Traditional Ayurveda encourages vitality, health and longevity. The actual practice is largely based on prevention, rather than cure. At the core of prevention is the everyday custom of personal health care – a type of regular health maintenance. Fundamental to this is daily self massage, known as abhyanga. Massage with Ayurvedic oils can relieve your mind and body from many kinds of stresses and toxic build ups. Regular self massage rejuvenates your entire physical structure and promotes mental relaxation. Ancient Indian texts written 5000 years ago state that ‘a person with a view to preserving and promoting positive health should use massage therapy every day’.

Daily self massage with Ayurvedic oils is a positive way of unlocking the body’s innate healing ability, revitalising the body and mind and empowers you to maintain your body’s optimum health.

The benefits of self-massage (abhyanga)
  • Balance the endocrine system 
  • Calm the nervous system 
  • Rejuvenate the skin 
  • Tone muscles 
  • Eliminate impurities 
  • Lubricate the joints 
  • Increase mental alertness 
  • Promote youthfulness 
  • Stimulate internal organs 
  • Longevity
Ayurvedic massage has become a lifestyle for the people of India . It is a natural form of exercise that offers a balance between the mind and the body. It is believed in the Ayurveda system that each human being is composed of a Dosha. According to doctrines, a dosha is a combination of the 5 different elements; ether, wind, fire, water and earth. Doshas, according to Ayurveda, need to remain balanced in a person. An imbalance will manifest a negative or undesirable condition. Using Ayurvedic oils in massage is a potent contributor at maintaining harmony & balance. Due to the extremely small size of the oil molecule, Ayurveda oils penetrate the skin easily and transport the healing properties of nature, directly to the cells in the body.

The best time for massage
Ayurvedic massage is traditionally performed in the morning, before your bath or shower, to facilitate the release of toxins that may have accumulated during the previous night. However, at the end of the day a mini massage before your shower and bed or simply massaging the soles of your feet with Ksheerabala oil will certainly help those with insomnia and promote restful sleep. So make sure that you participate in this type of Ayurvedic healing as often as you can, so you can enjoy all the benefits, everyday.
