You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. ~Buddha
In the ancient Vedic Sanskrit, Ayur, meaning "life", and Veda, meaning "knowledge", come together as Ayurveda, "the science of life" or "the knowledge of living". The oldest continually practiced medical system in history, Ayurveda encompasses life - body, mind and spirit - focusing on the prevention of disease and the body's natural ability to cure. Prevention starts with a lifestyle that is balanced and in harmony with natural cycles. When one's physical existence is in harmony with nature, the emotional and spiritual bodies reflect this harmony.
Ayurveda recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and honors the many factors that combine to determine who we are. The Ayurvedic path to wellness is customized to suit the specific mind-body type (Prakruti) and unique set of circumstances of each client. On the path to wellness, clients are active participants, becoming ever-increasingly self-aware and empowered by the knowledge that healing starts within.
