  • Supporting Supple Joints: The nourishing oils in Abhyanga extend their care to your joints, imparting lubrication and soothing discomfort.
  • Enhancing Sleep Quality: A regular Abhyanga before sleep can weave a tapestry of improved sleep quality and rejuvenating repose.

  • Devotion to Feet: Dedicate ample time to massaging your feet, as they hold the essence of balancing energy.
  • Savor the Relaxation: Following the massage, indulge in 15-20 minutes of relaxation, allowing the oil to permeate your skin and calm your nervous system.
