What it’s like to work with an Ayurveda Health Coach
As an Ayurvedic Health Coach, my mission, my passion, is to help you reduce stress, heal digestion and optimize your habits so that you can live your life to the fullest. When you’re overwhelmed, exhausted or depressed, it can be difficult to make changes. And with so much health information available to us now, navigating the options can be tough. Or it might be easy to start but hard to stay committed long enough to see truly transformative changes. Having extra support can be the key to overcome these challenges. That’s where I come in! Part educator, part medicine woman, my role as an Ayurvedic Health Coach is to see the big picture of your health and well-being and provide the map and tools to get you where you want to be. First, we define your wellness goals and figure out whats keeping you from getting there. Then, we create a plan tailored to your dosha that gently brings you back into balance.
For new clients, I provide an initial package that includes 2 sessions. Here’s what you can expect:
Visit 1: Initial consultation
My goal is to get to know your health history and understand your current health and wellness challenges. Before the visit, I provide a thorough questionnaire for you to fill out. We discuss your answers during your first visit and I also take your pulse, observe your physical characteristics, observe your tongue and do a basic physical examination.
This information provides me with the data I need to determine your core doshas (prakriti) and your imbalances (vikruti), as well as put together a treatment plan tailored to your unique situation. This initial consultation is very thorough and takes 1.5-2 hours. You will leave with initial recommendations to implement.
Visit 2: Dosha Results and Starter Wellness Plan
This is the meat-and-potatoes visit, which takes place 1-2 weeks after the first appointment. Based on your information from the initial visit, I explain what your doshas are and how they apply to your imbalances. I share foundational information on Ayurveda that is useful to understand your assessment and to apply to your wellness plan. We cover your results from previous recommendations, discuss challenges and add on additional recommendations for you to work on. You will leave with recommendations for things to do and purchase (i.e. herbs, floral essences, essential oils).
BONUS: One Reiki Session or Guided Meditation
I include a reiki session in the initial package as an extra treat to help reduce stress and make you feel good! For long-distance clients, I offer a guided relaxation meditation over the phone. It’s easier to do the work of self-transformation when you feel more relaxed.
See my Work With Me page for pricing.
