Ayurveda (“Ire-veh-dah”), an ancient healing science from India, is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It aims to integrate and balance the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda focuses not only on the treatment and prevention of illness, but on the removal of blockages to experiencing a more vibrant, peaceful, and happy life. Some of its therapeutic approaches include diet, herbs, yoga, breathing, sweating, and massage.
In the transcendent state of bliss, deep transformation and healing can occur.
These Ayurvedic therapies are heavenly as one-time treatments, though they are traditionally given multiple times in a course, and we believe their benefits are greatly enhanced when received in a series.
