Ayurveda uses a personalized approach to health. During consultations we determine your specific mind-body type or constitution which allows you to make optimal choices about nutrition, exercise, supplements, and all other aspects of your lifestyle. A primary mode for determine one's constitution and state of imbalance is through listening to the pulse. This science of life connects you with your optimum health, and allows obstacles, created by the body and mind, to fall away. We work together to determine a protocol that is appropriate and manageable. Clients come away with wellness plans that incorporate any combination of diet, lifestyle, herbs, yoga, meditation and cooking/food preparation recommendations.
Follow-up consultations allow clients to return to review progress made, challenges met, questions developing, and to receive continued support in response to the original protocol. We assess any changes experienced or new conditions developed and review your chief concerns to guide future treatment.
Follow-up consultations are scheduled on a case-by-case basis and based on your individual needs.
Packages of 3 and 5 sessions are available. Please inquire for more information.

Oil treatments, known as basti, in Ayurveda involve the local application of medicated oils to various parts of the body including neck, low back, heart, pelvis, navel and spine. A vital tool in pain management, these oil treatments heal by means of drawing out chemical toxicity and releasing emotional sources of pain that stagnate in the tissues.
MARMA THERAPY - Acupressure

Activating marma points through simple, mindful and systemic pressure by the practitioner opens the channels of the body, allowing prana or vital energy in the body to flow naturally. Marma treatments have both immediate and long-term benefits of regulating hormone levels, harmonizing neurochemical secretions, and allowing for the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms to function optimally.
