“AMUNA” carries the concept of providing a holistic and authentic Sri Lankan Traditional Herbal experience to ensure a relaxed and unforgettable healthy holiday. Ayurvedic traditional medicine is a major part of Sri Lankan culture.
The history of Ayurveda in Sri Lanka ranges back nearly 3,000 sustained by kings who were also skilled physicians. The methods and organization of this practice was well advanced, and the mountain Mihintale holds the ruins of what is widely believed to be the world’s first hospital. Ayurvedic physicians were revered by royal patronage and a well-known Sri Lankan saying tells us: “If you cannot be a king, become a healer.”
The five senses are the gateways to how we experience life – and it is important that they all work in harmony for us to live our most pure life. All aspects of our lives affect health and disease – from nutrition, career, our mental frame of mind, to the relationships we have with family and those around us. When one area falters or is weak – we as a whole, and all areas begin to suffer. The mind ties this all together, and reacts to situations based on the information and experiences gathered by the senses. A clear and calm frame of mind will allow us to deal with any problems – mental, spiritual, or physical to the best of our abilities.
Ayurveda is a holistic path that looks at all aspects of one’s life. Not only will your body received healing, but your mind and soul will also be rejuvenated. It is through creating a balance with the healing of all components that Ayurveda offers a treatment path unlike any other.
