The Ayurveda (which in Sanskrit literally means "life-knowledge") comes from an ancient, time tested approach to well being. These traditions from India present opportunities for bringing balance to your life based on simple natural principles rooted in the essence of "moderation in all things" and a way of living which emphasizes natural cleansing. Its view of life also celebrates that beauty and joy are a natural part of the journey of the challenges of healing.

A key concept is "dosha" which is somewhat simply understood as a "constitution" or "type". Though it goes beyond just a sense of body type, temperament and personality characteristics to embrace the whole you, body, mind and spirit. Specific herbs and points are chosen to assist with this.

Ayurvedic care can be approached in a way which is referred to as "Tri-dosha". This is focused on herbs and points, that are advantageous to all types (doshas) in a general way.

Dosha Awareness Test

Another Ayurvedic approach is grounded in a process of exploring yourself by a self-accessing questionnaire know as the "prakruti" which reveals the specific balance of "dosha" that is individual to you.  Specific herbs and points are chosen to address these specific doshas in a unique and strategic way. Arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to take the Dosha Accessment. 

The exploration of "doshas" is offered as a guide to supporting natural growth and healing. It offers no intent of diagnosis or suggesting medical advice.
