Natural Health gets harmonious with Ayurvedic massage

NATHEALTHFEB18Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic system, based on achieving physical and mental harmony with nature and has been practised for more than 5,000 years. Ayurveda quite literally translates as ‘science of life’ (‘Ayu’ meaning life and ‘Veda’ meaning science), and was first recorded in the Vedas, the world’s oldest surviving literature.

One component of this system with numerous benefits is Ayurvedic massage. We help Natural Health magazine readers ease into this relaxing and re-balancing therapy with a full page feature, detailing what to expect during an Ayurvedic massage treatment session and how it can form part of a more holistic lifestyle.
