What is Ayurveda?

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.

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

To maintain optimum health through Ayurveda one can choose from a vast range of medicines, therapies and practices such as Yogic exercises, Meditation, Vedic astrology, Panchakarma cleanses, decoctions, herbs, tonics, consultations, fertility and rejuvenating treatments etc. The practical knowledge of self-healing is accessible to everyone through Ayurveda.
