Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM)

Inspired by the Indian traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage therapy (AYM) combines deep tissue massage with asanas yoga-based stretches
It should be emphasised that Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a very different treatment from other traditional Ayurvedic massages and care. The central part of the AYM treatment is linked to yogasana therapy with series of passive and assisted yoga stretches. Moreover, unlike Abhyangam massage, only a small amount of massage oil is applied, which is further mixed with a genius exfoliating powder, during the slow and deep massage movements given with hands and feet: Ayurvedic Yoga Massage vs traditional Abhyangam & Ayurveda massages
