Ayurvedic body therapies use herbal oils to establish well-being in the body and mind.

Ayurveda is a natural system of health and well-being and the sister science to yoga. It originated in India thousands of years ago.

As a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Ayurveda can support your health needs in various ways. Ayurveda uses diet, herbal remedies, lifestyle tools, and body therapies to establish health in the body and mind.

Like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature. They are earth, air, fire, water, and ether. According to Ayurveda, these elements are present in the environment around us as well as within us.

Good health is a state of balance of these five elements. Maintaining balance is the key and that involves many things. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships, and habitat are all factors that can affect your natural state of balance. If you know your body type you can create a healthy lifestyle and greater well-being.

Discover Your Body Type

In Ayurveda, the five elements are organized into three fundamental principles called doshas. The three doshas are vata dosha, pitta dosha, and kapha dosha. Each of us is composed of some combination of these three doshas.

Doshas govern the various processes of the body and mind. They create your uniqueness. With some knowledge of the doshas you can begin to track your state of health or your level of balance. Maintain a balance of the doshas to maintain health and prevent future illness from occurring.

Find Ayurveda Near You

Consult an Ayurvedic practitioner to determine your body type and your natural state of balance. At an Ayurvedic consultation practitioners use visual clues, ask questions and listen to your pulse to tell what your doshas are. You’ll learn your natural state of balance and if any imbalance is occurring. The diet, lifestyle measures, and herbal supplements that will bring you back into balance will be discussed.  

You can also take an online dosha quiz to get a general idea of your body type.  

Ayurvedic remedies and healthy living tips are trusted tools you can use throughout your life. Ayurveda has existed for thousands of years. Get to know your unique body type and make your life a breeze.
