Abhyanga is a classical Ayurvedic massage with large quantities of warm oil, to which essential oils are added for extra therapeutic effect.
Abhyanga is incredibly relaxing and balancing. It increases circulation, energises the whole body, while calming the nerves and making you more focused. It lubricates the joints and makes your skin smooth and soft. It is the massage that is highly recommended to anyone who wishes to unwind, relax and purify the body and the mind.
Please bring a large towel and a change of underwear for the massage. As a lot of oil will be used during the massage, your skin and hair will be oily.
Abhyanga can be performed at any time of the day but it is best not to plan any vigorous activities after it. The best is to relax and drink a lot of warm water or herbal teas. Abhyanga ritual lasts 1-2 hours depending on your preference and budget.
