In order for your practitioner to categorise you as a Vata, Pitta or Kapha constitutional type and to draw up an appropriate personalised treatment and nutrition programme, pulse diagnosis must take place by applying index, middle and ring fingers to the inside of each wrist to feel the pulse with varying amounts of pressure. In addition to a detailed analysis of dietary habits, digestion, sleep behaviour and general way of life, pulse diagnosis provides information about the condition of and interaction between a patient’s body, mind and emotions.

Ayurveda – the name originates from Sanskrit and essentially means ‘science of life’. The ancient Indian holistic system of knowledge is based on the interrelationships of body, mind and spirit, and the mix of three life forces or Doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are responsible for the basic characteristics and respective constitutions of human beings. If these Doshas are unbalanced due to stress, poor nutrition or other influences, we feel physically and mentally unwell. The aim of Ayurveda is to bring the three Doshas together in harmony – this is done through soothing oil massages, purifying measures, Ayurvedic nutrition, meditation, Yoga and more. At the Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof in Hinterthiersee in Tyrol, knowledge of traditional Eastern Ayurveda is integrated into European culture to create a treatment programme geared towards our lifestyles, climatic conditions and eating habits. Hence the resort’s motto ‘Tyrol meets India’. Guests are offered a medical Ayurveda break based on European Ayurveda® and the three pillars of health – Ayurvedic Nutrition, Yoga, Mind Detox & Meditation and Diagnosis & Treatment – that is perfectly in tune with Western requirements and able to deal with modern lifestyle diseases.
