What is Ayurveda?
An ancient system of healing, ayurveda is said to address health imbalances A healing system that originated thousands of years ago, ayurveda is based on the notion that good health depends on the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
Ayurveda focuses on restoring balance in the body through a personalized plan that can include massage, specialized diets, herbs, aromatherapy, and exercise.

Ayurvedic Concepts
According to ayurvedic theory, everyone is made of a combination of five elements: air, water, fire, earth, and space. These elements combine in the body to form three energies or life forces, called doshas: vata, kapha, and pitta. Although there is a unique mix of the three doshas, one dosha is usually the most influential.
In ayurveda, the balance of a person's doshas is thought to explain some of his or her individual differences and the likelihood of illness. An imbalanced dosha is believed to interrupt the natural flow of vital energy, or prana. The disrupted energy flow is thought to impair digestion and allow the build up of body waste, or ama, which further impairs energy and digestion.

The vata dosha is a combination of space and air. It controls movement and is responsible for basic body processes such as breathing, cell division and circulation.

The kapha dosha represents the elements of water and earth. Kapha is believed to be responsible for strength, immunity, and growth.

The pitta dosha combines fire and water. It is thought to control hormones and the digestive system.




Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic
therapy. Warm oil (or other liquid)
pours in a continuous stream over
the forehead or ‘ajna marma’, an
area where nerves are highly
concentrated. The pressure of the
oil onto the forehead creates a
vibration. The oil saturates the
forehead and scalp and penetrates
into the nervous system.


The main purpose of Abyanga or oil
massage as part of the Ayurvedic daily
routine is to assist in preventing the
accumulation of physiological
toxins (AMA) and to lubricate and
promote flexibility of the muscles,
tissues and joints. Once applied to the
skin, the oil passes quickly through
the various layers of the skin and the
underlying connective and fat issues.
The oil combines with any toxins
present there, especially those that
are fat-soluble. Within several
minutes of massaging the skin, the oil
becomes expelled through the skin
along with the toxins.


Udwarthanam is special therapeutic
deep tissue massage using herbal
powders. Udwarthanam means to
elevate or to promote. This massage
involves upward stroking, where the
powder is rubbed forcibly on the body.
