After a stressful period in my life where my body was totally out of balance, I came to Ayur Mantra where the treatments helped me magnificently. I feel a lot fitter and have more peace of mind. Nina

I had one full day of cleansing treatments and a full day of the balancing treatments after that. The feel is very hospitable and pleasant, and the treatments are well crafted and feel great. Every time I leave there I feel good. The cleansing treatments are intense and take me some time to fully work, but after a day or two I feel my energy is boosted. The meals during the treatments are delicious and the tea is good, the complement these treatment days. The therapist is a very sweet and pleasant woman that treats you with love and respect. This is highly recommended!!! Irene Lameijer

I went to Ayur Mantra because my back and knees were aching badly, for a longer period of time. With Ayur Mantra takes a few steps further then regular physiotherapy. My physical therapist had told me that I would carry those aches for the rest of my life. When I came to Ayur Mantra, the therapist examined my body thoroughly and came to the conclusion that I had many different knots of energy in my body that was causing the pain. The treatments were very soothing and enjoyable, she relaxed my body, and after one treatment I could instantly move much better. What is important to realize is that Ayur Mantra has a long term vision and the treatments are according to this vision. In that way my ailments will not come back giving me a more secure future.

I have known the Ayurvedic therapist since 1995. She has treated me for many different ails I have had over the years, but mostly my back aches were the issue. Because of her I can function in my daily life and actually work. S.Manbodh

I came into contact with Ayur Mantra through a friend, and I am very happy that I chose to be treated by the therapist at Ayur Mantra. The back and headaches are gone; I have found some peace in my life. Monique




Ayurveda

…translates to the knowledge of a long life. It is the science of wellbeing and longevity. The word Ayurveda is a combination of the word ‘ayus’, which means life, life principle, or long life; and the word ‘veda’ comes from the system of knowledge. Ayurveda presents us with tools and insights for living in balance for healthy living. It offers the knowledge of vitality, it shows us that we as a people all are part of nature and how we can realize our full potential in this situation. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages healthy living along with therapeutic measures that create physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony and balance.

Ayurveda is a healing system that treats the whole person, the seamless integration of body, mind and spirit, as opposed to treating the symptoms. For instance, we know that ongoing stress damages our immune system, and when the immune system is weakened, we are more vulnerable to disease and illness. We also know that when our mind experiences pleasure, our brain releases healing substance to our entire body, creating feelings of happiness and well-being as well as promoting health.

WHO

Ayurveda is taking an increasingly prominent role in healthcare all over the world. Recently the World Health Organization has taken notice of the Ayurvedic point of view in the sense that well being is an important aspect of human wellbeing, as opposed to only fighting disease. The World Health Organization has taken this into their statutes.

Why Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a holistic healing system, which treats both cause and symptoms. The philosophy behind Ayurveda is that the body is the sensory vehicle for the soul. Keeping your body’s energy balance and sensory capacity optimal is vital for the soul. If you do not eat with attention for the food the effect of the food will be weaker, this principle is called realization. The realization of what one does with and for the body, as means to nourish the soul.

Doshas

Ayurveda identifies three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments, called doshas. They are known in Sanskrit as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth) and are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Most people have one or two dominant elements. The combination of the doshas is different for everyone making everybody a unique case.

We must understand that the doshas operate within a natural range. We should not consider the balance of the doshas to be a fixed ratio of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The three doshas react amongst each other according to changing circumstances. This is a continual and extremely dynamic regulating activity. Good health is not a state, it is a process. Our body is continually regenerating itself.

We are constantly interacting with our environment. We absorb toxins from the air and from our food. These are then absorbed into our cells and tissues. Incorrect digestion of our food, negative moods and emotional pressure can create toxins. These toxins impede healthy metabolism and hinder the supply of nutrients to the cells, which is necessary for healthy functioning. This impairs the normal efficiency of our organs.  It is a disruption of the balance, a block in the energy flow that creates a sense of separation or alienation from the field. Sickness is the body’s signal that we need to restore balance, eliminate whatever is causing the block, and reestablish the healthy flow of energy.

Ayurveda has been used for thousands of years to manage every type of health issue, both on the physical and mental plane. For virtually every physical ailment or injury, Ayurveda offers a healing protocol.

After a consult the treatment plan consist of three parts. Ayurvedic physical therapy is used for treating the symptoms that the imbalance in the patient’s body has manifested. Ayurvedic oil based massages are the common form for this, which are applied in many variants. The two other facets of the treatment plan are directed at treating the cause of the imbalance. The herbal supplements are an important part of the treatment plan. These herbal mixtures are made specifically for the patient and are there for the gradual balancing of the doshas .The third facet is called ‘Dincharya,’ loosely translated it means daily routine. The herbal supplements and the ayurvedic oil treatments can only go to a certain extent, without a structure the balancing process will be sub-optimal, it requires a change in thinking. Special focus is given to dietary patterns, exercise, yoga and mantra chanting. Also this facet of the treatment is patient and dosha specific.

The three aspects of the treatment plan work in synergy. Together it creates quick results in balancing the energies within oneself, leading to feeling more energetic and a greater sense of self.
