Abhyanga is a snehan (स्नेहन) treatment, an ancient Sanskrit word meaning gentle and loving. This is exactly how we deliver the abundant oil to the skin in order to loosen the toxins trapped in its structure, the substance trapped there undigested during cellular metabolism, which Ayurveda calls ama. During the treatment, ama, which has blocking, clogging, covering, blocking properties for the body, is directed towards the excretory organs. At the end of the treatment, the herbal steam cabin (swedana) therapy ensures the liquefaction of the ama and thus its final removal from the body. Used as a cure, it is an introductory (purva karma) part of the great cleansing ritual, which Ayurveda calls pancha karma, five actions.

In our case, this treatment is usually carried out with cold-pressed vegetable oils, which are 100% natural, free from artificial dyes, artificial fragrances, additives, and parabens. No animal experiments were performed during their production. Examples include sesame, almond, coconut, mustard seed and pumpkin seed oils. The choice of material is always justified by the existing complaints, so we like it if we can inform you in a few words about your needs at the time of check-in, which could be, for example, stress relief, pain relief, insomnia, treatment of arthritis with medicinal herbs, bone growth on the knee (for example), nervous system diseases or nervous system immaturity, circulatory disorders occurrence of memory loss . Here I would like to draw your attention to the pleasant side effects, which are: the skin becomes elastic and radiant , the wrinkles caused by the abundant use of oil are replenished , the body becomes youthful, the libido increases . In necessary cases, we also use classic Ayurvedic oils, so-called tailams, which are made today based on the same ancient recipes as they were thousands of years ago. Examples are Dhanwantaram tailam, Mahanarayana tailam, Karpooradi tailam.

This massage begins with abundant warm oil dripping on the scalp and continues with smoothing, rubbing and light tapping movements. The sensation of warm oil dripping on the head and skin results in an extremely soothing, meditative state. It significantly calms the nervous system. When we do this, the guest, even if he had been talking up to that point, becomes silent without exception and obviously wants to concentrate only on his body sensations. This part is done while sitting, wrapped in a fragrant, snow-white warm towel. After that, we perform further movements on a heated massage bed. The entire therapy is characterized by the abundant use of oil, in a ritualistic hand gesture from the therapist’s palm to the guest’s body. This is important because the operator and the person being treated and the oil used are aligned on the subtle physical level as well. During the rite, depending on the sensitivity of the guest (we always find out about this in advance), we use incense, mostly sandalwood, but myrrh and frankincense can also be recommended. If you don’t like smoke, this is not a problem either, because in this case, we use a candle to release essential oils into the air, helping to achieve the ultimate goal of the treatment. During the therapy, soft music is played, which is also carefully selected music that helps the harmony of body, soul and mind. We primarily recommend healing raga and gandharva veda music suitable for the time of day, but we also try to meet individual needs. We refrain from bright lights until the last minute of the steam treatment, unless part of the therapy is to strengthen the eyes and for this we keep a ghee lamp in focus.

Shirodhara is a unique form of ancient medical treatment in Ayurveda, the purpose of which is to silently drip oil or decoction on the forehead. From a specified height, for a specified period of time, continuously and evenly, with a rhythm that allows the oil or potion to pass through the scalp into the hair and the region below.

The guest rests in a lying position on the heated treatment table. His eyes and ears are covered with cotton to help him block out the environment as the dhara pot oscillates slowly over his forehead. The oil or concoction is directed by the practitioner to flow rhythmically over the forehead, trickling over the hairy scalp, invigorating your mind and body, resulting in a deep state of relaxation. At the end, the guest feels as if he had bought himself a ticket to a movie that he could watch in deep silence, without getting involved. The procedure is carried out for at least 45 minutes.

Among the benefits of shirodhara is a deep inner peace and relaxed state, which is immediately noticeable. The brain, and through it the nervous system, benefits from a deep rest. The functioning of the five senses improves , helps to say goodbye to insomnia , reduces anxiety-type imbalances , depression , hair loss , and fatigue . It best counters vata (air, ether) type of nervous system complaints and makes the mind calm and focused . It helps in case of epilepsy if the guest takes the treatment according to a carefully planned plan.

I would like to single out insomnia from those listed. A significant problem for today’s society is that the stress accumulated during the day could not be relieved during the day, so your body and mind slowly relax in the evening and you cannot fall asleep until midnight or even two in the morning. According to Ayurveda, the human body is in the pitta (fire element) period from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., which means that when the body sleeps, the body transforms. It digests the stresses accumulated during the day and places the imprints in the appropriate drawer. It also removes the slag from the stomach and intestines. It also carries out its deep regeneration processes at this time. If someone does not sleep regularly during this period, then the pitta dosa (fire element), which rules the day at this time, lights a kind of fire in his mind and even more so he cannot fall asleep. If this process persists, a person’s life will be shortened by years, since his body cannot rest and regenerate in the time it provides, so it is extremely important: eat when you are hungry, drink when you are thirsty, go to the toilet when you are irritated and go to bed at nine o’clock in the evening to Go to bed by 10 o’clock to give your body the basic support it needs to serve you in a more fulfilling life.
