Ancient Ayurvedic texts have long recognized the importance of touch for wellbeing. Abhyanga is a luxurious massage using warm Ayurvedic oil and long fluid strokes to calm the body and mind.
"Sneha", the Sanskrit word for warm oil can be translated as both "oil" and "love". So in Ayurveda, there is an inherent connection between enveloping the body in oil and in love, providing nurturing, grounding, and compassion.
Other benefits to receiving an Abhyanga massage are: improves circlulation, increases lymphatic flow (aiding in detoxification) and rejuvenates.
So if you are feeling overworked, anxious, stressed, dry, or the winter is getting you down, give this massage a try!

"I had just given birth when I went to Ivy to receive my first Abhyanga massage. It was definitely an amazing experience. Ivy made me feel completely comfortable in my post-birth skin. The massage was therapeutic and relaxing and allowed me to reflect on the journey that I had just taken. The experience also re-centered my focus and allowed me to gather up my strength to stay on newborn mama duty. I would definitely recommend this. You are in good hands with Ivy!" -Marisa
