The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that evolves from the combination of two words, “Ayuh” meaning life and “veda” meaning knowledge. Ayurveda “Science of Life” or “wisdom of life” deals with nature and includes all aspects of life. The practice of Ayurveda focuses on finding each person’s optimal balance, current imbalances and how to restore equilibrium.
What’s Involved in a Session?
A typical initial Ayurvedic assessment is one and half hours. I will ask you detailed questions about your health, diet, and lifestyle. I will examine your tongue; observe the appearance of your skin, lips, nails, and eyes as well as listen to your pulse. We will discuss your immediate and long term goals and needs.
Based on the information collected, together we will create a customized program which may include diet, yoga, herbs, body treatment, sound and energy therapy. My goal is not to overwhelm you with alterations to your lifestyle, so we will make sure the changes suggested are easily adaptable.
You will learn about your metabolic type (dosha) and how to restore balance and create long-lasting health and longevity
