Abhyanga: The Ayurvedic Massage
- Customer Reviews (0)
Ayurveda Rituals Abhyanga massage is inspired by the ancient Vedic scriptures and blending Andrea’s 30 years of experience and knowledge perfectly harmozing east-meets-west fully body healing techniques. This massage therapy utilizes the pouring of activated hot oils with customized natural herbal oil formulas for your particular needs such as Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water) body blends, as well as : Body Mapping, Observation, and techniques purposely used to create the effect your mind and body needs for healing and rejuvenation. Three key techniques are implemented according to the client’s constitutional and mental nature.
The massage also includes Andrea’s Sattvic Awakening Touch sequence. Sattva is the guna of goodness, purity, and enlightenment. It is mostly depicted as a white swan treading through the contaminated oceans of misery, pure and untouched. The swan exists within the environment but is not effected by it. It partakes only in the nectar at the heart of the Lotus. Sattva is the goal towards purification and divinity. This Pranic method works on the subtle level of Consciousness and requires a special touch to affect tranquility and love.
Benefits of Andrea’s Sattvic Awakening Touch sequence include:
Sedates nervous tension (Grounding)
Opens cognitive cellular memory
Facilitates a meditative state
Aids in clearing the mind
Helps decision making

The touch is gentle and effective. It is a series of slow, rocking movements which soothe the client with pure nurturing. Herbal medicated oils are then poured and massaged generously into the skin, focusing on the scalp, hair, face, neck, shoulders, and feet. Gentle, continuous movement caresses the client into a sedated mode of comfort.
Andrea’s Rajasic Kinetic touch sequence is to enhance Rajas, the Guna of movement, change, passion, and internal/external activity. It is the tiger who surveys her domain for consumption. Kinetic works towards movement and transformation. Body mapping similarly is scanning the body tissue, state of mind, and aligning thought towards a spiritual purpose.
Benefits of Andrea’s Rajasic Kinetic Touch sequence includes:
Nourishes the skin
Creates spiritual rhythm
Aids in the elimination of toxins
Addresses muscular tensions and chronic pain
Improves blood circulation to the body tissue
Andrea’s Active Tamasic massage sequence uses her custom kinetic touch technique. It inspires opening, and movement towards change; to increase movement with specific Marma points which cool and calm the physical body. The massage is firm and steady, stimulating the release of tension and opening higher levels of consciousness. It inspires the release of negative habitual patterns towards an individual’s unique purpose.
*Tamas is the mode of ignorance, stagnation, darkness, and inertia. This is a condition, which congests the mind, spirit and matter. Tamas can be likened to a turtle. The outer hardened shell protects the vulnerable flesh that lives within. It is a defense mechanism. Only when the turtle feels secure will she emerge. It is this move from darkness into light, from shelter into the open, which characterizes the soul’s transformation from ignorance into knowledge. Thus the healing can begin.
