After moving to America from India, Suparna and Abhay Salunke realized they took the wellness practices from their childhoods for granted. The couple now runs AyurvaWellness, a Cedar Park wellness center built on the principles of Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old Indian medicine practice.

“The favorite part [about the business] is that it makes us connect to our roots, where we belong to, and at the same time we can give these very things which we love and appreciate and bring to the community,” Abhay said. “That’s a wonderful thing to do; that’s one of the best connections we can make.”

He said Ayurveda is becoming more relevant to American culture as people turn to herbal remedies, organic foods and yoga.

“What makes Ayurveda different than any other medicine is the way we understand our body,” Suvarna Daherkar, the business’s Ayurvedic consultant, said. “According to Ayurveda, the body is made up of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each of them are called as doshas. All of them in a … state of balance causes health.”

Suparna said all of the services—including massages, yoga, detox programs, relaxation techniques and more—are customized for each individual client’s specific imbalances and body constitution. For example, if a client had a Vata imbalance, AyurvaWellness would offer special massage oils formulated for his or her constitution.

“It is all customer-based, on clients’ needs, on body constitution,” Suparna said. “Everybody is individually customized … not each person is [the] same, so all these oils, what we use, they are based on each person’s body constitution.”

The Salunkes said when their company first opened in fall 2017, the community had little knowledge of Ayurveda. To combat this challenge, AyurvaWellness began offering regular educational seminars. Now they run seminars once a quarter.

“[My] favorite part … is really we want to make a difference in [the] community,” Suparna said. “We are trying to help everyone understand how important health is.”

Here are five of many services offered by AyurvaWellness:


1. Ayurvedic head massage
2. Himalayan salt scrub
3. Ultrasonic facial
4. Hot stone therapy
5. Deep-tissue massage
