Ayurveda Vacation

Massage week – Ayurvedic Vacation

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which literally means “The science of long life.” It is also known as the science of digestion and the science of self-healing. The World Health Organization recognizes Ayurveda as one of the top three medical systems in America. Ayurveda heals the root of the dis-ease, rather than focusing on the alleviation of symptoms. Modalities include nutritional and lifestyle changes, ayurvedic massage, herbs, yoga, meditation, mantra, mindfulness, sound, color, crystal and aroma therapy.

Five thousand years old, Ayurvedic massage has been shown to still the mind and body by lowering metabolic rates and inspiring feelings of peace and calm. Often administered as a part of a three-, five-, or seven-day program, these treatments are an integral part of deep cleansing, rejuvenation, and life-extension Ayurvedic programs called panchakarma or kya kalpa.

During the Ayurvedic massage week we use oil that is treated with medicinal herbs. The massage is done on a massage table. There are many techniques to warm up the body and to loosen up tensions. The body becomes more smoothly and increases in energy. The combination between massage techniques, the medicated ayurvedic massage oil and a massage which is adapted to the body, ensures that your body and mind become entirely balanced.

During the ayurvedic massage week you’ll learn by demonstration and practising on each other. You will learn the techniques of ayurvedic massage one step at a time, until you’re able to give a full ayurvedic massage. You’ll receive a comprehensive handbook ‘Ayurvedic massage’. The Ayurvedic massage courses are suitable for beginners and for more experienced people.
