Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic Massage is an ancient Indian remedy, so popular that it’s still used today as a treatment for removing toxins from the body.

What is Ayurvedic Massage?

Ayurvedic Massage is an ancient Indian remedy used over the centuries to break down and remove toxins from the body. The toxins (called Amas) are the particles of putrefied food that have become grease forms (called Doshas) but have not been expelled naturally from the body. It’s believed that these toxins accumulate over a lengthy period in the body due to today’s modern day life-style and eating habits.

Since ancient times, people have sought out Ayurvedic massage to prevent build-ups of these undesirable toxins. This massage is probably best suited to those seeking an Ayurveda lifestyle, or want to feel cleansed of toxins.

What should I expect during the massage?

Your session starts by undressing and taking a hot shower. The belief is that the shower helps soften and loosen the body toxins and prepares the body for the actual massage.

Next, warm oil is applied and massaged into the bare skin. It is believed this oil absorbs into the body to help with detoxification. The oil massage lasts for an hour during which no conversation or music is allowed. Silence is maintained, to allow you to take in the full spiritual experience and benefit of Ayurvedic massage.

After the massage, you have a steam bath and then return to the massage bed one last time where the therapist will cover your back in an herbal paste. This paste is left to dry, after which you shower a final time before leaving the salon.

What are the benefits and side effects?

The main benefit of Ayurvedic massage is to remove the body’s toxins. This is believed to lead to a better overall wellbeing, both spiritually and physically.

There are no major side effects to Ayurvedic massage. Like other massage types, some people may feel weak after a massage. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity for at least a few hours post-massage.
