To begin the therapeutic Indian massage, therapists apply a blend of Ayurvedic herbs to the back to help relax muscles and reduce pain and inflammation. They cover this mixture with a muslin cloth and a heating pad to encourage absorption before massaging the arms, legs, and buttocks with long, flowing strokes. Finally, the heating pad and muslin cloth are removed and deep strokes target pain, stiffness, and inflammation in the back.
The oatmeal body massage blends Ayurvedic herbs—including mint, neem, and basil—with oatmeal, sour cream, and honey to form a smooth paste. This paste is gently warmed and then massaged over the full body to exfoliate, detoxify, and moisturize skin.<p>

Anoo's Herbal Day Spa
Ani Miryala started learning ancient-Indian skincare techniques at an age when most people think "acne" is the misspelling of a Road-Runner plot. Surrounded by uncles who were practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine, Miryala immersed herself in the noninvasive organic methods taught at the family beauty school, eventually opening a spa with her three sisters. As Kate Hamilton of Skin Inc. magazine reported in 2008, Miryala now owns one of the largest female-operated companies in southern India and has brought time-honored Indian traditions to the United States at Anoo's Herbal Day Spa and a dozen other locations worldwide.
