What Is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of healing which is translated to mean "the science of life." According to Ayurveda, everything is made up of a unique combination of five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. Ayurveda seeks to maintain an equilibrium of these five elements within each individual.
In our consultations together we will map out an individual process for you that includes taste (diet), sound (mantra), sight (color therapy), smell (aromatherapy) and touch (massage).
Ayurveda is a lifelong journey of learning, balance and healing. My goal for you is to provide you with practical and achievable steps that you can take yourself between sessions. Working together should feel like consistent and manageable progress towards our overall goals together.
Are you ready to begin living your best life?
We will determine your Dosha(unique elemental makeup) and your imbalances. You will leave with a greater understanding of yourself and a few changes to implement until our next meeting.
Months 3 & 4: Personal Health Goals
We will begin to focus more specifically on your personal health goals to take steps forward in that direction. We lay the foundation for success 1st and then dive deeper into specifics.
Months 7 & 8: Reflection & Re-Evaluation
We will re evaluate your past health concerns & goals and begin to notice new ones arise. In these months we will also be starting a new season and go through your specific diet & lifestyle for the new season.
Months 11 & 12 Assess & Evolve
We will look at how the new concerns or goals have been addressed continue with more modalities touch, color, sound & scent.
Months 1 & 2: Routine & Diet
We will go through a specialized daily routine and food plan for the current season. Most of my clients begin to experience more energy and eased digestion within the first 2 months.
Months 5 & 6: The Senses
We will continue to address your specific health goal adding in aspects of touch, sound, color and scent. Your routine and diet will begin to feel fully integrated as well.
Months 9 & 10 Deepen Understanding
Now that you have almost completed the year we will talk through how you are personally experiencing and understanding your elemental makeup & imbalance/balance. What we have worked so long on should now begin to feel intuitive.
*We address seasonal changes every 3-4 months
Ayurvedic Spices, Herbs, Supplements and Oils...
As a part of your consultation I may recommend specific spices, herbs, oils or supplements to help guide you into balance. These will always be optional, but may help facilitate your healing (especially for the digestive tract and skin)
I am have researched various brands and products to find the best and most cost effective options for my clients. For all herbs, oils and spices I highly recommend Banyan Botanicals, a organic Ayurvedic company founded in New Mexico under the supervision of Dr. Vasant Lad that helps protect and cultivate endangered Indian herbs. For essential oils I recommend Rose Mountain Herbs, a family owned ethical and organic company in Oregon.
I will always help my clients find exactly what they need and ONLY if they need it. Our bodies are complex systems that can only handle 1 or 2 herbs at a time because they create a unique balance together.
