Ayurveda, the science of life:
Ayurveda is all about living life to the full and keeping yourself on top form - whatever life throws at you.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a life system encompassing meditation, exercise, diet and therapies based on ones individual Dosha (constitution). It is an ancient lifestyle practice which aims to create harmony within the body. Practised widely in India, it works on the belief that all life forms have a "Dosha" - a unique mix of energies known as "Vata", "Pitta" and "Kapha", similar to that of the elements. Vata is a composite of the elements air and ether, Pitta is a composite of the elements fire and water and kapha is a composite of the elements of water and earth. A person's Dosha determines the kind of lifestyle that is balancing and healthy for them, including the sorts of food they should eat and the amount and type of exercise they should do.
What is Ayurvedic massage good for?
When combined with other Ayurvedic principles (eating a range of food prescribed by one's Dosha, for example, or exercising at certain times of the day), the massage is designed to:
- detoxify and cleanse
- boost the effectiveness of the immune system
- keep healthy people in good health
- help those with medical conditions to improve their overall wellbeing.
