What is Ayurveda?

ayurveda in new jersey

Ayurveda is a life science – “Ayur” meaning life and “Veda” meaning science. At around 5,000 years, it’s the oldest continuously practiced system of self-care and self-healing.

Based on the idea that human beings are as much a part of nature as the elements, Ayurveda treats our mind and body as elemental energies: wind, fire, and earth. 

Each of these energies represents what is known as a dosha, or type. There are three Ayurvedic doshas: their Sanskrit names are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth). 

The balance of these elemental forces shapes the nature of our body and mind. Although we all have the three doshas within us, most of us have one or two elements that dominate. Vata dominant people tend to be energetic, agile, enthusiastic, and creative. If Pitta predominates, we tend to be focused, intelligent, and goal-oriented, with plenty of strength. When Kapha takes the lead, we tend to be calm, steady, and nurturing, with plenty of stamina. 

Ayurveda treatments include food, massage, oils, and yoga.

More Information About Ayurvedic Massages

The Ayurvedic massage is a type of massage therapy that has been around for centuries. It is also known as the Indian system of medicine and was developed in ancient India. 

The Ayurvedic massage therapy aims to balance the three doshas, which are Vata dosha, Pitta dosha and Kapha dosha. These are known as the three main types of energies in our body. They control our mental and physical well-being, so it is important to keep them balanced with an ayurvedic massage therapy treatment.

The massage is a very popular way to relax, relieve stress and improve circulation. It has been used for centuries in many cultures and is now popular worldwide.

This type of massage uses the Ayurvedic principles of using pressure points on the body to unblock energy channels. The massage therapists use their hands, feet, forearms, and elbows to apply pressure to these points.

It is one of the most popular forms of massage in the world, and it can be used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.

Massage therapy has been around for centuries and is still a popular treatment today. It was first used in ancient India and China, but it eventually spread to other countries.

There are many different types of massage therapy, but the most popular one is Ayurvedic Massage.

Ayurveda originated in India and it is a system of natural healing that promotes physical and emotional well-being. The main goal of this type of massage is to bring balance to the body by stimulating different areas of the body through touch, pressure, stretching, and breathing techniques.
