HEALTH COUNSELING

WHAT'S

AYURVEDA?

Ayurveda is the sister-science of yoga. It uses a spectrum of modalities to restore health through the five senses:

  • Taste, nutrition, and herbs

  • Smell, aromatherapy, and essential oils

  • Sight, color, and crystals

  • Sound, mantra, and song

  • Touch, self-massage, and marma

  • Meditation & Breathtwork

  • Sleep & Relaxation

  • Yoga

Ayurveda believes that every body is its own unique microcosm, which is further affected by the seasons, stress, and lifestyle.

Therefore, it's suggested that individuals consult with a practitioner to consider all these factors when determining their constitution, current state of balance, and lifestyle recommendations.

AYURVEDA + INTUITIVE EATING

For awhile, Ayurveda and I needed to take a break. As I began learning more about the dangers of diet culture, it became clear that Ayurvedic dietary guidelines could be misused as justification for restrictive eating. Therefore, I practice Ayurveda with an equal emphasis on smell, sound, sight, touch, breathwork, yoga, meditation, and taste. I am happy to discuss this further or answer any questions; please use the form below to contact me.
