Ayurveda is an elegant, user-friendly system of medicine. It is a sister science to yoga and evolved in India for thousands of years before making its appearance here in the West. Ayurveda gives us the guidelines necessary to live in harmony with nature’s rhythms, and in doing so, heal our bodies, minds and hearts.
In addition to the advisory aspects of a consultation, interested clients will enjoy expanding their knowledge of Ayurvedic principles. I offer workshops throughout the year, and I’m happy to integrate an educational component to private consultations.
समडोषाः समाग्निश्च समधातुमलक्रियाः ।
प्रसन्नात्मेन्ड्रियमनाः स्वस्थ इत्यभिधीयते ॥
The one who is established in Self, who has balanced doṣa-s, balanced agni, properly formed dhātu-s, proper elimination of mala-s, properly functioning bodily processes, and whose mind, soul, and senses are full of bliss, is called a healthy person. -Susrutra's Definition of Health
