Our Ayurvedic treatments to promote your well-being
Ayurveda: the knowledge of life
Ayurveda, the science of long life, is the oldest traditional medicine currently known. With its holistic understanding of the relationship between body, mind and spirit, this health system, originating in India, has been widely applied in the west as well for many years, since it includes highly effective methods of treatment and purification, a well-developed system of plant medicine and a comprehensive approach to nutrition. Inner harmony and the balance of all the forces living in the body are the basis for a fulfilled and healthy life according to Ayurveda. As Ayurveda sees it, health is not just a statistical average or a general state of well-being, but a state full of vitality, resistance, and inner happiness.
Every being in creation is unique.
If we recognise our true nature (prakrti), then, according to Ayurveda, we have already attained a high degree of self-fulfilment. One of the fundamental goals of life and healing is to be in harmony with one’s own constitution. According to the basic principles, the weighting and expression of the three doshas vata, pitta, and kapha are encoded at the genetic and biological level to define of seven possible constitutional types. Ayurveda believes that our fate is manifest itself in our individual constitution. In the long run, it is not possible for us to live counter to our own original nature. And yet most of us are at war with our physical or mental faculties. Whether we are slim, creative, and medial (vata); sporty, ambitious and freckled (pitta); or restful, persevering, and economical (kapha), we prefer to define to identify ourselves with the shadows of our constitution than with the potential laying dormant within us.

Vata, Pitta, Kapha: Ayurveda and your constitution
The art of living in harmony with one’s own constitution means letting go of all our (negative) interpretations of our constitutions and instead discovering the abilities and potentials hidden within us. Only by using and testing our type-specific strengths will we become aware of the unprecedented possibilities of our true self. Vata can always rely on a good idea, even in the greatest need; pitta rely on their intelligence; and kapha on their stability and adaptability.
