The Massage cachemiri is resulting from the tantric tradition Shiva ïte whose existence goes back to the age of the Valley of the Indus, 2500 years before our era. Cachemiris developed this tradition at the beginning of our era. It gave place to a great richness of philosophical, poetic writings and scientists between the VIIIe and the XIIIe century which culminated with the writings of Abhinavagupta, author of the “Tantraloka” at the 11th century.
The Massage does not have direct therapeutic aiming but only tends to release and bring a feeling of wellbeing, called “spanda”. A whole treaty the “Spandakarika” is devoted to the spanda, written by Vasugupta at the 9th century. The spanda dissolves the perception of the duality and leads to a extatic experiment of the world.
Technically, the massage is founded on the yogic knowledge of the subtle bodies and the experiment of the 108 marmas or energy points, similar to the points of Acupuncture, and which are connected by the movements of the masseurs. The Massage request before a a whole presence this is why it belongs to the Yoga. During two hours, an complete absence of distraction, intention and a capacity to make continuous motions, extremely slow which will cover the totality of the body of the patient. The use of the hot Huile of Sésame is recommended. The masseur sat in lotus (cross legs) massed is in the axis, its legs pass from share and others of the bust of the masseur who can thus reach all the parts of the body without moving and losing the contact. One starts by massing the face of the body, then the two sides successively before massing the back. The masseur by a simple technique makes rock the body of the patient from one position to another. The massage ends in a projection of the body of the patient in space by means of the legs and of the arm, massed is more constant only by the knees and the hands of the masseur and fleet without contact with the ground.
