Feel empowered to take your health into your own hands. Whether you are working with a known pathology or not, Ayurveda looks at your current symptoms from a unique, holistic perspective. Mind, body, senses and soul are all a part of our well-being. During the initial consultation, I will get a clearer picture from you about your health background, present state of body/mind, and current routines. Simple changes in lifestyle and diet can achieve profound results.
Learn about Ayurveda to manage stress, anxiety, irregular or painful menstruation, infertility, insomnia, pain, indigestion, IBS, allergies, obesity, and more. Feel free to inquire with questions before booking.
We will establish your Prakriti (constitution or elemental make-up) and Vikriti (present state of imbalance). In this session, we will begin to see which elements may be in excess, and which may be causing an imbalance. Ayurveda uses foods, daily and seasonal rhythms, bodywork, and herbs to introduce beneficial qualities which balance the elements in the body. Based on which dosha(s) may be aggravated, I may make diet and lifestyle (routine, yoga, pranayama) suggestions that can restore equilibrium to your body and mind. Herbs may be recommended if necessary, and you may choose to schedule a follow-up consultation or bodywork.
I take great care to offer tips and resources for integrating and maintaining healthy routines that work with your daily schedule and responsibilities. I understand that changing your life takes time! We begin by focusing on the few things that are most likely to be effective for bringing you into balance during the present season and your stage of life. As new routines are integrated, self-awareness will guide you into choices that support well-being.

According to Ayurveda, the change of seasons is the natural time to cleanse. A cleanse can be lightening as well as nourishing. It is a time to reset our intentions and realign ourselves with our changing environment, boost agni (metabolism) as well as burn up or remove ama (toxins.) A great idea for all – can greatly benefit those suffering from seasonal allergies, fatigue, mental cloudiness, depression or skin issues.

“As someone who is moving towards a more mindful and balanced lifestyle having been recently diagnosed with medical hypoglycemia, my consultation with Adena not only helped me to identify my dosha and adjust my habits accordingly, but more importantly, it was an extremely grounding experience. My time with Adena felt both sacred and practical; she met me where I was at and went no further. I was offered invaluable diet and lifestyle advice in support of both my process and my body’s natural rhythms. I am extremely thankful for Adena’s healing gifts and look forward to working with her over the years.” Jennifer Kerns, Reiki Master Teacher, Burlington, VT.
“A huge thanks to you and your support over the past week! The last 3 days of my cleanse have been full of happiness and energy! I am continuing on with self massage, lemon water, and remembering to eat warm foods for lunch. Plus now I have a bunch of new recipes that are healthy and things I would never have known about!” ~ Rachel Keyser, Winooski
