How to make an ayurvedic massage successful

When I arrived in India I could not stand massages. But since only fools don’t change their minds, I learned to appreciate them...        

So… the recipe for a successful ayurvedic massage is: fresh mosquito bites (24 hours max). It feels SO good !!
A small grain of sand lying around can also spice up the session nicely!

However, the drop of oil flowing down the thigh or in the ear, it is up to the level of Japanese torture!

Put some oil!

 A colleague of mine recently went to France for the first time.
At the end of his training he was offered a bottle of olive oil.

  • Me: Oh nice gift! Have you used it? (Doubting but he would not know what to do with it.)
  • Him: Yes yes. (That’s it? No details? What the hell did he do with that oil??!!)
  • Me: Oh and how?
  • Him: As massage oil!! My back was so sore after the eight-hour flight home!
  • Me: Laughing.
  • Him: No one in my family likes it nor knows how to cook with it.
  • Me: Yes. I'm not laughing at you! I just realise I must have done a lot of things that must look funny ot Indians too ;)

I go to buy an oil lamp. The dealer explains to me how it works: "You can put any oil, even olive oil!"

  More and end ...

One day, long ago, in Pune, I wanted to buy coconut oil for cooking. So I went to the supermarket. Being unable to find it, I finally asked for help. The guy took me to the cosmetics department, gave me a small blue bottle of coconut oil and swore to God that it worked as well for cooking as for hair! I was not THAT convinced but I had no choice ... It did work.
