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 of this volume. 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 book can be considered to be the authoritative text on Ayurvedic Massage Therapy in the field and is sure to be a classic work referred to by ayurvedic massage practitioners around the world.

Massage has a fascinating history dating back 4000 years, and evidence of the beneficial effects of massage on animals is not difficult to find; we need only look at animals to understand the importance they place on the use of massage through mutual (allogrooming), or self-grooming. Among dogs, an individual suffering from a sore, or some other form of injury, will often have the affected area roughly licked by another pack member. This action, which resembles rubbing, is, in effect, a form of muscle massage. The techniques explained and demonstrated in this valuable book – which incorporate a ‘trouble shooting’ guide for problems when working on your dog – should assist you in improving your dog’s health, and help you gain a greater awareness of his or her overall condition. Other techniques are also used by fully trained and qualified canine myotherapists or massage therapist practitioners, but the techniques included here are safe to use without such specialist knowledge. Also included is information about how the dog ‘works’ in relation to what effects massage has; plus the clear, specially-commissioned photos and technique descriptions explain how you can be so much more in touch with the health of your canine companion, as well as establish a bond of trust and communication between you.  Includes:  How the dog works • Using your vet • How massage works • How to massage your dog • Massage techniques • Massage exercise and muscular health • Managing muscle repair, incorporating massage • Other techniques • Glossary
