Ayurveda: a medicine, a philosophy, a lifestyle.
Ayurveda means ‘science of life’, it is a sacred therapeutic science that has been used for more than 5000 years. It is India’s official medicine and has been recognised as such by the OMS ( WHO: world health organisation).
According to ayurveda, all illnesses are caused by unbalanced doshas (vatta, pitta, kapha), which are accountable for bad foods and an inadequate lifestyle.
However, everything we do has its particular dosha characteristics. This way each person can find balance and harmony.
All is energy: theory of the five elements
Its principles are based on the theory of the five elements, which correspond to the five states of matter. They are the basis of universal energy, they show that life’s principles are in constant evolution. Those five elements combine in various ways to create doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) which are three fundamentals of our constitution. Each person acquires, from the moment they are conceived, a combination of those five elements which represents their ideal health. However, one’s physical and mental environment might be challenged by outside elements and each of us has to make their way through a fragile balance.
The body is the soul’s temple
In India, caring for the soul is achieved by firstly caring for the body. Massages are an act of love and attention which through touch will nourish the body, the senses and the soul.
Massages communicate with consciousness through the five senses and help us refocus on our inner selves.
