Ayurveda for pain and injury management
While Ayurveda provides a vast guide of practical advice and wisdom on almost every aspect of your health, Kalari Ayurveda Centre specialise in its use for pain and injury management.
We use Ayurvedic principles as a guide for how pain manifests in your body, and how it can make you more susceptible to injuries.
As well as looking at the location of pain, the cause of injury and the structures involved – joint, muscle, ligaments, tendons, etc. Ayurveda pays close attention to the type of pain you are suffering from. It classifies pain according to the balance of the Doshas and presence of Ama.
This detailed examination allows us to accurately determine the disturbance in your system and choose the appropriate therapies to treat the whole system.

Pain can be created and aggravated through improper diet, digestion and elimination. Incompletely digested foods create toxins and impurities that can then block the channels of circulation. These toxins become lodged inside the body gradually leading to stiffness in your body and finally to the onset of pain.
Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Daily Routine
Ayurveda places great importance on your lifestyle. When you eat, sleep and exercise in constantly fluctuating patterns, your body loses its natural balancing cycles and cannot cleanse or repair itself as effectively. Regularity in your daily routine is effective in reducing physiological imbalance at the basis of chronic pain.
