Abhyanga: The Ayurvedic Massage

A Pleasant Prescription for Mind/Body Health 

How can a ritual so luxuriously relaxing, so blissfully comforting as a full-body warm oil massage, rev up your body and mind, gearing them up for peak performance? There is an explanation for the seeming contradiction. Accumulated stress and toxins in the mind and body dissolve during the daily massage. A full-body warm oil massage therefore acts as a powerful recharger and rejuvenator of mind and body. 

Here are some of the benefits traditionally associated with regular performance of this pleasant ritual:

  • Increased circulation, especially to nerve endings
  • Toning of the muscles and the whole physiology
  • Calming for the nerves
  • Lubrication of the joints, softening the skin
  • Increased mental alertness
  • Improved elimination of impurities from the body
  • Increased levels of stamina through the day
  • Better, deeper sleep at night 


Abhyanga, the ayurvedic oil massage, provides the means for transdermal absorption of the healing qualities of the material used in the massage, and it helps the skin, which is the largest organ in the body, perform its diverse functions efficiently, whether it is allowing toxins to be released from the body or nourishment to be absorbed by the tissues. It is like oiling the engine of your car — if you do it regularly, your engine will be in peak condition, and give you years and years of trouble-free performance. 

Enjoy your massage in our Niya Spa.
