The Garshan massage is an ayurvedic massage
and is usually carried out with wool, raw silk or terry towels. It is not made use of any kinds of oil or herbs during the massage. The kind of massage one receives depends on the constitution type of the guest and has a nourishing, activating effect. The top skin cells are removed during the massage. This causes a peeling effect and ensures soft skin. Blood circulation and metabolism are stimulated, the lymph flow is improved and fatigue is counteracted.
