Āyus - Life / Veda - Knowledge
Āyurveda is a 5000 year old system of healing that has roots in ancient India. The Sanskrit term is often translated as "the science of life" and "the art of longevity."
The Āyurvedic approach to health and healing takes the totality of one's being into account: the environment in which they live, the food consumed, their sense of purpose, their habits and lifestyle, their physical and emotional state, and more. Holistic therapies, like herbs and adjustments to diet and lifestyle, are used to guide the body towards a healthy state of balance.
Living out of alignment with spiritual, environmental, and planetary influences impacts our physical and spiritual health, because everything is connected; we are the microcosm of the macrocosm. Āyurveda provides us with tools to bring these factors back into a state of balance.
You are the authority on your body
Coaching is collaborative. You matter.
The goal of my practice is to empower clients to take part in their own healing. Everyone's path is unique, and so is every treatment plan.
In a counseling session we discuss your past and current state of health, your personal goals, your environment, your life, in order to assess your current state of balance according to the principals of Āyurveda.
Treatment typically involves making consistent adjustments that are in line with the rhythms of nature to guide the body, mind, and spirit toward a state of balance.
Sometimes dietary adjustments and Āyurvedic therapies like herbs, massage, and pressure point therapies, as well as other lifestyle adjustments are recommended to support your alignment.
Healing with Āyurveda takes time.
We are often working on mental, emotional, spiritual, or physical issues that have taken root over years (for some, even decades).
Undoing knots with deep roots may take time and commitment.
What works for you matters.
What does not work for you also matters.
I have experience working with thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue, back/joint problems, depression/anxiety/grief, obesity, arthritis, allergies, Fibromyalgia, Crohn's Disease, and IBS (to name just a few).
I am currently accepting clients who commit to six-month treatment plans. If you are curious to find out if you are a good fit, please reach out to me!
