Ayurvedic Massage Therapies

Isha Arogya therapies aim at keeping the enzymes in the tissue cells in their normal functioning condition, thereby revitalizing the cells. Nerves are soothed and bones are kept soft. This creates an overall tranquility in the mind which prevents the process of ageing and reduces possible future ailments. Individual therapies are available by appointment. If you would like to schedule a session, please contact us.

The benefits one can derive from massage are numerous, including:

  • Improved circulation and lymphatic drainage, and elimination of toxins from the body.
  • Alleviation of potential harmful effects of stress, giving a feeling of overall wellbeing.
  • Stimulation of the immune system and strengthen resistance to disease.
  • Easing constipation, aiding digestion and relieving abdominal spasm.
  • Easing muscular aches and pains and promoting muscle relaxation.

Ayurvedic massage creates a deep relaxation in the body where deeply rooted imbalances in the system can be overcome, restoring harmony and functional integrity of the doshas (unique body types). Different from pressure point western massage, Ayurvedic massage uses various types of medicated oils in long vigorous strokes throughout the body.

Sareeraabhyangam – Rejuvenating & Detoxifying

A full body, medicated, herbal oil rub, is performed by two therapists in synchronized movements. The therapy treats the whole person – body, mind and spirit – while balancing the doshas or the individual’s energy patterns.

The rhythmic motion releases joints and relaxes muscles for greater freedom of movement. It increases blood circulation and encourages the elimination of metabolic wastes. There is significant relief from anxiety, fatigue, circulatory disorders, rheumatic and arthritic problems, backaches and injuries.
