the mother of all healing therapies

Ayur veda

Ayurveda, the “mother of all healing therapies“, has been practiced for over 5,000 years and is considered to be the basis for all natural medicine. „Ayur” means „life“ and „Veda” means “knowledge” – Ayurveda provides the essential knowledge needed to live a long, healthy and happy life.

Ayurvedic philosophy is based on a holistic way of thinking. The universe is reflected in the microcosm of „humans“. Body, mind and spirit are seen as one unit. The body is considered to be the „temple of the soul“, and its wellbeing is essential for mental growth and self-development.

In Ayurveda, all treatments and recommendations for increasing vitality, life satisfaction and immunity against disease depend on each person’s individual constitution. The five natural elements are present in different proportions in each individual, depending upon their constitution.

Ayurveda defines three organic energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha (the so-called Doshas). Each dosha is in turn composed of the five natural elements: Vata (ether and air) is the principle of movement, Pitta (fire and water) is the thermal principle and Kapha (earth and water) is the principle of stability.

Ayurvedic treatments are always tailored to a person’s individual dosha: We use specially selected oils and provide personal recommendations based on your individual constitution.

General recommendations to our Ayurveda clients:

  • Do not sit in direct sun or strong wind after the treatment. Wear head covering and dress warmly.
  • Make sure that you do not schedule any important meetings after the treatment, and enjoy the time to relax.
  • Drink plenty of water (preferably lukewarm) to aid in detoxification.
  • The oil should be washed away with warm water and no soap, latest 2 hours after the treatment.
  • Please do not wash with cold water so the skin pores will remain open for detoxification.
