Ayurvedic Rituals

DETAILED CONSULTATION

Detailed questions about personal lifestyle precede any treatment. At the
core of Ayurvedic philosophy is the concept of the three body types
(doshas) – vata, pitta and kapha – the vital energies that make up each
constitution. Assessing the balance of these energies allows the
practitioner to suggest the most appropriate treatment.
