From Dhandvarti to sages, and then to physicians – Ayurveda is a type of ancient medical knowledge initially based in the Indian Subcontinent. Today, this form of medicine has been incorporated into numerous general wellness applications and is considered a form of alternative medicine.
The Concept of Ayurveda
The concept of Ayurveda is said to have had originated during the Vedic period (around the Indus Valley Civilization). This particular form of medicine incorporated certain religious aspects into medical practices, namely dosa’s. Dosa can be described in simple terms as a balance of sorts within the human body.
There are three dosas in total (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) which, incoordination, sync to give wellness, and if imbalanced lead to disease. Hence, it can be said that Ayurvedic medicine calls for the balance of good health and not necessarily the elimination of illness.
The fact that this form of holistic therapy requires a balance within the human self as well as a state of relaxation. It comes as no surprise that a critical element of Ayurvedic medicine is an Ayurvedic massage.
What is Ayurvedic Massage?
Even though this form of alternative medicine is linked to religious aspects, an Ayurvedic massage has to be carried out in the right conditions and the right state of mind.
The masseuse, or therapist, in this case, is someone who has been trained for practicing such a massage by having apt knowledge of Ayurveda. Their primal role comes not in the massage, but the transfer of positive vibes.
The Ayurvedic Therapist
During an Ayurvedic massage, an unobtrusive exchange of energy happens between the therapist and the beneficiary, so it is imperative to feel positiveness with your therapist. Thus, an influx of genuine love and empathy moves through the therapist as they regard the confidence you have put in them as a form of respect.
The therapist synchronizes their breathing with the beneficiary to keep up a profound interconnection. Moreover, the therapists center their vitality with a short prayer and meditation.
The Ayurvedic massage strokes differ from profound to shallow and pursue the progression of energy channels – from nerve pathways to hair development. There are three sorts of strokes – active, passive, and persuasive. The whole body, in general, is tended to during the massage to achieve a feeling of integration.
For the therapist, a thorough understanding of Marmas and Chakras is necessary before carrying out the massage.,Marmas are regions of acupressure on the body that needed to be tended to re-establish a continuous flow of energy. In recent years, these Marmas have been reduced to an innumerable quantity to 107 significant points.
Ayurveda believes that these Marmas are not without their significance. They show areas of stress and imbalances, where the beneficiary has felt exhausted or overwhelmed. Again, Ayurvedic medicine does not necessarily call for the elimination of the disease in all forms, rather a way of harmonization within the human body.
The massage can not be completed until every pressure point of the consumer’s body is released from tension. Hence, the therapy room has been heavily designed to achieve a maximum level of comfort.
Aromas are breezing through the room, soothing music all around and mantras chanted in whispers throughout the procedure to bring the client to ease.
