Ayurveda can be defined as a system, which uses the inherent principles of nature, to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.
Ayurvedic massage combines the ancient Sri Lankan medical practices outlined in Ayurveda with the family practice of giving and receiving massages on a regular basis. Ayurvedic massage uses a liberal amount of oils (so as to not aggravate vata by irritating dry skin), a vigorous touch, and special attention to special pressure points, referred to as “marmas,” which are intended to stimulate certain organ systems.
“The great thing about Ayurveda is that its treatments always yield side benefits, not side effects.”
