Introduction to Ayurveda massage
Ayurveda, the ancient holistic healing system of India, is a complete approach to health and lifestyle management. This system incorporates diet, exercise, life activity routines, psychotherapeutic practices, and, of course, bodywork, which is one of the foundations of Ayurvedic therapeutics.
The three main Ayurveda constitutional body types are stable/fixed, fluctuating/changeable, and intense. The three body types determine physical and psychological characteristics. Ayurveda has a 5,000-year history of using unique sophisticated massage techniques as integrated parts of a total healing system. Massage is used in Ayurveda for even the most serious conditions.
