Ayurveda for its healing properties. Just before
your massage, put a small amount of oil in a glass jar placed in a container of
hot water and warm it to a comfortable temperature. Start with your head. Place a

neck and the upper part of the spine. Apply a small amount of oil to your
entire body to naturally penetrate into the skin. Next massage your arms with
circular movements over your joints up and down over the long bones. Massage both arms hands and fingers moving down the front of your body, use

spine as best as possible. Next massage both legs with circular movements over
your joints up and down over the long bones. Finally, massage the top and bottoms of

greater if you can leave the oil on the body for 15 to 20 minutes before taking
a bath or shower. Abhyanga a simple daily essential tool for overall health and

  1. make sure you sit on a cloth cushion chair and use a cloth rug under your feet to get these things all oily and soon, grungy. 😀 thank you for the nice video.

  2. Hey, any advice for the problem of having to shampoo your hair every day after the abhyanga, it's not healthy for the hair?
