Ayurvedic massage has a hypnotic effect on the body and mind; it is deeply relaxing and boosts the body’s circulation. When the body and mind are both at peace, one’s face reflects the inner calm. Moreover, rubbing the body with medicated herbal oils works as a tonic and increases one’s energy. Much of what we consider to be everyday routine and do mechanically such as rubbing oil on the whole body and taking a warm bath are, in fact, techniques of health care. These are the very routines preached by Ayurveda. Ayurveda advises the practice of daily massage of the body with oil. This is the best way of preserving youthfulness; massaging the whole body has a greater impact: it relaxes, cleanses and creates a harmony between the mind and the body. The massage is performed by two Ayurvedic therapists working in perfect synchrony. It is followed by a steam bath which helps the oils to penetrate thoroughly, cleanse the body and remove the toxins lodged deep within the tissues. The steam bath is followed by a warm shower. The shower removes all the dirt and revitalises the body. Bathing every day not only removes dirt, but also revitalises the body, stimulates appetite, prevents itching and chases lethargy away. If we do not take time out for these seemingly small things, we will diminish the quality of our lives. Massages are recommended for children too. They assist in growth and strengthen the immune system.
