Ayurveda is a vast system of healing that has been practiced in India for thousands of years, and translates as Knowledge of Life. It is a complete system, with various components aimed at improving emotional, physical and mental health. Throughout the body are energy points known as Marmas, through which Prana (vital energy) flows. When a point becomes blocked it can lead to illness. With gentle massage of these points, energy can be released allowing Prana to flow freely, helping to prevent disharmony and to promote and maintain health. Dosha translates “force” or “fault”. Our dosha determines our constitution, personality traits, sleeping patterns, preferences and even the food we eat.
