The Science or Knowledge of Life
An ancient medical system, Ayurveda originated in India with texts that date back 5,000 years. At the same time, its wisdom is timeless and completely relevant and valid today. Simply put, Ayurveda is a consciousness-based approach to holistic health. It is participatory.
With the guidance and support of a qualified practitioner, a person takes the responsibility to restore and establish health and well being, as opposed to relying on a quick fix for your symptoms.
Ayurveda approaches healing by identifying and beginning at the root of the problem. Its purpose is not only to heal disease, but also to prevent it. And because balance is dynamic and not static, Ayurveda is an ongoing process, and needs to be continuously adjusted to you, and all aspects of your life-the seasons, living location, climate, age, and time. It is all-encompassing: body, mind, emotions, spirit and therefore needs to be approached on the universal level of your being.
Acknowledging that each person is unique, Ayurveda therapies and treatment plans are customized to your individual constitution and specific needs. An Ayurvedic-based lifestyle has proven highly beneficial in maintaining healthy weight, normal blood pressure, good digestion and optimal functioning of the vital organs. It has been proven helpful in treatment of chronic diseases like asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and other auto immune diseases. It defines health as more than the absence of disease but living in radiance, happiness and resilience fully enjoying this precious life.
Massage Therapy has an impressive range of physical, mental and emotional benefits
Massage activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system and counteracts the body’s response to stress, which is today’s number 1 root cause for most disease. Blood pressure lowers and the heart rate settles, muscles relax and circulation improves, bringing energy-producing nutrients and oxygen to the body’s cells and eliminating metabolic waste and toxins, as well as somatic disorders. Massage Therapy relieves compressions on nerves by releasing muscle spasms and tension.
The breath becomes deeper and the immune system strengthens. With numerous techniques – from soft tissue manipulation, deep tissue work, acupressure, palming, stretching – each modality can be practiced or combined to include Swedish, Sports, Thai massage, Therapeutic and Ayurvedic massage.
And as you become more aware in general, you will become more aware of your body through massage therapy, and can avoid tensions before they have a negative effect on your health. Its benefits are far beyond simply “feeling good”.
Yoga philosophy and practice covers the entire field of our existence – from the physical, sensory, emotional, mental and spiritual to the highest plane of self-realization.
