Ayurvedic back and dry massage

Detox massages for body and psyche

This seminar is the first step to get in touch with the therapeutic detox and special treatments of Ayurveda. Because in addition to its relaxing oil massages, the Ayurvedic treatment catalog includes other very effective treatments that refresh, detoxify, relieve pain or reduce weight in body and mind: These include Garshan, the massage with raw silk gloves, which can be performed in a gentle or dynamic way, and Pristabhyanga, the holistic back treatment. You will learn to apply both in this three-day practical seminar in a comprehensive and type-appropriate way.

Garshan, the silk glove massage, is a simple massage technique with an intensive detox effect - ideal for all Kapha types to vitalize and stimulate the metabolism. The Pristhabhyanga, Ayurvedic back massage also gives lightness and relief from tension and pain. The deep massage strokes and strokes from the lower back to the shoulders and neck are performed with selected Ayurvedic oils (Thaila), which help to release blocking tensions and stress-related blockages.
