What is Abhyanga?
Abhyanga is the Sanskrit word for self-oil massage. Looking deeper into the meaning, it means “movement of sustenance towards all the bodily tissues so they radiate health.” Simply put, it means that when we stimulate the blood flow throughout our body and invigorate our senses, such as through massage, we radiate health.
I invite you to read and learn more about it here: Benefits of Self Massage in Ayurveda – Abhyanga | Banyan Botanicals. Why is is so important? What are the benefits? You will be amazed! I certainly was! I have been practicing Abhyanga for about 3 months now. I can see a difference in my skin and body for sure. To me, this is probably the most supreme act of sacred self-care. Do know, Ayurveda treatments can take anywhere form 1-6 months to see results. Depends on the body. Be patient. It will be worth the wait. I promise!
