Benefits of Ayurvedic Oil Massage

In Sanskrit SNEHA means OIL as well  as LOVE. The effects of abhyanga massage are similar to the effect of the saturation of love,  allowing  sneha to pass through the minute channels in the body and penetrate deep into the layers of tissues. Abhyanga  is a  full body synchronized massage traditionally received by two therapists. The oil is applied in long rhythmic strokes and includes massage of the scalp, face, chest, abdomen and side body. According to Ayurveda it nourishes all tissues,  is grounding and relaxing, allowing the body to heal. The oils used in this therapeutic massage are based  on the season and your health condition.  It is extremely  nourishing for individuals who have chronic stress, anxiety or insomnia.    

Ayurvedic traditional oils are made with a base of sesame, sunflower or coconut and are  infused with many  medicinal herbs, and may have cows milk, goats, milk, beeswax or castor oil.  The skin being the largest organ it is very important to provide the proper nourishment as well as utilize the skin’s ability to bring medicinal herbs into the body through the blood stream down to the bodies deepest layers of tissues.
