Padabhyanga or feet massage has a very special place within the Ayurvedic tradition. It is commonly practiced as a daily ritual, especially before retiring at night. Feet are very important part in our body, as many nerves from many organs terminate in the feet. So massage helps to strengthen these nerves and restores health to many parts of the body. The marma (vital) points are massaged which gives balance to your doshas and is very helpful for people with insomnia, fatigue and cramps. A (Kansa) bowl is used in the massage routine. The bowl is warmed (preferably in water), and the rounded surface is well oiled before application. The skin surface is rubbed lightly and briskly in circular and lengthwise directions to stimulate circulation and energy flow in the area.
