One of the most important health prophylaxis measures is a professional and reputable massage. It can have a lasting effect on many levels. Obviously, its effect is on the skin, our largest sensory organ. It is better supplied with blood and more elastic. The pores open, which improves skin breathing and stimulates detoxification through the skin. The aging process of the skin can be slowed down by regular massages.
However, the effects of a massage are not limited to the skin’s surface. The skin is traversed by nerve cells; they are specifically addressed by the massage or the respective massage techniques. Therefore, an invigorating or calming effect can be achieved as desired. At the muscular level, tension is relieved and the muscles relaxed. In general, a very positive effect on the entire organ system can be achieved. The heart and circulatory system is positively influenced. Stress symptoms such as insomnia, indigestion, nervousness and headaches can be reduced and, in the best case, eliminated.
The Sanskrit word for massage is Abhyanga and it means the application of oil to the body and good absorption of the oil into the skin and deeper tissues. At the beginning of the massage, some oil is applied to the head, ears, navel and soles of the feet. This and the entire massage have a Vata-calming effect. It is very important to use a high-quality massage oil cultivated according to Ayurvedic tradition.
In addition to an Ayurvedic full body massage and an Ayurvedic back massage, I also offer an Ayurvedic foot massage Kasya and use different techniques of classical massage.. Following the Ayurvedic tradition, I only massage men.
For legal reasons, I would like to point out that my massages are classified as wellness massages. I massage in the premises of the Santulan LIFE Center for Yoga, Ayurveda & Meditation at Herderstraße 23 in Frankfurt’s Nordend.
Ayurvedic Full Body Massage
I offer the Ayurvedic full body massage with and without facial massage. In the variant with a facial massage, the entire body, including the head and face, is massaged in 60 minutes using different massage techniques. Without a facial massage, the massage time is reduced to 50 minutes. Each massage is followed by a 10-minute rest period. It is an integral part of the treatment.
Depending on the technique used, a calming or invigorating effect can be achieved. I only use quality oils from Santulan Ayurveda, which are produced in India with high-quality ingredients. Oils based on sesame oil or coconut oil are used – selected according to constitutional type and season, among other things. The Ayurvedic full body massage can contribute to balance on a physical, mental and spiritual level, particularly by relieving tension and improving blood circulation.
Ayurvedic Back Massage
This massage, specially developed for the back, lasts approx. 35 minutes in which different massage techniques are used. The massage is followed by a rest period of 10 minutes. Used regularly, it promotes relaxed back muscles and can thus prevent the back problems that are widespread in today’s working world. By releasing blockages, well-being and quality of life can be increased. For this massage I use a massage oil from Santulan Ayurveda specially designed for the back.
Ayurvedic Foot Massage Kasya
The Ayurvedic foot massage Kasya begins with a 5-minute foot bath. Afterwards, the feet are gently massaged for a total of 10 minutes.The feet are then gently massaged for a total of 10 minutes. For this massage, I use a ghee specially developed for foot massages instead of oil. For further treatment I use a bronze bowl (Kaysa=bronze), which is made in India like the ghee. The soles of the feet, including the heel and underside of the toes, are massaged with the bronze bowl in rhythmic movements and with light pressure for approx. 12 minutes per foot. The treatment ends with a 10-minute rest period.
The effect of foot massage on feet is obvious. The blood circulation in the feet is improved, thereby relieving tension. The skin becomes soft; and cracks on the feet are prevented.
The additional effect occurs through the use of the bronze bowl in connection with the special ghee. Excessive heat accumulated in the body is discharged, and problems caused by the heat, such as burning and red eyes, can experience significant relief. Overall, strength and vitality increase.Schedule an Appointment
