Ayurvedic Massage Therapy


 
 
 

Ayurvedic massage therapy from the Ayurveda TraditionWhile ayurvedic massage therapy does not generally provide a complete therapeutic cure, it does help the organism to receive nutrient material from within the body and to expel toxins.

Certain ailments related to the muscles, ligaments and nervous system can be completely healed through good ayurvedic massage therapy. In diseases caused by deranged vata, massage therapy can also be the only remedy. In diseases caused by deranged pitta and kapha, ayurvedic massage therapy compliments other healing methods.

In ayurvedic massage therapy, the practisioner mostly works with the knowledge of the marmas or indian pressure points.

Ayurvedic massage therapy is an ideal remedy for pain. The figure below show parts of the head as they relate to other body parts and/or symptoms of diseases :

Pain here indicates

A : Tension and infections of the gums and teeth.
B : Overacidity (pain of the eyeball).
C : Gastritis (pain of the eye socket).
D : Inflammation of the stomach.
E : Ulcers
F : Disorders of the intestines.
G : Disorders of the fallopian tubes.
H : Kidney disorders.
I : Disorders of urinary tract.
J : Neuralgia.
K : Formation of cataract.
L : Disorders of the brain and the spinal nerves.

Ayurvedic massage therapy on these areas can at the least help the rest of the medical treatment to succeed.

Ayurvedic massage therapy can be a real cure in case of arthritis, rheumatism, neurasthenia, high or low blood pressure, sciatica, paralysis, polio and insomnia. In all these cases, the massage practisioner should however also prescribe specific medication, changes in daily habits, excercises, etc..

In ayurvedic massage, massage tables are rarely used. Instead of using a massage table, the massage practitioners create a massage mat, usually by placing a reed mat upon an indian-style futon, a cotton mattress. The massage mat made of reeds prevents oil from dripping upon the futon below. A massage cushion is also rarely used - the head is usually not supported. Massage chairs can be used for massages given in the sitting position (shoulders, arms, haed) in case patients are not comfortable in a cross-legged sitting position on the massage bed.
