Samvahanam is aimed both at those who already have experience of ayurveda and want to learn new massage techniques that to those who do not know Ayurveda, are an operator of well-being and health. The course is recognized as an annual update by health insurance companies. 

Samvahanam is an ayurvedic massage for the whole body suitable to promote blood and lymphatic circulation and to induce a very deep relaxation. For the practice of this massage we will use oils from the Ayurvedic tradition that we will also learn to prepare. Samvahana has a calming and balancing and purifying effect and is therefore suitable for all constitutions (doshas). Samvahana is the first therapeutic treatment of Ayurvedic medicine and is also the basis that allows then to practice other important treatments such as: Pinda Potali, Pichu and Phenakam.

Benefits: the extraordinary effects of Samvahana therapy help to "awaken" the whole body, improving the circulation, stimulating and strengthening the nervous, lymphatic and immune systems, rejuvenating the tissues, improving the structure and complexion of the skin and leading to a clear improvement of body shape. This massage can help relieve pain and fatigue while synchronized movements induce a meditative state. Samvahanam helps to stabilize body, mind and spirit, resolving energy and emotional blockages and promoting detoxification and purification of the body. Nerves and nadis (energy channels) are activated, stimulating the flow of blocked energy.


The teacher demonstrates the Samvahanam massage technique on a student. During the demonstration the teacher highlights the specificities related to the technique demonstrated by pointing out to the students the effects that are observed on the subject receiving the treatment. The subject himself collaborates by sharing the experience verbally.

Afterwards, the students alternate in practice, exchanging the treatment. The teacher follows each individual student and intervenes with corrections and, if necessary, further explanations.

At the end, or when all the students have given and received the treatment, a sharing is carried out in order to make the experiences of each student usable to the whole group.

During the two days of the course, each student gives and receives Samvahanam treatment twice.



Participants will receive an "Ayurveda Monaci Eranti" certificate.


The course is limited to a maximum of 14 students
