How to receive the most benefit from your therapies...
Ayurvedic Body Treatments are therapeutic therefore there are some beneficial practices to do beforehand to receive the best possible outcome. Please take this into consideration before booking in order to feel incredible after your appointment.
To feel the best after your therapies please try some or all of the following suggestions 1-7 days prior to your visit:
Drink ginger tea or CCF tea the day before or many days before and the day of your visit.
Eat warm, cooked vegetarian soups and stews, especially the night before your treatment. You can make extra to have ready for dinner when you get home from your appointment.
Have a good night sleep the night before you treatment. Get to bed closer to 10pm.
Avoid ice, cold or frozen drinks/food.
Reduce or eliminate heavy to digest foods such as fried foods, hard cheeses, refined sugary foods, fast food, caffeinated beverages.
The best time to schedule your appointment:
Give yourself space AFTER your therapies to go home, take a shower/bath and have some nice warm soup. Avoid doing errands or working afterwards so that the effects will have more time to work on the body/mind.
After traveling, moving, a stressful moment in the life, trauma, illness or injury are wonderful times to rebuild Ojas (immunity/strength/vigor) with Ayurvedic Therapies.
General prevention and self-care. It's always a good time to receive body therapies as part of promoting balanced vibrant health. Ayurveda is the King of Preventative Health Care and when practiced over a long period of time one looks radiant and feels happy and peaceful!
Please do not book an appointment or come in when:
You are on the first 3 days of your menstrual cycle. The body is meant to rest during this time of purification.
You have a cold or flu. *
If you have sinus congestion, fever, cough, sore throat or body aches. *
*I have requested this for the past 10 years. This is not because I'm afraid of getting sick it's because the body needs 100% rest when it's in a detoxification stage (releasing excess toxins). In this case it's best to make an online consultation appointment for diet/herbal recommendations for healing quickly with ease and grace.
