In the ancient language of Sanskrit, the word "Ayur" means life and the word "Veda" means knowledge. Taken together, these words mean knowledge of life. The Indian Ayurvedic system dates back at least 2,500 years. It literally translates as the science of longevity.

In Ayurveda medicine, Kapha is known as the mucous carrying lymph in the body. An Ayurvedic massage increases the lymph flow. The Lymph system carries nutrients to the cells, waste products and foreign particles away from the cells, and wastes from the body. This lymph massage literally feeds the body with its own reprocessed food of recycled Lymph.
