Ayurveda is a health care system that pays attention to the cycles of nature. Ayurveda being a natural science understands our deep and intrinsic link with nature. The 5 elements: Space, air, fire, water and earth make up everything around us. When we fall out of balance, we recognize this as a symptom and it is due to one or more of these elements being too weak or strong. As an Ayurvedic Practitioner I will help to keep you in tune with natures rhythms and cycles. It is when we lose touch with those cycles that we become out of balance. We will work together to reestablish connectedness, care, and proper flow of energy. You’re worth it.
Women have unique needs. We are highly complex individuals. Sometimes so complex it’s difficult to keep track of everything. Early detection of disease is great. But let’s aim higher and work at the level of prevention. Even if you have already been diagnosed with a disease, it doesn’t mean you can’t try to prevent the worsening of it or other diseases. Always keep that in mind. In terms of staying in balance our hormones control everything. If they are out of balance, everything else will follow. Depending on your nature it may take a long time or a relatively short amount of time to notice something is not quite right. Your lab tests may show that everything is fine or at the proper levels. You many know otherwise, because you feel something is not quite right. This is why it is great to have options! You can take more of an active role in your health. Not all options are created equal. As women we need to be aware of and protective of our bodies when we are given unhealthy and unnatural options. In this day and age with so many options it can be difficult to know where to begin. I offer natural and effective therapies to assist in:
- Getting rid of excess weight/ weight management (especially in the mid-section and thighs)
- Menstruation imbalances ( heavy periods, irregularity, fibroids, PMS, lack of periods)
- Reducing and minimizing cellulite
- Managing stress, stress related illness and fatigue
- Improving the skin
- Improving desire and lack of interest
- Mental and emotional fatigue and anxiety
Some of the more popular therapies include:
- Shirodhara (warm pouring of oil on the head)
- Body Wrap/Body Scrub (Udvartana/Uthsadanam)
- Pancha Karma (3,5,7,10 day full detox treatment)
An in depth consultation is needed for certain imbalances such as: stress management, imbalances related to menstruation and hormones, disease diagnosis from a Medical Doctor (i.e. hypertension, diabetes, IBS, back pain, etc.), panchakarma and for customized herbal formulas.
If you have an imbalance which makes touch uncomfortable, have severe fatigue or other symptoms, Light Work and/or Reiki are other options. They are also suitable options if you are recovering from a major illness or are contacting me from out of my area. They can also be used in conjunction with Ayurveda.
