On the right path?

On the right path?

Does the path you’re on feel right?

A good indiction that something is “wrong” in your life or the path is not leading you in the “right” direction would be feeling fearful, depressed or pessimistic.

When you’re on the “right” path you will know as you will feel enthusiastic, optimistic or content. Doing what you need to do, being who you really are brings out the best in us all.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to sit with your thoughts, feel them, see them and most importantly “hear” them.

Ayurvedic dry-brushing, called garshana (pronounced gar-shun-uh), promotes lymphatic cleansing and is a powerful way to support the removal of ama (cellular waste products) from the body. Garshana is traditionally done using raw silk or linen gloves, though many prefer to use a natural bristle body brush. This technique is recommended for people who have signs of ama, which may include fatigue, sluggishness, feeling physical or mental dullness, constipation, and a taxed immune system.

Dry brushing is also an excellent practice for the kapha time of year, the season of spring. During the spring months, snow is melting, water has saturated the earth, and flower pollen is carried on the breeze. This is the time of year when kapha can begin to accumulate in the lymph or the sinuses and create stagnation or respiratory congestion. Dry brushing helps to stimulate kapha in the body and encourage movement and drainage of excess mucus.

It is important to do abhyanga (Ayurvedic self-oil massage) after dry brushing. Organic cold pressed sesame oil is a good place to start. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC carriers a wide variety of self-oil massage oils, including, sesame, Vata, Pitta, Kapha, and detox oil for your convenience.

Guidelines for Garshana—The Traditional Ayurvedic Dry Massage

Skin brushing is best done in the morning before bathing, with dry skin that is free from lotion or oil

Make sure the room where the massage will be done is a comfortable temperature
Stand in the bathtub/shower or on a towel to avoid getting flaky skin on the floor

Using gloves or a brush, massage vigorously to stimulate the skin and lymph

Keep the direction of the stroke always toward the heart

Use circular strokes on the stomach and joints (shoulders, elbows, knees, wrists, hips, and ankles), and long sweeping strokes on the arms and legs (toward the heart)

Massage from the feet upward, continuing to the torso and on to the neck

Massage from the hands to the shoulders

Massage the stomach and buttocks in circular clockwise motions

Apply light pressure where the skin is thin or sensitive and firm pressure on thicker areas like the bottoms of the feet

Ayurveda Massage ~

Ayurveda Massage ~

The ancient wisdom passed on as Ayurveda text stipulates Ayurveda massage as comparable to oiling of the wheels of a chariot, which augments the working and benefits the chariot.

Similar is the effect of Ayurveda massage therapy on the human body. Ayurveda massages render thorough relaxation to the mind and the central nervous system. Also, when Ayurveda massage is undertaken customarily, this simple practice lays down the foundation of strong immune system.

Are you present when you eat?

Are you present when you eat?

When was the last time you pulled out a chair at your table and enjoyed your meal? Can’t recall?

Are you experiencing gas, heartburn or indigestion? Through the lens of Ayurveda it is not so much about what you eat as it is to being mindful (present) when you eat.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing has a few tips to help you get back on track and to view food as medicine…

~ Stop
~ Breath
~ Prepare foods that are in season
~ Use spices to help your digestive fires
~ Set the table
~ Turn off all electronics
~ Eat your heaviest meal between 12 – 2 pm
~ Smile

You are not what you eat but what you digest and that includes your site and hearing.
