The aim of Ayurvedic Therapy: to return the person to a state of health in a gentle way or to keep the healthy organism well and in harmony with itself and nature.

What is Ayurveda?
Literally translated, Ayurveda means “knowledge of life” and includes not only the teaching of illness and its treatment, but also all areas of life. The basis of Ayurvedic medicine is the traditional Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis with the objective of keeping the organism healthy and in harmony with itself and nature. The treatment approaches refer to the areas of nutrition, lifestyle habits, detoxification, mindfulness and marma therapy, the Ayurvedic vital point massage. The Ayurvedic art of healing, which has been practised for over 7000 years, is also known as the mother of medicine and has its origins in India. Both Chinese medicine with the mode of action of acupuncture, the Greek medicine of Hippocrates and the knowledge of Paracelsus can be traced back to Ayurvedic teachings.
The Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha
The individual constitution of a person is defined in Ayurvedic terms using the so-called Doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. If the Dosha constitution, which is typical for the individual, is out of balance, e.g. due to prolonged stress or unfavorable eating habits, diseases can arise. The Ayurvedic treatment initially includes the study of the Dosha distribution, which is reflected in the pulse, among other things. The study is supplemented by a detailed anamnesis and a physical examination. 
Bringing the Doshas into Balance
Often it is simple living or eating habits that are “not good” for the personal Dosha type or the current illness. Through targeted advice, supplemented by phytotherapeutic preparations, i.e. purely herbal medicines, the organism is returned to its own state of health. Many complaints, such as joint problems or symptoms of excessive strain, can also be treated specifically with marma therapy. This gentle form of vital point massage is similar to acupuncture, whereby the effect is achieved by a gentle massage instead of setting needles. 

Ayurvedic therapy through surgery 

Before the Surgery

If you are open to Ayurvedic therapy, maybe even have experience with Ayurvedic medicine, you can let us guide you through Ayurvedic surgeries. The general procedure of the surgery and surgical preparations such as the preliminary surgical and anesthesiological discussion remain unchanged. The surgical incision, however, is marma-friendly if possible. This means that the vital points are spared. On the day before the surgery or, alternatively, on the morning of the surgery, there is a relaxing Let-Go marma massage lasting approx. 20 minutes. This vital point massage helps you to go into the surgery calmly and without fear, so that the stress hormone level is lowered. Immediately after the surgery and—in the case of inpatient interventions—also on the following days, the surgical scar is treated with a special scar oil. This treatment not only clears the scar, but can also lead to a better cosmetic result.

After the Surgery
On the day after the surgery or the day before discharge, the body is strengthened by marma hand treatment. With our patient manager you can choose Ayurvedic meals during your inpatient stay in our clinic. Hot water, ginger and lemon tea are always available. In our meditation room on the 3rd floor you will find a place of silence that is always accessible.
