Brahman is the only truth, the world is unreal, and there is ultimately no difference between Brahman and Atman, individual self. 

A Padabhyanga foot and leg abhyanga massage stimulates the organs of the body and generates a feeling of deep relaxation.                                                                                                                     

This treatment connects you with the basic elements of Ayurveda, massaging one of the main five actions of the body ‘walking, movement’.

Traditional Kanza Bowl

Padabhyanga is a tradition Ayurvedic massage using a kanza bowl and traditional ghee and oils. The Kanza massage bowls are made of a special metal mixture, called kanza. This consists of an amalgam of copper, zinc and tin. The health benefits of Kaash are due to the unique blend of metals which are said to have healing properties in Ayurveda. Copper is said to help lessen the pain and inflammation for clients with painful complaints such as arthritis. Zinc is important in vital functions such as the immune and digestive systems, and tin is another metal which Ayurveda says is helpful in promoting healthy digestion, as well as aiding everyday problems such as headaches and insomnia.

Ghee or oils chosen to help harmonise the client’s balance of doshas play an important part in the treatment as they provide lubrication as well as moisturising the feet.

Like many Ayurvedic treatments, this beautiful foot massage is complex in its potential to increase well-being and promote balance.

Rooted

The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground’ says Lord Buddha.

We are grounded, rooted, secured and belong to Mother Earth when we put our feet on the ground. It is your feet which connect you to the Earth to which you belong to.

Vedic

Eastern spiritual practices, mainly India, believe that our body and soul are connected and embodied in our feet. In Indian culture, therefore, touching, washing and kissing the feet of teachers, elders and parents show love and respect to another body and soul.
