Ayurveda is the worlds oldest holistic healthcare system (Healing system).
It is a comprehensive system of healthcare originating in India over 5,000
years ago. Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy based on deep understanding of
the human body, mind and spirit. Its theories and remedies for a healthy
mind and body have endured for over 5000 years, during which time a wealth
of knowledge and practical experience has been accumulated, confirming the
safety and efficacy of an Ayurvedic way of life. Ayurveda is derived from
two Sanskrit words: ‘Ayur’ meaning life and ‘Veda’ meaning
The aim of ayurveda is in prevention and promoting positive health, beauty
and long life. It encompasses the food we eat, weather, astrology,
crystals, meditation, yoga, exercise, pulse, sound, energy and massage
In our modern world where antibiotics often fail to work and other drugs
have harmful side effects, it is no wonder that many people are seeking out
traditional holistic healing treatments and realising that the mind and body
can work together to achieve wellness and balance.
This special form of massage works on the energy chakras and marma points and is a wonderful way of relieving stress and its effects on the systems of the body.
