Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the major traditional healing system in India and has been in existence for about 4500 years. It is a sophisticated, comprehensive system of health, similar to the other great oriental healing systems such as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Ayurveda covers all aspects of health and encourages physical mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. The cornerstone of Ayurveda is that well-being is affected by "prana" and the three doshas or "vital forces" - Vata-Air, Pitta-Fire, Kapha-Earth, which fluctuate and need to be brought into balance. When we are suffering from ill-health the doshas are said to go out of balance and the Ayurvedic practitioner can help to re-balance them and bring the body and mind back into a state of health.

Ayurveda aims to restore health, or doshic balance through diet, yoga, breathing and relaxation techniques, purifying techniques, herbal remedies, and massage.
