Ayurveda, meaning “knowledge of life” made its debut in India 5,000-plus years ago and remains just as relevant to spa-goers today. At the center of this complex holistic medical system is the recognition and balancing of someone’s doshas (one of the three biological energies said to make up our mental and physical dispositions) through the integration of such disciplines as nutrition, exercise, meditation, massage, aromatherapy, and herbal medicine.
- Preventive Care
So much of western medicine is focused on the treatment of disease. While western medicine struggles to catch up to the ancient wisdom of preventive care, Ayurvedic medicine has for thousands of years offered practitioners the means to maintain health and stave off disease.
By attuning our diets and lifestyles to our unique constitutions, we maintain the balance within ourselves that maintains good health. The best way to combat disease is to stay well in the first place.
- Beautiful Skin
Healthy skin is beautiful skin. When we use the harsh chemicals found in so many commercial skin care products, we so mistreat our skin that we may feel compelled to the further use of harsh chemicals to help mask the damage done.
To care for our skin by first understanding our skin. Whether you have dry vata skin, sensitive pitta skin, or oily kapha skin, once you understand your skin type, you can find which ancient, natural skin treatments will best balances these qualities and promote healthy, beautiful skin. In addition, by following a healthy diet and a balancing lifestyle, our skin will respond to these Ayurvedic practices, and will naturally balance itself as the entire body is eased into greater balance and health.
- Revitalizing Energy
It is so easy in this world to shirk sleep when working toward a deadline, to unmindfully eat foods out of season or even too late in the evening. We all do things that unbalance our bodies and minds, and this leads to sluggishness and lethargy.
Coffee and other stimulants might work in a pinch, in the short term, but Ayurveda has a comprehensive, long-term approach to revitalizing energy.When we understand our natural dosha, our constitution, we can determine how to balance ourselves. A vata person doing vata activity is overloaded with vata, and, could benefit from more elements of pitta and kahpa to balance this excess vata.
