From the Publisher

Massage, done according to the natural laws of human anatomy and energy flow, offers the most pleasurable benefit of all daily practices. Regular massage vibrates and energizes the skin, muscles and nerves simultaneously and helps the body become light, active and full of vitality.

Body heat and vitality increase as the heart and circulatory system open up to provide fresh oxygen and energy to all parts of the system while simultaneously flushing out waste gases and chemicals.

Ancient Indian scriptures which deal with health and massage say:
“Diseases do not go near one who massages his feet before sleeping, just as snakes do not approach eagles.”

There is new acceptance of massage nowadays. In the West people are especially interested in this art as a rejuvenator and vitalizer. There is much literature available on various kinds of massage from different parts of the world, but there is no book about the ancient Indian system of massage where the art is ever popular. In India you can find people massaging people on beaches, on the banks of rivers, and in market places apart from the privacy of homes and wrestling places (akharas). Massage of children is widespread in Indian practically every child and the mother of each new born infant gets regular massage, as one gets foods. Massage is part of inherent rituals in Indian life and in many states it becomes a significant ritual before marriage. The purpose of this publication is to portray simply and factually some of the principles, techniques, beauty and benefits of massage. Special formulae have been incorporated to enhance various therapeutic values.

Harish Johari (1934-1999) was an artist; a musicologist; a dramatist; a philosopher; and a translator. He was also a physiologist, a historian and an expert cinematographer. He was revered for his art of story telling and for his beautiful sculptures. He has published several books, which have been translated into several languages. Employing a unique medium, he executed extraordinary works on paper and silk, and eighteen of his paintings have been published by Verkerke, Holland.
