Choosing the right Retreat for yourself and your objectives, with all the different treatment package types available can be a big task.
So let's understand exactly what's available and where in the world for healing therapy treatments in this ancient methodology.
Ayurveda is a 'whole body' healing system.
It's origins are in India thousands of years ago. Yoga & Ayurveda share their birth Mother, India.
Ayurveda is based on the idea of balance between mind, body and spirit.
In balance good health & well being persists.
Treatment covers these parts
- Practices to adopt in your lifestyle
- Dietary foods & habits to take up
- Assessing the mind, body and spirit constitution
The belief is that every person is made up of the 5 elements- space, air, fire, water and earth.
These combine in us to form 3 energies (doshas) and it is the balance of these energies that is key.
Considered the most powerful this is the energy of all basic bodily & organ functions
such as our blood and breathing.
Regimens such as the time we go to sleep or when we eat affect the energy and can result
in poor outcomes
such as anxiety and disease. In balance comes creativity.
This energy controls digestion and metabolism. Disruption can come from the foods we eat.
In balance our mind has clarity.
Controls muscle growth and the immune system by spreading water around
our body, hydration.
This is affected by what we drink, especially the volume of salt and water.
In balance we are connected to the love inside and outside of us.
Treatment packages start with a consultation with an Ayurvedic Doctor.
Emotional and physical makeup is assessed to understand the life forces,
their strength and balance.
Treatment is unique to each individual's circumstance, the aim is to bring
these forces into balance.
This is achieved through a set of treatments such as massage and natural oils and herbs
to support the process.
