skin from head to toe. It stands out from other massages due to its focus on the skin, rather than just the underlying muscles—from the oils used to the circulation-stimulating movements, it’s more like a facial massage for your whole body, and also it is deeper and effective then regular massage.
Use of warm oils and focus on specific energy points called Marma in the body makes an Ayurvedic massage different from other spas massage. Plus, don’t expect a ton serious movements—the treatment is much more focused on your energy fields and freeing emotional burden, physical tension, than working out the kinks in your muscles.
Restoring wholeness in body, mind and spirit is what we are all seeking, both individually and collectively. Ayurveda’s approach is cellular. Warm oils deeply penetrate cells and release physical, mental and spiritual toxins, hence it is detoxifying as well as healing.
