Complementary and alternative practises for holistic healing and wellbeing
Ayurveda translates as “science of life” and is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems, incorporating the whole mind, body and soul systems . It is based on a belief that health and wellness are all a delicate fine balance between these holistic systems.
In Ayurvedic medicine all of life is looked at with good or bad medicine in mind. Everything from how we sleep, to the food that we eat, the colours that we wear and the exercise that we take is viewed as medicine. Ayurvedic practises are encouraged to help keep the body in balance or in homeostasis.
At the Body Tree we start with an Ayurvedic consultation to determine your natural born constitution or personality, referred to as a dosha type. Using this information we move forward to determine what foods, lifestyle and practises that can be incorporated into your lifestyle for optimal healing and bringing balance to your dosha. This is bringing the holistic systems back to their true state, which is when our body is at its most optimal, balanced and functional.
