An Ayurveda massage serves not only to relieve pain but especially as preventive medicine increasing circulation, stimulating and strengthening the lymphatic system, and opening the flow of life force in order to cleanse and revitalize the body.

During an Ayurvedic massage, organic oil blends are infused with Ayurvedic herbs and heated to promote relaxation and detoxification. The oils are chosen to balance a person’s dominant dosha. At the right temperature, these oils enter the body through the skin and pores, bind to the ama (toxins), and eliminate them to detoxify the body.

Is Ayurveda massage holistic?

Ayurveda is a form of therapy that considers the whole person (including his or her mind, body and spirit)—in the quest for optimal health. The idea of an Ayurveda massage is that one can achieve overall wellness through the achievement of proper balance in the body.

When you visit an Ayurvedic practitioner, they’ll likely take an approach to treating whatever you’re dealing with by considering your dosha type and your environment—the stress in your life, your diet and medications you’ve taken in the past.

What are the Benefits of Ayurveda Massage?

Just as Ayurveda is prevention-oriented, so is an Ayurveda massage. In general, Ayurvedic massage can help.

  • Balance Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas
  • Promote healthy skin
  • Detoxify and cleanse
  • Enhance the immune system
  • Reduce stress
  • Boost body awareness
  • Clear physiological and energetic pathways
  • Keep healthy people in good health
  • Essential massages that boost health

One of the most popular Ayurveda massages is Panchakarma, where a number of massages are carried out. Some of the Ayurveda massages done are:

Shirodhara: Head massage where oil is poured continuously on the head.

Abhyangam: Full body massage using warm herbal oil. The use of pressure during the massage helps to stimulate energy in the body.

Udvarthanam: A massage done by wet/dry rubbing herbal powder over the body to release toxins and remove fat.

Elakizhi: A combination of herbal leaves are made into a poultice which is dipped in warm herbal oil and used to massage the body.
