Ayurveda means, in Sanskrit, science (veda) of life (ayur), and is an ancient Indian therapy that uses techniques of massage, nutrition, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, among others. Through diagnosis based on the study of the body, mind and soul, this therapy, in addition to healing, also acts as a preventative.
Ayurveda believes that the human body is made up of 3 principles, or Doshas, which are Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are combinations of the elements Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The imbalance in the proportion of these elements can lead to the appearance of diseases, so through massages, food and phytotherapy, specific to each Dosha, this therapy aims to keep the elements in balance in the body of each human being.
