Ayurveda is an ancient science that believes in healing diseases by adopting a holistic approach. The first and foremost aim of Ayurveda treatment is to safeguard the health of the healthy individual and to increase longevity.

Ayurveda is the rich storehouse of time-tested and effective recipes for the treatment of several obstinate and otherwise incurable diseases. What is more important than these recipes is the specialised therapies practised to cure such diseases. These therapies strengthen the immune system of the body and thus helps in the prevention of diseases resulting in the preservation and promotion of positive health. These specialised therapies in Ayurvedic Science are called PANCHAKARMA.

There are three senses of humour which act as pillars to support the proper functioning of the body. The derangement in the humour causes illness. The natural constitution (Prakrithi) of an individual and deranged state of the body in an illness (Vikrithi) are expressed as Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. Medicines and herbs are grouped based on their effects on the senses of humour.

Experienced therapists conduct all therapies related to Ayurveda treatment under the supervision of qualified Ayurvedic Consultants.
