    Watch Ayurveda’s Secret to Longevity Unfold Step by Step…

    If you feel fatigued, low on energy, suffer from dry, lacklustre skin, inflexibility, joint pain or go through weakness, there's something that can be like 'a blessing from above' but you probably never thought could help you in this way! 

    Even if you're trying to lose weight or are just looking for more strength and energy to go about your business every day, go through insomnia or, like a lot of us, are constantly exposed to some sort of mental or physical stress - Abhyanga is the ancient practice that'll seem to have come alive just for you!

    Though an ancient tradition, ABHYANGHA is more relevant than ever to cope with modern stresses… 

    What is Abhyanga?  

    A special daily ritual recommended by Ayurveda to empower the body’s healing system and to promote overall wellness, Abhyanga, most simply understood, is a full body massage with oil.  

    Ayurveda believes that growing up is a process of dehydration - as we age, not only do we need to keep our diet enriched with hydrating elements, we also need to practice daily oleation to maintain optimum levels of unctuousness in the body, support proper circulation and keep the lymph moving.  

    The same Abhyanga can become even more effective when Ayurvedic secrets from the Himalayan traditions are added - the results are dramatic!  


    • have a Vata disorder (that’s whenever we are cold, dry, tired, anxious, or just plain exhausted) 
    • are too thirsty 
    • have dry skin, hair and nails 
    • feel physically weak
    • have joint pain 
    • suffer from insomnia and some kind of mental stress or imbalance 
    • prior to carrying out the detox therapy of ‘PANCHAKARMA’; the five deeply cleansing actions administered by an Ayurvedic Physician.  

    But is there a technique to it?

    Of course there is, as prescribed in the texts, as practiced for centuries and as explored by practitioners -

    However, today, we bring to you a very special, advanced version of Abhyanga that not only follows the protocols from the ancient Ayurvedic texts but also includes secrets from the Himalayan Ayurvedic tradition: Himalayan Mountain Abhyanga

    What is Himalayan Mountain Abhyanga?

    A signature technique of world renowned practitioners Robert and Melanie Sachs, the pioneers of the American spa industry in America, this is a very unique and effective, immediate-results oriented protocol. 

    It is called ‘Himalayan Mountain Abhyanga’ because it integrates various styles of Abhyanga they have learned from both Indian and Tibetan practitioners of Ayurveda

    Rich with deep Indian and Tibetan insights into techniques, pressure points, oils to use, selection of oil, deciding the degree of pressure, specific direction of movements along with little things that nobody talks about including managing the sheets, plumbing and cleaning after massage, massaging at home and so much more, this course is the only course of its kind - giving you top quality information in about 6.4 hours of videos!
