Padabhyanga means foot massage. Feet are the most used parts of our body; this reason makes them highly prone to degeneration. Many issues arising from chronic disorders display their first signs on the lower body.

Many athletes involved in cardio-vascular exercises use their lower limbs to a higher extent in routine practice and also to maintain fitness.

PRISTHABHAYANGA - AYURVEDIC BACK MASSAGE THERPY

This massage works carefully up the lower back, buttocks, spine, waist and shoulder areas which are generally stressed in our daily life.

Ayurveda and yoga give lot of importance to the spinal cord calling it ‘Sushumnanadi’, reflecting the importance of the back muscles and vertebral column in keeping the cord safe, from where actually the various nerves of the body emerge and control our voluntary and involuntary movements.

The massage also focuses on Marma points (energy points) over the whole back, arms and hands with the aim of removing blockages in the muscles and cartilages, so that there is free flow of body fluids and the nerves emerging from the spinal cord are relaxed to perform their jobs efficiently, thus nurturing the body.

  2.  Relief from repetitive strain injuries
  3.  Sciatica
  4.  Chronic and acute back and neck pain
