Your first Ayurvedic Consultation is a 30-45 minute appointment involving a pulse reading, an assessment of your Ayurvedic constitution and your state of digestion.
The goal of your visit will determine the outcome, but we will definitely be asking you about the foods you are eating, your daily routine, and your history, both physical and emotional.
Every piece of your life fits together to contribute to your overall health and we need to see where you are coming from before we can help you get to where you want to go.
A question we get a lot is, “Do you treat ….?” The answer is always YES!
Whatever your complaint, complication or confusion with life may be, Ayurveda can help you pinpoint the cause which will define the solution.
Ayurveda treats YOU, not your illness. Your illness isn’t you, it is something your body has created in an attempt to correct an imbalance. The real question is, what are you giving your body to work with? Where is the breakdown happening?
The thing that makes Ayurveda such an effective solution to evasive or chronic problems is that your unique life is the blueprint; it is where the problem began and over time, where it will end. Your joy with your life is such a large part of your health; we won’t tell you to stop eating all of the foods you enjoy, but we may ask you to approach them in a different way. We won’t tell you to stop running if you love to run, but we may ask you to try running at a different time of day.
When you leave your Initial Consultation you will have a list of “Healthy Tips.” These tips may include modifications to your daily routine, some guidance on how to better your relationship with your food and any recommended treatments: exercises to do, herbs to take or maybe a session of detoxifying and balancing body work.
Follow Up appointments are shorter than the Initial Consultation, about 20-30 minutes.
We will generally give you a time frame of when to check back in with us to see how you are doing with your Ayurvedic recommendations. If you have been asked to do a specific regimen of body work/cleansing we would like to see you again around two weeks after completion.
If you have been given herbs to take for a specific amount of time, come back and see us when they run out. We are ultimately trying to teach your body how to take care of itself, but herbs are a helpful crutch until your body catches up.
If you are in a place where you are maintaining balance we recommend you make an appointment for a follow up every few months or any time you feel you are struggling with motivation or if you feel the season is getting the best of you (allergies or bugs going around).
