What is Ayurveda?
A Sanskrit word meaning “knowledge of life,” this holistic work focuses on the body as a whole to achieve symbiotic wellness spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. Ayurveda focuses to wholly energize and nourish your body. Originating from India, this ancient practice has influenced the world- to be modified and perfected over the centuries becoming what is known as “modern medicine”; today, many Western medicine practices and studies owe their homage to the art of Ayurveda, including physiology and internal medicine.
The five main senses serve as our connection to the five main elements: air, earth, ether, fire and water. Through these senses and elements come three basic forms of energy that can be found all around us and within us. These principals, called doshas, are: Vata, air and ether; Pitta, fire and water; and Kapha, water and earth. Imbalances with these doshas causes undue stress and physical ailments, including the buildup of toxins in the body. Ayurveda works with medicated oils and the implementation of lifestyle enhancements that will detoxify and nourish the nervous system to heal your doshas.

LED Light Bed
Enjoy a relaxing 15-20 minute session in the full-body LED light bed to rejuvenate the body and mind. Light therapy is known to energize, detoxify and activate the body’s natural healing powers by initiating cell turnover and DNA repair to reverse signs of aging and promote well-being.
LED light bed therapy is a regenerative approach to anti-aging. Unlike tanning beds, with LED light there is no thermal damage to the skin, and the non-invasive treatment promotes cell creation and turnover. Our LED light therapy bed penetrates the skin and kick starts the body’s natural internal processes. Collagen production is activated and strong circulation is promoted.
Users of the light therapy bed relax in the warm, rejuvenating bed per and see results immediately afterward.
