I am a massage therapist and researching the techniques of Mongolian Massage and the similarities/differences between it and Indian Ayurvedic massage and Tibetan Massage
For example, what oils would be used traditionally? Would the oils contain herbs?
What particular 'moves' would be used? In Indian/Tibetan Ayurveda, long smooth strokes are used on the limbs and circular strokes on the joints. Is this the same with Mongolian Massage? I have heard in Mongolia massage a lot of figure of 8 moves are used.
Is a herbal powder always used at the end of the massage as it is in Tibet?
I am also very interested to learn more about the massage Mongolian warriers used to reduce fear before they went into battle.
I would be very grateful if anyone with any information, or who knows someone who might be able to help me would email me.
