Benefits of Abhyanga

Abhyanga or Ayurvedic oil massage involves the process of massaging the whole body with warm oil infused with pre-medicated herb from head to toe. It efficiently helps to remove the toxins from the skin.

Abhyanga allows the body to absorb all nutrients from the oil and herbs and has the ability to relax and calm the nervous system; at the same time recharge and rejuvenate your mind and body for peak performance. The one who does regular oil massage restores the balance of the doshas and enhances wellbeing and longevity.
