Techniques used in Ayurvedic Holistic Massage
In the Eastern & Western systems of massage, pressing, rubbing, kneading and squeezing are the same. The sequence of strokes and body parts emphasised in Ayurvedic massage differ. Ayurveda places more emphasis on head and face massage. Similarly massage of the toes and soles of the feet also plays a more prominent role. An Ayurvedic massage is sometimes more brisk and invigorating and can also be deeper and more relaxing if that is needed. It also very much empahsises the application of pressure to marmas (acupressure points) of which there are 107 points in the body.
Several types of oil may be used for massage in Ayurveda bearing in mind the individual constitution of the person. As an Ayurvedic Massage Practitioner, I have been trained to determine by means of pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis and a few simple questions, which oil would most help to balance your own particular individual constitution. Some of the most common oils used in Ayurveda are usually cold pressed organic vegetable seed oils such as mustard, sesame, olive, almond or cocomut oil.
Ayurvedic Head and Face Massage
A head massage is in fact a massage of the entire body. Since the head is the centre of the nervous system, a head massage clams the entire nervous system. There are thirty seven of the 107 marma points (acupressure points) located in the head, face and neck making it an essential part of Ayurvedic massage. its' benefits include:-
- Increasing the supply of fresh oxygen and glucose to the brain.
- Relaxes the nervous system and eliminates the fatique caused by mental stress and strain.
- Improves circulation of that life giving sap, the cerebrospinal fluid.
- Increases the secretion of growth hormones and enzymes necessary for the growth and development of brain cells.
- Increases the level of pranic energy inside the brain.
- cures dryness of scalp
- Retards hair loss, premature balding and greying of the hair.
