The term Ayurveda is a compound of the Sanskrit words for "life" and "science," and its practice draws from an ancient and established tradition of keeping humans in harmony with the world around them. At Kerala Ayurveda, licensed practitioners opt for natural products and noninvasive procedures, instead of surgeries and cybernetic implants. Some of the traditional treatments offered include pouring a thin stream of warm natural oils onto the forehead to reduce stress, opening pores with steam baths, and refreshing the whole body with acupressure massage. They nurture both mind and body with various Ayurvedic therapies, including oil massages, poultices, steam baths, and relaxation techniques.
