In this comprehensive first step we will explore your health concerns and goals through

 

  • Pulse assessment of your Ayurvedic constitution ( Vata, Pitta, Kapha)

  • Organ & Vital Essence Pulses

  • Tongue, Nail, & Hand Analysis

  • Discussion and time for answering any questions you have about Ayurveda and its methods.

You will receive a foundational lifestyle design plan that we co-create together and can be implemented right away to encourage balance & healing in your day-to-day. This plan will  be based on Ayurvedic wisdom and customized to your unique constitution and circumstances. This plan may include:

  • Lifestyle recommendations (daily habits & routines) 

  • Dietary guidelines, recipes and recommendations

  • Exercise/movement 

  • Breathwork (pranayama)

  • Mindfulness practices

  • Teas and/or nutritional supplementation 

Ayurveda Starter Sessions also include a short, balancing Marma Therapy (see below) treatment to facilitate healing and bodymind balance. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ayurveda Lifestyle Session | 60 min | $80

with Janae Christopher, Ayurveda Specialist, Wellness Educator, & Marma Therapist 

Ayurveda Lifestyle Sessions are follow up appointments that build on the foundation we created in your Starter Session.

We continue adapting your personalized protocol plan as your body heals and comes back into balance while taking the guesswork out of creating a maintainable and sustainable wellness plan.

  • Revisit the pulse to see how your body is responding to your plan

  • Make adjustments where necessary with your bodymind as the guide

  • Layer new or deeper practices into your plan for more enhanced benefits

  • Answer questions about diet, lifestyle, movement etc. based on your constitution

  • Receive coaching and encouragement on cyclical living and making lifestyle adjustments through dinacharya (daily rituals) and ritucharya (seasonal rituals)

The number of the follow up Lifestyle sessions will vary depending on your healing/health journey. Some clients only need a few to get started and then do seasonal check-ins, some require more before tapering off to seasonal check-ins. This is best determined moment by moment as we work together.

Marma Therapy & Energy Healing may be employed if there is time but not guaranteed in these sessions. 

Marma Therapy

Marma Therapy is an acupressure modality that is experiencing a revival in the Ayurvedic world thanks to its ability to assist in balancing the body, calming the mind, and facilitating overall healing. Many folks come to Marma therapy for easing pain (headaches, migraines, past injuries, menstrual), lymph movement, energy support, emotional imbalances (such as depression, anxiety), immune & hormone system support, nervous system support and digestive issues.
