    It is important that you follow the recommendations. With a consistent and dedicated practice of the lifestyle changes and techniques, you may see changes within a few months.

  • Can Ayurveda heal my fibromyalgia, arthritic pain, headaches, migraines, IBS, PMS?

    According to Ayurveda, health is not merely the absence of disease, but is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being. The central philosophy is that the mind and body are one and the same, and that physical health cannot be achieved without emotional, mental and spiritual health. It recognizes that physical symptoms of pain or discomfort that manifest in the body, or mental and emotional turmoil are the tip of the iceberg and the underlying causes need to be addressed in order for an individual to heal completely.  We also use Yoga Therapy which is a sister science of Ayurveda, and other modalities to heal mind, body and spirit.  See testimonials

  • How does Ayurveda help with healing?

    The body has an innate ability to heal and Ayurvedic techniques allow for that process to occur naturally. Every individual is born with their own natural balance and sometimes this natural balance gets disturbed due to various reasons that may include work/family/relationship stresses or other environment related issues.  Healing can occur through multiple modalities, so it is important to recognize that each individual has a unique mind/body constitution that must be honored in order for healing to occur.

  • What is Ayurveda?

    Ayurveda is the “science of life” and is an ancient natural healing system that originated in India over 5000 years ago. It is a part of Vedic Science which includes yoga, meditation, breathing techniques, herbs, bodywork, massage, and more to heal the mind body and spirit. Ayurveda reflects the healing wisdom of ancients in the East and is based on the some basic principles that can be learned and practiced by everyone, so they feel empowered to lead a healthy lifestyle.

    Ayurveda indicates that a healthy person is one whose basic physiological functions are being performed normally, appetite and digestion are strong, elimination is regular, and there is a general sense of well-being in the mind, body and spirit. To this end, Ayurveda aims to identify imbalances in the mind/body system as early as possible in the pathogenesis if the disease, so they can be eliminated and the body can be brought back into a state of homeostasis.

    It is important for each individual to understand their own mind/body type and be able to apply the principles to correct any imbalances that may occur during the course of one’s lifetime.
