Ayurveda is a simple and practical holistic science, dating back 5000 years that observes every detail of an individual - diet, lifestyle, living conditions and routines - to find the root cause of an imbalance. A natural system of medicine, its’ gentle approach uses the inherent principles of nature to help bring balance to body, mind and spirit.
Working with me, I will create a specific plan for your unique needs, encompassing food, daily routines, exercise and yoga, herbs, therapeutic body treatments and even spiritual practices like meditation and pranayama to restore and maintain balance in body and mind so you and your health can thrive with joy.
