My first intention was to seek relief from tension and relaxation. What I found, moreover, was a deep state of self-observation and an awareness of the harmonious movement between mind and body.
The Method Kusum Modak℠
It’s ultimately a dialogue that involves surrender and receptivity, self-knowledge and respect. Mixing the procedures of traditional Indian massage with the postures inspired by Yoga, the Kusum Modak Method – Ayurvedic Yoga Therapeutic Massage℠ is respected by specialists in health and well-being across the world and recognized as one of the most comprehensive therapeutic techniques.
With wisdom, master Kusum Modak united two millenarian Indian sciences to create her own method, capable of treating different diseases and preserving health. The complete method counts on over 120 manoeuvres, which improves our physiological system, and generates bodily, mental, and emotional transformations.
Slow and deep touches characterise the method and in combination with natural oils and powders extracted from the medicinal plant cálamo, professionals perform deep stimulation using a combination of glides, traction, and pressure with both the hands and feet. This stimulates the circulation and prepares the musculature and joints for the extensions, flexions, and torsions.
This intense work, combined with conscious breathing, bestows a state of meditation and recuperation of our vital energy, also known as prana. An indescribable sensation of well-being swells when tense muscles relax, the joints gain space, and the mind is quiet.
At the end of the 1980’s, master Kusum met the Indian master Limaye, an influential propagator of the traditional and popular Indian massage, derived from Ayurveda. It was in the simplicity and breadth of knowledge of this mentor that set master Kusum onto the path of corporal therapy and the care of others.
It promotes relaxation, restores mind-body communication, improves focus and concentration, and combats stress and its symptoms, such as insomnia, impatience, apathy, and depression.
It favors the process of self-knowledge, promotes the alignment of the energetic and emotional centers, awakens self-confidence and self-esteem.
I sought the service because I had a strong pain in my lower back. After the first session I already felt great pain relief and a sense of well-being throughout my body. I noticed more body awareness, which helped me to be more aware of my posture during my work. The treatment did me a lot of good.
