Ayurveda, the world’s most ancient healing science, employs diverse treatments to treat the root cause of various health problems. One of the core treatments used by this health system is Ayurvedic Massage. It is a holistic therapy of stroking, rubbing and kneading the body muscles using hands as tools.  



It is an effective way to provide relief from pains and ache, stimulate the circulation of body fluids, enhance beauty and revitalize the body and spirit. Body massage with herbs, ghee, milk and fruit pulp promotes equilibrium and restores symmetry. This article illuminates different aspects of ayurvedic massage. 



Benefits Of Ayurvedic Massage:


  • Ayurvedic oil massage flushes out the toxins from joints and tissues and releases them into the system. 
  • Massage also releases accumulated toxins from skin to give you healthy and supple skin. 
  • The healing process of ayurvedic massage strengthens and tones the muscles of the body.
