What is AYURVEDA?
Ayurveda, in Sanscrit literally means “the science of life”. It is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. It promotes prevention and longevity and it is the oldest and most holistic medical system that exists today. Ayurveda sees everything in the universe, including human beings, as composed of five elements, namely SPACE, AIR, FIRE, WATER, EARTH. These five elements in turn combine with each other to give rise to three bio-physical forces or “DOSHAS” – VATA (Air & Space or Ether), PITTA (Fire & Water) & KAPHA (Water & Earth). The secret of good health is achieving the perfect balance of doshas for your body type.
Massage is a very important preventative and curative practice in Ayurveda.
