Abhyanga Massage

The Abhyanga massage is the most well-known form of Ayurveda, an ancient Indian healing system that is still widely practised today. By stimulating the body’s energy channels and centers, the Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage aims to restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. The oil is essential in this massage because it is believed to restore balance and nourish the skin when applied through the massage strokes. This course teaches you how to perform the Abhyanga massage, as well as the underlying Ayurvedic concepts of energy, balanced constitution, diet, and lifestyle.
