"A holistic, counseling-based approach to healthcare" Ayurveda is a proven system of healing for both mind and body. It is unique not only because it treats the whole person as an individual through natural remedies, but also because it empowers the individual to take part in every aspect of their healthcare. Literally meaning 'the science of life and longevity', Ayurveda is the oldest recorded medicine, dating back about 5000 years. Ayurveda is a holistic counseling-based approach to medicine that empowers people to take part in their healthcare. Ayurveda is effective for prevention, maintenance and disease management of both body and mind. Ayurveda views people as physical, mental/emotional and spiritual beings that have a unique mind/body constitution, or make-up of doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.
Treatment in Ayurveda is through the senses and based upon an individual's unique constitution and current state, according to the doshas. Many of the treatment modalities utilized include: individual diet and lifestyle counseling, traditional body treatments, prescriptive yoga, customized herbal formulas, as well as color and aromatherapy.
