Utilizing the purifying properties of mud is an ancient practice that continues in India to this day. Taking the earth element from the panchamahabhut or “five great elements”, it cleanses skin and boosts metabolism. History of Ayurveda Translated from Sanskrit as the “Science of Life”, Ayurveda was first mentioned in the verses of the Rig Veda, the first of the Vedas or Hindu sacred texts. Here there is reference to panchamahabhut (the five basic elements of the entire creation), and the three doshas or primary forces of prana or vata (air), agni or pitta (fire) and soma or kapha (water and earth) as comprising the basic principles of Ayurveda.

The table is made from one of seven therapeutic woods and is designed to catch the oil for recycling on the same client. Oil stroking the “third eye” has a balancing effect on the deepest recesses of the brain and is profoundly relaxing. In Ayurveda, it is seen as a stimulating procedure for the nervous system and is prescribed for bringing down aggravated vata conditions such as insomnia, headache, insecurity, fear and nervous strain. Irritable pitta predominant people with overactive minds can experience a cooling, calming benefit from a session or two and kaphas often fall asleep.

Shirodhara or the pouring of medicated oil on to the forehead or “third eye” is one of Ayurveda’s best known therapies outside India. A student of the Vedas seeks understanding through a copy of one of the treatises in Sanskrit. The use of agarabathi or incense sticks to promote clean air is an age-old practice. Diagnosis is an extremely important part of Ayurveda. In a clinic or hospital, it is undertaken first thing in the morning before the patient has consumed anything. The doctor inspects the tissues and the skin; examines the “nine doors” (two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, mouth and throat, anus and penis or vulva) and their secretions; takes faeces and urine samples to assess the analam or digestive fire; takes the patient’s pulse and assesses body temperature; interrogates the patient on their sleep patterns, health, lifestyle habits, climate preferences and more; and generally takes a great deal of time to consider the patient as a whole.
