Surprising Benefits of Ayurvedic Oil Massage

  • 29 Apr 2019

The Ayurvedic holistic full body massage therapy is also known as ‘Abiyangam’. It nourishes the body, reinstates the balance of the doshas and improves the wellbeing and longevity of a person. These are the surprising benefits from receiving the abiyangam massage long term.

Eliminates body impurities and reduces weight 

Ayurveda considers excess body fat as an imbalance of the body. The medicated oil used in the massage acts as a fat burner and gets rid of all the impurities and toxins.

Calms the nerves and promotes better sleep 

The massage stimulates and calms the brain, the nervous system, skin and joints. It helps to temporarily wash away anxiety and replace it with a feeling of calmness and contentment. The oils used are heavy, warm, calm and grounding. It helps a person to sleep deeper and longer.

Softens and smoothens skin 

Abhyanga oil therapy creates a buffer between the skin and the harsh environment of sun, wind and pollution. The skin will become more resistant to dryness, cracking and bruising because of the hydration and lubrication of the skin using the oils. The full body massage also strengthens the fragile skin and reduces the formation of wrinkles.

Improves blood circulation and stimulates internal organs 

Abhyanga stimulates blood circulation which encourages the removal of metabolic wastes and provides energy and stamina that can last the whole day. It also revitalises and energises the cells of the body. The oils, herbs and massage are carefully chosen and customised to suit your body type and doshas, that will eliminate any stored-up toxins and promote self-healing of the cells.
