Today I was fortunate to receive an Ayurvedic Abhyanga as part of my training today. Abhyanga in Sanskrit literally means "oil massage". This is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that involves massage of the body with copious amounts of warm medicated oil specific to the individual. Many times an Abhyanga is performed by two massage therapists working in sync or can be done by one practitioner. Various types of oils can be used on the body depending on the individuals health.
An Abhyanga unlike western massage therapies are not very deep but characterized by their rhythmic fast strokes that aid in calming the mind.
After the treatment you bathe and are advised to relax for the remainder of the day, and that is exactly what I am doing!
