Front Cover
Concept Publishing Company, 1992 - Health & Fitness - 192 pages
Though massage is described as a preparatory measure to be administered prior to Panchakarma or the "five specialized therapies" of classical Ayurveda, its utility as an independent and distinct therapuetic measure is well recognized due to its rejuvenating effect on the body and the mind. If an individual desires good health, massage should be incorporated into their everyday routine. In addition, it is invaluable in curing several obstinate and otherwise incurable diseases.
