Ayurvedic Massages

Like Ayurveda, the ayurvedic massages  have become fashionably. They bring an exotic touch in beauty salons, hotels and centres of well-being where they are presented among the range of various care with some unknown names. Nowadays, it is possible to learn the techniques of a massage on one or two weekends, allowing to practise them in the family and it is very well.
