Did you know that a daily practice of self-massage can benefit you if you struggle to fall asleep or suffer from regular body aches and pains?Not only does self massaging increases circulation, stimulates organ function, helps your body detox and improves sleep, it also has many other potential benefits such as slowing aging and nourishing your skin. Ayurveda promotes practicing a 10 minute daily self-massage which stimulates your energetic channels, promoting the easy flow of prana through your mind and body.
Before you start applying the oil you should rub your skin with a body brush or raw silk body massage gloves. Dry body brushing helps to treat cellulite, reduce water retention & improve lymphatic drainage by removing unwanted toxins from your body including fatty deposits. Our 100% natural raw silk Garshana Gloves can be used everyday for an Ayurvedic dry body massage at home to perform a lymphatic cleanse and to detox your body.
Start the body massage with circular strokes on the shoulder joints and move towards the arms in long strokes and then circular stokes around the elbow. Give your hands some loving attention, both on the palms and the backs of the hands. Massage the stomach in clockwise direction and use circular strokes around the hips & buttocks. Follow that with long stokes on the thighs and legs and circular strokes on the knees and ankles focussing on the sole of the foot. Remember to always massage towards the heart.
Use a lightweight body oil while doing the self-massage so it does not leave a sticky, thick residue and helps your hands glide seamlessly across your body. Also warm the oil slightly for best results. Use an oil that has a base of sesame seed, coconut or almond and has no artificial fragrances but instead has a blend of botanicals and essential oils that are soothing and relaxing.
