What is Ayurveda?

“Ayurveda is a consciousness-based approach to health, a spiritual medicine recognising the phenomenal intelligence in every grain,
every seed, all life and every living thing.”

Ayurveda is a holistic healing system that dates back to over 10,000 years, originating in India – the abode of ancient Ayurvedic practices. In Sanskrit, “Ayur” depicts life and “Veda” means knowledge or science. Together, they make the “knowledge or science of life.” It is the first and oldest form of medicine originally gifted to mankind, providing the secret to a healthy lifestyle rather than a cure.

Ayurveda is a time-tested science that primarily uses plant-based herbal treatments, rituals, Ayurvedic herbs and rejuvenating therapies to help relax your mind and body, restore wellness. The ancient medical system helps individuals lead a life where there exists the perfect State of Balance between the mind, body and soul, and with the environment.

In Ayurveda, it is believed that when life’s balance is disrupted that there arises a variety of diseases. These can be addressed by restoring the balance. As such, this ancient healing system goes deep into the root cause, understanding the disbalance in an individual’s physical, emotional and mental wellbeing and providing bespoke Ayurvedic treatments to help achieve a Balanced Way of Life.
