WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

Ayurveda is a medicinal system born in India. The science of life, as its name translates from Sanskrit, is considered the mother of all medicines. The first recordings of this medicinal system are found in Vedic texts of ancient India, dating more than 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda is based on the principle that our body functions are directly related to the elements of nature. Just as it is outside it is inside. Ayurveda helps to restore balance in the physiology, eliminates toxins and impurities, and awakens the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Simple treatments (often consisting of medicinal oil & herbal poultices, herbal recommendations/remedies, dietary advice, routine changes in nutrition, etc.) are recommended to reestablish “balance” and eliminate potential health problems.

According to ayurveda, our body is governed by three major doshas, or energy forces, known as Vata, Pitha and Kapha, which correspond to these elements.

Our Ayurvedic facials and body treatments consist of the finest products that are chosen to suit each clients skin type. All products are 100% natural. They are not cosmetic products, they have therapeutic properties and consist of medicinal herbs and oils.
