What is Ayurvedic massage and what is it for?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of traditional medicine, which is more than 5000 years old. The basis of its philosophy is the inner harmony of a man, as well as the ability to find a balance between the body, mind and the world that surrounds us.

What is Ayurvedic massage

Ayurvedic massage is a technique of deep working out of the soft tissues of the body and muscles, which is based on the concept of natural healing both on the physical and spiritual levels. Ayurveda massage is able to eliminate energy blocks, relieve headaches and back pain, and also fill the chakras.

Ayurvedic massage technique

Ayurvedic massage is mainly performed using a large number of oils and herbs that are individually selected for you. Such an oil massage allows you to increase the energy flow, remove toxins and harmful substances from the body, as well as completely relax your body and clear your mind.

And most importantly — Ayurvedic massage must be done on an empty stomach. Therefore, it is best to do it in the morning or evening.

Shirodhara is performed by spilling oil on the forehead and gentle massage movements. Such a head massage helps to calm the nervous system, improve memory, sleep, get rid of headaches, nervousness and anxiety. It is best to combine Shirodhara massage with Abhyanga.
