The Yawn Factor

imageOne of the things that I’ve always found so incredibly boring, are repeated posts about traditional conventional massage and other stuff like that.  As a person I guess Ive always gone outside the norm – looking to  check out and explore new ideas and perspectives on life.  This is really how I got involved in Traditional Indian Massage therapies & Ayurvedic Healthcare.  One day I decided that my career as a social worker was not fulfilling me any more, and so I handed in my resignation and went off to India for a few months.  Now you’re probably thinking, this is what most teenagers do-you know, take a gap year. Well let me tell you, I was 50 years old when I did this and believe me! It was the best thing I’ve ever done.   This is a blog that I’m 100% sure you’re going to enjoy!  Just drop me a line and let’s enjoy the journey together


Wave goodbye to the pain of fibromyalgia with Ayurveda

imageFibromyalgia: In Fibromyalgia as with rheumatoid arthritis, AMA is a main element that causes the ailment. This doesn’t mean the conditions are the same, but it does mean they have the same root cause.  Ama is the build up of toxic waste from undigested food. Udvartana (powder or warm oil massage) reduces kapha (access mucus) and ama of the body, so it  can be the best therapy for reducing symptoms and inflammation of the joints and muscles.
Udvartana is a beautifully relaxing but incredibly therapeutic massage that is traditional to Indian healthcare. Udvartana does not resemble conventional massage at all. It’s correct name Ruksha Udvartana is more advantageous in the ailment such as rigidity with feeling of heaviness, joint tenderness with redness, etc.
Udvartana is an amazing treatment for the alleviation of symptoms & sometimes cure of Fibromyalgia.
