Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences of health and longevity, sourced in India, dating back over 5,000 years. Ayurveda is said to be the “Mother of all Healing” as many eastern healing traditions share common roots in Ayurveda, including Chinese, Tibetan, Thai medical systems.
Ayurveda is sourced in the five elements of life (ether, air, fire, water, and earth). These elements are brought to life by the mind- body connectors / organizers named the three primary doshas (or natural energy patterns) of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each person is born with a constitution which is a unique combination of these three doshas. Any disturbance of the doshas – due to many factors including, trauma, stress, improper diet and lifestyle habits, or seasonal fluctuations – can result in sickness and disease.
The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda provides the self knowledge necessary to live in accordance with one’s constitutional body wisdom and to uncover the roots of disease thereby restoring balance on all levels of body , mind, and spirit.
Ayurveda utilizes a thorough assessment of pulse, tongue, face, nail, and eye diagnosis to determine the underlying constitution as well as assess the current state of health. As a system of individualized wellness, Ayurveda incorporates specific diet, lifestyle, yoga, and meditation recommendations as well as custom herbal formulas, medicated herbal oils, and a wide range of Ayurvedic therapies including massage, and pancha karma to restore and maintain optimal and radiant health.
