Benefits of Ayurvedic Massage
An Ayurvedically prepared herbal-oil application (abhyanga) nourishes the skin, aids in removing impurities, stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation and relaxes the mind and body, promoting overall healing. This treatment enhances the ability of nutrients to reach starved cells and also removes stagnant waste. The desired result is a heightened state of awareness that will direct the internal healing system of the body.
