Rasayana Ayurvedic Consultations
Diet & lifestyle tools for health and well-being
The goal of an Ayurvedic consultation is to help you find effective ways to restore balance and reestablish calm, while harmonizing with the rhythms of nature. Support your overall health using tools from the Ayurvedic system, including diet, lifestyle, and bodywork recommendations, the use of medicinal herbs, and a daily self-care regime for your personal constitution (dosha). The Ayurvedic consultations at Rasayana are comprised of a combination of (4) components:
A - Assessment - An in-depth, one-on-one lifestyle and diet assessment with a certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor. Past and present health patterns and concerns will be identified via a detailed (and lengthy) health history and components of a brief physical examination, including the pulse, tongue, eyes, and nails. Doshic imbalances will be identified and a custom-tailored "Adaptation Plan" will be designed for you to follow over the next several months.
P - Plan - A custom-tailored plan designed by a certified Ayurvedic consultant making clear suggestions about specific Ayurvedic practices to adopt, including daily self-care routines, food choices, yoga and pranayama techniques, meditation and movement practices, bodywork, massage, and/or medicinal herbs. This plan enables you to work within your current lifestyle, while simultaneously adapting it.
S - Support - Ongoing, intermittent guidance offering crucial support during the execution of your Adaptation Plan, all while holding you ultimately responsible for the changes you seek. Available via email, Skype, or telephone.
F - Follow Up - A single, 45-minute session for existing or former clients, to address follow up questions, needs, and maintenance work regarding their Adaptation Plan. Available as an office visit, via Skype, or telephone.
As insurance companies catch up on recognizing holistic approaches to health, Rasayana recognizes the out-of-pocket expenses associated with these services and is proud to offer discounted bundle packages and a "pay-as-you-go" feature for its (3) three and (6) six month Lifestyle Consulting Plans - making the average daily cost under $4. That's cheaper than my chai latte at Deisel Cafe! So the next step is up to you. Review the bundle offers and their benefits, take a look around the website, watch a few videos on Rasayana's YouTube channel. And please, contact me with any questions. -Kris
