Ayurvedic Traditional Kerala Massage (Abhayanga) Course
Duration: 7 Days | 12 Hours

Ayurveda Kerala Massage (Abhayanga) is a very popular Ayurvedic massage therapy in which the whole body is massaged using the medicinal herbal oils. Abhayanga leads to a very relaxing experience. Ayurvedic therapy benefits the whole body physically, mentally & emotionally whilst it also balances the doshas.

The Ayurveda kerala massage course is divided into two sessions. First will be the theoretical session in which you will understand the basic principles of Ayurveda along with the history of Ayurveda. Knowledge of body types (Tridosha) according to Ayurveda, the seven elements and the main herbs & herbal oils in Ayurveda is also imparted to the students.

The second session is totally based on practise in which a practical demo of Abhayanga is given along with an experience of one-hour Ayurveda Abhayanga massage.

This program is a perfect rejuvenation and educational package for the candidates. In which we at Haritha provide in-depth knowledge of the Ayurvedic oils to be used, different marma points(accupressure points) and the Abhayanga massage would be done and various other important principles of ayurveda massage would be explained to the students.
