Cleanse and detox­ify with ayurveda

Style Magazine - - Experts - BY CAMILLA HALL, CHIEF MACHU PICCHU

Have you been feel­ing over­whelmed, lethar­gic or emo­tion­ally drained re­cently?

It may be an in­di­ca­tion of an im­bal­ance, re­quir­ing you to detox!

Detox­ing needs not be ex­pen­sive or time con­sum­ing.

Mas­sag­ing with es­sen­tial oils can be one sim­ple and ef­fec­tive rem­edy.

We can cleanse and pu­rify with Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is an an­cient In­dian holis­tic health sys­tem that looks to­wards na­ture and the com­bi­na­tions of el­e­ments (doshas) for cause and ef­fect.

Im­bal­anced doshas may re­sult in a va­ri­ety of men­tal up­heaval:

– Air & Ether – Spaced out, over­whelmed, con­fused, anx­ious.

frank­in­cense or jas­mine – Fire & Wa­ter – Ag­i­tated, fiery tem­per­a­ment, anger, one-tracked mind.

lemon­grass or vanilla – Wa­ter & Earth – Dull, slug­gish, de­pressed, sleepy, emo­tion­ally and men­tally fa­tigued. Es­sen­tial oil: eu­ca­lyp­tus or pep­per­mint

Nat­u­ral reme­dies may in­clude the use of es­sen­tial oils (stated above) dur­ing a mas­sage, sooth­ing one’s ner­vous sys­tem.

Mas­sages not only feel amaz­ing, but they also en­hance cir­cu­la­tion, in­crease mo­bil­ity/flex­i­bil­ity and stim­u­late lym­phatic drainage, there­fore boost­ing one’s im­mu­nity, ton­ing the or­gans and detox­i­fy­ing the en­tire bod­ily sys­tem.

Teamed with es­sen­tial oils, the ther­a­peu­tic ben­e­fits of a mas­sage are ten­fold, leav­ing you feel­ing re­vi­talised for sum­mer!
