Ayurveda is an ancient medical science from the time of Vedic scriptures in India (5000 years) based on a natural way of healing made of personalized yoga, diet, massages, and more.

Ayurveda Kalari massages

The first part of the massage is based on large movements throughout the entire body, focus on balancing the flow of life energies through the nadis (nervous system body channels), balancing chakras, their circular center energies, strengthening lymphatic system, balancing bloody circulation and nervous systems, preparing the body for a second phase with muscles decontracting techniques. It helps to clean and revitalize the entire body and mind as combined with pranayama (breathing techniques) and Shavasana (conscious full relaxation).

It is divided into three main forms of therapies and massages:

  • Sukha Tirummu or Kacha Tirummu: the relaxing one or a sport massage with yoga postures into it
  • Raksha Tirummu: a therapeutic treatment made with a cotton bag full of 20 medical plants in powder (Marma Kizhi) heated on the Ayurvedic oil and spread over an inflamed area. It helps relieve sciatic nerve, neuralgic pain, arthritis, post-trauma discomfort, disc problems, muscles contractures, etc.
  • Marma points acupressure: Through the pressure of fingers on special vital points (108) throughout the entire body, it is possible to balance various systems
