Ayurvedic Full Body Massage (Abhyanga)
Ayurvedic oil Massage therapy is a holistic healing and complementary medicine program and not a conventional massage, oils are applied to detox physical toxins, mental toxins and emotional toxins and also for pacifying aggravated vata dosha (due to hectic and stressful lifestyle and improper foods/food habits) which is the root cause of imbalance, also it helps relieve stress.
Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic external therapy where the therapist uses aromatic herbal oils. It is a holistic treatment also meant to nourish the body with healing touch and warmed oil, and certainly promotes healthy circulation and joints. This treatment is very balancing and is excellent for detoxifying toxins in your body.
Ayurveda massage therapy is not only a muscle work but the approach is cellular. Warm oils deeply penetrate cells and release physical, mental and spiritual toxins, hence it is detoxifying as well as healing cellular therapy. Hence the stress is removed from the root place thus it promotes self healing of cells.
Ayurvedic Abdominal Massage (Nabhy Abhyanga)
This treatment helps to stimulate and regulate Agni (digestion). It is very commonly given to women in the post natal period, as it helps to stregthen the abdominal wall and prevents unnecessary weight gain during this period.
As well as focusing on diet, Ayurvedic treatments are also a great way to rebalance during Spring. Nabhi Abhyanga is a perfect detoxing treatment. The abdominal area is where the digestive fire (Agni) is located. Healthy Agni governs our metabolism and is vital to our wellbeing, keeping us young and strong.
Nabhi Abhyanga stimulates and regulates our inner digestive fire, toning the abdominal organs. This non-invasive treatment also assists in weight loss around the stomach area and beautifully detoxifies our body from stagnated toxins.
According to modern medicine all the main digestive enzymes are produced by the small intestine which is also located just behind the navel region, thus the Nabhi Marma point is the first and the only point of contact and source of food, water and air for the foetus while it lives in the mother's womb for 9 months.
Ayurveda gives immense importance to this region and says that this point or area should be nourished from the very first days of a baby's and this should continued life long. Any massage given to this area including the whole abdomen helps to regulate the Agni which in turn supports a healthy life.
