Personalized Healing Through Touch
Ayurvedic massage, known as 'Abhyanga,' is a holistic healing practice integral to the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda. Unlike standard massages, an Ayurvedic massage is tailored to your unique body type or Dosha - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. By addressing the specific needs of each Dosha, Abhyanga provides a deeply therapeutic and rejuvenating experience.
Understanding the Doshas
Vata (Air & Space): Characterized by qualities like dry, light, cold, and mobile. Vata governs movement in the body and mind.
Pitta (Fire & Water): Exhibits attributes such as hot, sharp, and liquid. Pitta oversees digestion and transformation in the body.
Kapha (Earth & Water): Known for being heavy, slow, cool, and oily, Kapha provides structure and lubrication.
Massage Techniques for Each Dosha
Focus: Deeply nourishing and grounding
Techniques: Slow, steady, and warming massage strokes that calm the nervous system
Oils: Warm, heavy oils like sesame are used to counteract the dry and rough qualities of Vata
Focus: Cooling and soothing
Techniques: Moderate-paced strokes with gentle pressure to avoid overheating
Oils: Cooling oils such as coconut or sunflower to soothe the intense nature of Pitta
Focus: Stimulating and invigorating
Techniques: Vigorous and warming massage strokes to enhance circulation and aid in removing excess Kapha
Oils: Light and warming oils like mustard or safflower to counter Kapha's heavy and cold qualities
