Why massage is important

Massage is highly praised in Ayurveda and is recommended daily.

Ayurveda believes that aches and pains are caused by obstruction of the flow of vayu (wind) through vayu carrying vessels or siras. Balancing circulation of vayu in the siras removes tension and reduces pain. Massage also promotes a deeper and more natural breathing pattern.

Regular massage helps to relax the muscles, nerves, bones and indeed the whole body. It helps the digestive system by maintaining proper balance and circulation.

Marma points are specific areas of the body, where the bone, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels meet. They are also considered vital energy points where prana flows through the body. Manipulation of such can help to promote healthy balance. 

Benefits

Ayurveda describes many benefits of marma massage including:

  • Alleviates old age, fatigue and excess wind. 

  • Improves eyesight

  • Strengthens the body

  • Increases longevity

  • Induces sleep & dreams

  • Strengthens the skin
