Ayurveda teaches us that everyone needs massage on a regular basis. In just the same way as a machine needs lubrication, the body loves to be oiled to protect it against the ravages of life and time. Regular Abhyanga massage promotes healing and restoration by eliminating toxins from the body so that rejuvenating energies of the body may flow more freely. The abhyanga session in this DVD has a rhythm and flow that covers the entire body. Next, you’ll learn about Marma Point Massage.
Marmas are the sites on the physical body that interface with the spirit, or vital force. Marmas act like switches that can be used to turn up or down, on or off, the energy flow at various places. You may want to offer this subtle yet impactful massage to remove blockages, increase energy or circulation, or tap deeper hidden reserves of vitality and connect with greater forces of life and nature. This session will stimulate the subtle nerves (nadis) and energy centers (chakras) of the body and mind.
Following these 2 massage sequences, you can observe a Shirodhara treatment. Shirodhara is administered by gently and methodically pouring warm herbalized oil over the forehead, synchronizing brain waves and profoundly coordinating and calming the mind, body, and spirit. The Shiro-Abhyanga-Nasya which builds upon the first Shirodhara session, is a combination of a deep head/neck/shoulder massage and facial lymphatic massage, followed by deep inhalation of therapeutic aromatic steam.
This popular treatment is an invaluable tool balancing most head, neck and respiratory disorders. The principles of harmony and balance underlying Ayurveda massage may be incorporated into your daily life or may be used to deepen a professional practice.
