Abhyanga Massage

Traditional medicine acts at the symptom level, but Ayurvedic massage acts on the cause of the problems, and is therefore widely used as an alternative to conventional treatments, even to harmonize body and mind and recover energy... and also to help say "goodbye" to negative thoughts and "hello" to good mood!


What is Ayurvedic massage?

Ayurvedic massage is an ancient Indian natural massage therapy technique that relies on three principles - vital energy, blood circulation, and breathing - achieved through two methods - yoga and ayurveda - to provide relaxation and well-being.

Thus, Ayurvedic massages are highly recommended to release blocked emotions, restore the balance of the body as a whole, promote physical and psychological improvements, combat stress, panic attacks, and symptoms of depression and fatigue, because they provide deep relaxation that brings, consequently, positive thoughts.

In addition, Ayurvedic massages also help in treatments for chemical dependency, allergies, and fibromyalgia, among other diseases.


How does Ayurvedic medicine work?

If you're interested in trying an ayurvedic massage in Lisbon, Porto or elsewhere in the country, it's important to understand that this natural massage is part of Ayurvedic medicine, for which illness is much more than the manifestation of unpleasant symptoms that appear after a person has developed a problem. It is, above all, a way to act on small organic imbalances that over time can become more evident.

Seeing the human being as an integral part of nature, Ayurvedic medicine works the so-called chakras, to balance energies, through various millennial techniques and according to the needs of each patient.

After all, it is not by chance that Ayurvedic is called the "mother of medicine". It was the basis for the development of traditional Chinese, Arab, Roman, and Greek medicine! It is even still the official medicinal method in India, where this massage is widely used to find healing and balance of body and mind.


How did Ayurvedic massage come about?

According to historical records, it appeared more than 7,000 years ago in India. However, it was only between 1800 and 500 B.C. that Ayurvedic science left India to spread around the world, including Portugal, where it has already established itself as an effective technique of traditional medicine. Thus, today there are ayurvedic massage centers in Lisbon and Porto, such as Genuine Tantric, which use the technique to ensure balance between body and mind.


Ayurvedic massage technique

This natural massage is performed through vigorous touches with the hands, elbows and feet, supported by vegetable oils and essences. The masseur uses massage techniques that include kneading, tapping, and squeezing, mixed with traditional massage movements, either fast or slow, depending on the patient's needs. 

Massage usually begins at the spine, which is the body's base of support, and only then moves on to the neck, legs, shoulders, belly, and face, providing a feeling of total relaxation by stimulating the muscles and blood circulation.

In any case, it is a more energetic massage than traditional massage, because it works all the musculature.
