Introduction to AYURVEDA & ABHYANGA Massage

Learn the Ancient Art of Abhyanga oil massage and identify your clients constitutional type based on the 3 Doshas.

Ayurveda is the ancient healing system of living life in balance. During this course you will learn the basic principles of Ayurvedic healing and philosophy. We will discuss the concept of constitutional body types based on the three doshas, and how to ascertain your clients’ imbalances and health issues based on their constitution. We will learn the Abhyanga massage, a traditional oil massage used in Ayurveda to detoxify, rejuvenate and soothe the mind and body. The Abhyanga is massage therapy which incorporates a variety of friction and warming strokes to work therapeutic oils deep into the tissues and loosen toxicity and lubricate the joints and muscle fibers. There will be ample time given to hands on practice of the Abhyanga massage and how to incorporate this therapy into your current practice.
