Sama Ayurveda is a holistic healthcare center that uses the knowledge of the 5000 year old ancient Indian medical system.
In Sanskrit, Sama means balance andAyurveda is made of 2 words: Ayur + veda, meaning life + knowledge, so Sama Ayurveda means the knowledge to balance life.
At Sama Ayurveda, we also focus on balancing the mind by using Pranayama in addition to a balanced diet & lifestyle and incorporation of herbs, panchkarma, and other therapies.
