Many types of massage oils are used warm during the ayurvedic massage, containing extracts of ayurvedic herbs which are combined to suit the constitution of the patient. The style and intensity of the massage depends on individual needs in terms of balance and well-being.
The warmth of the oil has a relaxing effect and transmits security to the patient and the massage is usually described as a relaxing, harmonising and energising experience.
After the treatment it is recommended to leave the oil on the skin for a few hours, so that the beneficial properties of Ayurvedic herbal extracts are absorbed and brought into circulation in the body.
Ayurveda originated from South India more than 5,000 years ago and is one of the oldest and most extensive healing disciplines. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally means “knowledge of life”.
Inherent to the Ayurvedic principles is the concept that – with the appropriate knowledge – every individual is able to take charge of his/her life and healing and that following an appropriate lifestyle one can prevent unnecessary suffering and live a long and healthy life. It is a science that provides both curative and preventive measures for a physical, mental and spiritual balance and wellbeing.
Also known as the mother of medical disciplines, Ayurveda has been developed and refined over the last 5000 years. Preferring to focus on the kind of person who has the tendency towards a certain type of disease, rather than the disease itself, Ayurveda is a healing system oriented towards the patient.
It is a discipline that considers massage as the center of mental and physical well-being. According to Ayurveda, every person is a harmonious unity of body, spirit and soul. This harmony is the basis of the natural beauty, health and vitality of the person.
The aim of Ayurveda is to maintain or re-establish this harmony, so as to establish a healthy physical and mental balance.
