What is the ayurvedic massage of Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort

Ayurveda is the oldest natural medicine system developed by man. Let’s find out what the Ayurvedic massage is and why it is so appreciated!

Ayurveda and the 3 Doshas

The history of Ayurveda has its roots in the Vedic period, which dates back to 5000 BC.
The word Ayurveda is composed of the terms: Ayus (Life) and Veda (Knowledge or Science).
The Ayurveda discipline is recognized by the OMS and by FNOMCeO, it deals with all aspects of wellness from physical to psychic and spiritual.
According to Ayurveda, health is not just the absence of illness, but a state of continual contentment and well-being, a state of physical, mental and spiritual happiness.
One of the most important concepts in Ayurveda is that of the three Doshas:

  • Vata;
  • Pitta;
  • Kapha.

The three doshas are taken into account in determining the individual constitution, the origin of diseases, treatments, methods for maintaining good health, massage, diet and the type of physical exercise.

Ayurvedic massage: what is it and what are the benefits

The origins of Ayurvedic massage can be found in ancient texts: the Sushruta and the Charaka Samhita.

The main purpose of Ayurvedic Massage is to restore the body’s balance and safeguard physical and mental health.

It is an invigorating and relaxing massage that through the use of specific oils gives the body health and brightness.

If we should answer the question “what is Ayurveda massage” in short, we could certainly say that it is an excellent tool to fight stress and disease, able to preserve the vital areas of the body keeping them in optimal conditions and enhancing the immune system.

Moreover, Ayurveda is not the exclusive property of a single culture or a single country, it is not the prerogative of a single religion, it does not belong to a single historical period. Since it deals with phenomena inherent to nature it has a universal value and a very open attitude towards the influences that come from different cultures; medicines and diets may vary, but the underlying principles are always the same.

Therefore Ayurveda can be considered a “Heritage of humanity”.
