Ayurveda in Melbourne brings a plethora of external treatments to the table in order to complement lifestyle recommendations and herbs to recover or maintain proper health. They have multi-faceted effects on the well-being of the individual. It is not only the specific effects but treatments of Ayurveda in Melbourne provide complete wellness and are also very relaxing. Herbalized oils which are made by processing around 10-40 and sometimes 80 herbs in coconut oil or sesame oil are used for the treatments. The oils are selected depending on a person’s health issues and body type. If you undergo 3-7 sessions of the treatment periodically or on a consecutive basis, you will start seeing long-lasting results.

You will find that most of the herbal oils contain 10 to 20 herbs, while there are some that contain 80-100, with coconut oil or sesame oil as the base. Each and every oil has its own specific benefits depending on the herbs and oils used. Massage is done by using both palms and the tips of the fingers. Abhyanga always begins from the base and heads down right towards the root of the body. Then you are told to lie down on the massage table when your stomach, soles, and back of your body will be massaged. Then, you are told to turn around when your face, foot, and the front portion of your body will be massaged. To get added benefits when you are lying down on your back, cooling cotton pads are faced on your eyes.
