Ayurveda - The Science Of Life

Ayurveda is the science by which life, in its totality, can be understood. It is one of the oldest and most comprehensive medical systems in the world with writings and teachings of clinical experience going back to the dawn of human history.
It can help us learn about how to maintain good health and improve our energy and awareness. By following an Ayurvedic lifestyle you can chose a diet, daily routine and fitness regime that suits your constitution. This can improve your general health, increase concentration and enhance fitness levels. It works by regaining balance in your  system and providing your body with what it needs to function at a higher level. It teaches us how to maintain that balance and let your body work efficiently and without dis-ease. 
It is more than just an understanding, it is a way of life, a way to live to our full human and spiritual potential.

'Ayurveda treats the human being as a whole, a combination of body, mind and soul. It always considers the psycholoigical and spiritual dimensions of healing along with the physical conditions of the body in order to address our greater being'

This means that our state of mind and general well being affects our health just as much as the food that we eat and the exercise that we undertake. They all play a part in balancing the body and maintaining health and energy levels. Each one affects the others and if one element slips out of balance then all of the others will be affected.

Ayurvedic massage works at expelling toxins from the body therefore cleansing the body from the inside out. It reduces stress and breaks down emotional tension that has built up in the muscles and tissues of the body which in turn causes a deep and healing state of relaxation. This leads to an improvement of our general well being as well as energising and revitalising the body.

Surely Ayurvedic massage should be a part of our regular health care plan and the more we have the better we will feel.
