Best Ayurvedic massage is offered at Ayurvedic massage centre (Ojus Health) in Melbourne. Oil is systematically worked all over the body and into the skin and is absorbed through the pores. Ayurvedic massage (Abhyangam) is special massage technique to stimulate and release toxins from the body by lymphatic drainage. It also helps to absorb the oil into the internal tissue of the body thus softening and rejuvenating all the muscles and joints.

These toxins (unabsorbed food particles) are then removed from body by the herbal purgation. At Ojus Health Ayurveda centre three sessions of Abhyangham and herbal steam are included in the Panchkarma detox program.
