Ayurveda with western standards
In a world that is becoming more and more hectic, we need spaces to restore our power, mindfulness and tranquillity. Only in this way can we maintain our personal health over the long term. Using modern cures and treatments, Ayurveda by Giardino pursues precisely this objective in Ascona, St. Moritz and Zurich.
- What is Ayurveda? Classical Ayurveda teachings are the basis for the world’s oldest holistic art of healing and have their origin in Asia. Ayurveda means “the science of life”, and its approach is timeless: According to Ayurveda teachings, every individual has their own specific mixture of three different energies, the doshas: vata, pitta and kapha – comparable to the elements air, fire and water. They shape our body, mind and soul. Illnesses are the result of disruptions to the individual patterns in the form of an imbalance. The objective of Ayurveda is to remedy this imbalance or prevent it from arising in the first place. By balancing the body and mind, our health should be guaranteed into old age.
- Where does Ayurveda help? Ayurvedic cures help guests to rid themselves of toxins, but also of spiritual “residues”. The body and mind find harmony. The Ayurveda by Giardino cures can help over the long term with many symptoms such as intolerances, restlessness, lack of drive, chronic pain, excess weight and rheumatic diseases.
- What is Ayurveda by Giardino? The Ayurveda by Giardino cures, treatments and nutrition counselling are based on the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda teachings. At Giardino, however, the Ayurvedic principles are implemented with Western standards and are thus adjusted in line with the local needs of guests. For example, rough cleansing practices and Asian-Indian cuisine do not play any role. On the contrary, just like the hotels themselves, Ayurveda by Giardino is based on a Mediterranean dolce vita: carefree enjoyment, intensive relaxation and a natural feeling of well-being. Easy-to-digest foods, relaxing and therapeutic massages and exercise serve to remove detrimental toxins, stimulate the body’s self-healing powers and rejuvenate the tissue.
