Ayurvedic massage therapy works on both the physical and mental levels,
transmitting a life-giving energy that assists all systems of the body to repair
and renew themselves.
Ayurvedic massage practitioners concentrate on the marmas, subtle energy
points (like in Shiatsu), that respond to gentle physical manipulation, and work
with the needs of the different body types.
The author guides both the novice and the experienced practitioner through
each step of the full body and explains which massage oils and massage
techniques work best for particular body types.
