Ayurvedic Oil Massage helps boost immunity, strengthen bones and improves circulation. Unlike massage with synthetic blends which are commonly used, Lotus Healing Sanctuary uses oils that are pure, USDA organic (free of herbicides and pesticides) and unrefined which keeps skin radiant with antioxidant properties that combat free radicals which cause wrinkling.
The focus of this post is the Abhyanga Massage Ritual where Lotus uses only pure, organic, expeller cold-pressed and heat cured sesame oil as prescribed in the ancient yogic texts. The sesame seed (Sesamum Indicum) is a tiny seed bursting with energy. Protected by an outer shell the seeds open upon ripening (thus the saying “open sesame!”). At this time the seeds are rich in calcium, copper, manganese, iron, zinc, thiamine and magnesium!
This massage ritual helps lubricate and tone skin, muscles and joints; particularly beneficial for those of Vata dosha and in the dry season as we prepare for our springtime full bloom. The gentle massage helps eliminate toxins hiding deep in the blood stream nourishing us with linoleic acid, alpha-linoleic acid, vitamins A, B and E and minerals.
Schedule a session for yourself. In addition to all the wonderful benefits already mentioned, Abhyanga Massage Ritual is absolutely the perfect remedy for sharpening the mind’s alertness and putting stressful worries to rest. Consider upgrading to the Sirodhara Ritual which includes the Abhyanga Ritual at Lotus Healing Sanctuary. By appointment only: 530-265-8811 and firstname.lastname@example.org
