Ayurveda

Ayurveda, which originates from India, translates as Science (Ayur) of Life (veda). In order to live well, you should choose a healthy lifestyle and make sensible choices about what you eat. But with so much conflicting advice, it can be difficult to decide what’s right for you. Ayurveda’s combination of diet, lifestyle, massage and herbal medicines has been practised for thousands of years and has proven health benefits. It is recognised by the many GPs who refer their patients for treatment by our qualified Ayurvedic doctors and therapists.

And because Ayurveda takes into account your environment, your life stage and the impact the changing seasons can have on your health and well being, it is as relevant today as it has always been.

Ayurveda Therapy

All of our qualified Ayurveda doctors and therapists are trained in Kerala and remain faithful to centuries-old, authentic Ayurveda principles. This means that female clients are always treated by female therapists and male clients by male therapists. We want you to feel comfortable throughout your Ayurveda treatment so it might help you to know what to expect.

Kerala Ayurveda

Ayurveda Consultation

Your first consultation will include questions about your lifestyle, medical history and health concerns as well as a physical examination. The consultation can take up to 30 minutes. It will include a personal health evaluation consisting of a blood pressure check, weight check and dietary advice. Also the consultation will include constitution analysis followed by recommendation of how Ayurveda can help.

Ayurveda Treatment

Depending on your condition, your treatment might consist of a series of weekly massages with specially prepared essential oils or powders, calming oil-flow, luxury oil baths and/or saunas, together with dietary advice including not just what to eat but when to eat, as well as herbal preparations or medicines to take home. All of our products are made from natural herbs and do not contain any alcohol or animal products.

Ayurveda Massage

Ayurveda massage uses long strokes, which means that it is usual for the entire body to remain uncovered during Ayurveda massage (don’t worry, we keep our treatment rooms comfortably warm). You might be more familiar with short stroke massage in which only one part of your body is uncovered at any time while it is massaged. If you would prefer to remain covered during your treatment, your therapist will be happy to oblige so please let him or her know.

Ayurveda – Doshas, which are you?

Ayurveda acknowledges that not everyone is the same. According to Ayurveda principle, we are each a combination of three Doshas or mind-body types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It is usual to have a dominant Dosha which influences how you behave and can suggest particular health problems, especially if your Dosha becomes out of balance, see the table below.

What can Ayurveda offer to you?

Conditions

We do not recommend Ayurveda treatments as an alternative to conventional medicines or seeking the advice of your own GP, but as a complementary element of your treatment. In fact, many of our patients are referred to us by their GP when conventional medicine has failed to relieve an acute condition, or because an Ayurvedic lifestyle could help to manage a chronic condition like those listed below.

And, before we recommend a course of treatment tailored to your specific needs, you will see one of our qualified Ayurveda doctors for a consultation. The list below shows the conditions we most frequently treat.

It is not comprehensive so please contact us to ask discuss your own specific condition and how authentic Ayurveda can help.
