Ayurveda (eye-your-veda) is the ancient science of life from India. “Ayur” means “life” and “veda” translates to “science, knowledge or wisdom”. Ayurveda is a 7,000 year old science of life. It is ancient, yet its principles are as applicable today as they were so many years ago.
You do not have to know about Ayurveda in order to benefit from a treatment or consultation. In fact, every person’s experience is different, which is what Ayurveda is all about. You begin the journey exactly where you are, then director, Darci Frankel, custom tailors it to fit your unique needs.
