Highlights : Derived from the combination of two Sanskrit words ‘Ayush’(long life) and ‘veda’(knowledge), ‘Ayurveda’ is a system of traditional medicine indigenous to South Asia. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential. Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. Each individual is unique. You will require different types of treatments to balance your doshas (constitution) - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Ayurveda offers specifically tailored recommendations for every individual, ranging from general lifestyle changes to the treatment of dis-ease (literally, an imbalance within our natural state of “ease”). Since the doshas are used to detect imbalances before the manifestation of dis-ease, Ayurveda is also a complete system of preventative medicine. The doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment. The doshas derive from the Five Elements and their related properties. Vata is composed of Space and Air, Pitta of Fire and Water, and Kapha of Earth and Water. In addition to Ayurveda treatments, the yoga & meditation programs will allow you to get in touch with yourself and to be mindful of your surroundings, thoughts and actions. Further the mineral stone foot therapy will offer better health benefits in controlling blood pressure, response capability, back pain, cardiovascular function, and mood elevation.
