Ayurvedic Body Massage
With this course, let’s continue our discovery of Ayurveda with the Abhyanga Massage. This is the Body Massage of Ayurveda. It’s a body massage performed with Sesame or Coconut oil. An absolute must!
Ayurveda believes that the body is endowed with its own intelligence, containing all the elements necessary to regulate itself and maintain perfect balance and harmony. The massage therapist will act on the energy pathways to enable vital energy – Prana in Ayurvedic tradition – to circulate freely and harmoniously throughout the body. The goal: overall well-being for both body and mind.
A massage lasting up to 2 hours, the many techniques employed aim to soften the skin, deeply relax muscles and release tension in tendons, ligaments and joints. Through circular and gliding pressure, friction, accupressure, stretching, deep effleurage, smoothing and kneading, Abhyanga brings relaxation and harmony to the body, thanks in particular to its moderate, fluid rhythm (which you can adapt to your clients’ needs). This training course is designed for everyone. It enables you to learn massage step by step. The Theory Course is available in Video and PDF versions, which you can download and print out if required. The Practical Course is in Video version. It is commented movement by movement by France. Pause, Rewind, View as many times as you like. That’s the strength of online training. What’s more, to help you, in the Documents section you’ll find the Massage Technique Sheets, which include diagrams of each massage movement – the detailed version of the Massage. These technical sheets are in PDF format and can (and should) be printed out. This will provide you with reference points while you massage. A Question & Answer module is available. You can write to us at any time with your questions, and we’ll be happy to answer them.
