(Marcus Valerius Martialis- Latin poet from Hispania (the Iberian Peninsula), 40-103)

This was shot along the Ganges at Venimadhava ghat in Varanasi (Benaras) on a Sunday morning.
Those young men were having traditional ayurvedic massage from each other.
Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine that was developed in the Indian subcontinent hundreds of years ago.
Ayurvedic massage therapy does not provide a complete therapeutic cure but it helps the organism to receive nitrient material from within the body and to expel toxins.
Certain ailments related to the muscles, ligaments and nervous system can be completely healed through good ayurvedic massage therapy, it is also an ideal remedy for pain.
The practisioner mostly works with the knowledge of the “marmas” or Indian pessure points.
