ABOUT AYURVEDA

The word Ayurveda translates to “the science of life.” It is the earliest system of medicine that teaches us how to live in tune with nature, thus our own human nature. 

Through diet, lifestyle adjustments, herbal medicines and body treatments, this science does not only make one feel healthier, but more importantly relieves the stress and density of the physical, so we have more clarity in mind. From this place, we can tap into our true being, reside in more contentment, and evolutionarily and calmingly flow through life, rather than be paddling upstream.
