Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of preventive health care dating back more than 5,000 years. The name means “knowledge of life” - as “Ayur” means life and “Ved” means knowledge. It’s one of India’s main traditional systems of medicine (the other being South India’s Siddha medicine).

imageAccording to Ayurveda, bodily health is determined by three biological principles, called doshas: Vata, which regulates movement; Pitta, which regulates metabolism; and Kapha, which regulates structure.

The aim is to reach a complete balance of the body, mind and spirit (including the emotions and psychology) on all levels. To do this, Ayurveda focuses on longevity, rejuvenation and self-realization therapies through herbs, diet, exercise, yoga, massage, aromas, tantras, mantras and meditation.
