Types of Ayurvedic Massages covered in Course :

Ever since its inception, Ayurveda has offered a lot to mankind. Ayurvedic messages, in the form of treatment or rejuvenation therapies, have always come in handy.


A full body massage is given in this procedure along with medicated hot oil chosen according to the medical condition of the patient. Proper attention is paid to the temperature of the oil to ensure comfort of the patient. Pressure is applied on certain points, which stimulates various energies and aids release of toxins from the body.


In this head massage, stimulation of the nerves is the motive. A continuously flowing stream or `dhara’ of medicated or herbal oil is poured on the scalp, which treats mental fatigue, increases focus and clarity and relieves headache.

Benefits of Abhyanga:

Ayurvedic oil massage (abhanga) has several benefits. Ayurvedic oil massage gives similar feeling as that of the regular meditation. After massage you will feel settled, serene and in a bliss like state. Ayurvedic oil massage loosens the deep seated toxins from joints and tissues and releases them into system, where they are eliminated. Besides this, the accumulated toxins from skin are also released to give you healthy and clearer skin.

Another benefit of ayurvedic oil massage is that it strengthens and tones the muscles and even resilient to injury.Ayurvedic massage with warm oil helps to nourish, strengthen and lubricate the joints. It makes the joints resilient to wear and tear.

Another important benefit of ayurvedic oil massage is that it pacifies vata dosha. It pacifies kapha and vata, increase stamina, relieves fatigue and nourish all the body parts. Ayurveda recommends incorporating abhangam in your daily routine. Ayurvedic oil massage is traditionally performed in the morning, especially before you take a bath or shower. Sesame oil, herbal massage oil or aroma massage oil can be used for the massage.
