What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda or the “science of life” is a holistic system of preventive medicine and health care, which was developed over 5000 years ago and still practiced widely in India today, alongside Western medicine.

It is the result of a combination of herbal medicine, Hindu philosophy, daily experiences and scientific observations.

 

There are several aspects to this traditional medical system that include therapeutic herbs, diet and nutrition, life-style counselling, healing music, meditation and yoga – the sister science of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is all about balance – balancing our own, unique personal nature with the elements around us, and teaches us to spot our own imbalances before they manifest themselves as disease. Like its sister science, Yoga, it is both an art and a science and the two systems can support each other very well when we learn a little more about our own constitution, or Dosha. Ayurveda is one of the tools that can help us on our path to personal health and wellbeing in our modern, over-stretched lives.

Working with Moira, she will help you understand what perfect health is for you and we will get you there through observing a wholesome diet suitable for your personal constitution and the season, ensuring our lifestyle and daily routine also support a balanced state of mind and using appropriate therapies such as  Abhyanga (massage with oil or powder), and pain treatments with herbal poultices and using oils. With just simple lifestyle adjustments such as adopting a regular yoga and meditation practice, you will be amazed at the vast improvement in health, wellbeing and energy levels you can achieve. So, what will we look at?
