An Ayurvedic massage is performed with warm essential oils. Ayurvedic medicine is an Indian traditional medicine. The term “Ayurveda” means “science of life” and it is a holistic system that seeks the well being of the person based on their dosha or constitution (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) and their vikritis (dosha imbalances that cause disease) to adapt both the essential oils that are used as the pace and strength of the specific message.
An ayurvedic massage serves not only to relieve pain but especially as preventive medicine increasing circulation, stimulating and strengthening the lymphatic system, and opening the flow of life force in order to cleanse and revitalize the body. In addition, essential oils used in Ayurvedic massages are very nourishing and detoxifying, helping to prevent aging and leaving the skin soft and shiny. On the other hand, Ayurvedic massages provide other benefits as symptomatic relief of stress and the generation of positive emotions to make us feel better both physically and mentally.
