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 recognized as such by the OMS ( WHO: world health organization).
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.
Ayurvedic massages are an integral part of ayurvedic medicine in India. It is also considered as a sacred practice. Ayurvedic massages not only invigorate and relax the body but also works on energies for the body to find balance and integrity.
