What is Ayurvedic Spa?

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old Eastern Indian medicinal philosophy that literally translates as "science of life" from the ancient Sanskrit words "ayur" (life) and "veda" In Ayurveda, health is a state of balance between body, mind and consciousness. Ayurvedic spas offer a range of services and treatments based on this ancient Indian and Sri Lankan science of life. It is also a spa in which all treatments and products are natural and it's often used as alternative medicine. Ayurveda spas should offer a true Avurvedic health experience, with trained Ayurveda practitioners, and authentic treatments.

The goal of Ayurveda is detoxification and restoration of one's overall balance.

The Diet in Ayurvedic Spa

There are many ayurvedic spas offer food that is aligned with the three types of vital energies, also known as the doshas.
