You are invited to participate in an Autumn Cleanse and Detoxification this November. In terms of Ayurvedic Medicine, it's recommended to cleanse the body at the junction point between the ending of one season and the beginning of a new one. In particular, the transition from Summer to Autumn is very important for maintaining the health of the body. Just as one changes the oil in the car every several thousand miles to maintain smooth functioning of the car, the body also needs to cleanse every few months in order to maintain smoothness in the mind and body.
In the summer, heat (pitta) accumulates in the body and in the autumn this heat can become aggravated resulting in skin conditions, irritability, poor digestion, constipation, insomnia, low immunity, and fatigue. In addition, vata is aggravated in the Autumn time creating restlessness, fatigue, and dryness throughout the body. This dryness aggravates prana vata, functioning of the mind and contributes to ama or toxins in the body.
I am offering an Ayurvedic Cleanse based on Vaidya Mishra's protocols. This will include a personal consultation in person or via the phone or skype, SVA Ghee, SVA Prakriti Tablets, SVA Detox Tea, diet and recipe recommendations, lifestyle recommendations, email correspondence during the cleanse. You may choose to do the cleanse for 7, 14, or 21 days. Recipes may involve foods that detox the body such as bitter melon, louki, drum stick, and other foods. This is a home cleanse and the cost for the cleanse which includes the above products, consultations, recipes costs $225.00. This does not cover the cost of any other products or treatments that I recommend such as massage oil for home massage, nose oil or herbal memory nectars. If you prepay by November 1st the cost is discounted at $200, a savings of $25.00.
Ayurvedic Detox Body Treatments: I also have available a few treatment sessions open between November 1 -29th. I will be starting to work full time at my practicum site on November 30th and so there is a small window with few appointments for body treatments days.
Some of the treatments included are daily Ayurvedic Massage with SVA Transdermal Marma, Shirodhara, and one other treatment will be decided such as an herbal oil dam (basti), sinus treatment (nasya), or herbal steam bath. The cost of each day of detoxification which includes 3 treatments and a light lunch is $450. You may choose to do one to five days of treatment. If you choose to do five days. it's possible that I can do the treatments in your home. All treatments need to be prepaid at least 2-3 weeks in advance in order to hold the reservation because I am only able to schedule 4 people in November. These detox treatments do not include the above consultation and products.
The anticipated results of doing a personal cleanse are increased flexibility of the mind and body, increased bliss and lightness through out, more energy, and greater immunity.
If you are interested in the cleanse, please email me back a time you would like a consultation or call me to set up an appointment at 530 401 8627.
