The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words Ayu, meaning ‘life’, and Veda, meaning ‘science’. It is an ancient art of healing hailing down from over five thousand years ago that relies on natural remedies to improve health and longevity of life.
Ayurvedic treatments have gained international fame for their health-friendly and environmentally-friendly methods. Ayurveda also offers vitalizing treatments for everyday life that can de-stress your body, nourish your skin and add a shine to your hair.
