Ayurvedic massage in Montegrotto at our hotel near Abano Terme will help you to rediscover inner and outer balance, restoring the lost harmony between body and soul. Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of natural medicine handed down into modernity and a great gift from India to the world. The term “Ayurveda” is composed of the words “life” (ayu) and “knowledge” (veda), so its meaning is “knowledge of life” or “the art of living well”. In addition to medical science, it includes elements of philosophy and art and offers a cyclical view of existence by teaching how one can recognise the true nature of man and his environment as well as maintaining balance between the various elements in the universe.
Ayurveda differentiates between three different life energies (tridosha), each of which is distinguished by the seat of the main body and a specific function: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The normal balance of the doshas corresponds to the state of health, while the imbalance of one or more causes disease. Daily lifestyle, adaptation to seasonal changes, diet, and contact with nature are very important in maintaining the equilibrium of the doshas and thus, your health.
The advantages of Ayurveda
Through Ayurvedic massage, we achieve unity of the doshas (the basic biological principles of the human being) and release the aama (the physical and mental toxins). Thus, we can create a positive emotional flow and inspire the soul. The effect of massage is not only therapeutic but also preventive as it allows us to interpret, receive, and modify the messages of the body. It slows down degenerative processes, improves resistance to stress, calms the mind, strengthens the immune system and the body's self-healing abilities, helps to remedy disorders related to insomnia, depression, fatigue, menstrual cycle, digestion, tension, and contractions of the spine.
