Traditional Ayurvedic warm oil massage focused on nourishing the body, calming the mind & relieving stress. Selected PAAVANI oil blends accompany gentle, swift strokes that balance energetic centers in the body & soothe the nervous system. This deeply relaxing massage stimulates the lymph, releases toxins, increases circulation, promotes restful sleep, relieves anxiety, removes fatigue & restores the proper flow of prana (life force energy) through the subtle energy channels. Abhyanga is both rejuvenating & detoxifying to the mind, body & spirit.

Abhyanga is traditionally performed by two therapists; massaging each side of the body in complete unison. This unique style allows the client to completely relax & let go; releasing any tension or thoughts throughout the massage. PAAVANI specializes in this traditional style of Abhyanga & highly recommends it to any individual seeking a blissful experience. A therapeutic essential oil of the client’s choice is included in the massage to enhance the benefits of the therapy.
