Ayurvedic Spa is a remarkably comprehensive resource for anyone in the home, day, or destination spa business. Melanie and Robert Sachs draw their knowledge from a deep well of diverse training in Indian and Tibetan Ayurveda. Their training has given them the ability to see Ayurveda for what it truly is. While Ayurveda is rich in therapies, lifestyles and constitutional recommendations, what Ayurveda 'is' as the Sachs have so eloquently written, is a universal body of knowledge designed as a system of medicine to purify the physical and subtle bodies and prepare the body/mind to experience its full physical and spiritual potential. It is not only for Hindus nor is it Hindu. It is not a vegetarian system or connected to any other such dogma. It is, by definition, the study of life and therefore all life, be it plant, animal, or human must live in harmony with each other. Nature, the climate, geographical location, seasons, and ethnicity all determine the natural laws that humans have been forced to follow in order to survive. Ayurvedic Spa has taken this precious knowledge of Ayurveda and formatted it for us to successfully introduce into the spa industry and thus the main stream of our culture.
