Ayurveda is the ancient medicine of India.


It is thought of by many scholars to be the oldest form of health care in the world. Originating over 3000 years ago, it was used to heal, maintain a high quality of life and to increase the longevity of the individual. It is an art of daily living that has evolved from practical, philosophical and spiritual insight.

In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means the “Science of Life.” Life is the integration of body, mind and consciousness. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through diet, lifestyle, yoga and meditation practice. As well as the use of foods, herbs, oils and rejuvenating therapies.
