Massage is a treatment dealing with the movement of energy in the body. To maintain health and make harmony among Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, Ayurveda recommends massage with different vegetable and essential oils, and herbal drugs, which are prescribed according to each individual constitution. The main types of Ayurvedic massage are: daily comforting massage, self-massage, and healing massage.
The healing massage addresses the disturbance of the balance in the body and aims to restore it. It could also be directed toward release of negative emotions and accumulated impressions, which hamper and disrupt our life. The Ayurvedic massage safeguards against aging and tension: it provides for good sight, calm sleep, healthy and elastic skin, and long life.
