What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is based on the harmony between body and mind, and the practice offers many benefits such as stress reduction, elimination of toxins, improved circulation, etc. While the treatments are often very specific massage techniques, Ayurveda also suggests readjusting one's lifestyle to achieve greater harmony and better health.

Ayurveda is yoga's sister science, dedicated to balancing mind and body. Thousands of years ago, in India, Ayurveda was developed as a system for diagnosing imbalances in the body and mind that eventually manifest themselves in the form of illness, disease and other symptoms. The aim is to restore balance to the body through a healthy lifestyle adapted to the individual, using plant formulas and other appropriate natural remedies.

Ayurveda is above all a holistic and preventive system of medicine.

Its role is to provide knowledge and targeted practices so that the body and mind can be in harmony and in top form.

Ayurveda teaches us that to be in good health we need good bodily functioning, but that we need to combine physical health with mental and emotional health. This means understanding the lifestyle that suits us best by adapting our diet, our sleep, our communications, our interactions and much more.

Ayurveda is one of the traditional medicines recognised and listed by the WHO as a natural, traditional and integrative health system.

The main principles:
Ayurveda is based on the theory of the 5 elements.

Ether (Akasha) - subtle space

Air (Vayu)

Fire (Agni)

Earth (Prithivi)

Water (Jala)


These elements make up the universe (macrocosm) and create the human body (microcosm). So we have all the elements inside us and we are a reflection of the universe.

Who is it for?
It's for everyone, whatever their age, whether you're in good health and looking for what's best for you, or in deep or slight imbalance. Ayurveda guides you towards well-being and reconnection with your body and your own essence. Self-realisation is the ultimate state of healing.

Focus on Ayurvedic massage
In Ayurvedic medicine, massage is a therapeutic tool in its own right. In India, massage is an integral part of everyday life from childhood onwards. Massage is a body therapy as well as a daily lifestyle. These massages are of course good for you (well-being massages), but they are also therapeutic.

There are different types of Ayurvedic massage, depending on the imbalance and underlying needs of the person at the time of the consultation, as well as the person's birth constitution.

There are 10 treatments or massages:

*abhyanga: treatment with warm ayurvedic oil

*udvartana: treatment involving friction with plant powders

*garshan: friction treatment

*pizhichil: treatment with oil + heat/sudation

*vishesh: muscle toning treatment

*svedana: sweating

*marmas: treatment of energy points

*shirodhara, takradhara: relaxing forehead treatments

*pindasvedana : massages with massage bags

*external basti : local external treatment treatments for pregnant women, babies and children

The basis of the Ayurvedic constitution. "Five" elements combine to give rise to 3 biological humours, 3 great vital forces that create the body, make it function and destroy it: Doshas

Vata, the wind, is a combination of the elements air and ether. It is the dosha that characterises movement, the driving force. Vata is mainly found in the colon, nervous system, skin, ears and bones. It manages all the body's movements, such as the heartbeat and breathing. It is a rather cold and dry energy. When balanced, it expresses fluidity, creativity and alertness. When out of balance, it creates fear, anxiety and irregularity.


"Pitta", fire, is a combination of the elements fire and water. It is the dosha that characterises transformation and metabolism. This mood is mainly found in the liver, small intestine, blood and eyes. It is a warm, moist energy. It manages digestion, absorption, assimilation and body temperature. When balanced, it expresses itself through tenacity, intelligence and acuity. When out of balance, it creates anger, frustration, hatred and inflammatory states.

"Kapha", water, is a combination of water and earth. It is the dosha that connects and supports, the structuring force. It is mainly found in the stomach, lungs, tongue and plasma. It is a cold, damp energy. It manages the body's lubrication, hydration and immune system. When balanced, it creates love, gentleness and forgiveness. When out of balance, it generates attachment, possession, greed and congestion in the body.

Each person's Ayurvedic constitution is characterised by a specific combination of these 3 doshas. Depending on which doshas dominate, we can determine the patient's physical and psychological type (Prakriti).

When the doshas become unbalanced, dysfunctions and illnesses appear. Ayurveda restores the balance that is specific to each individual and maintains the body's optimal state of health.

The benefits of ayurveda

  • Improves blood and lymph circulation.

