Complementary Optimal Health Assessment
During this free 20-minute session, I will help you determine and understand your constitution from an Ayurvedic perspective, including tongue & pulse diagnosis.
Following your assessment, you can decide if you would like to return for bodywork, a full consult, or any mixture of the two.
Optimal Health Program
During The Optimal Health Program, you will meet with me once a week for a 6-week or 12-week period. During your Initial Consultation, we will delve deeply into your physiology and personality, explore your daily habits and routines, and create a snapshot of your imbalances as a point of reference for our work together. We'll begin to create a plan of treatment that will nourish you and gently (or not-so-gently, depending on your constitution) encourage your body to shift to a state of balance.
The content of the subsequent sessions will vary depending on your needs: I'll always begin by checking your progress against your ultimate goals, but then the sky is the limit! We might cook together or do an abhyanga, combine a 1/2 hr padabhyanga with a nasya, or have a brisk walking session. We might review some breathing techniques, practice some t'ai chi moves, or talk about the subtle doshas and how they impact your overall health. Most importantly, we'll focus on YOU -- the beautifully unique individual that you are.
This combination of services gives me a chance to get to know you and your specific issues, while giving you a taste of what the Ayurvedic bodywork is like. This is particularly powerful because during the consult, I can understand how to tailor my treatment to your specific needs, choosing oils, aromas, and strokes that will bring about a maximun therapeutic benefit, as well as feel great! If you've been here before, you can still take advantage of the combo by getting a follow-up to deepen our discussion, accompanied by an abhyanga.
A la carte Sessions
Initial Consultation with a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner
Whether you decide to invest in the Optimal Health Program or would prefer to schedule sessions as needed, all paths begin with an Initial Consultation. During this session, I will give you a brief overview of Ayurvedic principles and terminology, review your health history and daily habits/routines, and work with you to develop a treatment plan based on your individual needs.
Once you have completed your Initial Consultation with me, Follow-Up appointments are 30 or 60 minutes long.
You can schedule a Follow-Up session to track your progress or bring any new concerns to my attention.
