Dáta snéhan


Dhata Snehan is one of the therapeutic techniques of traditional Ayurveda that works on shortened and stiff muscles, tendons and fascia. This method aims to relieve tension, dissolve stiffness and eliminate pain, but also leads to increased mobility of the spine and joints.

How does therapy work?

Snehan data is performed on a massage table using warm oil and heated stones. In addition to massage strokes, it involves stretching and practicing yoga postures known as asanas. The intensity of the massage is always individually adjusted according to the client's agreement, and can be either very intense or very gentle. It is common to massage certain parts of the body such as the neck, shoulders, upper limbs, hips, lower limbs, back, head and face. It is most often done in various combinations that are discussed in advance during the consultation. Other gentle and relaxing techniques are also used to achieve the optimum effect of the Dhata Snehan massage.
