Ayurvedic massage is a special technique of deep tissue manipulation that aims to balance the physical and mental aspects of the body. The primary goal of this massage is to ensure the free flow of energy channels within the body, as Ayurvedic teachings suggest that all pathologies arise from the obstruction of these energy flows. At PIED-DE-POULE salons, well-trained professional massage therapists will introduce clients to the fascinating world of Eastern practices.
Indications and Contraindications for Ayurvedic Massage
Ayurvedic massage is known to address a range of issues, including:
- General fatigue, chronic tiredness, and apathy.
- Circulation problems.
- Lymphatic system congestion.
- Cholesterol buildup.
- Pain due to osteochondrosis.
- Stress, psychological and emotional tension.
- Unstable blood pressure.
- Spinal and joint disorders, and more.
However, like any powerful intervention on the body, Ayurvedic massage has certain contraindications, such as:
- Individual intolerance and allergic reactions to herbs and oils used in the procedure.
- Colds, infections, or chronic diseases in an acute stage.
- Skin conditions, wounds, or abscesses.
- Gastrointestinal issues.
- Oncological diseases. Ayurvedic massage is also not recommended during pregnancy.
It's important not to disregard these contraindications. While specialists at PIED-DE-POULE salon will inquire about your medical history and current condition, it's crucial to be attentive to your own well-being.
Ayurvedic Massage Techniques
In the practice of therapeutic interventions using Ayurvedic techniques, several types of massages are distinguished. They all adhere to the main principle of creating a balance between energy and the physical body, but they differ in execution.
Abhyanga: This type of massage is considered a classic in Ayurveda. It involves an energetic four-handed massage using aromatic oils and incense. It provides an energy boost while inducing deep relaxation.
Marma: Marma involves the targeted application of pressure to energy zones. It activates the body's protective and restorative functions, helping individuals achieve physical and psychological well-being quickly.
Garshan: Garshan is a "dry" massage technique where the therapist wears silk gloves. The static electricity generated by friction enhances skin tone, refreshes the body, and reduces excess fluid retention.
These techniques represent just a small part of Eastern healing practices. The most suitable technique for you is determined through a personal consultation with a specialist, taking into account the duration of the course, its cyclicality, and the selection of oils and incense.
