Charaka, the great Ayurvedic Sage wrote the following about the importance of massage 2600 years ago: 'As a pitcher by moistening and an axis of a wheel with lubrication become strong and jerk resistant, so by oil application, the body becomes firm, smooth skinned, free from disturbances of vata and tolerant to physical exercise and exertion. Those who do a regular application of oil on the body do not become much affected due to accidental injuries or strenuous work. With daily application of oil on the body, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong charming and less affected with old age.' This is a genuine book for obtaining practical and authentic knowledge about Ayurvedic massage. It is irritating to see the pictures of naked women in most massage books to make them saleable. Massage is equally important for men and children. Healing massage is as important as other medications to relieve people from suffering. Ayurvedic pressure massage described in this book provides you immediate relief and cures several minor disorders.

About Dr. Verma Along with a doctorate degree in reproduction biology in India, Dr. Verma studied Neurobiology in Paris University and obtained a second doctorate. She pursued advanced research at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda (USA) and the Max-Planck Institute in Freiburg, Germany. At the peak of her career in medical research in a pharmaceutical company in Germany, she realised that the modern approach to health care is basically fragmented and non-holistic. Besides, we are directing all our efforts and resources to cure disease rather than maintaining health. In response, Dr. Verma founded The New Way Health Organisation (NOW) in 1986 to spread the message of holistic living, preventive methods for health care and to promote the use of mild medicine and various self-help therapeutic measures. Dr. Verma has studied Ayurveda in the traditional Guru-shishya style with Acharya Priya Vrat Sharma of the Benares Hindu University for 23 years. Dr. Verma is an ardent researcher and is working hard to compile the living tradition of Ayurveda and spread it in the world through her books. She has published twenty two books on yoga, Ayurveda, Women and Companionship. The books are published in various languages of the world. Besides, she has published numerous scientific articles. Several other books are in preparation. She lectures extensively, teaches in Europe for several months a year, trains students at her two centres in India and gives radio and television programmes. A film on Ayurveda with her was made by German television in 1995 and was shown in 100 countries, in 130 languages. It was the first film on Ayurveda. Dr. Verma has founded Charaka School of Ayurveda to train interested people with genuine Ayurvedic education so that they can further impart the knowledge of Ayurvedic way of life and save people from becoming a victim of charlatanry in Ayurveda. Dr. Verma is doing several research projects on medicinal plants and their combination in the form of remedies.
