WHAT IS AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5000 years. ‘Ayurveda’ is a Sanskrit word that literally translated means ‘science of life’ of ‘practices of longevity’.  Ayurveda is the system of health care conceived and developed by the seers (rishis) and natural scientists through centuries observations, experiments, discussions and meditations.

Ayurveda is not a treatment, it is a way of life

Life, according to Ayurveda, is not limited to body or physical symptoms, but also gives a comprehensive knowledge about spiritual, mental and social health.
Among all the medications available in Ayurveda, ayurvedic massage is known all over the world. Western countries are increasingly adopting this for rejuvenation of body, mind and  soul. It helps to improve circulation and assists the body in quickly removing toxins and metabolic wastes.

Ayurvedic massage treatment has originated in the Vedic Period developed through meditative minds of sages and matured into a perfect system of treatment. Kerala Ayurvedic Massage is a total approach to preserve and maintain health through the self-healing mechanism of the body, involves the movement of energies within the body. This is done by applying pressure through the muscles, nerves and marmas with the help of specially formulated ayurvedic medicated herbal oils. Ayurvedic massage uses medicated massage oil and techniques that are chosen to suit your body type and conditions to cleanse and lubricate body tissues to remove toxins from the system.
Massage can also be done with the use of herbal powders, pastes, simple friction etc.

The intention is to loosen Ama - toxic residue that accumulates due to the stress of everyday living, improper diet, negative emotions, and so on. Ama gets stuck in our tissues. It gets stuck everywhere - in muscles, connective tissue, organs, fluids. According to ayurvedic philosophy, Ama is fat soluble. This is why ayurvedic massages are so oily.

A proper ayurvedic massage with oil removes dirt from the skin, cleans the pores and indirectly helps the functioning of lungs, large intestine and kidneys. With massage, the blood circulation increases and this in turn helps the exfoliation of superficial dead skin cells, tones the skin and encourages its rejuvenation process. Also it improves the texture of the skin, provides a glow and softness to the skin. Ayurvedic massages have no side effects and this is the reason that beauty consultants all over the world are directing their attention to these treatments. Massage also helps the skin to maintain its elasticity and strength. Increase in blood circulation helps to accelerate the lymphatic system which absorbs and eliminates many waste products.

Each type of massage provides a benefit to a different aspect of the body.
