What is Ayurvedic massage?
Discover the science of life.
Do you know the difference between Ayurvedic massage and other massage techniques?
At our wellness hotels in the Dolomites, Ayurveda is not just a word. Translated from Sanskrit, it means ‘the science of life and longevity,’ incorporating traditional Indian medicine: a holistic system which seeks to connect body, mind, and spirit. Massages (abhyanga) within this system differ to other massages due to their concentration on the skin, considered the largest organ of the human body, and their inherent relationship with the mind. Physical benefits include releasing muscle tension, lymphatic drainage, and nourishment of the skin. A competent therapist uses this knowledge by using essential oils and focusing on specific meridians to manipulate energy through circulation-stimulating movements rather than pressure. In this way, the skin absorbs the medicinal properties locally, subsequently freeing your mind from mental strain. Depending on your skin type, daily or weekly massages are recommended.
