THE AYURVEDIC TREATMENTS
The Ayurveda method of healing and wellbeing is one of the world's oldest holistic systems, dating back more than 5,000 years ago in India. It works on the basis that every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water, and earth.
If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universal energy, you will have good health. When something disrupts this balance such as injury, emotions, age, seasonal change or even lifestyle, you will become unwell. The five elements combine in the human body to make three life forces “doshas”. We all have a unique combination of the doshas but one dosha is usually more prominent and this throws off our balance. Ayurveda uses the knowledge of our doshas to bring harmony and welllness back to us, by restoring our dosha balance during treatments, therapies and lifestyle changes.
Vata dosha (space and air)
Pitta dosha (fire and water)
Kapha dosha (water and earth)
Ayurveda, “Ayur” means life and “Veda” for knowledge in Sanskrit – is the science of life. Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world, born here in India. During your consultancy your “Dosha” will be determined by an Ayurvedic Doctor from Vata, Pitta and Kapha. You will be advised on the best nutrition, therapies, treatments and lifestyle changes according to your dosha in order to follow a personalised wellbeing path during your stay with Devarya and beyond.
