Abhyanga Massage & Swedana Therapy
Abhyanga Massage is derived from the Ayurvedic Tradition. It consists of applying warm oil over the entire body. Oils are blended on site according to the clients Dosha or constitution. The massage strokes along with the oils used, nourish the tissues, open the energy channels called Nadis and allow Prana (life force energy) to flow more freely. Abhyanga massage also indirectly stimulates the Marma (energy points).
Swedana or Steam Therapy is used after the Abhyanga Massage to eliminate toxins, reduce inflammation, relieve stress, improve digestion, ease sore muscles, increase circulation and to balance Vata and Kapha Doshas.
