This book is a manual with photographs that passes on the art of Ayurvedic Massage as practised by the Wandering Monks, an ancient discipline that uses techniques that are different from those practised in Ayurvedic clinics and taught in Western schools, which today risks being lost. The reader is taken on a journey to learn more about this ancient manual discipline with the help of sacred scriptures and by traditional Indian medical texts. It is a useful book for people receiving massage or Ayurevedic medicine treatments that helps them understand a little more in depth what lies at the heart of all therapeutic treatments. It is a textbook for the increasing number of students of Ayurveda, whether they be future therapists or doctors. And finally it is a book for travellers, for all those who want to get to know the most profound and unique aspects of Indian culture; the tale of a journey whose central notion is the only truly important journey: the interior one.

The effective yet gentle 'Sukshma' technique, for working with the Marma points at the emotional as well as on the physical level, is fully described in this book. Marma Therapy - the art of treating specific vital points on the human body - is one of the greatest healing secrets of Ayurveda. It can be used to detoxify, strengthen and revitalize the body, for rejuvenation and relaxation or to release blocked energy. The authors explain the theoretical basis of Marma Therapy, and then provide a detailed, fully illustrated guide to its use. For each Marma point, the authors provide information about its significance, the Ayurvedic element it relates to, the most appropriate oils to use, and what it can be used to treat. Clear step-by-step instructions and photographs illustrate the techniques, and advice is also included for self-treatment. The authors explain how to strengthen the Marmas through yoga and use mudras to support and complement Marma treatment. Finally, they describe how to treat common physical and emotional conditions, from headache and back pain, to exam nerves and insomnia.

Five thousand years old, Ayurvedic massage has been shown to still the mind and body by lowering metabolic rates and inspiring feelings of peace and calm. Often administered as a part of a three-, five-, or seven-day program, these treatments are an integral part of deep cleansing, rejuvenation, and life-extension Ayurvedic programs called panchakarma or kya kalpa. This book by a noted practitioner features more than 15 of these treatments, each described in step-by-step detail and some synchronized with two therapists for up to two hours in length. It provides the reader with all the tools necessary to begin Ayurvedic treatments as a part of a spa menu or massage therapy program.

While a number of authors have written on "ayurvedic massage", most of them have not truly integrated the massage techniques into the science of ayurveda with the background and depth of knowledge of the authors in this volume. Dr. Ranade, one of the foremost authorities in the field of ayurveda, along with his co-author Dr. Rawat, himself an ayurvedic educator have integrated the principles of ayurveda at a level that can make the use of massage a serious therapeutic tool for the ayurvedic doctor or health practitioner. Ayurvedic massage has many unique features and advantages compared to many other types of massage therapy. Dramatic results can be obtained when the practitioner has the ability to adapt the massage technique according to body type, age, stage of the disorder or disease, as well as the general health of the digestion and the imbalances present in the client or patient. Most ayurvedic massage texts content themselves with differentiating the technique based on constitutional type of the body alone; while Drs. Ranade and Rawat, with their long-training and experience as professors and educators in the field, are able to provide insight and integration to the diverse aspects of this field to make it truly effective at a deeper level. In addition, they explain the different types of oils or other substances that can be used, as well as the circumstances and manner of determining which one is appropriate in a particular case. They describe how modifications to the stroke and direction of the stroke used can be applied based on the underlying circumstances unique to each client. The readers of this text will gain a background in ayurvedic theory, as well as applied therapy. Ayurvedic massage can be seen as a therapeutic tool in its own right as well as a predecessor to panchakarma treatment. For the first time the important concept of "marma massage" has been explained and described. This technique is extremely valuable and is becoming quite popular among practitioners of ayurveda both in India and abroad. A chapter on "Massage for Specific Diseases" highlights some important disease conditions for which the massage techniques can be very useful.
