The place where mind, body and spirit goes on vacation



Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic
(“whole-body”) healing systems. It is a system that was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India and since improved and perfected to the state it is know for today. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not to fight disease.

But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems like weight-loss, detox, stress-relief, energy-replenishment and much more.

Ayurveda treatment is considered an alternative form of medicine, and practitioners of this ancient treatment believe that everything in the universe – dead or alive – is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you are more prone to get sick. Among the things that can upset this balance are genetic or birth defects, injuries, climate and seasonal change, age, and your emotions.

Those who practice Ayurveda believe every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water, and earth.
These combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies, called doshas. They control how your body works. They are Vata dosha (space and air); Pitta dosha (fire and water); and Kapha dosha (water and earth).

Everyone inherits a unique mix of the three doshas. But one is usually stronger than the others. Each one controls a different body function. It’s believed that your chances of getting sick – and the health issues you develop – are linked to the balance of your doshas. More… 

Ayurveda Therapeutic Benefits – Ayurveda Oil Massage

Therapeutic Benefits

Oil massage is consistently used throughout Ayurvedic massage treatments. Its calm approach means that recipients are not only induced into a relaxed state during the massage, they also often report an improvement in their sleep patterns and general sense of wellbeing. In an ideal world, Ayurvedic massage would be carried out daily to help keep at bay the effects that everyday stresses and strains can have on our minds and bodies.

During an Ayurvedic massage a subtle transfer of electromagnetic energy takes place between the therapist and the client, so it is important to trust and feel ‘good vibes’ with your chosen therapist. One must feel receptive and safe in order to allow the energy of the therapist. In turn, a wave of unconditional love and compassion flows through the therapist as they respect the faith you have placed in them, an honour not taken lightly. Perhaps that’s why the Ayurvedic word for oil is sneha; a term also synonymous with love, kindness and tenderness; all the feelings that should engulf you during an Ayurvedic body massage. If love is the panacea, then an Ayurvedic oil massage is a great way to get a good dose of unconditional love.

If you never had one you might be wondering what is an Ayurveda Massage Treatment and how is it different from a regular massage try one for yourself at Mangosteen Resort in Phuket.
