Diet & Lifestyle Consultation
Have you read a few ayurvedic books but are not sure how to incorporate all this new information into your life? This session if for people who want to start living in a more ayurvedic way but don't know where to start (or what to do next!). We will analyse how you are eating and living and how you can be more focused and clear about what ayurvedic protocol will be best for you.
This consultation focuses on what you do at home and less on herbs, treatments and formulas.
In-depth Health Consultation
This detailed process requires a deep assessment of what is going on in your body, why it is happening and what has happened to get you where you are today, and how to correct it from the perspective of Classical Ayurveda. This interview gives me the information I need about your diet, lifestyle, history, needs, dedication, and interests which I use to start you on an individualized Ayurveda health plan to include the broad spectrum of Ayurvedic healing tools: diet and lifestyle protocal, herbal formulas, cleanses, treatments, meditation, breathing, yoga. Herbs and oils are an additional charge.
Continue to grow and heal with ongoing care as you learn to understand your body and create balance with ayurveda. After your initial consultation we can meet monthly, every other month, or seasonally to fine tune herbal supplements, react to changes in your life, or work on deeper issues.
If you are not ready to dive in with a full consultation or have a specific question about Ayurveda and how it might help you can dip your toes in.
A great deal can be gained from a short interview about what diet and lifestyle practices will help you find balance. Please remember that you must complete an intake questionnaire before you arrive so we can maximize our time.
Need a formula refill?
I can either mail herbs to you or you can make an appointment to come pick them up. Please let me know what you need more of when you schedule.
Ayurveda uses a wide array of treatments to help overcome health problems, speed recovery, counter pain, and de-stress. Treatments all involve snehan (oil application) and swedan (steam heat). The most simple form of body treatment is Abhyunga, or Indian-style oil massage and steam which calms Vata, reduces stress, supports digestion and helps the body adjust to season changes. Other treatments include dhara (oil, milk, or decoction streaming treatments), nasya (nasal application of remedies), karna purana (eat treatments), sthanik basti (oil pool therapy), and others.
Specialized treatments have specific curative qualities and will be recommended as needed. Basic abhyunga is available for anyone who is interested. Please note that oils, decoctions, formulas, and herbs used will be an additional.
Herbs and Oils and other potions:
Seasonal Sweet Tea Potion : This is a personalized rasayana that is designed to keep you healthy and work sweetly and easily on your deeper imbalances. The process requires a short phone call to talk about what the primary focus of the Potion will be and you will get a season-supply of your very own formula shipped to you!
Most of the formulas that I used are based in the classical ayurvedic texts and ingredients sourced from the most authentic and careful pharmacies in India. Standard rates for individually blended herbal formulas is $50 for a month supply. Oils, ghees and other medicine charges vary.
