Ayurveda Full Body Massage
There are 4 main parts to an Ayurveda Massage. These consist of :
1.Marma Points Therapy. Marma points on the body are found in muscle, ligaments, tissue, bone and blood. There are 107. Pressure is applied on each point which in turn helps to increase circulation of energy and nutrition to the cells in the affected areas.
2.Garshana treatments consist of a dry lymphatic skin brushing with a silk glove. This "rubbing" increases heat and enhances circulation while exfoliating the skin so subsequent oil and herbal treatments can penetrate deeply into the freshly cleaned pores. This technique also produces static electricity, which alkalizes the blood and detoxifies the body. •
3.Abhyanga, the classic Ayurvedic massage, is an individually prepared herbal-oil massage designed to deeply penetrate the skin, relax the mind-body, break up impurities, and stimulate both arterial and lymphatic circulation, enhancing the delivery of nutrients to starved cells and the removal of stagnant waste.
4.Vishesh is a deep muscular Ayurvedic massage that breaks up adhesions and comp romised circulation within the muscle spindles. When certain channels are blocked, then neither awareness nor blood can access deeply seated tissues. For certain body types and imbalances, this is an essential therapeutic approach.
Altogther this full body massage is 90 minutes of pure bliss, relaxation and healing.
Valuka sweda is another component that can be added into an Ayurveda massage or used as a separated treatment. A combination of
herbs , sand and salt are used in a bolus. The bolus is heated and used on the body. Depending upon the area and need of the individual the bolus massage can be done dry or an oil application can also be employed.
