Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy of health and medicine that originates from then subcontinent. The name â€˜Ayurvedaâ€™ consists of two words from the Sanskrit language: Ayur meaning â€˜lifeâ€™ and Veda meaning â€˜knowledgeâ€™. Ayurveda, or â€˜the knowledge of lifeâ€™, emphasizes harmony of body, mind and spirit. Our certified Ayurveda physician and experienced therapists provide a professional and personalised approach for everyone, from Ayurveda believers to sceptics. Basic Philosophy A central concept of Ayurvedic medicine is the Tri-dosha theory. The three doshas derive from the Five Elements (earth, water, fire, air and space) and their related properties. Vata is composed of space and air, Pitta of fire and water, and Kapha of earth and water. The doshas express patterns of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics. Everyone embodies all three doshas but usually one or two types dominate each of us. Health exists when our doshas are balanced. When one dosha becomes aggravated, such as due to stress, an imbalance may occur resulting in changed physical and mental health. The objective of Ayurvedic treatments is to bring our doshas into equilibrium. This is achieved through daily treatments, including massages, a diet designed for each dosha-type, as well as meditation and Yoga.
