Sumi’s Mind & Body - Ayurveda Massage
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a ancient Indian Sanskrit word that means “The Science of Self Healing” or “The Science of Life. Ayurveda is a simple, practical science of life whose principles are universally applicable to each individual’s daily existence. Ayurveda speaks to every element and facet of human life, offering guidance that has been tested and refined over many centuries to all those who seek greater harmony and peace and longevity.
How Does It Work?
Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance.
The three elements which kick start the various functions of the body are known by various names in different parts of the body according to the task they perform. Hence there are three Doshas – the Vata, the Pitta and the Kapha. Ayurvedic practitioners help you to find out the imbalance in the Doshas and recommend the therapy accordingly.
Conditions That Can Be Treated
Many factors, both internal and external, act upon us to disturb this balance and are reflected as a change in one’s constitution from the balanced state. Examples of these emotional and physical stresses include one’s emotional state, diet and food choices, seasons and weather, physical trauma, work and family relationships. Once these factors are understood, one can take appropriate actions to nullify or minimize their effects or eliminate the causes of imbalance and re-establish one’s original constitution.
Balance is the natural order; imbalance is disorder. Within the body there is a constant interaction between order and disorder. When one understands the nature and structure of disorder, one can re-establish order.
