Why Ayurvedic Massage?
Searching For Truth: A Blog by Sherri Smith
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word derived from the roots ayus meaning life and veda meaning knowledge and is the oldest recorded system of medicine in the world.
The Ayurvedic Massage is a choreographed sequence of strokes which activate the subtle body at 107 ‘marma points’ which are considered to be the junction points between consciousness and matter (body). Enlivening these points enhances pure consciousness within the body and allows for a spontaneous healing response at the deepest levels of imbalance.
Our skin is the largest digestive organ in the body, so introducing therapeutic grade essential oils with an organic carrier oil allows for natural medicine to permeate the tissues and be ingested into the body to optimize results. These oils soften of the impurities lodged within the body’s cellular structure, allowing them to loosen and move this stagnation and toxicity to channels for elimination.
The quality of touch is also important with these treatments. For each body type, a specific pressure is applied to access the lymphatic tissue. The practitioner moves through the sequence in a dance, allowing both the client and practitioner an energy exchange through intention.
This therapy is a beautiful and powerful way to release tension, restore balance, move stagnation and allow for healing. For optimal results, successive treatments booked close together allow the practitioner access to the deepest levels of imbalances.
