Ayurveda massages harmonise the body and stimulate the muscles to be relaxed. Increase blood circulation and remove impurities from the body. Well, that’s the hottest thing you can do to your body, literally. A steam bath relaxes the muscles and leads to sweating, which helps in detoxifying the skin. Massage may already have been very relaxing, but a steam bath would be an icing on the cake. This therapeutic massage begins with the application of oil followed by dry fomentation using small linen bags filled with herbal powders. This massage helps to relieve pain stiffness and swelling of joints.
