Abhyanga Ayurvedic Massages

What if we tell you that Ayurveda has the answer to your anxiety and all your health woes? After all, what is more relaxing than soothing abhyanga or a traditional oil massage which will not only relax the mind and body but also improve the skin, strengthen the bones and delay ageing.

Abhyanga is a powerful Ayurvedic treatment where the trained therapists smear warm medicated oil all over your body. This oil, then, by careful massage strokes is allowed to seep into the skin from where it reaches and nourishes the tissues, muscles and the bones.
