A few Ayurvedic massage parlors claim that Ayurvedic massage will relieve all the deep muscle knots in the body. This is a misleading claim.
It is making people with lipoma can be cured just with an Ayurvedic massage. Because lipoma mimics as if there are muscle knots. Ayurvedic massage, with massage oils and massage powders are really helpful in many ways. In many health conditions, massage is used in Ayurvedic treatment to -
- To relieve muscle pain,
- To relax muscles and mind
- To strengthen ligaments, joints and tendons.
- To improve skin quality and skin complexion.
But it does not relieve any muscle knots as such.
