Abhyanga is a traditional ayurvedic healing massage.
Here’s what you do: massage your entire body with oil, essentially anointing yourself with love.
Use an organic sesame oil like this one.
You’re gonna use a lot of it. Like, a quarter cup.
Stand on an old towel.
Start on your extremities and massage in toward your heart.
Get all between your fingers and toes and cracks.
Get all up in your own business.
Skip the bottom of your feet. Too slippery!
This should take about 20 minutes.
Now you’ve got some options.
Go jump in the ocean, a bath, or a shower.
Scrub! Clean! Use soap! Use a washcloth!
Spend the rest of your hour petting yourself.
Here are the benefits to abhyanga massage.
