Hailing from the ancient India more than 5000 years ago, Ayurvedic massage is a holistic method of healing and reviving the body. It makes you feel in harmony with the universe and gain a new attitude towards life. The massage is performed with herb-infused oils, chosen according to your body type that have a distinctive smell and supplies proper circulation, which helps your body grow and renew.
Kerala’s composed climate, moisture in the air, loads of forests with a plethora of medicinal herbs makes it an ideal place for Ayurvedic massages. The massages are given using hands and feet and focuses on tapping, squeezing, kneading the “marma points???, which are like the pressure points in reflexology, acupuncture and acupressure.
An authentic Ayurvedic massage that includes Shirodhara ejects toxins and provides deep relaxation to the body. Shirodhara involves a continuous stream of oil that is dripped gently on your forehead helping your mind to relax by removing past tensions and emotional problems.
The full body massage begins soft as you are soaked in oil and the therapist begins to work your body, rubbing out aches, pains, and bad karma from the tips of your hands and feet. The massage, when done by two therapists, has a better healing effect on you. You can also partake in a bit unusual and special type of massage that uses ropes to suspend the masseur as he uses his feet to massage you.
Ayurvedic massage, which has become Kerala’s lifestyle, have been found to miraculously treat severe ailments like Arthritis, Slip Disc, Frozen Shoulder, Stress and Strain, etc., which allopathic medicines fail to treat.
