The term wellness entered the English language in 1654, in a diary entry by Sir Archibald Johnson, Lord Wariston, who blessed God for his ‘daughter’s wealnesse.’ The Collins English Dictionary defines wellness as ‘the state of being in good physical and mental health’. Since 1950, it has been the guiding principle of the modern health movement, which originated in the USA. However, wellness is now used somewhat liberally for all kinds of commercial goods and services, despite being originally based solely on a holistic approach to the promotion of health and wellbeing.
Holistic wellbeing is at the forefront of Ayurvedic wellness. The equilibrium of vital energies (the Vata, Pitta and Kapha Doshas) is the key to health. Only when body, mind and spirit are in balance can we regenerate and maintain long-term health. Our European Ayurveda® concept tailors Ayurveda to the needs of the western world with Ayurvedic, conventional and alternative medicine treatments, nutrition, diagnostics, Yoga, meditation, exercise, regeneration and spirit healing.
