The mini abhyanga is an important bridge to inculcating an Abhyanga into your Dinacharya. At Krya, we consistently extol the benefits of the Abhyanga Snana as a very important Dinacharya ( Daily Habit). All the classical Ayurvedic textbooks have clearly defined the wide range of health benefits of a regular Abhyanga-Snana.
The full Abhyanga Snana involves a vigorous head-to-toe oil self-massage followed by Snana with a herb based bath powder. And the Ayurvedic Acharyas recommend that all healthy adults can have a daily Abhyanga.
The Need for a mini abhyanga
The very thought of a Abhyanga-Snana seems extremely daunting to many of us who have a packed, hassled morning routine. A quick shower with soap and shampoo is the most that many of us can contemplate on a week-day
We have received a large number of message from our customers on how to get over the initial time and scheduling hurdles to incorporate this important habit into their routine – hence this guide which introduces the mini abhyanga.
The Krya mini abhyanga guide
A mini abhyanga should take around 10 minutes, focuses on key body parts that suffer dosha-aggravation and gives a few of the benefits of the full Abhyanga. You just need a Abhyanga skin oil and an ubtan to get started and it is recommended for all healthy adults.
We have designed this mini abhyanga as a bridge to the full , proper Ayurvedic Abhyanga Snana. It will help new comers to get started and experience some of the important health benefits and motivate them to graduate to a full Abhyanga. For the regulars, it will help you to incorporate a mini abhyanga when you have less time or when you are travelling.
The mini abhyanga is not meant to replace the full Abhyanga. You can read about the full Abhyanga here .
In this guide we have given the instructions for both men & women and the different precautions to be taken.
