Abhyanga is a firm but gentle whole-body massage that helps the skin, the largest organ in the body, perform its diverse functions efficiently – whether that is allowing toxins to be released from the body, or nourishment to be absorbed by the tissues.

- Increases Longevity
- Reduces Stress
- Strengthens Immune system

- Reduces fat

Essentially an Abhyanga treatment allows the skin to absorb the healing qualities of the oils and facilitates the release of toxins that may have accumulated during the night. Involving therapists working in sync, a heated blend of oils (infused with nourishing herbs and flowers) is lightly applied to the entire body. The therapists then wait up to five minutes to let some of the oil absorb into your skin before they begin treatments your entire body.
Even pressure will be applied with the whole hand using a combination of circular motions and straight strokes, although lighter pressure is used on sensitive areas such as the abdomen and the heart. More oil and time will be spent where nerve endings are concentrated, such as the soles of the feet, palms of the hands and along the base of the fingernails.
