Find relaxation during competition of Commonwealth Games
Posted on Thursday 16 September 2010
In anticipation of India's Commonwealth Games this October, spas in the capital city are adding ayurvedic massages to their menus.
Available for both players and tourists on Delhi holidays, the ancient Indian treatment uses special oils to stimulate the body and is said to help relax muscles and help improve conditions causing pain.
"It is an ancient Indian system of preventive healthcare," Megha Dinesh of Aura at the Park told the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS). "It is a medical science which teaches us how to be healthy and lead a long and fruitful life."
The Commonwealth Games are an international event consisting of several different sports. The many countries included are members of the Commonwealth of Nations. India expects more than 7,000 people from 53 countries to participate in the games, according to IANS.
Some spas have introduced a special treatment specifically to attract male players and tourists, which involves using seashells to massage the body instead of hands.
Delhi will be home to the multinational sports event from October 3 through 14, and the new spa services will be available on the first day.
