Ayurveda is a holistic natural system of medicine that originated about 5000 years ago in India. It is not only a system of medicine in the conventional sense of curing disease – it is also a way of life that teaches us how to promote longevity and ensure a feeling of well-being and vitality.
Balancing Body, Mind and Spirit,
“Ayur” means life and “Veda” means knowledge or science. This ‘Science of Life’ is the knowledge of complete balance of the Body, Mind and Spirit, including the emotions and psychology, on all levels.
Ayurveda treats man as a whole – which is a combination of body, mind and soul. According to Ayurvedic tradition health is the balance of the 5 elements ether, air, fire, water and earth – and illness is the result of an excess or deficiency of any of these particular elements. Ayurveda treats illness at its source, rather than at the level of symptoms.
It is a complete knowledge of life that teaches us how to live in tune with nature.
The Ayurvedic approach empowers people to reclaim true health and find renewed enthusiasm for creating harmony in their bodies, minds and spirits.

Shirodhara is a traditional treatment where a fine stream of warm oil runs on your forehead for about 30 minutes. It gives a feeling of deep relaxation and helps to calm and clear the mind.
This is a great treatment for people who work under stress and need deep relaxation. It starts with a neck and head massage to relax the body and prepare it for the treatment. The whole treatment takes 1 hour and it finishes with a short massage of your feet.
Shirodhara is an excellent treatment for:
- Releasing stress
- Deeply relaxing the nervous system
- Feeling more balanced
- Feeling calmer
- Treating insomnia
- Treating headaches, migraines
- Improving focus & mental clarity
It is best to have a series of Shirodhara treatments to get the most benefit from this amazing treatment.
What People Say
Our Unique Ayurvedic Constitution
According to Ayurveda each individual is a unique combination of physical, mental & emotional characteristics which are known as his/her constitution (Prakruti). There are three primary energies, which are also called Doshas. The three Doshas are named Vata, Pitta & Kapha. The three Doshas govern the whole body. Find out if your three Ayurvedic Doshas are in balance.
All of us are made out of these three Doshas but each individual has its own unique constitution that is usually governed by one or two of the Doshas predominantly. This makes each one of us a unique individual and Ayurveda uses a systematic approach that empowers us to greater understanding of our own unique Nature.
How do the three Doshas (energies) originate out of the five Elements?
Many factors, both internal as well as external can affect ours constitution eg. one’s emotional state, diet, daily food choices, season and weather, physical trauma, job and family relationships. Once we understand that these factors can cause an imbalance in our constitution we have a choice to take appropriate action to balance their effects to eliminate the cause.
Life challenges us in many different ways. Although there is much over which we have little control, we do have the power to determine our diet and lifestyle. To maintain balance and health it is important to give attention to these decisions. Diet, lifestyle and herbs appropriate to one’s individual constitution strengthen the body, mind and consciousness.
Find out if your three Ayurvedic Doshas are in balance
We know that everybody can have challenges in life that cause us to be out of balance.
If that happens one of our Doshas (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) will be out of balance.
To get back to a healthy constitution can be as simple as bringing that Dosha back into balance.
