The Ayurvedic healing system is almost 5,000 years old. The philosophy underlying Ayurveda is very similar to the philosophy of Chinese Traditional Medicine. It envisions the body as a seat of great intelligence and explores the principles of maintaining energetic balance within our cells. In my practice, I often offer Ayurvedic assessment and recommendations, if the patient is interested. Some of the common Ayurvedic treatments I use are vegan organic herbs, breathing techniques, massage, dietary interventions and applications of therapeutic oils.
I love Ayurveda with all my heart. It explains so much of the mystery in the way that patients react differently to seasons, foods and medications. Ayurveda stands for empowering the patient with the knowledge about themselves and the world around them and creating optimal conditions for the body to heal itself.
