While a number of authors have written on "ayurvedic massage", most of them have not truly integrated the massage techniques into the science of ayurveda with the background and depth of knowledge of the authors in this volume. Dr. Ranade, one of the foremost authorities in the field of ayurveda, along with his co-author Dr. Rawat, himself an ayurvedic educator have integrated the principles of ayurveda at a level that can make the use of massage a serious therapeutic tool for the ayurvedic doctor or health practitioner. Ayurvedic massage has many unique features and advantages compared to many other types of massage therapy. Dramatic results can be obtained when the practitioner has the ability to adapt the massage technique according to body type, age, stage of the disorder or disease, as well as the general health of the digestion and the imbalances present in the client or patient. Most ayurvedic massage texts content themselves with differentiating the technique based on constitutional type of the body alone; while Drs. Ranade and Rawat, with their long-training and experience as professors and educators in the field, are able to provide insight and integration to the diverse aspects of this field to make it truly effective at a deeper level. In addition, they explain the different types of oils or other substances that can be used, as well as the circumstances and manner of determining which one is appropriate in a particular case. They describe how modifications to the stroke and direction of the stroke used can be applied based on the underlying circumstances unique to each client. The readers of this text will gain a background in ayurvedic theory, as well as applied therapy. Ayurvedic massage can be seen as a therapeutic tool in its own right as well as a predecessor to panchakarma treatment. For the first time the important concept of "marma massage" has been explained and described. This technique is extremely valuable and is becoming quite popular among practitioners of ayurveda both in India and abroad. A chapter on "Massage for Specific Diseases" highlights some important disease conditions for which the massage techniques can be very useful.

The book on "Massage for Health and Healing: The Ayurvedic and Spiritual Energy Approach" is a commendable guide to a very important medical aid which reigned with dignity in the past. Though it was neglected for many years, the art of massage has recaptured its central place amongst the forms of healing, prevention of disease, and promoting health. Massage is the oldest of all techniques for relieving pain, shaping the organs, regenerating tissues, and correcting almost all internal malfunctions. Massage has its origin in the natural instincts of animals, handed over to the concious man with a mandate to improve it as far as possible with his old wisdom. Despite advancements in knowledge and complex techniques, massage retains its usefulness and significance even as a method to save a person from immediate death, as in heart failure, breathlessness, and several other fatal ailments. In all kinds of therapeutic approaches, massage alone can maintain certain links. Any method of treatment with a holistic approach cannot leave out massage. Ayurveda upholds its psychosomatic benefits. Sushruta and other texts explain it, classifying various types of massages and instructions on their manipulations and effects. In Ayurveda, the human body constitutes three functional entities, the balance of which maintains health; an upset in this balance increases diseases. The book serves not only as a guide to novice practioners but also as a manual and refresher guide for those who are experienced ayurvedic masseurs. The contents (techniques) of this book will bring relief and better health to those faithfully apply them in their daily lives.

Five thousand years old, Ayurvedic massage has been shown to still the mind and body by lowering metabolic rates and inspiring feelings of peace and calm. Often administered as a part of a three-, five-, or seven-day program, these treatments are an integral part of deep cleansing, rejuvenation, and life-extension Ayurvedic programs called panchakarma or kya kalpa. This book by a noted practitioner features more than 15 of these treatments, each described in step-by-step detail and some synchronized with two therapists for up to two hours in length. It provides the reader with all the tools necessary to begin Ayurvedic treatments as a part of a spa menu or massage therapy program.

It can be used to detoxify, strengthen and revitalize the body, for rejuvenation and relaxation or to release blocked energy. The authors explain the theoretical basis of Marma Therapy, and then provide a detailed, fully illustrated guide to its use. For each Marma point, the authors provide information about its significance, the Ayurvedic element it relates to, the most appropriate oils to use, and what it can be used to treat.

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.
