Ayurveda - The Science of Life

Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the worlds most sophisticated and powerful mind- body health systems.

Ayurveda, views a person as unique and made up of five primary elements. The elements are ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth. As in nature, we too have these five elements in us. When any of these elements are present in the environment, they will in turn have an influence on us.

Principles & Theory of Ayurveda in Anti-ageing

Our diet and the weather are just two examples of the presence of these elements. While we are a composite of these five primary elements, certain elements are seen to have an ability to combine to create various physiological functions. Ether and air combine to form what is known in Ayurveda as the Vata Dosha, which governs the principle of movement and therefore can be seen as the force which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and elimination. Fire and water are the elements that combine to form the Pitta Dosha. This dosha is the process of transformation or metabolism. The transformation of foods into nutrients that our bodies can assimilate is an example of a Pitta function. It is also responsible for metabolism in the organ and tissue systems as well as cellular metabolism. Finally, it is dominantly the water and earth elements that combine to form the Kapha Dosha.

Kapha is responsible for growth, adding structure unit by unit. Another function of the Kapha Dosha is to offer protection. We may also suggest certain herbal supplements to hasten the healing process. If toxins in the body are abundant, then a cleansing process known as Panchakarma is recommended to eliminate these toxins. According to Ayurveda, if vata dosha gets aggravated, it not only causes premature ageing but also accelerates the natural process of ageing. This dosha is naturally high in people having dry skin. Ayurveda endeavours to bring Vata, Pitt, Kaph doshas in a perfect balance, starting with Panchakarama, and the right diet to nourish you, while releasing negative emotional patterns so that you can enjoy longevity and spiritual well being.

Acupressure

All necessary nutrients, minerals, proteins, and oxygen are transported inside our body by blood. If the supply of blood gets restricted due to any reason, the area where the supply is not complete goes into a tantrum; and we need to ensure that the tantrum is removed from one’s body for the supply to be corrected.

Acupressure balances the body’s motivating energy (Qi). As we mature, the quantity of Qi and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begin to decrease, causing a loss of nourishment, support, and moisture. The face has a high number of acupressure points, specific areas of the face that can be targeted and treated.

Principles of Acupressure

Acupressure is a technique, most beneficial when used in tandem with other modes of therapy. It is not a panacea for all ageing effects, but needs to be supplemented with a proper and nutritional diet, and medication. Research shows that the benefits of this technique cannot be replicated by any other form of massage therapy. Acupressure treatment changes the body composition by increasing muscle mass, decreasing fat mass, and increasing bone density and muscle strength. All this is possible by regulating the blood circulation in the body and also increasing the efficiency of the hormones and functioning of the stomach, liver and spleen

Anti Ageing through Acupressure

Acupressure is an important tool to stall the extrinsic ageing process. Our lifestyle, food and other habits lead to an acceleration of the ageing process and we start looking older than our age. The face has a high number of acupressure points, specific areas of the face that can be targeted and treated. This will increase the flow of blood and energy through the skin in that area, thereby hydrating, plumping up and boosting the skin supply of nutrients and oxygen, thus decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. The overall result gives a more youthful appearance.

Naturopathy

The Naturopathy theory believes that our diet and the environment we expose ourselves to, can either speed up or slow down the ageing process. The body is affected by exposure to toxins in our food, air and water and these chemicals can interfere with the proper functioning. Some of symptoms that can arise from these toxins include; fatigue, lack of concentration, acne, bloating, headaches, under eye dark circles, weight gain and joint pain.

The purpose of the Anti-Ageing program is not to stop ageing, but to help a person age gracefully and as slowly as possible.

Marma - Ancient Indian Art of Treatment

This is an ancient form of Ayurvedic Massage initially developed and used by Martial Arts Practitioners.

  • There are 107 reflex points around the body where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. Each of these points have their own intelligence and consciousness, which co-ordinate with the mind and body and this helps to re-educate the brain in control and co- ordination of muscles and nerves after illness or injury.
  • The therapy involves stimulation using the fingers of these Marma (trigger) points, which promotes physical and mental rehabilitation.
  • The Marma Therapeutic treatments isolates points and cleans them out by increasing blood flow to the affected part of the neuro-muscular junction. Stretching of muscles and tendons is also used to improve tone, and gentle manipulation of the spine.

Prana Mantra Marma

Meditation is the art of treating the special vital points on the human body, and this is one of the greatest healing secrets of Ayurveda. It can be used to detoxify the body, strengthen and revitalize vital organs, and release blocked energies in the body. Through these energy points we can stimulate the function of internal organs, strengthen self-healing power, and harmonize the mind and body. The benefits of this therapy are,

  • Balancing of Chakras (energy centres of the body)
  • Increasing Immunity (improve the healing power)
  • Clearing of emotional blockages
  • Very effective for anxiety & depression.
  • To increase vitality and vigour
  • To improve the memory and concentration

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is one of the foremost systems of energy healing. It requires no drugs, gadgets or even physical contact, because the practitioner is working on the energy body and not directly on the physical body. It is the energy body that absorbs the life energy and distributes it throughout the physical body. If the negative energy is removed and positive energy is passed through the body, diseases can be cured.

Pranic healing works in correlation with the chakras - the seven wheels of energy. Each chakra of the body is connected with a particular endocrinal gland, with a particular sense organ, and with several other organs. Each chakra has its own mantra. By activating the chakras with the vibrations of the mantras, positive energy will flow through the body. Every sense organ, gland and organ will be energized and blockages will be removed, then the body can be cured. This practice is effective in groups or private sessions at Carnoustie Resorts.

How does pranic healing work

Pranic Healing corrects the energy imbalances underlying simple and complex disorders. It works on the ‘aura’ (bioplasmic energy) by removing ‘used up’ or ‘diseased’ energy and replacing it with fresh vital energy called ‘prana’. This cleansing and energising allows the body to move towards physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Cleansing removes the cause of the ailment, while energising accelerates the healing process.

Anti Ageing – Meditation

Chakras are the centres of vital energy. They are also junctions of the body, prana and mind. Activation and balancing of the chakras brings perfect health of the body and mind. This is possible through chakra meditation.

For age reversal there are many processes in Yoga, Ayurveda and modern medicine but without having to resort to external aids, spend a few minutes of your time for chakra meditation and get rejuvenated. Full chakra healing meditation for anti- ageing is given at Carnoustie Resorts.

Yoga

Yoga is a scientific system of physical and mental practices that originated in India more than 5000 years ago. Its purpose is to help each one of us achieve our highest potential and to experience enduring health and happiness. Yoga is known to help heal, aid in weight loss, stress relief, spinal disorders, arthritis, insomnia and digestive problems, migraines, etc. It improves immunity, creativity and intuition, increased energy and vitality, improved organ health, improved muscle tone and cardiovascular health, and reduced back pain etc.

Diet

The menus designed at Carnoustie Resorts, are based on the key principles of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is centred on three bio-energy forces called doshas ― vata, pitta and kapha. Each person has a unique combination of these doshas, and that composition is called one’s Prakruti. A day to-day menu is designed as per the dietary requirements prescribed by our Ayurveda Doctors. Most of the vegetables and herbs which are used in the food preparation are from our organic garden. The water served here has the herbal infusion in it to fortify dietary values. These diet menus are designed after the assessment of body constitution and current health condition.
