Barcelona is a beautiful city with a lot of things to do. A busy, modern hub where you can get the best of contemporary life. But you also need some time for yourself, to retreat from it all, to let your body recover its energy and revitalize.
Every person has their own way of dealing with the normal stress brought upon them by normal, daily life. One outlet that never seems to go out of style is the good old massage. There are thousands of different techniques and types of massage services you can get and they each serve different purposes.
Is the Ayurvedic massage India’s best-kept secret?
Dating back 5000 years, the Ayurvedic massage derives its name from Ayurveda (“life knowledge), an ancient system of alternative medicine with quite a mythical origin story. Legend says that its knowledge of the human body was passed at first from Gods to sages, who then passed it along to the doctors of the region. While not the most popular type of massage, it has slowly gained notoriety in the west through the years, as those who try it are not shy to sing its praises.
Your body is a work of art
We take daily care of several parts of our body but it’s common to neglect what is, ironically, our largest organ – the skin. The Ayurvedic massage knows how important the skin is to your general well-being and takes good care of it using soothing oils.
Ayurvedic massage therapists take the role of body sculptors as they bring your body back into shape by reorganizing your energy pathways and creating harmony in the body, which then translates to the mind.
