The word Ayurveda comes from the ancient Indian language Sanskrit. It translates as “Science of Life” and is often referred to as Traditional Indian Medicine.  Ayurveda is said to have originated more than 5000 years ago and is believed to be the oldest & most complete health system known to man.  The first written evidence is contained in the Atharva Veda circa 3000 B.C. Ancient texts help to explain the origins and workings of the universe and life as we know it.  Ayurvedic texts specifically teach us how to lead a healthy and happy life thus enabling us to realise our full potential. Ayurveda is truly holistic and is so much more than merely a health care system. It is a way of living that aims to restore & maintain the balance of the mind, body & spirit through diet, cleanses, medicines, treatments, yoga & meditation.

At Satmya we place great importance in upholding the sacred teachings of the classical texts & endeavour to practice Ayurveda in accordance with these teachings.
