Ayurvedic Bodywork

What is Ayurveda?

Āyurveda emphasizes the whole person - body, mind and spirit and provides guidelines for living a life that is in harmony with the environment and its natural cycles. According to Āyurveda, health is not just the absence of disease but a state where the body is functioning optimally and the mind is serene. In a balanced state an individual can experience more vitality, happiness and well-being in every day life.
