The classical texts of Sri Lankan Ayurveda in their written form are almost 3,000 years old. However, like all of the 40 areas of Veda and Vedic Literature, the knowledge of Ayurveda has been passed down orally for thousands of years. This makes Ayurveda older than any other science of health.The classical Ayurvedic texts describe an ancient civilization where the presence of illness was unknown.

Even today, Ayurveda serves to maintain, promote and restore good health as well as preventing illness.
The original purpose of Ayurveda was not just to improve the health of the individual, but also to create a positive influence on the health of society as a whole. According to the Vedic rishis (seers), as expressed in the ancient text, the positive healthy behavior of each individual combines to produce a disease-free society.
In centuries past, during periods of foreign rule in India, the traditional knowledge of Ayurveda was increasingly pushed into the background. As a result, many important aspects of this holistic approach to health care became lost. Fortunately, the traditional families of India and Sri Lanka have preserved this priceless knowledge and have passed on to their succeeding generations.

Ayurveda Body Massage

The whole-body massage can be given using different types of oil depending on the body type (i.e. vata, pitta, kapha, or a combination). The massage can be performed with a combination of strokes including tapping, kneading, rubbing, and squeezing. It is very beneficial for general rejuvenation, skin and musculoskeletal conditioning or problems such as obesity, body aches, and pain. Sharpen memory reduces body fat, improves skin tone and enables peaceful sleep.

Ayurveda Head Massage

When oil is applied to the head, it gets absorbed into the scalp through the roots of the hair. This nourishes, lubricates, and strengthens the hair roots and the skin of the scalp preventing hair loss and premature greying. It improves circulation to the head, relaxing the muscles and nerve fibers. This helps to refresh both the mind and the body, relieving tension and fatigue and improving the complexion.
