Ayurvedic wellness massage
Ayurvedic massage abhyanga is a thousand-year-old traditional practice. It is a genuine holistic well-being treatment which acts deep down on the physical, mental and emotional spheres. It is practiced in the traditional Indian clinics as part of ayurvedic cures -such as the famous panchakarma– which aim is to eliminate the excess doshas -life forces- and ama – the toxins- from the body. The whole body is massaged from head to toes with warm oil, specifically chosen according to the prakruti, or body constitution. The warm oil penetrates the tissues in depth with kneading movements, long effleurage strokes, acupressure on marma points -sensitive connecting spots of muscles, ligaments, tendons, veins, joints, bones- the life force prana is stimulated, the flow of the bodily fluids is activated and the toxins are led towards the organs responsible for elimination.
