What is Ayurveda?

Discover the Ancient Science of Ayurveda.

Welcome to the world of Ayurveda, a holistic approach to wellness that encompasses all aspects of life. Derived from the words "AYUR" meaning life and "VEDA" meaning science.

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.

Ayurveda is based on the idea that there are three doshas, or body types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each dosha is made up of a combination of the five elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth. A person's dosha is determined by their birthdate, time of day, and place of birth.

Health benefits of Ayurveda:

• Treatments for Arthritis.

• Minimizes Inflammation.

• Reduce Symptoms of Illness & Disease.

• Cleanses the Body.

Shirodara - Ayurvedic Treatment

At Ayurvida Wellness and Clinic, we believe in treating the root cause of ailments, rather than just the symptoms. By taking into account the five natural elements - fire, air, water, space, and earth - and their unique combinations in the human body, we are able to determine an individual's unique constitution, known as dosha in Ayurveda.

By understanding your dosha, we can provide personalized recommendations for lifestyle choices, nutrition, and skincare products that will ensure optimal vitality and balance between the mind, body, and soul.

Ayurveda + Christianne have absolutely changed my life. I was struggling with fatigue, gut health, dry eyes, achey joints, etc. And also had dermatitis around my face and mouth and couldn't figure out how to heal it. After one visit with Christianne, she was able to get me on track with the correct diet for my Pitta dosha along with herbal supplements to support my detox. I felt better within 1-2 weeks of following her guidance - it was seriously MAGIC. I had energy again, all of my dermatitis went away, and I just felt alive for the first time in a long time. She has helped me to understand how foods and emotions affect the body and how to keep myself in balance. And she helped me to release some guilt/grief I had been storing for years. Ayurveda is very gentle and is a true mind and body detox. Would highly recommend Christianne!!

THE QUEEN SHOW 20 June 2021

It took some time for me to make the decision to make an appointment with Christianne because I knew I‘d need to make huge changes. I started my program with her 2 weeks ago and the changes are unbelievable. I feel much better, my pain levels are lower, and I can see a much better future for my health and my body. It was up to me to take care of myself (who else?) and putting my body in the right hands. Christianne definitely is the right person for me, kind, committed and loving.
