Indian Ayurveda

The word meaning of Ayurveda is “SCIENCE OF LIFE”. Ayurveda emphasizes prevention and health promotion and provides treatment for diseases. Ayurveda uses diet changes, herbal formulas, and body therapies as well as lifestyle changes to maximize the body’s healing potential and to maintain a balanced state of vital energies.

No single program can be a help for all persons.
As the healing approach in Ayurveda is strictly individualistic, the healing of the mind/body problems varies from person to person. Hence along with the disease, the diseased also should be thoroughly assessed. It is also important to assess the inherent constitution (PRAKRUTHI)and any imbalanced state (VIKRUTHI) especially any digestive issue to plan the healing journey.
Detox plan starts with 1hr initial assessment, followed by herbal teas & some diet modification, and few sessions of powder massage.
