AYURVEDIC Massage for Health

AYURVEDIC Massage for Health

The Ayurveda Experience October 08, 2015

Ayurvedic Massage offers many benefits. If done in the morning, it helps you to start your day off relaxed, which is essential in maintaining balance. When done at night, it promotes a restful night’s sleep.

It doesn’t matter when you choose to do the Massage, but you will receive the optimum benefits if you do it every day. Since the quality of Vata is dry and cold, a warm and oily massage provides an ideal balance for Vata Types, though all types will notice increased health and vitality, especially during Vata season. The Massage soothes the nervous system and the endocrine system, since skin produces endocrine hormones. It rejuvenates the skin, promoting a youthful appearance. It also eliminates toxins and tones the muscles.

Sesame oil is generally recommended for AYURVEDIC Massage because it helps to balance all three of the Doshas.

But feel free to choose one of the oils that are specific to your Dosha. Sesame is great for Vata. Coconut or sunflower both work well for Pitta. Corn or olive oils are beneficial for balancing Kapha. You can also add herbs or fragrances to the oils to personalize them for your needs. The entire massage requires only about 2 ounces of oil per person each time. If you are so inclined, this is a massage that you and your partner can do together.

Balancing Massage Oil for:
Vata – Sesame, Almond, Castor
Pitta – Coconut, Sunflower
Kapha – Olive, Corn, Mustard
