In an age of technical and, at times, impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive andhumanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself. So what exactly are the benefits to receiving regular massage and/or bodywork treatments?
- Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
- Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body's natural defense system, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
- Increased circulation of blood and lymph systems improves the condition of the body's largest organ - the skin.
- Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles
- Reduces spasms and cramping
- Increases joint flexibility.
- Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
- Releases endorphins - the body's natural painkiller - and is being used in chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
- Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred.
- Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain.
- Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication.
- Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion.
- Assists with shorter labor for expectant mothers, as well as less need for medication, less depression and anxiety.

In this massage we use oil and a herbal powder. The massage is done on a mattress on the floor. We use hands and feet to give massage. There are many deep techniques to warm the body and relieve the tensions. After warming the body, yoga stretching are done according to the condition and necessity of the client/ receiver
The herbal powder used in the massage is Calamus and is a very good detoxifying herb. It is anti septic, anti-inflammatory and exfoliating. It helps to bring out the deep seated toxins from lymph and muscles.

Ayur Balance Massage is a deep, relaxing and stress relieving massage aimed at removing and reducing the imbalances in the different parts of the body. Its a complete body massage and works towards bringing a harmony and a sense of balance in the body and being.
The massage is a development in the tradition of powerful massages from Central India. The massage was often used to be given on warriors to make their body more supple, flexible and at the same time relieve their stress and rejuvenate the body.
This is a massage that is fulfilling the requirement of a deeper, powerful work that goes more into the muscular level and brings out a profound effect to balance and bring the body back to it natural state of harmony.

The massage is influenced by the profound work of Appa from Bengal, and deviced into harmonious sequence by him expereince.
The massage is given with firm and deep mostly with linear strokes and at times in angles and half circles. In the massage the hands, thumb, fingers, knuckles, fist and elbow are all used at different places.
The use of elbow and fist allows the giver to go much deeper into the body of the receiver and thus helping in working at levels, which are not usually possible.

The massage is done with mostly sesame oil or can also be done with sunflower oil. In one session two or more kind of oils can be used separately at different parts.
The massage begins with soft joint release and soft strokes. This lets the body come into an acceptance for deeper work. Then the oil is applied and more powerful strokes are given at different locations all over the body.
Bengal Ayur Balance Massage is whole body massage and includes massaging the face and head too.

Ayurveda: Origins
Ayurveda is the natural healing system of India. In Sanskrit, the word "Ayurveda" means 'science of life'. Ayu means life or daily living, and Veda means knowing. Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas, one of the the world's oldest literature. The Vedic system, including Ayurveda was in practice before 4000 B.C. Vedic science also includes Yoga, meditation and astrology as its branches for dealing with physical body.
Ayurveda helps the healthy person to maintain health, and a diseased person to regain health. It is both a medical and metaphysical healing science. It includes herbal medicines, dietetics, bodywork, surgery, psychology and spirituality. In Ayurveda the creative force 'Dhanvantari' the divine healer, symbolizes Brahma. All Ayurveda literature is based on the Samkya philosophy of creation. 'Sat' means 'truth' and 'Kya' means 'to seek', to know.
The ancient Rishis, or realized beings, discovered truth by means of religious practices, disciplines and through intensive meditations. Rishis and sages like Shushrutacharya, Charakacharya, Vagbaht, Sarangdhar etc. created great commentaries, contributing their efforts and insights to make it available to all of us.
Ayurveda is concerned with eight principle branches of medicines, collectively called 'Ashtang Ayurveda'. They are pediatrics, gynecology, obstetrics, ophthalmology, geriatrics, otolaryngology, general medicine and surgery. All these medical specialties are addressed according to theories of five elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth), the Tridoshas or bodily humors (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), the seven Dhatus or bodily tissues, the three Malas or waste (urine, stool and sweat), and spiritual growth.
Any imbalance between body, mind and environment begins the process of disease.
The treatment not only works on the disease but also emphasizes achieving more health, longevity and awareness. There are various treatments including a daily regime, Meditations, Pranayama, Yoga, balanced diet according to the body type, the attributes, the medicines, and a variety of cleansing process called Panchakarma, Shirodhara, Rasayani, Vajikaran, etc.
Bengal Ayurveda brings a unique way to continue this traditional science in this modern life style.
