Perfectly in tune with the newly awakened mantra of Return to Nature, Ayurvedic Herbal Massage brings to you one of the oldest-known therapies for rejuvenating the body, toning the muscles, improving blood circulation, repairing worn-out tissues, removing toxins and knocking off fat. The medicinal value of the herbal oils used in Ayurvedic Massage has multifarious advantages over normal massage.

Full body Massage; focused massage for the head, neck, ears and nose; therapeutic massages and a Self-Massage programme, this book offers all these in a format comprising easy to follow step-by-step instructions and photographs.

Catering not only to those with a proclivity to health problems, the book is for everyone interested in a non-drug, non-invasive Feel Fit-Stay Fit state of body and mind.
