Traditional Ayurvedic Consultations & Oil Therapies with Mary Flinn
Ayurvedic Oil Therapies Explained
An Ayurveda Consultation includes an overview of your own personal Dosha (constitution). The consultation also includes lifestyle changes and additions such as diet, exercise, meditation, and aromatherapy.
Oil Therapies are also ways to cleanse and heal the body of toxins and stress. These therapies can be a part of your ‘Dinacharya’ or daily routine. They include: Nasya or nasal oiling, Abhyanga (self oil massage) and an Oil Therapy Basti (treatment), which we offer here at Prana Das.
Don’t Live in Discomfort!
Ayurvedic Oil Therapy can help.
An Oil therapy or Basti is a combination of warm medicated oil poured into a dough dam that surrounds the painful area, followed by massage, and heat or sudation. The treatment takes about 40 minutes.
