Do you know what an ayurvedic massage is? Surely you have heard of these types of massages but you still do not know well what they are or what benefits can lead to health.
An Ayurvedic massage is performed with hot essential oils following the guidelines set by the Ayurveda school. Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional medicine from India. The term “Ayurveda” means “the science of life” and is a holistic system that seeks the general welfare of the person based on their dosha or constitution (vata, pitta or kapha) and their vikritis (imbalances in the dosha that produce the Illness) to adapt both the essential oils used and the pace and strength of the particular massage.
Ayurvedic medicine takes into account the interaction and balance of mind, body and spirit from the energy of the individual and seeks, through massages, to help you feel good globally.
An Ayurvedic massage is especially useful not only to relieve specific pain but also as preventive medicine, as it increases circulation, stimulates and strengthens the lymphatic system, and opens the flow of life force with the aim of cleaning and revitalizing the body. In addition, the essential oils that are used in Ayurvedic massages are very nutritious and detoxifying for the skin, helping to prevent aging and leaving it soft and shiny. On the other hand, Ayurvedic massage provides us with other benefits such as the symptomatic relief of stress and the generation of positive emotions to make us feel better both physically and mentally.
