AYURVEDA

The keys to longevity, energy and vibrant health can be found in the principles of Ayurveda. With roots in India and Vedic thought, Ayurveda explores how the five fundamental elements of nature – Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space – show up in every living thing, ourselves included. These five elements combine to create the three doshas of Vata (air and space), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (water and earth). We each have a unique percentage of these three doshas that makes up our inherent constitution or Prakruti, and it is this delicate balance of the elements within our body, mind, and spirit that we strive to maintain. 

Ayurvedic medicine is not a one-size-fits-all program; we understand that everyone is unique and your treatment should be as distinct as you are. Together we’ll unlock the unique qualities of your body and mind that will establish the foundation for healthier habits, a stronger body, and a clearer, sharper mind. While Ayurveda has been used for centuries to heal, treat, and prevent a multitude of conditions, we find it particularly powerful in dealing with digestive distress, insomnia, weight management, stress reduction and anxiety.
