Ayurvedic practitioners are educated in a variety of schools and colleges. There is a considerable difference in what a practitioner offers due to the background that a practitioner may have brought with them to the study of Ayurveda. For example, the practitioner may be a medical doctor, naturopathic doctor, chiropractic doctor, nurse, yoga teacher, nutritionist, or massage therapist. If the practitioner already had a health career prior to studying Ayurveda, they will likely utilize their knowledge of Ayurveda within that chosen career.

There may be a focus on Ayurvedic spa therapies including abyhanga (Ayurvedic massage), shirodhara (oil streamed onto the forehead), swedana (herbalized steam), stone therapy massage, pizichil (whole body oiling), facials, herbal wraps, ubtans (massage with herbal body paste), and many other specialized Ayurvedic techniques. Other practitioners may focus on teaching and guiding a client through lifestyle changes.

In general, Ayurvedic consultants work to balance the dosha imbalance (imbalance in the body "humors" or characteristics). They may offer the detoxification program known as pancha karma (five detoxification therapies), as well as nutrition and lifestyle guidance, and recommendations of Ayurvedic natural herbs. Through their knowledge of the science of Ayurveda, they can assist a client in setting up daily routines (dinacharya) and seasonal routines (ritucharya) that can bring about the desired balance to release stress and help to ward off dis-ease.
