Ayurvedic Body Massage- The Best Way to Relax
  
An Ayurvedic massage is quite different than your western massage. It involves altogether different techniques and focuses on different pressure points. An Ayurvedic body massages focuses on removing the body of toxins while strengthening the muscles and rejuvenating the body by relaxing it at the same time. An Ayurvedic massage is not only given with hands, but also elbows feet, oiled balls and forearms.
 
One thing that different a western massage from an Ayurvedic one is the non-use of massage tables. In every other spa, massage tables are used for the procedure, however in Ayurveda mats are used. Some Ayurvedic spas in Kerala also use mattresses without the presence of cushions. One can receive an Ayurvedic body massage in Kerala while in sitting position as well. The techniques in this particular massage that are used include not only using the traditional stokes but also kneading, tapping and squeezing that also release and expulsion of toxins from the body.
 
The main idea behind an Ayurvedic massage is the fact that every person has his or her own “dosha”. A dosha is a person’s aura; his or her form of life that needs to be purified during the massage. Before the massage, essential oils with herbs are chosen to cater to every person individual dosha and it is made sure that those oils are compatible with the person’s aura. Furthermore, the Ayurvedic massage focuses on “marma points” otherwise known as pressure points in acupuncture and reflexology. So if you want to soothe your body, mind and soul, opt for an Ayurvedic body massage in Kerala.