  • Facilitates the elimination of toxins from the body

  • Revitalises the body and mind: promotes the body's natural capacity for regeneration and defence

Ayurveda in practice


Branches of ayurveda


This ancestral healthcare system initially comprised 8 branches:

  • Internal medicine (Kaya Chikitsa)

  • Head and neck disease (Shalakya Tantra)

  • Surgery (Shalya)

  • Treatment of poisoning / Science of antidotes (Agadatantra)

  • Paediatrics (Kaumara Bhritya)

  • Rejuvenation / Science of elixirs (Rasayana)

  • Use of aphrodisiacs / Sexual potency and fertility (Vajikarana)

  • Psychology / Science of evil spirits (Bhutavidya)

In India today, Ayurveda remains the reference medicine for the bone system, ophthalmology, dentistry and obstetrics.

However, even if there are branches and areas of expertise, Ayurveda always takes into account the whole being, and the concept of "specialities" found in our Western health systems does not apply.

Diagnosis and treatment in Ayurvedic medicine

During the first consultation, the practitioner gets to know the patient and draws up an Ayurvedic assessment.

The tools used include taking the pulse, observing the tongue, asking about bowel movements (faeces, urine, sweat), eating and living habits, digestion, skin, nails, sleep, the patient's past history, etc.

This assessment enables us to define your constitution and set up a tailor-made programme based on who you are, your personal history, your dysfunctions and your needs.

A wide range of techniques will be used to restore balance, including readjustment to an optimal lifestyle (e.g. daily and seasonal routines), diet (flavours, food combinations and balance), medicinal plants, meditation, breathing (pranayama), yoga, mantras, massage, gems, etc. Panchakarma", which are deep purification cures under medical supervision (e.g. enemas, therapeutic purgations, etc.), may also be considered.

Follow-up consultations allow you to take stock of your balance by adjusting, modifying or extending the methods proposed.

Specialist in Ayurvedic medicine has the capacity:

  • determine the patient's constitution (prakriti) and imbalances (vikriti)

  • draw up a complete Ayurvedic check-up

  • advise and guide the patient in terms of diet, lifestyle and Ayurvedic treatments.

Ayurvedic body treatment therapist

The Ayurvedic body therapist can establish an Ayurvedic constitutional diagnosis (prakrit) and adapt his or her treatments (massages or other treatments) specifically according to this diagnosis.


Contraindications of ayurveda

Ayurvedic massage is not recommended for people with lymphatic cancer.


Experts' opinion

« Ayurveda is becoming more fascinating by the day. This holistic medicine restores balance to the body and enables us to re-develop our natural self-healing capacities. It's a real treasure trove that helps us to get to know ourselves, to re-establish body-mind-soul unity, to reconnect with our bodies and to realise that they are our best allies.

Integrating this art of living into our daily lives connects us to nature and to who we really are. It's an awakening to the self, a revelation of consciousness that reconnects us with our true nature, the one that's there but that we've forgotten, a key that opens us up to our intrinsic power, our inner divinity. Ayurveda restores homeostasis and is the precursor science of epigenetics.

It's a medicine that makes patients competent. In 1903, Thomas Edison said that "The doctor of the future will not give medicines. He will train his patients to take care of their bodies, in nutrition and in the causes and prevention of disease". This is what Ayurveda proposes.

For me, "the joy of the heart is the health of the body": a smile is the beginning of all healing. The OMSEEKHANA team has created this website, which combines traditional Ayurveda with positive thinking and optimism tools. This technique reveals the best version of each patient, whom I call the "Nugget", in a joyful, benevolent and good-humoured way, while cultivating self-love. This art of living is both subtle and powerful, bringing about profound changes and creating lasting fulfilment and harmony.


Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to the individual's life path.

The precision of the diagnosis, together with prescriptions in line with the person's actual situation at a given moment (Vikriti), enables the specialist to support the regeneration and re-harmonisation of the Body-Soul-Spirit system.

This holistic approach to the individual is at the heart of the Ayurvedic perspective on healing.

My role as a specialist is to re-establish the individual, through the various effective ancestral tools offered by this holistic medicine, in the responsibility and real freedom to once again become a 'pro-actor' in his or her own health and well-being. By providing targeted advice, Ayurvedic dietetics opens up a space for profound re-harmonisation and cleansing of lifestyle habits, and for readjustment of the less-than-optimal behaviour and habits that we are subjected to by an automatism whose causes sometimes escape us. Alongside Ayurvedic plants, diet plays a vital role in rebalancing the body and mind.

Arsenal of therapeutic massages offered by this science of long life offers the power to rebalance in the service of concrete, perceptible and visible wellbeing.

The synergy of yoga and the genius of Ayurvedic therapy leads to an elevation of consciousness and vital energy. In the temple of their body, the person feels their Divinity restored and the unity of their body and mind rediscovered".
