Understanding the anatomy of the body and their physiological functions, Rekha Chaudhari (SPA expert) has designed new techniques and development to give a revival or modern look to this massage and calling it “The Novel Rope Massage”.
The Rope massage is slowly gaining its place in the world of massage.
As in the olden days, the practice of making the little ones walk over the body of an adult was quite common in India. This technique not only provided relaxation to the tired muscles but was also fun for the doer.
Today, when given a thought to it, that technique was nothing but removal of congested fluid in the muscles due to routine and stressed life, relaxing and toning of the muscles.
One can find this massage being practice in certain places where the practitioner walk, sweep her feet, press and release pressure over the client’s body with the help and support of the one straight rope tied to 2 opposite poles.
Rekha Chaudhari (SPA expert) have identified that in this method balancing practitioner’s weight and pressure over the different part of the body of a person lied become little uncontrollable.
She studied and thought of designing her own equipment and techniques making this massage more effective, tolerable and fun. This equipment had 2 lines of rope attached parallel to the opposite poles where the practitioner can hold both the rope at the same time and can modulate his own body weight to get adjusted with the pressure require by the client’s body and desired without losing his or her balance.

The equipment is portable as it is detachable. So this technique of massage can be carried out in space, close to the nature, not restricting to the close rooms of SPAs. The rope fixed are colored in different shades and have small bells fixed to the rope. The sound of the bells will distract all the negative thoughts making the client’s mind focus on the massage and relaxation.
These sounds also have soothing effect on the mind.
Besides, this technique is also beneficial to the practitioner as one doesn’t have to exert himself or herself over the manipulation of various movements to get the desired results and it also fun listening to the natural chiming of the bells.
