Welcome to Rasayana [Rah-sah-yana] - my holistic and natural pain relief practice specializing in Ayurveda [ah-yer-vey-duh, -vee-], the traditional medical system from India that coevolved with yoga. I'm passionate about helping people feel better, move better, and function better, so they can experience ease and vitality with the people and projects that matter most. With over 20 years of clinical experience in competitive sports & orthopedics, muscular therapy, Astanga yoga, and traditional Ayurvedic detox & regenerative bodywork treatments, I'm serious about changing the narrative for your aging process.
Whenever possible, I use organic herbs that are sustainably grown and fairly traded. Treatments are safe, effective, and healing for both your body and the planet.
Let's eliminate chronic stress, pain, and inflammation
as the narrative for your aging process. Experience radiant longevity.
"I am so grateful for Kris. I've had abhyanga and shirodhara in England, India, Austria etc. I can't quite describe it, but in both sessions I felt that she had a real intuition, a great sense of compassion and respect for my body. I have post traumatic stress disorder and after two sessions I haven't needed my Atavan, experienced a single flashback, and my nightmares have reduced greatly. Kris and her treatments really give me hope, that combined with my current therapy, I can be free of PTSD and body dismorphia. I didn't think it would be such a large piece of my healing."
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda [ah-yer-vey-duh, -vee-] is emerging as an important preventative and lifestyle medicine in the field of integrative health care. This traditional system of India shares the same language, philosophy, depth and antiquity as Yoga, going back over 5,000 years.
Ayurveda examines the relationships between the Universe's five elements (Ether [space], Air, Fire, Earth, and Water) and their inherent energies that govern our physiology and well-being. Treatment approaches include lifestyle modifications surrounding diet choices, exercise, yoga and meditation, breathing exercises (pranayama), the intake of herbs, and receiving specific bodywork treatments to detoxify, restore and rejuvenate the mind-body.
