What is Ayurvedic Medicine?
Ayurveda originates from India, it is literally translated as ‘the knowledge of life’. It uses diet and lifestyle alterations, herbal treatments, and therapies such as abhyanga (oil massage) to prevent and treat illness, as well as for general relaxation.
What are the basic principles of Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of the five elements.
These elements are represented in humans by three ‘doshas’, types of energies, called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When the levels of these doshas in the body become imbalanced, disease and discomfort can occur.
Every individual has a unique constitution, and our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas. Ayurveda suggests individual lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help re-balance the body.
Is Ayurveda right for me?
Ayurveda can be for anyone – ranging from people suffering from chronic disease, to those who simply need to unwind with one of our relaxing therapies.
