hastabhyanga oil massage
This relaxing treatment helps with tired hands and arms due to overexertion which is commonly seen in our “texting” society nowadays. Ayurveda views the hands as sacred organs of action. Each finger possesses the 5 pancha mahabhutas, or 5 great elements, of fire, water, air, earth, and ether. By massaging the hands we encourage flexibility of the joints and greater grip strength.
Like the head and feet, the arms and hands also hold marma points that when stimulated help in the healing process. Tiredness and strain are eliminated and your hands will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Our ayurvedic practitioners use ayurvedic oils specific to each person’s dosha type. These highly natural oils penetrate into the bodies deep tissue and support further healing due to their medicinal properties.
About Ayurveda: Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning “the science of life and longevity”. It is the oldest system of health discipline in the world, first described in India about 5,000 years ago. It is an ancient wisdom of health and healing that emphasizes prevention. Ayurveda offers methods of nutrition, bodywork and energy through a holistic approach in the true sense of the word. It is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature, a delicate balance between mind, body and consciousness that can only be achieved through awareness.
