Types of Ayurvedic Massages you can experience in Sri Lanka – Harmonize your mind, body and spirits

Sri Lankans have dabbled in Ayurveda, one of the oldest health care systems in the world for around 3000 years. This has given them plenty of time to perfect the science.


Ayurveda Body Massage

This is one of the most sought-after experiences when it comes to Ayurveda in Sri Lanka. Offered by many hotels such as Heritance Ayurveda Maha Gedara, it involves the application of special oils onto the entire body before you are taken in for a bath. It is excellent at rejuvenating one's spirits and is known to treat multiple disorders. Apart from that, it is a great technique to combat ageing while also nourishing the body and the skin to give a better glow.


Ayurveda Head Oil Application

A practice first initiated in India, the name of the technique explains it all. The type of oil used on the scalp differs according to your health condition and any health problems that you might be experiencing. It is known to treat problems like migraines and other scalp problems like hair loss, grey hair and increases the growth of hair. Furthermore, it helps the nervous system and improves blood circulation. A typical such Ayurveda treatment such as this takes between thirty to forty five minutes.


Ayurveda Herbal Steam Bath

Known as Vashpaswedanam in some parts of the world, it is a treatment where herbs with healing powers are boiled together. After this, the steam produced is exposed to the user's body. There are multiple benefits associated with this technique. These include the ability to decrease obesity, remove impurities from the body and skin as well as cure a range of skin issues. Some of the oils used include lemon grass and eucalyptus oil. If you do have heart issues or if you are pregnant, it is best you consult a doctor before you engage in such treatments.


Ayurveda Neck & Shoulder Massage

As you can guess by the name, this focuses on your neck and shoulder. It is a great technique for relaxing your mind and body due to its focus on many nerve points. Since the neck and shoulders are pretty much constantly moving, they sometimes turn stiff and tense, making the Ayurveda Neck & Shoulder Massage an ideal solution to this problem. It is begun with herbal oil that is then poured on to the neck and shoulder area after which the body is subjected to a vigorous massage. This massage serves two purposes; one is to relieve stress in that part of the body and the other is to increase the flow of blood in the body.


Ayurveda Foot Massage

Referred to as Padabhyanga, it is generally considered as the mother of all Ayurvedic techniques. In the Ayurveda world, the feet are considered one of the most important parts of the body. Special herbal oil is used and when combined with specific hand movements, they create a soothing effect on the body. This is a great solution for those with cracked heels, roughness and dry skin around the feet.
