I seek to bring the wisdom of this ancient Eastern healing system to those with a Western lifestyle in an easy and understandable way.
My approach to wellness is to help you with your unique health needs and concerns by striving to treat the underlying cause of your concerns, not just your symptoms. I use both Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine principles, while understanding Western medicine diagnoses, in all of my client work. This process is always interactive.
I will teach you how to better understand your body through Ayurveda, and provide you with the tools necessary to assist and participate in your own healing process.
Initial Consultation: The first meeting is to explain the concepts of Ayurveda and together to discover your Dosha or constitution, which will form the basis for all the work we do. Our goal is to:
Second Visit: We will review the lifestyle or treatment plan. This will include diet/nutrition, breathing techniques, herbs/spices or teas, and other daily/weekly routines (self-massage, meditation or quiet time, self-care).
Subsequent Visits: We will continue the work as needed on your diet/nutrition and begin to address specific health concerns. This process is like peeling an onion, as you regain your optimal health and balance we will be peeling away the layers of lifestyle choices that have brought you less than perfect health and wellbeing. I can help you replace old negative choices with positive and healthy choices, which will become second nature.
