Ayurvedic Foot Massage

The art of Ayurvedic Foot Massage, or Padabhyanga, includes a combination of various massage techniques, the use of oils with Kasa bowl work (small metal bowl composed mainly of copper, and minor amounts of tin) and Marma (Acupressure) Therapy. Massaging the feet is akin to massaging the entire body according to Ayurveda and Reflexology. The massage is done with the client down on a massage table, fully clothed.  Massage techniques are also performed on the arms and hands to start.
