Abhyanga refers to a type oil massage that is part of Ayurvedic medicine. You warm the oil and massage it all over your body. This massage focuses more on the skin than deep muscle massaging.
Massage has been used for thousands of years. You can choose from over 80 massage therapies that offer a variety of pressures, movements and techniques. All of these involve manipulating soft tissues and muscles with your hands and fingers. Sometimes even forearms and elbows are used.
You can have a sports massage while clothed or naked. If you prefer to wear clothing, make sure it’s thin, loose, and allows the therapist access to your muscles. Loose shorts and a tank top are options.
