Our Procedure

Use warm massage oil comfortably which should be stored in a plastic flip-top and warm it by holding the container under running hot water for a few minutes. Take the oil and apply it gently on your entire body. Leave it like that for 4-5 minutes so that some of the oil be absorbed by your skin. You have to massage your whole body by using your whole hand by applying even pressure i.e. palm and fingers. When you massage your heart or abdomen, a light pressure should be applied. Use more oil especially on the nerve ending and spend more time on this. Your head and joints should be given circular motion massage and for arms and legs straight strokes should be given. Once you are done relax for 10-15 minutes. During that time, you can relax or rest or shave or cut nails and get ready for the day. The longer the oil is on your body, it penetrates to a larger extent. It should be followed by a warm bath or shower. If you canít do it daily then at least 3-4 times a week you should do it and you will feel the difference for yourself.
