Ayurveda:

A healing modality that has been practiced for over 5,000 years.

Ayu in Sanskrit means life and Veda embodying knowledge or science. These ancient teachings have been practiced for centuries. Ayurveda has its healing modalities rooted in cultures such as Greek, Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, Medicine Men and Women from all over and so many more. Ayurveda helps one to understand the changing of cycles in one’s mental, physical, emotional and spiritual body, understanding how one affects the other. When one can truly tune into their senses, listen to the signals that the body is presenting, and connect with the environment surrounding you, every cell in our being begins to shift and change into a healthier state of well being.

When we can learn to ride the coaster through the tools we gain from the teachings of Ayurveda, life can be beautiful.

Ayurveda teaches us how to connect with our senses, not just our five core senses; our sense of peace, clarity and inner voice. Learning how to listen to the internal voice that is always looking out for your best interest. Sometimes this voice can be shut down, stuck or hidden from a trauma, behavior pattern or lack of interest in oneself. Through Ayurveda, we gain the tools to cope with anxious and stressful emotions that would otherwise lead us into a state of roller coaster emotions.

The anxiousness and stressful emotions everyone experiences can be felt healthy and appropriately through the tools of Ayurveda.

These anxious and stressful emotions can be great learning challenges for one who understands these signals in the body. An example would be a cumbersome schedule, where you want to go grocery shopping, clean your house, and make a smoothie all before you attend a yoga class in an hour. Your over working your nervous system, throwing it into a fight or flight state and going to a yoga class should be quite the opposite! When one can use Ayurvedic teachings in their daily routine and lifestyle, our feelings can be recognized and managed in a healthy mental and emotional way.

Ayurveda has helped and changed so many lives.

Ayurveda is continuously evolving and now is the time to awaken the skills we all have in all of us through these teachings. I’ll leave you with a little practice of gratitude in the morning before your feet touch the floor. As you begin to wake, stretch and smile. Whisper to yourself with your hand on your heart “thank you, I love you,” or whatever prayer fits your heart. This one little change in one’s life can leave a huge impact on the cells of your body. Namaste.

Ayurvedic Counseling

Ayurveda in Sanskrit is “Life knowledge/wisdom.” Ayurveda has been a healing practice for over 5,000 years. It is one of the first health care systems known to man. Ayurveda helps us to understand the qualities of the seasons, time of life and time of day we are living in. Throughout these cycles the body also fluctuates and knowing these cycles can help bring harmony and balance back into ones life.

During a session, we will find your Prakruti (birth constitution), Vikruti (the imbalance your body may be experiencing at this moment in time), teaching you how to understand the signs and symptoms the body releases everyday and how to work with these signs and symptoms for everyday health and wellness.

Sound Treatments

Do you notice the subtle sounds birds make when chirping or singing? The crickets in the evening when the sun makes its way to the other side of the earth? Feeling like you want to jump up and dance when your favorite tune comes on? As vibrational beings we naturally react to the stimulation within and around our environment. Sound healing instruments can be identified as crystal singing bowls, native american drums, animals in nature, crashes of the ocean and the tones we make with our vocal cords.

Within a sound healing session, we create a personalized healing space to help release restriction and tension within the body and cleanse the aura (energy)field. The session will beginning with setting an intention, breathing techniques to connect with the body, pendulum testing the chakras, and ending with 50 minutes completely immersed in sound. Once the session is complete you will feel deeply relaxed and should have a great nights sleep.

Massage Therapy

The benefits of massage therapy increase significantly when on a monthly regiment. Consistent treatments help to move lymph, plasma and blood around the body which increases immunity, decreases inflammation and may help with insomnia-like patterns. Massage is known to help relax one's mind, improves flexibility, and reduces stress. We all live in a world that is very fast paced and massage reminds us to take a step back, slow down and enjoy the moment.
