As a complement to yoga practices, we offer in our Center Abhyanga massage sessions. Abhyanga massage is one of the most complete massages that exists since, in addition to mobilize muscles, oxygenate and activate circulation, gentle pressures are made at the so-called Marmas points. Marma is a Sanskrit word meaning "vulnerable or sensitive". According to Ayurveda, marma points are areas of vital energy, energetic vertices, points of our anatomy that, conveniently stimulated, can serve to improve our health. Working on these marma points, the aim is to activate and unblock the prana, which is, the vital energy or flow that controls cells functioning and the different systems of our organism (respiratory, circulatory, digestive, lymphatic ...). Each marma point becomes a confluence of different types of tissues such as muscles, ligaments, veins, etc. At these points, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual elements of each person converge.
The Abhyanga massage is therefore one of the basic and indispensable techniques of Ayurvedic Medicine. Its name means "anointed in oil", since different types of oils are used according to the biotype and needs of the person who receives it. In turn, the maneuvers change according to the needs giving a massage of the type: soft and sedative; slow and heavy or vigorous and energizing.
