Ayurveda is an ancient, holistic medical system based on the science (Veda) of Life (Ayu). It gives us tools and strategies of living in harmony with the nature around us as well as understanding the individual nature of our own body and mind. Acknowledging and understanding our own make-up and learning to live in accordance with it is the basis of all physical and mental health.
The word for “oil” in Sanskrit is the same word as for “motherly love”. Ayurvedic massage works on many levels: Through meditative touch, the therapist can transfer positive energy into the clients body. Specific oils are worked deeply into the skin, so they become nourishment for the nervous system. Through specific Marma points in the body, a deep healing is stimulated.
