Sandhi Chalana (Joint Mobilization)
It is performed before the massage on the main joint regions to relax and dissolve stiffness. Sedentary life greatly limits joint mobility, therefore it is advisable to perform sandhi chalana before the massage to relax and drain and prepare the person for the next massage treatment.
Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Massage)
It is performed on the whole body with specific vegetable oils in relation to the constitution (Prakriti) of the subject but also to the season, the climate, and the disorders. Regular practice is recommended. According to the classic texts of Ayurveda (Astanga Hrdaya 2. 7-8), Ayurvedic massage prevents aging processes in the body, helps to overcome fatigue and gives vigor, strengthens and improves the nervous system, vision and sleep quality.
Padabhyanga (Foot Massage)
Although Ayurvedic massage is traditionally performed on the whole body, great benefits can also be obtained with a local massage on specific parts such as foot massage. The partial massage performed on the feet and legs is particularly suitable in the evening for its ability to improve the quality of sleep, for the elderly, for those who do sedentary work, it is also effective against sciatica, cramps and ligament contractions and to improve circulation. According to the classic texts of Ayurveda (Uttara tantra 15.66-67), this massage acts on important nerves located under the soles of the feet and connected with the head, also improving eye health.
