What is Ayurveda

'Ayur' means 'life' and 'Veda' means 'knowledge'. Therefore Ayurveda means 'the science of life' (Charaka Samhita).

Ayurveda is a 6000 year old therapeutic system that aims to maintain the health of body, mind and spirit.
Ayurveda shows us that the natural elements—such as the warmth and light of the sun, the air we breathe, and the mineral and plant substances—have an immense therapeutic value. Intelligent use of these gifts of nature, combined with a wholesome diet and a positive mindset, contribute to a healthy and fulfilling life.

About Ayurvedic massage

Ayurveda massage is one of the many pillars of Ayurveda. It is designed to help restore and maintain balance in both body and mind. Over the first module you will discover this gentle, rhythmic massage using a variety of techniques (full body front and full body back) to stimulate and enhance skin tone, detoxify and revitalise the entire body and induce deep relaxation. It uses warm herb-infused oils specifically tailored to individual needs. The combination of herbal oils and gentle warmth makes the massage a deeply restful and rejuvenating experience.

Enable your client to maintain vibrant health

Through Ayurveda massage the herbs in the oils are taken directly into the body in a powerful and relaxing way. The time needed for the oil to be absorbed is given as one 'Matra' which equals approximately three seconds - or the time it takes to blink an eyelid (The essence of Ayurveda by Dr Sanjay Pisharadi).

In Ayurvedic massage, natural herbal oils and powders are applied to the body using a variety of specific techniques. Oils and treatment methods are chosen especially to suit the client’s constitution and skin type, enabling the client to maintain vibrant health and encourage deep healing.
