Ayurvedic body therapies are a significant part of the healing process in Ayurvedic medicine and originated from ancient Indian traditions. These therapies are called “rasayana” therapies and are rejuvenating, cleansing and purifying to the mind, body and spirit. They replenish the nervous system, nourish the dhatus or bodily tissues and build ojas, the immune system. In addition to being balancing and rejuvenating, these therapies are also lovingly relaxing and stress reducing. Herbalized aromas and oils are used to support individual care.

Abhyanga

The word for “oiling the body” in Sanskrit, is Snehana, which means “TO LOVE”. Unique to Ayurveda, this treatment moves the vayus or “winds” that govern the physical and subtle body channels. When functioning harmoniously, they assure the vitality and health of our body and mind. This treatment balances the chakras or subtle energy channels within allowing for a feeling of deep peace, clarity and perception.

Abhyanga is traditionally practiced with two therapist with choreographed sequence of rhythmic strokes utilizing customized herbal oils to deliver nourishment to the tissues (dhatus), relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind and nervous system. The benefits of this treatment are endless: improves sleep, and circulation, reduces dry skin and gives the skin a beautiful soft glow, increases ojas (immune system), and brings nourishment to all tissues in the body. Because each body type is unique, the oils are blended with specific herbs to meet your personal needs. The specialized movements of Abhyanga (abee-yan-ga) is designed to correct the movement of Vata Dosha throughout the body, stimulate the movement of lymphatic fluid and release toxins from the tissues.
