When stimulated through therapeutic touch or massage, the skin releases a pharmacy of healing chemicals that have health-promoting effects on the physiology. In addition to feeling good, regular massage detoxifies the body’s tissues, increases circulation, calms the mind, and enhances immune function.

A daily self-abhyanga massage with aromatherapy massage oils is a deeply healing and deeply enjoyable ayurvedic practice that activates the body's inner chemistry which can slow the aging process. Depending upon your unique mind-body type (dosha), your massage technique can be gentle or more vigorous.
