What is Ayurveda
Ayurveda is one of the great gifts from the spiritual teachers of ancient India. It is accepted as the oldest scientific medical system still in use and it treats people as a whole, respecting the combination of body, mind and spirit.
More than simply complementary medical care, Ayurveda offers a philosophy to help with unnecessary suffering and guidance on living a healthy lifestyle.
Ayurveda combines nutritional guidance, herbal medicines, exercise therapy, meditation, massage and many special rejuvenation and purification therapies.
It is a patient-orientated system of healing, focusing on the type of person who has the disease, rather than a generalused approach to the type of condition or disease that a person has.
A blissful chance for relaxation and nourishment with rebalancing of the 'doshas' through oils and herbs specifically chosen according to your dosha.
This treatment uses hot herbal bags to release muscle tension and can benefit the circulation and has a detoxifying effect. Diseases like chronic rheumatism, osteoarthritis, gout, facial paralysis, joint pains and aching muscles may be helped by this technique.
In this treatment, we find your individual constitutional type, by examination of the tongue, taking the pulse and asking questions about physical, mental and emotional patterns. This determines which of the functions/doshas is out of balance, and leading to dis-ease. I will also give advice on diet, exercise, yoga and breathing techniques (pranayama).
Ayurvedic Dietary Advice
Micha normally starts with dietary advice to help restore the body’s natural balance.
Ayurveda emphasises an approach that focuses on the energy, rather than the chemistry, of food which is easy to understand once explained in combination with your constitution. Micha then will provide you with specific food lists which are easy to use.
Ayurveda believes that any ailment starts with an imbalance of the five elements (space, air, fire, earth and water) which constitute the human being, and therefore it aims to balance them. Food is seen as medicine and whatever you consume has a direct impact on your body and mind.
Sometimes a small adjustment in your diet and kitchen herbs can be very helpful for people with conditions such as:
Crohn’s Disease - Colitis - IBS - Candida - Skin allergies & inflammations - Acne, Eczema & Psoriasis - Insomnia - Depression - Amnesia - Stress - Fear & Anxiety - Headaches - Weight problems - Fatigue - Thyroid problems

Ayurvedic Face Massage
This unique massage which focuses on the face, head and neck is sometimes called facial rejuvenation. It involves the application of massage oil and pressure along specific areas on the face, known as the marma points.
Deeply held tensions in the muscles of the face can be released, making your skin appear healthy and toned. It can also detoxify, stimulate lymphatic drainage and improve circulation of blood. Regular massage can help you feel relaxed and rejuvenated, bringing more harmony and balance to your whole body
Treat yourself to a unique facial the Indian way; Micha uses warm herbal bags to stimulate the lymphatic system and to flush out toxins, leaving your face glowing.
Your eyes will be soothed with rosewater pads while a herbal mask is applied and will leave your skin rejuvenated. Floral oils will be used to massage your neck, shoulders, face and head using specific pressure points to release tension in your neck and face, leaving you relaxed, refreshed and radiant.
