About the author :

Harish Johari (1934-1999) was a distinguished North Indian author, Tantric scholar, poet,musician, composer, artist, and gemologist who held degrees in philosophy and literature and made it his life's work to introduce the culture of his homeland to the West.

Here is a hot link to a web site dedicated to Harish Johari's work that was set up by his students. sanatansociety.com/artists_authors/aa_harish_johari.htm


Ayurvedic Massage is the first book on the subject, and the first new massage therapy introduced to the West since shiatsu. One of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, Ayurveda views the human being as intimately connected with the environment and all other life forms. Ayurvedic massage works on both the physical and mental levels, transmitting a life-giving energy that assists all systems of the body to repair and renew themselves. Practitioners concentrate on the marmas, subtle energy points that respond to gentle physical manipulation, and work with the needs of the different body types. The author guides both the novice and experienced practitioner through each step in the full body massage and explains which oils work best for particular body types.

•   Includes massage techniques for expectant mothers and their babies.

•   Outlines techniques and natural remedies for treating specific disorders, including arthritis, rheumatism, sciatica, and insomnia.

•   Offers a complete guide to the traditional forty-day beauty treatment as practiced in India, and includes recipes for massage oils, facial creams, and beautifying clay baths.

 

Yoga Journal

"For Harish Johari—artist, composer, chef, teacher, tantric devotee—desire is the brush, and the five senses are the palette."

East West Journal

"Harish Johari served as guide to Richard Alpert (Baba Ram Dass) on his initial excursion into mystic India and continues his vocation of bridging the East/West gap. A true renaissance man, this distinguished north Indian poet, sculptor, and musician holds degrees in philosophy and literature."

Massage Magazine

"In Ayurvedic Massage, author Harish Johari combines a variety of cultural, yogic and Ayurvedic concepts together to spin his tale about massage. In doing so he is able to bring to light the concept of marmas (pressure points) and speculate on how these antecedents of Chinese acupuncture points may be helpful in stimulating the body's own healing powers."

Aromatic Thymes

"Johari writes about this complex subject in a simple and easy-to-follow manner."

Massage Therapy Journal

"Harish Johari's Ayurvedic Massage is an informative and easy-to-read introduction to the world of oil massage as daily ritual, exercise, relaxation, preventative, and healing practice."

Mirka Knaster

"Ayurvedic Massage offers massage therapists a taste of an approach they might want to pursue through more training. It can be a source of enlivening your present practice with a different perspective. An accessible introduction that is well worth reading, with instructions massage therapists could easily follow."
