Ayurveda in Germany
Here in Germany Ayurveda is not recognized as medicine. For this reason, Prabha Burkhard BAMS can not offer some treatments as they can be practiced in India. Rather, Prabha Burkhard BAMS works with the company consultant, management coach and coach (and husband) Jürgen Burkhard in his practice for psychotherapy (HPG), where they combine elements of Ayurveda with psychotherapy to a holistic health and life counseling.
