ANANDA is AYURVEDA is BALANCE is REGENERATION is HEALTH

Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine that is over 3,000 years old, is the central element during your stay at ANANDA AYURVEDA RESORT. Regeneration and restoring your life balance is the goal of our actions, attentions and treatments.

The term Ayurveda is Sanskrit and means “life knowledge” in a holistic sense – the balance of body, mind and soul is the essence of a long and healthy life. Cleansing massages and oil baths, a type-based diet, Indian phytotherapy and spiritual yoga are the traditional instruments that are used in order to regulate and maintain good health.

According to the Ayurvedic teachings, three physical energies or life principles, the doshas, are at work in the human organism. Every person is born with a particular constitution, and every single dosha has a regulating effect in our body. Health therefore means an individual, harmonious balance of these three energy principles.

The Ayurvedic medical consultation

This is where the experienced Ayurvedic doctor begins his work, by determining your personal constitutional type and locating imbalances. He identifies this individual relationship between your doshas by conducting a detailed anamnesis interview and performing a pulse, face and tongue diagnosis.
