Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge).

Over 5,000 years ago, the sages and scientists of India described and developed one of the most thoroughly advanced systems of life, rather than just a physical medicine system. Forever coded into The Vedas, a collection of spiritual texts, Ayurveda takes into account the mental-emotional-physical-spiritual aspects of one’s life to fully understand the individual and his/her unique needs. The wisdom woven by these sages is being realized by current scientific evidence in modern medicine to further validate its potential in allowing one’s body to heal, live optimally, and live a vital and vibrant life to promote longevity. As a holistic system, Ayurveda is geared towards prevention, health and wellness, and cure as opposed to dis-ease or symptoms management.

With time-tested therapies, Ayurveda recognizes each individuals’ unique makeup and alignment in nature, ultimately working to find harmony within the individual, and with the individual and its environment.

Ayurvedic Therapies: Therapy and treatment is determined after undergoing an Ayurvedic assessment, which includes a thorough history, examination (including a tongue and pulse assessment), and analysis.

Some therapies include:

  • Lifestyle/Daily Routine
  • Dietary Modification
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Mediation (Dhyana) and Breathing Practices (Pranayama)
  • Yoga
  • Detoxification/Cleansing
  • Bodywork: Abhyanga (Ayurvedic massage), Marma Point Therapy, Bastis
