Ayurveda & Wellness Programme
“Experience Holistic Healing of Ayuverda
Developed thousands of years ago in India, Ayurvedic – also known as Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic (whole-body) healing systems. Ayurveda is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and soul. The Orchard Ayurveda Programmes focus in promote good health, rather than fight disease. But treatments may be recommended for specific health problems.
In Ayurveda theory, everything in the universe — living or not — is connected. Good health is achieved when your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe. Disruptions (injuries, age, emotions, genetic or birth defects, climate and seasonal changes) of this harmony can lead to poor health and sickness.
Every person is made of a combination of five basic elements found in the universe: Space, Air, Fire, Water & Earth.
These elements combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies, called doshas. They control how your body works. The three doshas are: Vata dosha (space and air), Pitta dosha (fire and water) and Kapha dosha (water and earth)
Everyone inherits a unique mix of the three doshas. One dosha is usually more dominant. Each dosha controls a different body function. It is believed that your chances of getting sick are linked to the balance of your doshas”

Aromatherapy, breathing exercises, diet changes, herbs, minerals and metals, plant-based oils and spices, lifestyle changes, medication, stretching and yoga.
