Ayurvedic massage is more comprehensive than any other form of massage. Its purpose is to restore balance and revitalize the physiology. Stress, improper diet and lifestyle, and environmental influences can push our bodies out of their natural equilibrium. This lack of balance results in ill health and chronic disorders, and plays a significant part in the aging process. The treatment programs offered at The Raj Ayurveda Health Spa are designed to detoxify the body and eliminate the harmful effects of stress. Traditionally known as "Panchakarma", these therapies remove impurities from deep within the tissues and channels of the physiology, allowing for a free flow of energy and intelligence.
Published studies have shown that a 5-day Panchakarma program reduces levels of harmful fat-soluble environmental chemicals by 50%. (see research page)
Marma Points and Symmetry
Marma is a Sanskrit word that means hidden, or secret. A marma point is a place on the body where two or more types of tissue meet. These points are more than just physical connecting points; they have an enlivening effect on the entire physiology. By massaging and "waking up" these marma points, Ayurvedic massage re-awakens the underlying intelligence that structures the physical body.
Massages at The Raj are generally given by two technicians so that both sides of the body can be massaged at the same time for the most balancing effect.
