a happy, healthy modern life
Modern life is busy, exciting and full of almost endless opportunities for success and fulfillment, but these qualities often create significant challenges for your health and wellness. The fast pace of daily living, demanding schedules, dietary shortcuts and multi-tasking all impact your quality of life. They increase everyday stress and disrupt the balance of your three “doshas”. The goal of Dakini Ayurveda is to identify your unique Ayurvedic constitution and your current state of imbalance, then create and guide you through a comprehensive treatment program to restore optimal health in body, mind and spirit.
vata, pitta, kapha
In Ayurveda, five elements make up everything in the universe – earth, water, air, fire and ether. These elements conjoin to form the bodily humors that are the foundations of health and disease, the three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Doshas constantly function in relation to one another to carry out the physiological processes of your body and mind. Dakini Ayurveda works to identify and heal the root cause of your disease rather than to simply treat the symptoms. Your unique balance of the doshas is determined at conception and contributes to how you look, your personality, and even the types of symptoms you tend to experience.
Panchakarma (meaning “five actions”) refers to the five powerful Ayurvedic cleansing principles used to release accumulated toxins and stress. We encounter toxins every day, from processed foods to environmental pollutants, from the general overuse of our senses to human interactions. Over time, these toxins obstruct the body’s channels and embed themselves into organs and tissue, leaving the body susceptible to pain, disease, and weakened immunity. Dakini Ayurveda’s panchakarma programs clear the body, mind, and consciousness of these accumulated toxins. The result is a rejuvenated mind-body system that leaves you feeling healthier and stronger with a sharper presence of mind and more peaceful sense of self.
