Initial Consultation: 75 minutes, $125
What to expect: Ayurveda is designed to treat the person, not the disease. In such, every consultation is unique to the individual. No two people are identical, as such no two consultations are identical. Generally, the seventy-five minute consultation includes a sit down talk session where the we do a thorough intake including your areas of concerns, current conditions and history analysis. We look at your tongue and face to identify imbalances and area of interest. We'll also take your pulse to verify your constitution. You and your practitioner will go over your current lifestyle patterns, including food, movement, stress, bowels, sleep, moods, energy and menstrual cycles (if that applies). We'll use what you're currently doing as a template to design guidelines that help harmonize your food and lifestyle daily routines and habits. A consultation will help you improve your eating habits, digestion and metabolism, elimination patterns, sleep and moods. A consultation can also help you correct imbalances like weight gain, joint and body pain, constipation, indigestion, irregular or painful periods, instability in energy levels and moods, skin conditions and high blood pressure/cholesterol and fatigue. Ayurveda is not a fad or trend. Your practitioner will encourage you to make small sustainable shifts over an extended period of time. Good health starts in your kitchen, bathroom and community. You will gain tools to use food as medicine and manage your stress with self-care routines. We may suggest you use specific spices, herbs, teas, oils and whole food supplements to boost your health. Ayurveda empowers you through self-knowledge and holistic modalities to truly embrace self-healing. You'll leave with an information packet on how to balance your dosha, as well as handwritten recommendations designed specifically for you.
Skype and FaceTime Consultations are available upon request.

Our bodies are constantly in a state of transition. We are not stagnant creatures, we are always in a state of ebb and flow. It is suggested that you stay on top of your wellness plan with monthly or seasonal follow-ups. We need to adjust our daily food choices, habits and routines to compliment the shifts of the seasons and the shifts of life. You can also schedule a follow-up to address a spontaneous imbalance such as a dip in immunity, new digestive or skin issues, drops in mood or energy, seasonal allergies, a new ache or pain or just a an opportunity to tune in and refine your plan.
Nutrition Response Testing:
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) is a noninvasive, precise and scientific technique we determine the perfect plan for your body and start you on the road to optimal wellness.
The NRT process can be summarized as follows:
First, through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health. The analysis is done through painless and noninvasive testing of the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure points. NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
After determining the nutrients that you need, we make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to supplement your current diet. These supplements are different from vitamins, as they are made of whole foods rather than chemicals artificially produced in a lab.
Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, as well as in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results. It is recommended that NRT clients come in every seven to fourteen days to be retested to ensure you are healing and taking only the supplements your body really needs.
NRT 30 minutes, $35
What to expect: Bring supplements and medications you're currently taking. After filling out your intake form we will use reflex testing to identify areas of weakness or imbalance. We use vials to identify the root cause for your imbalance. The root cause will be one of the following: immune challenges, food allergies, chemicals, metals or scars. Using NRT we will create a treatment plan using homeopathic medicine to detoxify and whole food supplements to nourish weak organs and systems. These supplements are organic and completely safe. You will follow your customized protocol for 10-21 days and then return to be tested again. We will continue to support your healing by monitoring your whole body system and peeling back the layers of imbalance to reveal your most energized and balanced self. Plan on coming regularly for your first few months.
Ayurvedic Warm Oil-Essential Oil Marma Treatment:
Unplug. Relax. Feel pampered. Similar to Acupuncture in Chinese Medicine we follow the Nadi’s and Srotamasi (or channels of energy) to balance and remedy imbalances in various organs and functions of the body. In this non-invasive treatment we use pressure from the fingers to access, unblock and draw emphasis to specific channels in the body. This treatment is effective even fully clothed, working on the shoulders, head, neck and face for reducing stress, repressed emotions, hyperactive mind, ADD, ADHD, migraines, congestion and insomnia to name a few. We usually couple this treatment with dosha pacifying oils and soothing tea. The treatment is incredible relaxing.
Marma 60 minutes, $75
What to expect: Expect to taste tranquility. Wear cotton shorts and a loose shirt, tank or sports bra. Remove make-up prior to treatment. You'll lie on a nest of blankets and soft cushions. You'll be lathered in herbal and essential oils to balance your doshas. Most people drift off into a lucid state between sleep and awake. After one hour you will rise up, sip tea and float into your day. Note: You will have oil on your scalp and feet. It's not messy, but bring a beach towel to keep your car nice and clean. To wash oil out of your hair: without water, apply shampoo to your hair, then rinse and wash as usual. The oil will calm your mind and nourish your hair. It is recommended that you schedule your treatment of a light day. You need to avoid excess stimulation such as heavy work loads, loud noise and gadgets immediately following your session. This treatment is ideal for reducing stress, anxiety, ADD, emotional imbalances, energetic imbalances, insomnia and aches and pains.
