Ayurvedic Practitioner, LMT
My core values are the lens I live my life through, and approach my work through. They are the foundation for all that I am and all that I offer.
These are my core values, in no particular order:
Love & Compassion
Reverence for Nature
As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, I assist clients in returning to their true nature through the principles we apply in Ayurvedic Consultations and Ayurvedic Health Coaching programs.
I have chosen to work in the field of Ayurveda for the purpose of bringing healing and awareness to people’s lives so that they can realize their unique life path and contribute their gifts to the world we live in.
It is my intention to encourage integration of all health care systems and wisdom traditions for the benefit of all.
I am a graduate of The Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico, where I studied under Dr. Vasant Lad , and have traveled extensively throughout India, studying with renowned Ayurvedic doctors and scholars. I am also a graduate of The Brenneke School of Massage in Seattle. I have been practicing Ayurveda since 1999 and massage since 2001.
My other great joy in life is caring for my daughter, Amulya. She continues to teach me about unconditional love, playfulness, patience and being fully present. What a gift!
Working with Sarah
I offer these FAQs to help you orient yourself to our work together. If you are new to Ayurveda and want to learn exactly what I have to share with you, please feel free to set up a Discovery Call call, and we can talk directly.
What can Ayurveda do for me?
Ayurveda provides time-tested tools and remedies to restore your optimal health and balance, based upon your unique body-mind type. When your personal balance is restored, you experience more energy, better digestion, improved sleep, stronger immunity and self-empowerment.
What should I expect from an Ayurvedic Consultation or Health Coaching Call?
Before our appointment, I will ask you to fill out a detailed intake form that you will return to me before your first visit. When we meet, I will take a detailed health history, check your pulse (in-person), examine your tongue, eyes, nails, and skin, and listen to the tone of your voice. I will ask questions about your lifestyle and health habits. I will then recommend ways you may restore your natural constitutional balance and replenish your energy.
What exactly do your recommendations consist of?
This depends on your health situation and your needs but usually I offer lifestyle recommendations including diet/nutrition, herbal therapies, and habits of rest, exercise, and self care.
I may also recommend you to receive massage, shirodhara or potentially to participate in Panchakarma detoxification therapy.
How much does an Ayurvedic Consultation cost? Is it just the one time or should I expect to come in more than once?
Our initial Ayurvedic Consultation takes approximately 1 1/2 hours and costs $295.00. This cost includes your first follow-up consultation as well. Ask me more about my longer term Health Coaching Programs.
I look forward to meeting you soon and supporting you along your journey of great health and freedom!
