This ancient massage actually has its origins in India. The founder of this art was an Indian Doctor, Jivaka Kumar Bhaka, who was a contemporary of Buddha. The massage is conducted in light clothing, on a special mattress lying on the floor. It is a full body massage, during which the masseur uses steady and precisely-directed pressing actions on the pressure points of the body, combined with passive stretching movements. Massaging these pressure points removes energy blockages and removes pain in the joints, spine and muscles. The massage also helps strengthen the nervous system, increases mobility/ flexibility, and improves blood and lymph circulation.
