"In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages, climes and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge."-
Thoreau, American Thinker
The central theme of Indian Vedic sciences is to use the body, mind and soul to service the real self (cosmic spirit). Ayur(life) Veda(science) is the knowledge concerning the maintenance of a long and healthy life. Ayurvedic philosophy and teachings encourage people to follow a pure lifestyle, one that gives clarity, peace of mind and true satisfaction.
The research was done by two Indian sages Charaka and Agnivesa. Their work involved looking into the science of healthy living and prolonging life without illness. Charaka has compiled a comprehensive system of holistic medicine offering a wide range of modalities. Ayurveda can treat or help to prevent illness, reduce stress and increase overall quality of life.
The resulting Ayurvedic tradition is at least 5,000 years old in India. It is an integrated and comprehensive system of health, diet, wellness and balance for the mind, body and spirit.
The Essence of Ayur(life) veda(sciences) Beauty
- Ayurvedic Massage - Massage oils eliminate friction and disperse heat evenly through the body. Massage oils are a nutrient for the skin and strengthen the nerve fibers that are connected to the hair follicles. The small amount of massage oils remaining on the skin afterwards, and after the shower or bath that follows, provides resistance to environmental temperatures and pressures.
- Face Massage - An Ayurvedic facial massage activates deep centers of the brain, reflex points and facial circulation to totally soothe the body. Tensions in the neck, shoulders and face are freed and energy is rebalanced from head to toe. Herbal extracts and essential oils are to be added for their additional healing properties and pleasant fragrances.
- Ayurveda is a science of the individual - using oils and other formulations according to one’s unique metabolic and neurological constitutional type and needs
