padabhyanga oil massage
This holistic treatment focuses on the feet and legs. Our feet are our closest connection to the earth and support us every day. As per ayurveda, our body is symbolic of an inverted tree. As such our legs and feet are the branches and fruit produced. It is important to have healthy roots, but diseased branches and rotten fruit can signal a deeper issue within the body.
This treatment aims to maintain good foot health so that we can sustain and support our overall health. The massage techniques used help with blood circulation and improves the ligaments and muscles of the feet and legs. The ayurvedic practitioner gives a gentle foot massage that focuses on various marma points located on the feet to direct the energy, relieve stress, and promote full body health. In the process, swelling is also reduced and better sleep is promoted.
