The term “ayurveda” derives from Sanskrit, where Ayu means life or longevity, and Veda means science. It originated in India about 5000 years ago as a holistic technique for restoring the balance between mind and body, principally by stimulating the organism’s energy centres: the chakras.
The type of touching, pressure and rubbing and therapeutic oils used during the massage differ depending on which of the three psychological and physiological profiles, known as the Doshes (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), the recipient corresponds to.
This technique, which was developed in Japan at the beginning of the 1900s, exploits the perpendicular support of the operator and the use of rhythmic pressure exerted on the recipient through the palms of the hands, thumbs, elbows and knees along the entire course of muscular spaces known as energy meridians. These pressures, associated with appropriate rotations and articular stretching, are able to bring significant benefits to the osteo-articular and muscular system, improving its functionality, as well as to all the body’s other systems, helping to redress any dysfunctions. It also provides profound psycho-physical relaxation.
A very old technique based on the aspiration of the skin through special glass cups heated by a torch that, by creating a vacuum, allow the disconnection of the connective tissue from the muscle tissue, stimulating a strong increase in circulation, thus draining the tissues and releasing even the deepest muscular contractions.
