Ayurveda, Wellness Coaching and Treatments
Ayurveda is a unique health science for understanding and managing wellness in the body, mind, and spirit. It is an integral sister science to yoga and Vedic astrology. Ayurveda respects and focuses on the uniqueness of each individual body-mind in addressing health and wellness. By emphasizing prevention, Ayurveda empowers everyone to take responsibility for their own well-being.
Ayurvedic Wellness Coaching
Warm herbal oil or ghee can be applied locally for pain relief to different parts of the body, such as the back, low back, or heart area. A dough barrier is constructed and stuck to the body, and then filled with warm oil that is circulated and reheated for a time. In Netra Basti, the dough barrier is placed around the eyes, and warm ghee is poured into the area. One then opens the eyes and looks around, blinking, allowing the ghee to circulate around the eye. This is an incredible treatment for anyone with vision problems or glasses. It cleans debris from in and around the eyes, and reliefs eye muscle tension and strain.
Marma Point Therapy
Marma chikitsa is the Ayurvedic protocol that treats the vital sensitive points on the body, known as marmani or marma points. In this treatment we apply gentle pressure to the vital points using the fingers as well as tuning forks set at 136 vibrations per second (associated with “Om”). Stimulating these points awakens the inner pathway of spiritual light and energetic healing. Different points can be associated with emotional blocks as well as physical conditions. This energy treatment is deeply nourishing, relaxing, and refreshing.
Pancha Karma, or “the five actions,” is the traditional Ayurvedic cleanse and rejuvenation program. This can be undertaken from days to weeks, and may include all of the therapies above as well as a special diet and regimen of herbs and routines. I will work with you to develop a tailored program based on your individual constitution and conditions, as well as what fits within your life’s constraints. Ideally this program involves a week of preparation at home and at least 5 days away at a retreat setting.
