Quite sometime back, about 2 weeks ago, i purchased a deal from Orangedeal for a Relaxing & Rejuvenating Ayurvedic Oil Massage at Samkkya at Bangsar. So taking advantage of the long week break, i decided to make an appointment for my parents and myself to try out the Ayurvedic Oil Massage and i must tell you that it was the best massage I’ve ever had and it was worth every amount that i paid for it.
Before going further on how was the experience. Let me just give you an explanation on the Ayurvedic Oil Massage which i managed to extract from their website. Abhyanga Ayurvedic Oil Massage includes a full body massage using Ayurvedic oil chosen according to the body type of a person. Abhyanga enhances immunity, increases circulation and creates deep relaxation in the body. As am also someone who has migraine very often, the personnel there introduced me to Shirodhara (mind relaxation therapy), which i used my cash voucher to redeem it. Shirodhara is a procedure of rhythmically pouring Ayurvedic oil over the forehead hence called the third eye massage which completely relaxes the nervous system and calms the mind.
Now, how was the experience? Only one word to overall conclude it, ‘Great’!. Samkkya’s therapists that attended to us was all from Kerala and with good amount of experience in this Ayurvedic area and the ayurvedic centre itself was so pleasing and has a very classic setting to it. Now on the therapy, the Oil Massage really helped to calm down all those aching nerves and it surely did relax my whole body. Each stroke by the therapists really did provide great healing. Now on the Shirodhara (mind relaxation therapy). I was definitely curious on this one. Of course i was wondering how will they pour the huge amount of oil on my forehead and how will it benefit me. The therapy was so relaxing with the ayurvedic oil being poured rhythmically on my forehead and before i could even know it, i was actually half asleep. Gosh, that was really relaxing for a person who’s just to busy at work most of the time. Ooo yea, after our close to 2 hours therapy, we were also served with hot ginger tea to seal the whole therapy :-)
I will surely return to this place once again and from the feedback from my parents, they will also return back to Samkkya soon as they were really happy with the services provided and mostly importantly on the therapy itself. To you readers out there, i personally think that you should at least make a trip once to Samkkya as you would surely love the therapy there as is it surely worth it.
