What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old traditional system of health-care, which originated in India, and is considered to be the oldest continuously practiced form of health-care in the world. Its purpose is to prevent illness and promote longevity. According to Ayurveda, the key to vibrant health is to understand how one’s unique body-mind interacts with and responds to the environment. Adjustments in lifestyle, diet, and daily routines can be made to harmonize the particular tendencies in each individual and restore balance.

Why Have an Ayurvedic Consultation?

Anyone can benefit from learning and incorporating Ayurveda into their lives. It is suitable for all ages, backgrounds, and levels of well-being. An Ayurvedic consultation can help you understand the unique tendencies of your body-mind. During the consultation, you and the Wellness Counselor will discuss possible imbalances in your body-mind, when considered through the Ayurvedic lens. The Counselor will offer information as to what steps may be taken to restore balance.

What Health Concerns Does Ayurveda Address?

Common wellness concerns discussed in consultations include but are not limited to: disease prevention, stress reduction, improved digestion, sound sleep, safe cleansing practices, using food and herbs to correct imbalances, memory, aching joints, weight loss, emotional balance, skin care, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Consultation Details

Appointments may take up to two hours and consist of a detailed history-taking, in order to clearly assess the Ayurvedic Mind-Body Type (Prakruti), imbalances (Vikruti), and causative factors involved.
Faculty members will guide student interns as they provide their clients with a personalized Ayurvedic Wellness Plan, which may include information about diet, health routine, herbs, yoga, pranayama & meditation.

Note: Ayurvedic counselors are educators, not doctors or diagnosticians.
