What is Ayurveda?
Ayu means Life and Veda is knowledge, or science. Ayurveda is the science of life – the knowledge of how to live optimal as a human being on this earth. It teaches us everything we need to know in order to have a harmonious and loving relationship with our own body – and ultimately with our Self.
It teaches us a language that allows us to understand all of the subtle messages our body gives us every day, through which we can recognise any imbalances before they form into disease.
It also teaches us how to trace a disease back to it’s origin, understanding what type of imbalance created it in the first place and so gives us the chance to restore that balance and provide a stable basis for the body to heal itself – because that’s what our body does: it is a self-healing organism, if we support it.
During an initial consultation we will find out the root cause of the issue and divine a strategy to revers the state of imbalance your body or mind is currently in.
In further counselling session I can help you stick to these strategies until relief is experienced.
The word for “oil” in Sanskrit is the same word as for “motherly love”. Ayurvedic massage works on many levels: Through meditative touch, the therapist can transfer positive energy into the clients body. Specific oils are worked deeply into the skin, so they become nourishment for the nervous system. Through specific Marma points in the body, a deep healing is stimulated.
