Ayurveda Consultations

Assessment and Follow-up Visits

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that means 'the science of life'. It is an ancient Indian practice of medicine that places great emphasis on prevention and encourages maintaining health by paying close attention to 'balance' in our life. According to Ayurveda, each of us has a particular pattern of energy - a combination of physical, mental and physiological characteristics - which is our constitution. Many factors, internal and external, act upon us to disturb this balance and are reflected as a change in our constitution from the balanced state. Once the factors that cause imbalance are understood, we can take appropriate actions to nullify or minimize their effects and/or eliminate their causes. Ayurveda addresses all aspects of our life: body, mind and spirit. It helps minimize stress and balance our flow of energy. It makes our body's natural defense systems strong, helping against contracting disease and aiding recovery after illness.

Ayurveda assessment- this involves discussion about your physical, mental and physiological being. The objective is to determine your constitution and state of balance. A few days later, we will discuss a recommended wellness plan. This will include lifestyle regimens, herbal formulations, cleansing or rejuvenating practices, an exercise and nutrition plan. Together, these meetings can take up to three hours. Total cost: $350.00

Ayurveda follow-up visits- I encourage monthly meetings when pursuing a lifestyle or behavior change. These meetings are about one hour long. Total cost: $110.00
