How to choose a treatment to balance doshas (imbalances)?

Vata dosha is described as air and space, governing the function of movement within our body and mind. A nourishing full body massage, hand massage or back massage instantly will ground vata dosha.

Pitta dosha is described as fire and water. The fire element, controls enzymatic and hormonal functions. As pitta dosha often retains the heat, it requires you to let off the steam. A relaxing full body massage with soothing oils and forehead oil flow will balance pitta dosha at its core.

Kapha dosha is described as water and earth. It embodies cohesion and lubrication of the body and mind. Out of balance kapha dosha causes congestion. Ayurvedic facial and herbal powders scrub treatment will reduce congestion, detoxify and help with loose weight loss.
