What is Ayurveda?

Simply put, Ayurveda is an ancient healing science designed to bring the body back to optimal health and balance, so it can heal itself.

In discovering Ayurveda, you will find there are many methodologies that work together to create whole health and healing. Ayurveda goes beyond symptoms to uncover the root of the imbalance, and works with the body and mind to create harmonious systems, constitution, and an overall environment.

Nutrition, herbs, mediation, yoga, massage, along with creating a balanced lifestyle in harmony with the seasons, are all important aspects of Ayurveda. Designed to heal the whole person, this healing science helps you find your rhythm within daily and seasonal routines to ensure maximal health, mental clarity, and longevity.

Going to sleep and rising with the sun, eating seasonal foods for your region, and building your activities around the natural rhythms of the day are all simple and profound ways to stay in harmony with nature.

Ayurvedic medicine also recognizes that one’s individual nature is reflected in their body type, or dosha. The doshas represent three main principles of nature, called vata (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth-water).

Each person is a unique combination of these three principles or doshas. Once we’ve determined your body type (which we will do in your initial intake), Ayurveda provides regimens to align our internal nature with the larger cycles of nature, such as the daily rhythms and seasonal cycles. What we eat, how we exercise, when we sleep, and even where we choose to live, will be unique to each person.

Ayurveda is a powerful yet nurturing way to nourish your body back to its natural state of optimal health—and to proactively maintain your ideal balance. Whatever your current state of health, Ayurveda is designed to help you to create a balanced mind-body for life!
