Ancient Eastern Healing Method.
Based on over five thousand years of experience originating from India, Ayurveda is a science that embraces a holistic approach. It encompasses the trinity of body, mind, and spirit, considering them as a unified whole and emphasizing the maintenance of their harmony.
The literal translation of Ayurveda is “the science of life.”
Its goal is to prevent and treat diseases by maintaining the balance of the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. This is achieved through the regular practice of various exercises, as well as the application of herbs and natural remedies.
Traditional Ayurvedic therapies and massage treatments greatly contribute to the creation of harmony, alongside movement, proper nutrition, and mental practices.
How do Ayurvedic treatments work?
Ayurveda is based on the teachings of the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, earth), which together form the universe.
These elements are connected to our senses and have an impact on our entire being, “sustaining life.” In a healthy body, these elements are in balance, while the disruption of harmony leads to the deterioration of our physical, mental, and emotional states.
Based on this understanding, Ayurveda categorizes people into three different body types (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) according to the principles and energies associated with the five ancient elements. Each body type has its own specific preferences for treatments, therapeutic substances used during treatments, and other daily activities such as diet and exercise.
Therefore, the goal of Ayurvedic treatments is to restore the disturbed balance using methods suitable for each body type, thereby restoring and maintaining our well-being in the future.
“The body is closely interconnected with our emotional state. Let’s take the simple example that if we worry a lot, we start experiencing headaches or stomach cramps. It is impossible to separate how our soul feels from the symptoms our body exhibits.”
