Ayurveda: Balancing Mind, Body & Soul

Experience the ancient healing science of India for perfect wellness and prevention and to gain natural beauty within

Ayurveda is one of the fastest growing complimentary healing systems in the United States and offers a unique preventive approach for restoration of health.

This 5,000-year-old natural healing science is experiencing a major resurgence not only in its native land of India, but throughout the world. Thanks to Dr. Lina Thakar, an Ayurvedic physician from India with more than 15 years of experience, Ayurveda has now come to western Pennsylvania. Ayurveda Wellness Center & Holistic Spa is the first and only authentic Ayurveda center in Pittsburgh and the tri-state area offering traditional Ayurvedic treatments.

Ayurveda applies various natural methods to complement the treatment of specific illnesses for faster recovery and prevent recurrence. Through Ayurveda, Dr. Lina says you can reconnect and uncover genuine wellness and ultimate rejuvenation.

“We know that health is not a transitory feeling that takes place on an occasional spa visit. It is about feeling right and looking good, always,” says Dr. Lina, who is also affiliated with Allegheny General Hospital’s Integrated Medicine Program, which offers an integrated approach to conventional and natural healing practices.

Since managing stress is a lifelong process, their spa services are aimed at longer-lasting benefits. Dr. Lina and her staff try to remove the root causes of stress, not just the symptoms.

“We’ll give you the power and the tools to feel right, light and beautiful inside,” she adds. “Whether you’re seeking a wellness consultation, spa therapy, nutrition and cooking session, natural beauty treatment or a detoxification program, we’ll help you restore balance and reawaken your body’s natural healing mechanisms.”
