Ayurveda is Acupuncture's sister science and the birthplace of Yoga. Much like the texts of Acupuncture, Ayurvedic study, writings and usage date back over 5,000 years. Ayurveda uses the concept of Doshas, which are universal precepts with correlations to nature, to help define body type and determine how to bring one's individual nature back into balance. Each person is treated as an individual which means that no one: diet, routine, pill or practice is the correct one for everyone. Understanding your Dosha can unlock the doors to many simple and chronic health challenges, wieght loss, anxiety, sleep deprivtion and much more.
