Abhyanga - Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic oil Massage therapy is a holistic healing and complementary medicine program and NOT a conventional massage. It is to form part of a more comprehensive therapy plan, a qualified Ayurveda specialist will assess your body’s doshic balance before embarking on any massage therapy to ensure you receive the most suitable form of Ayurvedic massage for your needs. After investigating the state of your tissues, your body systems, previous conditions and mental disposition, the ideal type of Ayurvedic massage for your needs will be recommended and then tailored to suit. Specific strokes, oils, marmas and chakras, music, affirmations and guided visualizations are also formulated to enhance the therapeutic impact of your Ayurvedic massage. Whether the Ayurvedic massage forms part of a more comprehensive Ayurveda programme or is merely undertaken for the sheer pleasure of a deeply relaxing.

During an Ayurvedic massage a subtle transfer of electromagnetic energy takes place between the therapist and the client so it is important to trust and feel ‘good vibes’ with your therapist.

A variety of Ayurvedic techniques is applied to work along the energy channels of your body in a synchronized manner to restore the flow of vital energy, Prana, where it has become blocked. Lymphatic stimulation with ayurvedic herbal oils help squeeze out toxic accumulation from channels. Hence it is detoxifying massage. Warm oil is the best remedy for Vata which is governing energy for healthy body and mind.

The massage lasts for 60 minutes, and it can be given on a massage table, or a sitting bench.

The origins...

The origins of Ayurveda have been traced back to around 5,000 BCE, when they originated as an oral tradition. Some of the concepts of Ayurveda have existed since the times of Indus Valley Civilization. It is one of Ancient India’s best-kept secrets. The first recorded forms of Ayurveda as medical texts evolved from the Vedas. Ayurveda is a discipline of the upaveda or "auxiliary knowledge" in Vedic tradition. The origins of Ayurveda are also found in Atharvaveda. which contains 114 hymns and incantations described as magical cures for disease.

The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians. In Sushruta Samhita, Sushruta wrote that Dhanvantari, Hindu god of Ayurveda, incarnated himself as a king of Varanasi and taught medicine to a group of physicians, including Sushruta. Ayurveda therapies have varied and evolved over more than two millennia. Therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances (perhaps under the influence of early Indian alchemy or rasa shastra).
