Abhyanga: Ayurvedic Herbal Oil Massage

Ayurvedic Massage is a santarpana (nourishing) therapy. The promotion of health and longevity depend upon the proper nourishment, assimilation and elimination of essential sustenance for our seven dhatus (tissues). Due to improper metabolism and circulation, waste products are accumulated in the different systems of the body, such as the nervous, circulatory and muscular systems. Through proper snehanam and massage, the metabolic and enzymatic functions are stimulated to assist the body to work at its optimum and vital potential.
