Āyurveda has been practiced for over 5,000 years, with its roots in India. It is a holistic heath care system focusing on diet, lifestyle and use of herbs to maintain health and facilitate healing. We work on the principle of like increases like, and opposites balance. Using the five great elements of nature and their qualities, we learn to live in harmony with nature, rather than fighting against it, to bring profound healing and enhance the quality of life for all beings. Āyurveda is a Sanskrit word, translating to knowledge, science, or wisdom of life.
