Ayurveda: Restore Inner Balance
Ayurveda, which translates from Sanskrit to mean the ‘Science of Life’, is over 5,000 years old and understood by some to be the oldest healing science. Ayurveda recognizes the presence of health or sickness as an indication of the body, mind, and spirit either being in or out of balance.
Looking at several essential factors, you will learn how to reintroduce and nurture balance back into your life through specific changes in lifestyle.
How Ayurveda can help you:
You will receive a one-on-one consultation to evaluate your present state of health, explore your health history and determine your unique constitution. Following this initial appointment, you will receive an Ayurvedic wellness plan designed to restore or enhance your constitution.
Recommendations are individualized to your needs and may include:
- Nutrition and herbs
- Physical activity
- Seasonal and environmental influences
- Mind-body practices
- Daily routine/circadian rhythm support
- Psychological propensities
