Like yoga, Ayurveda is one of the most remarkable holistic medical systems in the world. It covers all aspects of health and wellbeing – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It includes all methods of healing from diet, herbs, yogic practices, meditation and lifestyle regimes.
Ayurveda provides the insight for an individual to create a way of life in harmony with nature and ones higher self. The Ayurvedic oil massage – Abhyanga (meaning full body massage in Sanskrit) — is an integral part of this healing system for overall health and well-being.
The Ayurvedic oil massage differs from that of a western massage, it is a relaxation treatment working on specific energy points throughout the body to release tension and toxins and encourage deep relaxation of body and mind. Accumulated stress and toxins in the mind and body dissolve during the full body warm oil massage and therefore acts as a powerful recharger and rejuvenator of mind and body and soul.
Some of the benefits of this blissful experience include:
Toning of the muscles and the whole physiology,
Calming for the nerves,
Lubrication for the joints,
Increased levels of stamina,
Increased mental awareness,
Improved elimination of impurities from the body,
Enhances the complexion and lustre of the skin,
