A hot oil massage, or Abhyanga treatment, is a part of Ayurvedic massage infused with naturally made warm herbal oils. It helps to restore balance and relax the body completely. Natural, nourishing, and rejuvenating, Abhayanga is able to calm the three doshas or ‘bioenergies’ within the body. This in turn encourages the release of toxins from deep within the tissues and GI tract so that it can be efficiently counteracted.
You will be greeted by experienced therapists at Gulshan Thai Spa. Your 60 or 90-minute Abhayanga treatment will begin with a soothing foot soak in our enchantingly warm treatment room. Then an Ayurvedic consultant will start massaging the head, shoulders, and neck.
Our trained therapists will massage your body with warm natural herbal oils. Relax and restore by gently massaging tight or swollen muscles with extreme flexibility. The treatment concludes with a specially designed refreshment where guests feel refreshed by sipping the brewed tea.
Although this massages use herbal ingredients, they are not necessarily safe for everyone. It’s not uncommon to have an adverse reaction to oils, especially if you have “sensitive” skin.
Is Hot Oil Massage Safe?
So to avoid such adverse reactions, look for 100% natural oils with no artificial ingredients at our Gulshan Thai Spa, we use 100% natural ingredients foroil massage full body, hot coconut oil body massage, and hot massage oil relaxing muscles.
Before the treatment, you can check whether the oil is safe for your body. To do a test, apply a small amount of oil (without heat) to your elbow and observe for the next 24 hours. If no rash or itching develops then it is safe for you to use. Otherwise, you have to test different oils to find the best one.
Precautions should be taken while getting hot oil massages at home as well. Check the brand of store-bought oil before using it, and read the ingredients and instructions carefully if necessary. Always stay safe.
Why is Hot Oil Body Massage so Important?
Warming up the muscles with a hot oil massage will help them relax and become more pliable. Additionally, the additional warmth aids in the release of tight tissue that may be hurting you or restricting your range of motion. It is easier for the muscles to stretch and move when they are looser due to the heat.
