Ayurvedic Self Massage

Ayurvedic Self Massage

Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic self-massage technique that involves the application of warm oil to the body. Here are the steps for performing abhyanga with coconut oil:

1. Prepare the Coconut Oil: Warm a tablespoon of Conscious Coconut Oil slightly to a comfortable temperature. You can do this by placing the coconut oil container in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes.

2. Set the Mood: Find a quiet, comfortable space where you can relax and perform your massage without interruption. You may want to dim the lights and play soft, soothing music if desired.

3. Undress: Remove your clothing and any jewelry or accessories that might interfere with the massage.

4. Begin with the Scalp: Take a small amount of coconut oil in your hands and apply it to your scalp. Use your fingertips to massage the oil into your scalp using gentle circular motions. Continue massaging for a few minutes, paying attention to any areas of tension or tightness.

5. Move to the Face: Apply a small amount of oil to your face and massage it in using gentle upward strokes. Be sure to avoid getting oil in your eyes.

6. Massage the Body: Take more coconut oil and apply it generously to the rest of your body, starting with the neck and shoulders. Use long, sweeping strokes on the limbs and circular motions on the joints. Pay special attention to areas of tension or stiffness.

7. Focus on the Joints: Spend extra time massaging the joints, such as the elbows, knees, and ankles. Use small, circular motions to help release tension and improve flexibility.

8. Massage the Abdomen: Massage your abdomen in a clockwise direction, following the path of your digestive system. This can help improve digestion and relieve any discomfort.

9. Finish with the Feet: Finally, massage your feet with coconut oil, paying attention to the soles and heels. Use firm pressure to massage away any tension, and don't forget to massage between the toes.

10. Rest and Relax: After you've completed your abhyanga massage, take a few moments to rest and relax. You can wrap yourself in a warm towel or robe to help the oil penetrate your skin. Allow the oil to soak in for at least 10-15 minutes before showering or bathing.

Performing abhyanga with coconut oil can be a deeply nourishing and relaxing experience for both the body and mind. It's a wonderful way to promote self-care and overall well-being.
