Life is a Journey and Ayurveda hands us a Roadmap for our Personal Path to Wellness.
Ayurveda is an ancient healing science developed over 5000 years ago in India alongside Yoga. It teaches us how to prevent illness and how to live long, healthy, active lives by navigating our Personal Path to Wellness.

But should we become ill, Ayurveda’s goal is to discover and treat the cause of the illness, not just its symptoms, thereby preventing it from reoccurring. This is possible as Ayurveda recognizes that each person is a unique individual having a specific roadmap which plots our Personal Path to Wellness. When we learn about Ayurveda, we learn how to manage our own health according to our roadmap. We adopt daily practices to ensure our wellbeing and how to recognize – and reverse – factors, such as stress, that will cause our health to be detoured from that Path to Wellness.
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word translating as "Science of Life". It teaches how to maintain a healthy, happy, active life through our diet, lifestyle practices, herbal preparations, meditation, bodywork and exercise.

Ayurveda teaches us that living in harmony with our environment - with nature - is imperative for keeping us on our Path to Wellness. We achieve harmony by adapting to changes in weather; eating foods that are in season; avoiding incompatible food combinations; and by obtaining proper exercise and rest. The reduction of Stress through practices such as yoga, breath work, aromatherapy and meditation as well as Massage and Bodywork are an important part of our Path.
"Olivia is an Ayurvedic practitioner, so if you’d like to incorporate nutrition into your massage experience, for a truly holistic approach to your health, she’s able to do this. After seeing her for awhile for massage only, I met with her for an Ayurvedic consultation, and found that it really helped the health issue we discussed (i.e., seasonal allergies)." Kimberly
Doshas
Ayurveda teaches that there are 5 elements in the world. These are ether (space), air, fire, water and earth. These elements come together to form the Doshas, the energies that reside in our bodies making us function as human beings. Ether and Air come together to form the Dosha called Vata. Fire and Water form Pitta Dosha. Water and Earth form Kapha Dosha. Each Dosha is responsible for specific functionality in our bodies and minds and we need all three to be complete.
Our Wellness Roadmap is determined by the way the Doshas come together in us. We all have Vata, Pitta and Kapha Doshas in our body and mind, just in different ratios. One or two Doshas are usually more predominant. This is what sets us apart from other people, determining our personal physical characteristics, emotional disposition and mental capacity. To stay healthy, we must maintain this Doshic ratio as it represents our true self.

Unfortunately, our environment, experiences, diet and lifestyle can cause our Doshas to go “out-of balance” so that we veer off of our Path to Wellness. We become ill. However, it is possible to determine how the imbalance occurred and even to predict what illness is most likely to occur based on the Doshas.
Therefore, we are able to create Personalized Wellness Roadmaps to address and to prevent future illness. During your personal Ayurvedic Consultation, we will discover your Dosha and then create your Wellness Roadmap after further discussion about your diet, lifestyle and concerns.

According to Ayurveda, there is no illness without a disturbance in the Doshas.
