Ayurveda massages can do more than just relax you – according to old Indian tradition, they provide true beauty.

More than 5,000 years ago, health teachings were developed in ancient India that they called the „science of long and healthy living“, which seeks the consonance of body, mind and spirit – Ayurveda. Ayurveda‘s holistic approach unifies the areas of nutrition, lifestyle and medicine and is still an integral part of everyday life in India today. Here in this country, Ayurveda is used primarily for relaxation and beauty rituals. Massages especially based on this ancient Indian tradition provide a special wellness experience with a profound effect.

Gentle, stroking movements, warm sesame oil on your skin – an Ayurvedic massage promises absolute relaxation. The Ayurvedic doctrine assumes that our constitution depends upon different energy flows. If all these energy flows balance each other out, consonance will take over and we feel well and balanced. On the other hand, if our energy flows get out of balance – whether due to stress, unhealthy diet or environmental influences – Ayurveda treatments can help restore the harmonious flow of energy.

Ayurveda has its origins in ancient Indian culture.

The full-body massage – Abhyanga – is one of the most beneficial and effective Ayurvedic treatments. The word Abhyanga means „oiling with loving hands“ in translation, and thus it gets to the core of Ayurvedic massage rituals. According to ancient Indian scriptures, the hands are considered to be divine instruments, and they use different stroking techniques to apply warm oils to the skin. Through the massage, the oils spread over the entire body and penetrate deep into the tissues, where they nourish cells and organs. The gentle movements calm the nervous system and ease ligaments, muscles and tendons. „In this treatment, the body enters a state of deep relaxation, a sense of well-being of full relaxation and lightness that lets you forget time and space,“ explains Rosalinde Freund, proprietor of the Romantik Hotel Freund & SPA Resort in Vöhl, northern Hesse, Germany. They are specialized in Ayurveda massages.

You do not need any spiritual teaching or a change of lifestyle to benefit from the harmonizing effect of an Ayurvedic treatment. Awareness and mindfulness are central components of Ayurveda and can easily be integrated into everyday life through a healthy diet or by enjoying nature. Ayurvedic massages additionally provide a wonderful means to get some peace in everyday life and to find out more about yourself by strengthening your inner balance. Thus, according to the Ayurvedic definition, true beauty is created – through the harmony of body, mind and soul.
