What is Ayurveda?

Among the most ancient traditions in the world that survived and remained intact during thousands of years of history, the Ayurveda, also defined as the “traditional Indian medicine”, literally means “knowledge of life or of the duration of life” and this meaning clearly goes beyond the mere concept of medical care.  It is a medical and scientific subject that provides special knowledge about the functioning of our body, both in health and illness and, in particular, it deepens the psychosomatic values that are present in any situation where there is illness and, thus, where a state of suffering is developing within the person.


Ayurveda aims at 4 fundamental purposes

Prevent illnesses

Look after our health

Maintain our health

Promote longevity

How does Ayurveda take effect?

The curative technics adopted are various and contain actions aimed at rebalancing both body and mind and their relationship with the environment. Within a short time, a number of actions can be identified through the body: nutrition, use of medical plants; physical treatments such as complete or partial massages with special oils and techniques; detox therapies, balancing of the senses, psychophysical rhythms, balancing of the mind and its environment. An important part of these treatments is the aimed at the elimination of physical toxins and at the activation of the healing energy inside us. The Ayurveda can be a valid support and help for the treatments of allopathic medicine.

The definition of health by the antique texts of the Ayurveda:

“The healthy individual is he or she who has moods, who possesses the digestive fire, has a good balance of both the tissue components and the excretory functions and whose spirit, senses and mind are always content”.

And the three doshas... What are Vata, Pitta and Kapha?

Sometimes they are translated as “physical states”, “energies”, “constitutional principles” or, recently, “bioenergetic principles”. Their literal meaning is “defect”, “alteration”, “damage”, with an obvious reference to the fact that they may become unbalanced and, thus, determining illnesses. Actually, they indicate the physiological principles governing all the functions of body and mind. There are 3 doshas: vata, pitta and kapha. Each of them is the result of the combination of two of the pancha mahabhuta, “the five gross elements” the matter is composed of.


Vata represents the principle of movement and activation. It governs all that is moving in the body and relates in particular to nerve, circulatory, respiratory, excretory and locomotion functions.


Pitta represents the principle of transformation and of heat. It governs all the metabolic functions of the body and the thermoregulation, and in particular it relates to all the endocrine and digestive and functions.


Kapha represents the principle of cohesion and structure. It governs the fluids and relates in particular to growth and the functions of the immune system. 

Of course, the three doshas work in synergy in order to maintain the balance of the body. For example, they govern the elementary cellular processes as well as the digestive process.

The ayurvedic anamnesis

Special attention is given to the patient during the first appointment for a treatment.

The anamnesis consists in checking the pulse, which shows the imbalances present in the body referred to vata, pitta and kapha. This then allows to start a deeper dialogue with the patient about what is going on. In this manner the type of treatment can be much more targeted and personalized, according to the individual nature of the person, in order to facilitate the rebalancing. During the first visit, suggestions are given to correct eating habits and lifestyle, which is of help for the rebalancing. The treatments normalIy pacify and rebalance quickly, but it is important that the patient becomes aware of where the mistakes that lead to the imbalance are. The substances used for treatments are various, but essentially based on herbal ayurvedic oils and medicated powders.

Two treatment rooms

The Centre has two treatment cabinets, both of which can be quickly brought to a comfortable temperature of 25 degrees to help the patient to feel at ease. Cotton sheets which are then washed and sanitized are used.

The Akasha cabinet has a wooden Droni, a traditional Indian Ayurvedic bed, suitable for Siro Dhara and Svedana treatments (sauna after an Abhyangam treatment).

In the Vaju cabinet, all other Ayurvedic treatments and individual treatments with Tibetan bells are carried out. The lounger can be heated in order to keep the patient more comfortable during the treatment.


Before starting a treatment an initial contact to create a connection with the patient is established.

I like to take the necessary time with each patient and, if they wish, they can take a shower after the Ayurvedic treatment so that they can resume their activities.

The time devoted to each individual treatment varies from 30'/40' (partial treatment) to 60'/75' (full treatment).

After the treatment, a minimum amount of rest time is essential and a shower is normally required. All you need is at your disposal.

All treatments must be received on an empty stomach.

Women should refrain from receiving treatments during their menstrual period (first 3 days).

Any make-up must be removed and this can be done in the cabinet.

For each treatment pure, precious and certified Ayurvedic medicated oils and herbal and spice powders are used according to the principles and recipes of traditional Āyurveda.

Two-handed and four-handed treatments are available as passed on from the most classical Indian tradition.
