We offer Ayurvedic consultations, both in our office and long distance via the phone or skype.

Initial Ayurvedic Health Consultations

  • Initial consultations are 75-90 minutes long, and are $170.
  • During this initial consultation, we go over your detailed health history.
  • One of our goals is to trace sources of illness to their root cause.
  • Often, deep seated trauma and emotional blockages can be seen clearly, and begin to be integrated and released in a trauma informed environment.

Additionally, each consultation involves a thorough assessment of your diet, lifestyle, pulse, tongue, face and nails  to determine your original constitution (Prakruti) and current state of doshic balance (Vikruti).

Together we will craft your personal wellness program, based upon your goals. Recommendations are personalized for your constitution and current state.

Recommendations Include-

  • Nutrition, dietary guidelines and optimization
  • Lifestyle recommendations and optimization
  • Herbal medicine in a compliable and effective form
  • Recommendations for Ayurvedic Therapies, including Pancha Karma, and other types of Cleanse and Renewal.
  • General recommendations for yoga asanas and breathing practices.  (A more personalized yoga plan can be crafted in a follow up yoga therapy consult).
  • Massage and other specific evidence based modalities  as indicated by your specific condition

At the completion of your consult, you will be given educational handouts, to take home and read at your leisure to enhance your understanding of your Ayurvedic constitution and integrate these changes into your life.

Herbal Formula

We often recommend or customize formulas after this initial consultation for 2 weeks to 2 months.

  • In order to create formulas with optimal herbal synergy, that are also safe to use in your current medical condition, we take careful consideration of your current medications and herbal / dietary supplements.
  • We specialize in using local plants from this rich bioregion when ever possible to supplement the rich Ayurvedic pharmacopeia.
  • We share a commitment towards planetary and personal health, and only use certified organic, sustainable, and heavy metal tested products.
  • Formulas are custom made in our clinic and can be mailed or picked up in our outside herbal box

Follow Up Consultations 

We recommend you schedule an hour follow up consultation 2 weeks to 2 months after your initial consultation so we can access and support positive health changes and optimize your health plan.
  • Follow up consultations are 30 min – 1 hour long and are $50-$95
  • The total number of follow up consultations needed may vary, but usually at least 3 sessions are needed to implement changes, access and monitor results.

Frequently Asked Questions about Consultations

How much do the herbs and other recommendations cost?  

The herbal formulas we create or recommend for you is usually around $60-$100 per month.  Additional herbs or classic formulas we may recommend like triphala are usually between $20 – $40 for a two month supply.  Often herbal capsules we may recommend run around $25/ bottle, plus shipping.  Other dietary changes, just involve a trip to your local grocery store, or natural health food store, and will be cost effective.

Where do I get the formulas?

Formulas are made in our herbal apothocary, If addition products are needed that they do not carry, we will  direct you to the most cost effective and high quality companies to place your order via Internet or phone.

How do I make these changes?

At the end of the consultation, we will make a wellness plan together, with gradual changes, step by step, that feel doable with your current lifestyle, time and energy levels.  We are available to answer general questions via email or short phone calls.  Further changes we will make together in follow up consults, where we can enjoy the steps you have taken, and the transformation you feel, as well as determine what steps to take next, and areas of support needed to make these changes.

 How effective are long distance consultations?

Consultations are most ideal in person where we can access things face to face, and take your pulses.  In a long distance consultation we may ask, if video is not available, that you email us recent photos and a photo of your tongue, if possible.  With this visual aid and detailed questioning, we can still determine effectively your constitution and current state and create a health plan that will help you achieve results with success.
