My approach to healing through Ayurveda and Massage is by channeling my energy into understanding the uniquely divine needs of each client. I believe that each of us can optimize our health and wellbeing by becoming enlightened to our inner intelligence. My mission is to be your guide towards understanding how choices regarding food, lifestyle, and interactions with the environment impact your wellness. How did I come to Ayurveda? I was introduced to Ayurveda over a decade ago in a yoga class. A year later, my health started to be compromised and after seeing loved ones be affected by the negative affects of treatment plans focused on medications and symptom based health management, I wanted to try a more natural approach. Recalling the conversation in that early yoga class, I decided to try Ayurveda. My first consultation resulted in dramatic lifestyle and diet changes, which also resulted in dramatic, positive results within the first 30 days. After years of self study and incorporating an Ayurvedic lifestyle, I decided to become formally educated as a Certified Ayurveda Practitioner and PanchaKarma technician. With a passion to enlighten others with the knowledge and benefits of Ayurveda, I formed Bodhi Ayurveda in 2011. My studies have lead me to become a Certified Ayurveda Practitioner, Licensed Massage Therapist and PanchaKarma technician. I am blessed with opportunity to study with * Patricia Layton at Bhavana Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda (LaGrange IL) * Diva Ayurveda (Milwaukee, WI) * Milwaukee School of Massage (Milwaukee, WI) * Kerala Ayurveda Acadamy (Fremont, CA) * Dr. Vasant Lad of the Ayurvedic Institute (Albuquerque, NM) * Vaidya Mishra of Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda (Los Angeles, CA) * Ajara Ayurvedic Life (Cedar Grove, WI) Currently, I am advancing my studies by becoming a Functional Medicine Wellness Coach through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, associated with the Institute of Functional of Medicine.
