What is an Ayurvedic massage?

‘Ayurveda’ translates to the ‘Science of Life. It is one of the oldest medical traditions in the world and has roots in the ancient Vedic culture of India. Ayurveda believes in healing the natural way and focuses on:

  • Prevention of disorders or ailments
  • Treating disorders or ailments and
  • Rejuvenation to support a disorder-free life span

Respecting the body’s inherent wisdom and capability of self-healing, an Ayurvedic massage not only prepares it for a deep detox but also addresses various disorders, including those of the mind. Ayurvedic treatments, including massage, involve safe and natural medicated herbs and oils. An ayurvedic massage aims not just at relieving pain or discomfort but also serves the preventive and curative aspects of holistic healthcare. Once cured, it encourages and facilitates the body into sustaining good health. Alongside, it helps improve circulation of blood with its stimulating patterns of motion and strengthens the system. It assists in lymphatic drainage too.
