Abhyanga – Warm Oil Body Therapy

An abhyanga (abee-yan-ga) is a one or two-person choreographed Ayurvedic therapeutic body treatment. Abhyanga uses specially prepared oils individualized to the client, and is designed to bring nourishment to the tissues, deep relaxation to the muscles, and calmness to the mind. Because each body type is unique, special formulated oils are used which are prepared with herbs or essential oils to meet your special needs. This therapy is beneficial to the nervous and immune systems and is particularly good for anxiety, stress, Parkinson’s disease, muscle tension, chronic fatigue and general toning and rejuvenation.
