Ayurveda herbs and spices

In our classes on Thai Massage, ayurveda is a central component of how we learn to massage. The reasons are many including the fact that Thai Massage actually comes from India and the founder is universally regarded as a famous ayurvedic doctor named Jivaka Kumarbacha.

More to the point is that at the heart of Ayurveda is systematic way that helps us to see ourselves as individuals, to determine our unique constitution. From this launching point there are infinite applications to make empowered –natural- choices that bring us into greater balance and health.

Choices that range from the foods we eat, the colors we wear, the way we exercise, the ways we relax, the work we do… it can all have a dramatic effect on the quality of life we lead.

The simple everyday choices we make have the amazing ability to help us reduce our stress and live a better life. Ayurveda pulls back the lens to help us know that the choices we are making are the best ones we can make, and teaches us how to build on and trust our intuition.
