I know Ayurvedic massages as an important part of an Ayurvedic cleansing cure, which I have been doing regularly for over 20 years. The beneficial effects of an ayurvedic massage have therefore been familiar to me for a long time. A few years ago I had the opportunity to become more intensively involved with Ayurveda and massage.
Professionally, I had been working in the financial sector until then. Most recently as director of the asset management company of a Frankfurt private bank. I have always enjoyed dealing with people and was able to put this into practice professionally. Three years ago, I took the opportunity to leave my previous professional activity and reorient myself. I consciously engaged in an inner process to find out in which direction my future activities could develop. In any case, it was clear to me that I wanted to work on a voluntary basis in the future.
An ideal place to think about life and to become clear about new tasks and goals is the Atmasantulana Village, probably the oldest and largest Ayurveda centre in India. The founder of the center was Shreeguru Balaji Tambe, Ayurvedic doctor, musician, book author and much more. Most of all, he was a spiritual teacher. Without him many positive developments in my life would not have been possible. During a 6-month stay there I did a lot of meditation, practiced yoga and completed a training in Ayurvedic full body massage. I would like to pass on my positive experiences with Ayurveda and massage and share them with others. Ayurveda with its focus on health prophylaxis is in my experience a perfect answer to the needs and challenges of our modern working world. Ayurvedic massage is an essential component of this.
