Lakshmi Ayurveda Wellness Centre
Lakshmi Ayurveda is a centre for promoting health and wellbeing. Our aim is to bring the essence of Ayurveda to Australia making it easily accessible for everyone. The centre is run by a fully accredited and qualified Ayurveda practitioner.
The focus is on offering practical advice through consultation on diet and lifestyle, aiming to restore or improve one’s health through massage, immunity increasing treatments, Panchakarma (body purification) and potent organic herbal supplements. Our objective is to teach individuals how to create and maintain balance in their body and mind. We endeavour to provide safe, effective and authentic organic Ayurvedic medicines and therapies.
We seek to offer a place of comfort, relaxation, tranquillity and peace. Finally we aspire to bring joy to our patients, as only a healthy body, mind and spirit can experience.
Lakshmi Ayurveda is primarily concerned with disease prevention, cure and rejuvenation (Rasayana).
