During your Wellness Counseling Appointment you will receive an Ayurvedic Assessment.
Your unique body constitution is determined as well as any imbalances. Then, recommendations will be given in diet, including specific foods and spices, lifestyle modifications, herbal supplements, yoga postures, breathing practices, meditation techniques, marma chiktsa (Ayurvedic Acupressure), energy healing, etc. Detoxification and purification protocols may be recommended, as well as Ayurvedic Body Treatments. All of these are designed to bring balance, health and vibrant well-being back into your life.
When we enter into an Ayurvedic relationship for your wellness, balance, and cultivation of greater health and well-being, I make a commitment to that relationship. It is as if I take your hand into mine and we are then walking down the road of your health and wellness together. Follow Up visits are an opportunity to see how your body and doshas are balancing from the adoption of the diet and lifestyle changes suggested during your initial wellness counseling visit. This is an opportunity to make any necessary changes, additions, or deletions to your program. Life is in constant dynamic change, so what may have worked for you in the past may not be appropriate for you in this new moment.
Ayurveda offers one of the world’s most comprehensive cleansing protocols. Traditionally this ancient practice used five primary therapies to release and eliminate accumulated toxins called ama from deep within the tissues, and to cleanse and purify the mind of toxic thoughts and unresolved mental emotional issues. This aspect is likely the most important aspect of the cleanse as these toxic thoughts and emotions are often the driving force leading to unhealthy diet and lifestyle choices. The Ayurvedic Cleanse assists the return the doshas to their proper seats in the body thus establishing balance and health.
The Detox involves a simplified whole foods plant based diet, herbs & ghee, daily cleansing rituals, yoga, pranayama, and meditation.
Ayurveda suggests completing a detox twice yearly. Traditionally these are done in both the Spring and Autumn Season. However these cleanses can be done at other times of the year. It is suggested to complete detoxification at least twice per year; usually during the major seasonal transitions from Winter to Spring and then again from Summer to Autumn.

Ayurvedic Body Therapies coupled with modern therapeutic massage techniques provide a blend of potent tools for transforming illness and or injury to wellness and vitality.
The traditional therapies of Ayurveda begin with a detailed consultation to determine an individual's constitution (Prakruti) and any imbalances (Vikriti) present. Many of the therapies use warm herbal infused oils and powders that are massaged into the skin that facilitate transformation and support the body's natural healing abilities. During the consultation we will determine together, which of the many modalities will best meet the issues at hand. As well, specific herbs and oils will be chosen for each individual according to their needs.
The specific treatment modalities of therapeutic massage such as trigger point therapy, Myofascial Release, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Muscle Energy Technics and more, provide physical, physiological and psychological healing.
