Clinical Ayurveda Consultations
Interested in what āyurveda can do for you? An āyurvedic consultation uses pulse reading, questionnaire, visual observation and verbal interview to assess an individuals prakṛti (original constitution) vs. vikṛti (current state of being). Based on the results, methods using herbs, oils, diet, yoga, meditation, mantra, breath work and bodywork treatments are recommended to bring an individuals doshic nature back into balance, resulting in harmony, happiness and health. An individual plan is created for each client to address current life stressors and areas of concern. Āyurvedic clinical consultations consist of 3 parts.
Trividhā Parīkshā: The Three Categories of Clinical Examination:
Darshanam (Observation) - to assess overall general doshic qualities, additional focus on the patients face, eyes, tongue, nails and speech
Sparshanam (Palpation, Touch) - includes readings of the pulse and additional palpation as needed
Prashnanam (Questionnaire) - includes a full health history intake
