Ayurveda is the traditional medical system of India dating back more than 5000 years, one of the worlds oldest medical systems. All consultations are 60-90 minute appointments with a NAMA-certified Ayurvedic Practitioner (CAP), who will discuss your health and wellness concerns with you from an Ayurvedic perspective. The Ayurvedic perspective looks at your personal makeup (called prakruti) together with your current imbalances (called vikruti) and identifies ways that your body could be brought back into a balanced- or greatly improved- state of health and wellbeing. In the consultation, we will review your past health history, current conditions and symptoms, medication history and diet and lifestyle habits to understand your body's patterns. Your practitioner will use a combination of Ayurvedic assessment tools to determine this, such as questioning and interviewing, observation, pulse assessment and examination of the tongue and nails. Findings from the consultation are used to establish a very personalized diet, lifestyle and herbal protocol that puts you in control of your own health and well-being. An Ayurvedic consultation can help you understand your individual constitution and identify how your system manifests imbalances, helping you to become a co-healer in your own life.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of encouraging the body to naturally heal and improve function. It heals by restoring energetic balance in the body. Most patients barely feel the hair-thin, sterile, disposable needles, which are shallowly inserted into precise acupuncture points along meridians stimulating the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. Much like an electrical network, the meridians are interconnected energetic pathways in our body where Qi, or energy, flows. Just as a traffic jam may lead to distressed drivers, a block in our Qi can cause illness and pain. Acupuncture helps to restore the healthy flow of Qi.
