What is Abhayanga, Abhayanagam, Snehan?

 

If you never had one you might be wondering what is an Ayurveda Massage Treatment and how is it different from a regular massage.

 

Abhaynga is a sanskrit ward mentioned in Ayurveda. It is an Ayurvedic Body Massage treatment with warm therapeutic herbal oils that are infused with medicinal properties. The application of herbal medicated oil to our skin, has for centuries played a significant part in Ayurvedic holistic and herbal health care.

 

How is Abhayanga Ayurvedic massage different from other massages?

 

Abhayanga, Ayurvedic Massage is a unique type of massage that works on the concepts of ayurveda, that everything is made of five basic elements  - space, air, fire, water and earth. These five elements form the three basic body Doshas or humours, that are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.  Complete equilibrium and harmony between theses three body humours is a sign of good health and opposite is true for a disease. Lets discuss some of the special features of an ayurvedic massage or abhaynaga that makes it unique from other known massages:

 

A. Customised therapeutic Oils Ayurvedic Massage:

Ayurvedic massage focuses on balancing these three doshas. A careful consideration is given to the person’s imbalanced dosha, then based on that imbalance, an ayurvedic therapeutic oil is mindfully chosen from a stock of hundred different varieties of Ayurvedic oils. As all the ayurvedic oil have different properties. 

 

That oil is warmed in a double boiler and applied in the copious amount on the body. The oil penetrates the pores of the epidermis and subcutaneous adipose tissues  further layers and helps to loosens ama/toxins which have accumulated there.

 

B. Marma Points Energy Flow Ayurvedic Massage:

 

What is a marma massage?

 

Marmas are vital energy points mentioned in Ayurvedic medicine. There are 107 Marma points in our body. These marma points when function well leads to effective flow of vital energy in our body. Sometimes these marma points can get  blocked due to a disease process in the body. Effective massage with right technique and pressure on these marma points helps to unblock any obstruction and promotes a healthy energy flow in the body. 

 

A qualified and experienced Ayurvedic therapists focuses on clearing these energy channels or pathways and also focusing on seven chakras that are also closely related to marma points, hence helping to dislodge any obstruction during the marma abhayanga, ayurvedic body massage.

 

C. Specific Strokes and Movements Ayurvedic Massage:  

The Ayurvedic massage therapist uses various dry and wet massage techniques including tapping, kneading, and squeezing, pinching, pounding etc as well as traditional massage strokes. Movement of the massage strokes is dependent of their illness and the amount of lymphatic blockages. A typical Ayurvedic massage that promotes lymphatic drainage is performed in an upward stroke and promotes the circulation towards the heart. The overall approach increases circulation and lymphatic drainage. 

 

D. Incorporates whole body Ayurvedic massage:

Abhaynaga ayurvedic body massage has a significant role in promoting health. The massage is performed in supine as well as prone position and includes face, head, ears, feet and tummy massage, along with arm, legs, back, neck and shoulder like a typical massage. Oil is applied in all of these areas unless indicated otherwise. 

 

E. Deep skin pores penetration Ayurveda massage

Due to the extremely small size of the  ayurvedic oil molecules, Ayurveda oils penetrate the skin easily and transport the healing properties of nature, directly to the cells in the body. Ayurveda texts have mentioned the duration for the oil to reach from the skin to various layers of the body.

 

  1. Hair follicles in skin epidermis- 5 minutes
  2. Dermis of skin - 9 minutes
  3. Blood - 12 minutes
  4. Muscles - 15 minutes
  5. Fat adipose tissues - 18 Minutes
  6. Bones - 24 Minutes
  7. Bone marrow - 27 minutes

 

It is important for you to know that, a typical Ayurvedic massage is not heavy on actual pressure during massage, instead, it focuses on manipulating energy flow and promoting deep retention of Ayurvedic therapeutic oils in the body.

 

In addition to its moisturising effects, Ayurvedic massage also has significant therapeutic benefits. According to Ayurvedic Science, it alleviates Vata aggravation and reduces physical fatigue and mental stress. It helps to improve flexibility and promotes suppleness.

 

Abhyanga massage also aims to improve the skin health and makes it delicate, soft and tender, but stronger. It has rejuvenating effects, which helps to improve lifespan and reduce the signs of aging. All of its beneficial effects are generally attributed to its effects on blood circulation and relaxation. It tends to increase blood circulation and aims to induce deep relaxation, which is ultimately helpful in a number of diseases.

 

Acharaya Charak, (one of the principal academics of Ayurveda), in his main text book, Charak Samhita, Sutra Sthan Chapter 5, Shloka, 85-85, has mentioned the advantages of daily abhayanga, as servicing the body similar to a machine and he co-related it to oiling the machine for smoooth and strong operation. (See following Shloka).

The ayurvedic massage may last for over an hour depending on the speed and depth chosen to suit your Ayurvedic body-type.

 

Ayurveda employs a variety of powerful massage techniques to help instability within the body.

 

Most Ayurvedic massages are luxuriously relaxing, to soothe the body and calm the brain, while others are more stimulating, to energise the body and mobilise toxins.

 

Treatment plans are usually individually tailored, so whether you need to rest the brain or purify and revitalise the body, a suitable treatment package is prescribed to help carry the body back into stability.

 

However, each and every day you can also carry out your own ‘mini-massage’  at home– it is simple to do and impressive in delaying the ravages of time, toning your epidermis layer and helping strengthen the defence mechanisms.

Your ayurvedic massage therapist will use ayurvedic herbal oil and specific strokes relevant to your body’s constitution which aid the body in the systematic elimination of ama/toxins by moving them into the excretory channels.

 

 
 

 

Your ayurveda practitioner will aim to unblock stagnated energy flow by massaging 107 marma factors (energy points) which induces a more rhythmic power circulation and leaves you feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated.

 

The Ayurvedic massage finishes with the head being massaged with the treated oils as well. This enables you to take stability between the brain and our bodies and stabilise the neurological program.

 

An Ayurvedic massage also helps counter combined stiffness, arthritis, physical and mental fatigue and aids with sleep.

 

It also aids to slow down the ageing process by enhancing epidermis texture and complexion.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • It was a wonderful experience with u guys.A natural way to fight the disease with no side effects of treatment.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz

  • I started to get depressive mood and nightmares since diagnosed with varicocele and hydrocele. Specialist recommended me getting coil embolization to block the veins. I was hesitant with the idea of it and ignored his advice. I thought I would try with natural approach to deal with my health issues. After reading online I started to make healthy changes in my life-style and food regime e.g. avoiding inflammatory and junk food, energy drinks etc. Also reduced smoking and alcohol for 3 months. But my pain and swelling in the scrotal area did not improve. More over I started to get lack of libido, premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties. Due to that I started to remain frustrated and angry most of the time. My relationship with my family members, friends and partner started to get difficult. Finally came across Dr Saini ayurvedic medicine clinic in Melbourne. Had a detial consult with Dr Saini. His Ayurveda approach for varicocele and its related problem worked like magic for me. First month he modified my life-style and food, based on my ayurvedic makeup. He also introduced some his own blends of organic herbs and spices with daily breathing exercise. In second month I did panchakarma detoxification. Now there is no pain or swelling in my scrotal area. My manpower is back to normal (even better than earlier), having grounded emotions and sound sleep with best physical and mental health. I highly recommend everyone to follow ayurvedic life style and its natural way of healing your body. Dr Saini is best in his job.
