Initial Assessment and Consultation (2 appointments)

$150 total

In our first appointment, which lasts about 1.5 hours, I will ask you a lot of questions. We will start with your health concerns and then continue with questions about your lifestyle, diet, habits, and emotional state.  Some questions may be unrelated to your main complaint but will offer insight into your constitution, current imbalances and requirements.  This is important because the same complaint can have many possible causes, and treating the cause can have a better long-term result than simply treating a symptom.  I will measure and feel your pulse and observe your tongue as diagnostic tools.
During our second appointment, which lasts about 1.5 hours, I will share with you an overview of Ayurveda and how you as an individual fit into that paradigm.  My goal is to educate, inspire and empower you to take charge of your health.  I will present ideas for change and we will make a plan together for you.  This will include lifestyle, diet and possibly herbs.
If you are not able to meet in person, we can schedule an appointment by Skype or phone.

Follow-up Visits


Together we will assess the success of your plan from our previous consultation and make changes or additions as necessary.  I highly recommend scheduling at least one follow-up visit.

Private Yoga, Meditation or Pranayama Instruction


Before we meet, I will communicate with you to find out what you hope to get from your practice, how much time you would like to devote to practice and at what time you anticipate practicing in the day.  If you have come to see me for an Ayurvedic consultation, I will already have an understanding of your needs. When we meet, I will have an individualized practice prepared for you in writing, which will be yours to take home.  We will go through the practice at a slow pace with plenty of time for questions and answers.

Warm Herbal Oil Massage (Abyhanga)


A luxurious warm, herbalized oil massage using flowing strokes opens up the detox channels and deeply relaxes the mind and body. 1 hour 15 mins.

Herbalized Steam Treatment (Svedana)


Follow your warm oil massage with an exquisite herbal steam treatment that will leave you feeling clear, rejuvenated and deeply moisturized. Medicinal herbs like Lavender, Chamomile, Bay Leaf, Eucalyptus, and  Rosemary help to clear the channels, relax the muscles and nurture the senses. 30 mins.

Kati Basti 


A traditional restorative treatment to soothe the lumbosacral region, indicated for low back pain, slipped discs, sciatica and arthritis affecting the spine. Your treatment begins with marma chikitsa (gentle pressure point massage). Then, a reservoir made from organic whole wheat flour is placed over the affected area of your spine. Warm medicated oils are poured inside the reservoir, concentrating the healing benefits of the oil where you need it most. The oils penetrate the tissues deeply, bathing the affected vertebrae, nerves and muscles. 45 mins.

Netra Basti 


The eyes are intimately connected to the brain and nervous system. This soothing treatment is ideal for many eye conditions, and for calming and balancing the mind. A reservoir is made from organic whole wheat flour and placed around the eye. Warm ghee (clarified butter) is then gently poured inside, bathing the eye and surrounding tissues. As the ghee penetrates, the entire nervous system receives its therapeutic benefits. One eye is treated at a time, so this treatment must be scheduled on two separate days. 45 minutes per eye.

Profound Relaxation Therapy (Shirodhara)


Shirodhara is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind, promoting a deep sense of peace. Warm, dosha specific oils and herbs are poured slowly over the third eye. Shirodara is highly effective in normalizing sleep cycles and reduces insomnia. 50 mins.

Bliss Therapy (Abhyanga, Svedhana, Shirodhara)


Traditionally, the above three therapies are offered in concert and nicknamed “Bliss Therapy” because they help to quiet the body and mind into natural stillness. 2+ hours. Please leave time
for a warm shower, relaxation and tea.

Marma Therapy Facial


Marmani are power points located on the body that are areas of concentrated life force energy. Proper massage of these points with essential oil application and the light touch of pranic healing combine to balance the flow of energy through the muscles, joints and organs of the body.  Special attention is given to the face and scalp during this treatment. This therapy is especially effective for migraines and headaches. 50 mins.

Guided Home Cleanse 


Guidance through a home Panchakarma (cleanse) includes two 20 minute consultations and one 60 minute consultation. During our first talk we will go over your health history and check in to see when it would be ideal for you to do your cleanse. During our 60 minute meeting I will give you all you need and more to properly and safely do a home cleanse that is tailored just for you. General guidelines include instructions on self massage, how to make kitchari (your diet for the cleanse), and which herbs or oils to take to enhance the process. Gentle yoga postures, pranayama (breathing exercises) and mediation will also be recommended. Your follow up and second 20 minute consult can be done during or just after your cleanse to check in on your progress and support you emotionally and physically.

This nourishing and gentle process will give you education and techniques that will stay with you for a lifetime. Releasing toxins from your body will help inspire you to make the right choices and find clarity. Ayurvedic detoxing increases your immunity, balances digestive issues and gives you a fresh start.  You can choose to incorporate Ayurvedic treatments such as abhyanga, shirodhara, and svedhana to increase the effectiveness, benefit and enjoyment of your home PK experience.  I can suggest when and what treatments would be most beneficial for you. Package pricing is available. More information on the Guided Home Cleanse.
