Ayurvedic Consultations - $54-63/hr
Initial Consultation: 1.5 - 2 hrs
We come together and take a complete survey of your health, history, and a comprehensive questionnaire is completed to assess your unique metabolic body-type (dosha or "Prakruti") and any imbalances at this time (Vikruti). Our Ayurvedic tradition utilizes a 48 point, 7 level pulse diagnosis, analyzing Dosha location and action, organ and tissue health, and the balance of body and emotions. An individualized Health Plan is written up for you including dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
You will also be given a short presentation on the basic workings and principles of this ancient, 5-10,000 year old science of Ayurvedic Medicine.
After the first month of the program, you may choose to receive custom herbal formulas
and /or essential oil products to meet your wellness needs.
Follow-Up Visits (45 min- 1 hr)
An assessment is made of how the previous week's therapies have balanced your Vikruti (imbalances), and brought you back closer in harmony to your Prakruti. Therapies are fine - tuned, continued, and you are educated on how to best balance your diet and lifestyle per your dosha or body type. The next level of health needs may be addressed. One's Life Purpose or dharma issues are also discussed.
Along with diet and lifestyle, Ayurveda treatments may also include herbs, body/marma point therapies, yoga, meditation, mantra/sound healing, essential oils (aromatherapy), and color therapy aimed at restoring or maintaining balance.
