Foot Massage

Padabhyanga is Ayurvedic foot massage (Pada=foot and Abhyanga=massage) which is soothing, revitalizing, calming and balancing various disturbances of the autonomic nervous system. The foot is the part of the body where we have got numerous nerve endings and these considered to be the vital areas.
