Metta Wellness & Maharishi Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old traditional way of healing form India based on a whole body approach of mind, body, and spirit. Working with your doshas and daily routine to create balance. Maharishi Ayurveda has worked over time to bring the principles of traditional Ayurveda here for everyone.

Maharishi Ayur-Veda is a health care system based on an analysis of health from the deepest quantum mechanical level in nature, the Unified Field.

Vata, Pitta and Kapha, the three doshas, were the first expressions of the Unified Field. They are located at the deepest  level of nature’s functioning. Vata, Pitta and Kapha are subtle but powerful fields that create the structure and function of the physical world including the human body.

Maharishi Ayur-Veda works to treat imbalances that are present in Vata, Pitta, Kapha and their subdivisions. Imbalance in the doshas is imbalance in the body’s inner intelligence responsible for proper functioning of all aspects of the physiology. Treating Vata, Pitta and Kapha imbalances is equivalent to enlivening the body’s natural healing, balancing and self-repair processes.

Ayurveda is the natural system of health care based on Vedic Science. However, Vedic Science contains many other disciplines within it that also can positively influence health.

Maharishi Vedic Health contains not only the knowledge of Ayur-Veda but includes healing modalities from many other disciplines of Vedic Science as well. Here at Metta Spa we offer MAPI (Maharishi Ayurveda Products), Maharishi Ayurveda body-work, TM Program(Transcendental Meditation) to continue with the holistic approach to whole body health.

Keep your cool in Pitta Season

Summer is pitta season, a time for most of us to remind ourselves to relax and keep cool. Sounds easy, but if your pitta is out of balance, so may your temper. Pitta is fiery, so it is already hot, so this is the ideal time to put out the flame.
Good news, cool creamy foods, like ice cream are good for cooling pitta, its all about the moderation. Walking outside, taking a hike is a great way to cool pitta, pitta types love water, so if you have a stream near by, you can sit and meditate. Massage and yoga are also great ways to bring in balance, work with aloe and coconut for the body, and plan some relaxing yoga( no Bikram yoga for you).
So work in moderation, keep cool with foods(cucumbers, aloe, apples, watermelon) massage( Anti-stress Ayurvedic massage) and yoga( shavasana is great). during this pitta season.
