Ayurveda is a system of traditional Indian holistic medicine and health care procedures, which are more than 5 thousand years old. The creed is derived from extensive texts - the so-called Vedas, which form the oldest part of Sanscrit literature. One of the most important sources of the Ayurvedic creed is considered Sushruta Samhita, which describes thousand of illnesses and 800 medicinal herbs and preparations from mineral and animal sources.
Ayurveda seeks to balance the way of living and food intake, including various therapies and treatments such as aromatherapy massage, pulse diagnosis, yoga, breathing exercises and meditation that contribute to the harmonization of body and mind, stimulating beneficial life energy. Ayurvedic treatments improve our basic natural human body and mind balance.
