The Essence of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the ancient system of natural medicine from India that has been practiced for over 5000 years for both the prevention and treatment of illness and to enhance wellbeing.
The Sanskrit word Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life.” And by this, we mean knowing how to create balance and harmony within ourselves and our life.
Ayurveda is a holistic health system and combines a number of approaches to restore balance and harmony to your body and mind, including:
- Nutritional suggestions
- Daily routines and lifestyle practices in accordance with the season
- Yoga, meditation and breathing practices
- Therapeutic treatments
- Herbs and herbal oils
- Cleansing techniques and detoxification
While Ayurveda has originated in India, it is both universal in its relevance and also deeply personal by nature.
Your unique mind-body type
According to Ayurveda, we are all made up of the universal elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. These element combine to create what’s known as doshas or dynamic forces. They are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
- Vata is the combination of Ether (or Space) and Air
- Pitta is the combination of Fire and Water
- Kapha is the combination of Earth and Water
While we each have all of the doshas within us, we tend to have one or two that predominate our constitution creating our unique mind-body type.
From an Ayurvedic perspective, imbalances within these doshas are the cause of illness and disease.
Our treatment plans are tailored to help restore balance and harmony to your body and mind, and equip you with the skills and practices to gain and sustain wellbeing so that you can live your fullest life.
We offer a range of Ayurveda Consultations, Treatments and packages specifically designed to ease tension and restore balance and harmony to your body and mind.

What People are Saying
“Sre is simply the BEST! ”
Sre is simply the BEST! (Better than all the rest…) He’s an incredible healer and a beautiful man. I’ve been seeing him regularly for well over six years now and I can’t recommend him highly enough! My wife also thoroughly enjoyed his pregnancy massages when she was rather round.
“A light and plant filled lovely studio”
I almost don’t want to share with the world how wonderful Sre’s Ayurvedic massages are, because I’m worried that when everyone finds out, it will be impossible to get an appointment with him anymore! I have been going to Sre for massages for a number of years now, and I can honestly say that he is incredibly gifted. I often find my body needs a strong massage as I have a lot of tightness, tension and pain that needs to be worked on. Yet what I actually want is an enjoyable, relaxing and balancing massage. Well, with Sre, you get ALL of these things. He manages to remove the tension and pain from my body, but I still manage to have an absolutely beautiful and relaxing experience. His massages are so good that I travel from Geelong to Melbourne for one of them! He uses beautiful Ayurvedic oils and he has a light and plant filled lovely studio at the Abbotsford Convent. Also, Sre is just an all round lovely human (as is his wife Jess) and I can’t recommend him enough.
“Without hesitation I recommend Sre ”
I have known Sre for many years now. I went for treatment of my knee pain stemming out of an accident that I had as a teenager. I am now 50 years old. Sre was my last hope as I had been to many practioners and all could only help me get temporary relief from my pain. At the start of my treatment, Sre looked at my complete history, x-rays, MRI reports and tailored the treatment plan according to my needs. I had my treatment for an year and it’s been two years now that I am completely pain free. Without hesitation I will recommend Sre for treatment if you are suffering from old injury or chronic pain or simply want a good message. Sre is genuine, professional and knows what he is doing.
“Knowledgeable and intuitive”
Beautiful Ayurvedic massage. Sre is very knowledgeable and intuitive with his treatments. He was very mindful of sensitivity with my low back and released the tension that was causing some issues for me. Very lucky to have stumbled across One Big Love on my short trip. Definitely recommend and will be coming back next time I am visiting Melbourne. Thank you One Big Love
