It is practised in India as healing therapy for more than 5000 years. Ayurveda treats the person as a whole - body, spirit and soul. This science is
focused on a harmonic and healthy lifestyle and strives to allow optimal conditions for the physcial, psychological and spiritual development of the individual person.
A widely practised method for purification and rejuvenation is known as Abhyanga, an Ayurvedic oil massage. This special massage developed in
southern India is based on the science of the vital energy points ( Marmas ) and the energy meridians ( Nadis ).
Marmas are vital psychosomatic energy points in the the body which assume holistic functions. During massage the energy points and the
meridians are stimulated, so that the inherent healing power of the body is enlivened and activated.
