Ayurveda means the science of life.  It is a philosophy for living a full and healthy life.   The Chakra System, Yoga and Indian Head Massage are all part of this ancient health care system.

Having a knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine can help you understand why your energy levels are low or why you get recurrent illnesses.
