Ayur Ved

Ayurveda today could not be more pertinent. Many people are suffering from stress-related conditions but, sometimes, conventional medicine struggles to remedy this. By listening to our inner voice we can increase our well-being and long term health. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic traditional system which uses the characteristics of nature to help maintain a person's health. We treat the body as a whole, ensuring both physical and mental harmony. Ayurveda is the traditional Sanskrit word which, when translated, means 'the science or knowledge of life'.

Ayurveda originated in India over 4,000 years ago and incorporates the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda believes that the Universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether/space. These five elements are also represented in the body. The interaction of these three Dosha's and the balance/imbalance between them determines the state of physical and mental well-being.
