Esencia is a holistic healing and natural medicine practice primarily based on the practices and teachings of Āyurveda, the traditional medicine of India.
Esencia is about working with the essence of health. When you’re faced with challenges to your health and well-being, it can indicate that there is an imbalance in some aspect of your life. If there is some way in which your needs are not being met, it can cause stress to your body, mind, or spirit.
Thus any illness can be seen as an invitation for us to reevaluate our lives, examine ourselves more deeply, and come to a better understanding of what we need in order to live a healthy life in body, mind, and spirit. And everything we learn about ourselves and how to act skillfully and consciously takes us one step closer to a state of balance in all aspects of life.
Āyurveda is the traditional medicine of India. “Āyu” in Sanskrit refers to life, and “veda” refers to knowledge or science. Therefore, Āyurveda is usually translated as “The Science of Life.” Ayurveda is a combination of traditions and practices from across the Indian subcontinent, including the use of medicinal plants, administration of cleansing and healing therapies, and the incorporation of proper diet and lifestyle.
