What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the traditional Indian system of natural medicine - in Sanskrit Ayur means life, Veda means science - combining nutritional advice, yoga and massage techniques to preserve wellbeing, delay the signs of ageing and treat illness the natural way.
According to Ayurvedic tradition,the body is an individual combination of 5 elements (space, air, fire, water and earth) which shape person's unique constitution (dosha).
There are three energies known as Dosha and classified as follows:
- Vata Dosha - Ether/Wind Elements
- Pita Dosha - Fire/Water Elements
- Kapha Dosha - Water/Earth Elements
When the constitution is in balance, health is maintained. However, when imbalances occur, discomforts, diseases and premature ageing follow.
The guiding principal of Ayurveda is disease prevention and harmonizing body's rhythm with nature.
One way to create this balance is through Body Marma-Point Massage (in Sanskrit: Marma Abhyanga).
Ayurvedic Body Massage
Ayurvedic Body Massage is a purifying and invigorating therapy which combines traditional Ayurvedic massage techniques and acupressure of Marma points (specific energy centres), promoting healing, releasing physical and emotional blockages, helping to eliminate toxins from the system, regenerating the whole body for renewed health and vitality.
This treatment involves massage with warm organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic sesame oil (or other oil if requested by the client) which can be combined with unique Ayurvedic herbal oils leaving skin naturally revitalized.
