Ayurveda is a combination of science and philosophy which supports physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. The word comes from the Sanskrit Ayur - meaning "life" and Veda - meaning "knowledge" or "truth" which transliterates to mean "Knowledge of Life / Science of Longevity".
This system emerged more than five thousand years ago in India based on the holy scriptures, the Vedas. Ayurveda is the development and maintenance of a healthy life by observing the actions of nature and the universe, its evolution and creation; seeking the root of the imbalance to treat each individual in essence, and utilising preventive therapies and various methods of detoxification involving medicinal herbs, massage with medicated oils and herbal powders, steam application and numerous other procedures.
An Ayurvedic therapy consultation uses a set of measurement tools to assess the physical and mental biotype of the individual.
Through a series of questions and an analysis of the pulse, eyes, nails, tongue and observations of other organic imbalances, a diagnosis is made.After diagnosis a recommended individualized treatment plan will be given, taking into account the dysfunctions (disease states) of the body and the prevention of possible malfunctions; this leads to a diet plan according to the specific Ayurvedic type and prescriptions of Ayurvedic medical herbs.
A consultation also includes guidance on the types of food and flavours which are more favorable to the person; the seasons and colors that help maintain a psycho-social and spiritual balance of the individual; the best type of exercise for their mental and physical characteristics; meditation, essential oils, crystals, etc. that are best suited to create health and balance within that individual.
Ayurveda Classical massage is a massage therapy performed with specific rhytmic movements about the body in order to nourish the skin, detoxify the body, relax the muscles, lubricate the joints, calm the nervous system and revitalize the tissues. It can assist in prevention against rheumatism, minimize stress, melancholy and depressive states such as anxiety and insomnia and correct body posture as it revitalizes, tones and relaxes the muscle tissues.
Marma Therapy is a massage of the energy points of the body, through which Prana (vital energy) must flow.
When all 107 marma points are stimulated with pressure, we are affecting the Chakras, contributing to the vital energiy's ability to flow freely through the body without blockages: thus maintaining the health of each individual. Energy blockages can result from various factors such as: physical injuries, poor posture, past trauma, poor diet, accumulated stress, or any disease likely to interfere with the flow of prana through the body.
