At AcuAyur Holistic Health Centre, we advise to the patient about good nutrition, exercise, Yoga -meditation, and stress management.

Herbal supplements are prescribed for some conditions while other conditions are treated with Ayurvedic treatment / massages.
Ayurveda can help babies, children and teenagers, adults, seniors, and during pregnancy. Ayurveda offers therapies for all health concerns. The basic view of Ayurveda is that a living being is a combination of three energy-elements: air (called Vayu or Vata), fire (called Pitta), and water (called Kapha). When these elements are balanced, one is healthy. Illness is defined as an imbalance of these elements; all disorders are excesses of one or more element. Special Treatment in Ayurveda are:
