Ayurveda, the "Science of Life," is a natural healing system, often described as the the sister to the art and science of Yoga. Ayurvedic treatments and consultations focus upon restoring harmony in the body and mind. Based upon the rhythms of nature, Ayurveda examines one's balance or imbalance (often called disease) using body/mind type and pulse assessment. Then gentle suggestions through diet, daily routine, seasonal indications, bodywork and herbs are offered to help recreate balance and alleviate longstanding problems in the body and mind. Depending upon the clients’ current state of health, suitable body treatments can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual.
Our treatments are offered by experienced practitioners, Krishna Peter Perry and Aiyana Athenian, both licensed massage therapists and certified Ayurvedic consultants. Healing arts sessions are offered out of our Camden office at the Knox Mill or by house-call. To schedule an appointment call (207) 790-3280 or click here.
