One of the daily activities to balance your mind & body

The Benefits of Massage
A daily self-massage (known as an Abhyanga) with herbalized massage oil is one of the most important tools to activate your inner pharmacy and slow the aging process. Demonstrated to increase circulation, support immune function, and improve muscle tone, a daily self Abhyanga is recommended to achieve perfect health and balance.
How to perform a self-Abhyanga
  1. Start by pouring a small amount of oil into the palms of your hands.
  2. Using your fingertips, vigorously massage your head and scalp.
  3. Using an open hand to create friction, massage both the front and back of the neck.
  4. When massaging the arms and legs, use a back-and-forth motion over your long bones and a circular motion over your joints. Be sure to massage your fingers and toes.
  5. When massaging your chest and stomach, use a gentle circular motion.
  6. After massaging your legs, spend extra time on your feet. Using the open part of your hand, massage vigorously back and forth over the soles of the feet.
  7. Wash with warm, not hot water using Adara Hair & Body Wash.
