The word for "oiling the body" in Sanskrit, is Snehana, which means "TO LOVE". Unique to Ayurveda, this two-person choreographed treatment utilizes herbal oils to deliver nourishment to the tissues (dhatus), relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind and nervous system.
The benefits of this treatment are endless: improved sleep, improved circulation, reduces dry skin and gives skin a beautiful soft glow, increased Ojas (immune system) nourishment to all tissues in the body.
Because each body type is unique, the oils are blended with specific herbs to meet your personal needs. The specialized movements of Abhyanga (abee-yan-ga) massage are designed to correct the movement of Vata Dosha throughout the body, stimulate the movement of lymphatic fluid and release toxins from the tissues.
This is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind. Warm, Dosha-specific oils and herbs are continuously streamed over the Ajna Chakra or third eye, taking the participant on a journey deep within. Shirodhara is the signature treatment for all nervous system, anxiety, tension, depression and mental disorders. Read more about this treatment on our blog!
