Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
1. Kerala massage is palliation procedure while ayurveda massage is purification procedure.
2. ayurveda panchkarma except anuvasan vasti' causes 'Langhan' i.e. loss of weight while kerala ayurvedic massage produces 'brihan' i.e gain of weight.
3. most Important aspect is that while in Ayurveda Panchkarma there are fixed formulation for a given disease, in kerala ayurvedic massage medicine is prepared individually for patient disease, thus you can choose kerala massage for good relief, depending upon the duration of therapy and number of days of treatment.

As long as you don’t have any major problem and are still young with just muscle pain then it is alright. If you have slip disk or something then you better ask your doctor before you get massage done and also tell the massage fellow that you have what kind of problem.
Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Manish Rijhwani's  Response
yes it works very well
only thing is that you should get it done from a good Siddha or an Ayurvedic physician who is providing PANCHKARMA Facilities

I got it done once just simply. It was very nice and relaxing. But I had no back pain or problem but still I guess no harm in trying all kinds of treatment no? Sometime the treatment that is simple gives very good relief like oil massage. No harm in trying once

Hello,
I am a 23 year old female with a comprimised immune system. I have had a UTI for a couple of weeks that is almost completely gone now but I still have the lower abdominal pain and back pain. My most recent partner has told me that i need to be tested for chlymydia as he may have it (because of WBC's found in his urine) and thinks he has contracted it from me and is waiting for his results. I'm pretty sure I dont have it but I will be getting tested as well. My main question is is massage contraindicated if I do have it as I am currently in massage school and we're doing deep tissue? Also what are the chanes of his WBC's being from a UTI since I have one? Thank you.
