Ayurvedic Abhyanga

For a total relaxation...

Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic massage dating back to over 4000 years. The term is coming from Sanskrit "Ayur" (life) and Veda" (knowledge or science).

The benefits of Abhyanga massage are as physical as psychological and spiritual. It brings a total relaxation. It suppresses strain, brings energy to the body and coordinates the "chakras" (wheels) that are the energy centers. Among other benefits, it can help to eliminate tiredness by increasing vital energy, to restore restful sleep and to increase a better management of emotions and stress. It is very well adapted to Westerner lifestyle.

Abhyanga means "All body oil massage".
It is a hot sesame vegetal oil-based massage mixed with ayurvedic plants. Each combination is adapted to the different "doshas" (ayurvedic characters). It brings together modeling, frictions, tapping and pressures on energizing points called "Marmas".

1 hour- or 1 hour and a half- session with study and definition of the dosha in order to adjust some ayurvedic principles for a healthier lifestyle.
