Abhyanga is a traditional Indian massage that "stirs" things up internally by using smooth, gentle, consistent strokes and rhythmic movements. It helps release toxins that are stored in tiny pockets and gets things moving in often forgot about areas. Medicated oil is used (in abundance) to help open pores and allow toxins to be released. The warm oil works by opening the pores of the skin and travels deep into channels, tissues and joints, providing incredible nourishment, and lubrication to the whole system. A way to think of it is like oiling the engine of your car; if you do it regularly, your engine will be in peak condition, if not, the engine will rust and age. We need to keep our bodies oiled for optimal performance.
This Treatment will help with:
Increased circulation, especially to nerve endings
Toning of the muscles and the whole physiology
Calming the nerves
Lubrication of the joints
Increased mental alertness
Improved elimination of impurities from the body
Softer, smoother skin & hair
Increased levels of stamina through the day
Better, deeper sleep at night
WHAT TO EXPECT
This treatment will calm and relax the nervous system which will invite healing and rejuvenation to do its thing. Keep this in mind as you plan your after treatment schedule; allow for an emotionally easy environment after you leave your appointment so you may gain continual positive healing.
Wear clothes, or bring a change of clothes that aren't your favorites; an excess amount of oil is used so be OK with possibly getting oil on your clothes and under garmets.
NOTE TO WOMEN: The breast area is extremely important to stimulate to allow proper flow of lymph and allow circulation of accumulated waste deposits that have a tendency to be stored in these areas. If you have any issues with having your breasts massaged, please let me know and I will modify the treatment.
