Ayurveda means "knowledge of life". It is an Indian philosophy and art of living, which is nearly 5000 years old. Its goal is to live in harmony with its deep nature. Ayurveda recognizes three vital primary forces that make up our body (the Doshas), called Vata (air and ether), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water and earth). When these vital forces are unbalanced, the whole body becomes unbalanced.
In an personalized way, Ayurveda tends to maintain balance through different tools: self-observation, diet, massage, daily routine, seasonal adjustment, yoga, breathing techniques, meditation, among others.
Ayurveda places prevention and the art of healthy aging at the forefront. Why wait until the disease sets in when, as soon as certain discomforts of daily life appear (migraines, stress, insomnia,...), it is possible to take care of yourself. Changing your habits can be challenging at first and then offer real benefits.
Ayurvedic massages are distinguished from other types of massages by the fact that the therapist applies warm oils and herbal decoction mixtures according to the theory of the five elements and the three Doshas (Vata-Pitta-Kapha).They are not only a gateway to the feelings of internalization, but they are also a valuable tool in maintaining health. By using fluid and supported movements, the therapist stimulates the blood, lymphatic system and the various energy points called marmas. This oleation adapted to the person, allows to remove blockages and tensions at all levels, and thus to find harmony and vitality.
Ayurveda is particularly effective for:
+ Improve your digestive system (bloating, constipation, bitterness,...)
+ To find a restorative sleep (insomnia, fatigue upon waking up,...)
+ Regulate the body's systems: immune, hormonal, neural...
+ Improve psychological states: anxiety, stress, depression,...
+ Improve the general condition: recurrent pain, overweight, skin problems,...
This list is not exhaustive. However, it does provide an overview of the diversity of conditions treated by Ayurveda.
