Spa Ceylon is the first and only holistic wellness brand in Singapore that dedicates itself to the art of Ayurveda. Considered by many to be the oldest of healing arts, Ayurveda (practiced in the grand palaces of Ceylon thousands of years ago) is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Ayus’ and ‘Veda’ which means, ‘life’ and ‘knowledge or science’. Ayurveda is a holistic approach that treats the root cause of illness, in body or mind. The Ayurveda treatment is dispensed based on the distinct pattern of energy or Dosha (Vatha, Pitha and Kapha) possessed by all individuals. It is through the balance of the Doshas that the mental and physical wellbeing of each individual are achieved.
Vatha Dosha – Tend to be more on the fragile side and lean. This constituency leads to people with the Vatha characteristics to have dry scalp and hair with rough, wrinkled and sometimes cracked skin.
Pitha Dosha – Those with Putha characteristics tend to be strong and are usually medium body types. They have weak and thinning hair, light skin that freckles and gets sun burnt easily.
Kapha Dosha – Those with dominant Kapha characteristics tend to be more on the larger boned side. They generally have soft and thick hair, skin consistence that is more oily, smooth and moist.
Inspired by royal relaxation, rejuvenation and the age-old healing rituals of Ayurveda wisdom, Spa Ceylon ranges are exquisitely formulated to provide the ultimate in luxury for health, well-being and relaxation.
