An abhyanga (abee-yan-ga) is a luxurious, full body massage with warm herb infused oils that are designed to deeply revitalize, nourish, ground, and balance the body, nervous system, and subtle energies.
The warm aromatic oils nourish the skin and mobilize deeper tissues, while gently cleansing and detoxifying the body allowing you to feel the healing effects for days.
