Ayurvedic Spa Treatments & Their Benefits

Ayurvedic Spa Treatments


India’s contribution to the world is proudly nestled in the realm of ‘spirituality’. ‘Meditation’ which is the spearhead of spirituality encourages us to look inwards. ‘Yoga’ is crafted and engineered for the longevity and mobility of our bodies. Finally, the art and practice of treating bodily ailments and diseases through alternative medicines, primarily through herbal remedies, is called ‘Ayurveda’.

The term ‘Ayurveda’ is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur which means life and veda which means ‘science or knowledge’. This intriguing system of herbal medicinal treatments originated over 3000 years ago in India. It encourages healthy changes to our overall lifestyle and aims to bring a connection between our mind, body, spirit and environment.

According to Ayurveda, there are three types of principles that govern our body and mind. In Sanskrit terms, they are known as 'Vata', 'Pitta' and 'Kapha'. These terms can be loosely translated to ‘energy’ because it requires energy to enable all bodily functions. Vata is the energy of movement, Pitta is the energy of digestion or metabolism and Kapha is the energy of lubrication and structure. An imbalance of one of these energies usually leads to deficiencies or diseases. A balance of all of these energies is vital for a healthy and long life.
