AYURVEDA literally translates to “life-knowledge” and is considered to be the oldest and most complete medical system in the world. Ayurveda views the human being as a microcosm of the universe and employs the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth) and their inherent qualities along with the 3 qualities of consciousness, sattva (the principle of potential energy and clarity), rajas (the principle of kinetic energy) and tamas (the principle of inertia and decay) as a lens through which the unique individual can be understood. Through this simple approach a comprehensive system of health and healing can be applied to all aspects being (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) to promote balance, clarity, strength and flexibility in order to enable the emergence of our true Self.
Via a multi-faceted approach Ayurveda assists the individual to meet this goal through specific bodywork therapies, diet, lifestyle, exercise and yoga, cleansing and purification treatments, sound and color therapy, herbology and rejuvenation therapies.
This system of health works both preventatively and to resolve presenting issues such as digestive disorders, chronic headaches, sleep disorders, attention and focusing difficulties, along with other chronic body aches and pains of all the major systems.
You may expect, during an Ayurvedic consultation with Danielle, to learn about what your specific birth constitution (prakruti), your current state of health (vikruti) and simple lifestyle tools to support and enhance your well being. This may include: dietary guidelines, cleansing and purification techniques, breathing exercises (pranayama), rejuventation therapies, Ayurvedic herbs and a greater understanding of Ayurvedic principles so that you may consciously apply them to your daily life.
