Originating in India, Ayurveda literally translates to ‘the science of life’. Over time the ancient teachings of this 5,000-year-old comprehensive medical system have been handed down by Indian Sages as a part of their spiritual tradition.
Today, Ayurveda encompasses prevention, healing and longevity as a holistic science. Health is defined as the dynamic state of balance between mind, body, and environment. You can achieve and maintain a vibrant state of health by identifying your mind-body type and creating a lifestyle that supports your unique nature.
Ayurveda holds an elemental view of the universe and believes people are made up of various combinations of the following five elements: air, ether, fire, earth and water. These elements form the three biological humours of Ayurveda, called the doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
The dominance of a particular dosha determines certain physical, mental and emotional characteristics, and importantly may predetermine potential health risks.
I am very excited to be incorporating the wisdom of Ayurveda into the Sacred Space Body Ritual and Sacred Space Facial Ritual.
The Body Ritual
A fusion of massage, sound, and healing, drawing from the wisdoms of both Eastern and Western practices, bringing together ancient and modern therapies. The ritual melds remedial massage, Ayurveda, Reiki, chakra balancing, energy healing and acupressure to bring you back into balance, restoring and renewing your prana.
Once we have determined your dosha we can use an appropriate Ayurvedic oil blend. The Vata oil is a blend of sesame oil, turmeric, nut grass, mimosa and vetiver, to help nourish the skin maintaining vitality and softness. This oil is lightly scented with rosewood, lavender and ylang ylang. The Pitta oil is a blend of 29 herbs, formulated from an ancient Ayurvedic recipe to help relieve stress and exhaustion. The natural fragrance of sandalwood, rose and patchouli helps to soothe the senses, restore calmness, relax the mind and elevate the spirit. The Kapha oil is a stimulating blend of 8 herbs known to invigorate and uplift the senses. A traditional remedy for tired skin, natural exfoliates and powerful antioxidants help to stimulate and recharge the skin for pure radiance. The oil is lightly scented with frankincense, lime and neroli.
The Facial Ritual
A sequence of timeless techniques, drawn from the wisdom of the natural healing traditions; a sensory journey of deep relaxation. Using a skincare system formulated with the intelligence of Ayurvedic herbs and plant extracts, and infused with Western active ingredients, these products will help to transform your skin, increasing firmness and elasticity and restoring a youthful glow.
By filling out a dosha questionnaire you will find out your unique combination of the three doshas, and by understanding how these doshas interplay you can then learn how to bring more balance into your being.
