Spread a few drops of oil/ghee on your feet, rub gently for 2-10 mins using the smooth surface of a metallic ball, wash with warm water. This massage alleviates anxiety, induces state of relaxation, brings sound sleep, releases stress and tension, improves blood circulation and digestion, rejuvenates the whole body, eradicates pain and improves eye sight.

It’s about imbibing Ayurveda in our day to day lifestyle. There is a certain discipline which we follow on the regular basis and what we call “routine”. For e.g.: Brushing teeth, taking bath, exercise, eating, etc. There are few more such activities which were supposed to a part of our routine as described in Ayurveda. This comes under the umbrella of “Din Charya (Day to day Routine)”. Over a period of time some of the activities of Din Charya have gone missing from our life gradually but their importance hasn’t diminished at all. One such small technique is the foot massagePada Abhyangam”.

Foot Massage

There are many techniques and manipulations in a foot massage but we will focus on the simple practices that can be inculcated in our daily routine. Homemade ghee (clarified butter), Cow’s ghee, sesame oil, mustard oil, olive oil, coconut oil or any other relaxation oil can be used for the foot massage. For daily use Cow’s ghee is considered to be the best.
