As an Ayurvedic practitioner you will be able to help clients to escape emotional, mental and physical discomfort and illness by rebalancing the tridoshas – vata, pitta, and kapha.
You will learn how this is done through a combination of lifestyle modification, dietary advice, herbal treatment, massage, and the unique detoxification method known as panchakarma.
This 5000-year-old science-based tradition is recognized alongside mainstream medicine in countries such as India and Sri Lanka. It incorporates everything from diet, lifestyle, herbal medicine to yoga, and massage therapy, blending the laws of nature with scientific processes to remedy a range of conditions.
