Ayurvedic Bodywork Training 



Module 1: Ayurvedic Relaxation Massage

Derived from an ancient Indian tradition, Ayurvedic treatments are designed to help loosen toxins in the body and release excesses. The goal in all the treatments is to restore balance and re-establish calmness and harmony. They are deeply cleansing and purifying for the mind, body and spirit. The treatments have a rhythm and flow that encompass the entire body. Herbalised oils are used which target individual imbalances.

An Ayurvedically prepared herbal-oil application (abhyanga) nourishes the skin, aids in removing impurities, stimulates both arterial and lymphatic circulation and relaxes the mind and body, promoting overall healing. This treatment enhances the ability of nutrients to reach starved cells and also removes stagnant waste. The desired result is a heightened state of awareness that will direct the internal healing system of the body.

Ayurvedic massage is unique and has a point of difference from any other style of massage. Have you ever wondered whether your using the right type of oil to suit your clients body type? Ayurveda tailors each and every treatment to suit the individual, you can enhance your clients treatment by using easy to follow  techniques according to the ancient principles and philosophy of Ayurveda.
