Ayurveda is the traditional healing system of India – one of the world’s oldest. Like traditional Chinese practice, ayurveda is based on the idea of restoring balance to the whole person.
Abhyanga, loosely translated, means “attending to a part of the body in the present moment.” A therapist performs this full-body ayurvedic-style massage using warm sesame oil. Marmas, or subtle points of energy, are addressed on the face and feet to balance body, mind and spirit. This traditional therapy releases toxins, enhances immunity, nourishes the skin and creates deep relaxation.
