Will you, or someone you know, be spending some much needed vacation time on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii? If so, you may want to consider spending some much needed time on yourself as well!
This retreat package is designed to teach you how to better take care of yourself; body, mind, and soul. I will give you a health and nutritional Ayurvedic consultation that will focus on the physical side of well being. I will teach you how to naturally relieve stress and calm the mind through a Vedic meditation technique. And I will treat your body and soul with the healing powers of massage and sound.
You will receive:
1. An Ayurvedic consultation. Ayurveda is an ancient form of preventative medicine that focuses on determining and addressing current physiological imbalances. I will give you an introduction to what Ayurveda is, and how it can help you. This session will also determine your unique constitution, and current imbalances. An Ayurvedic assessment leads to specific recommendations, addressing both health history and particular concerns. You will be given specific recommendations to assist you on the path to balancing your physiology. Some examples of suggestions may include dietary and nutritional advice, herbs, activities, meditation and relaxation techniques, aromatherapy, and yoga techniques.
Also included will be one follow up session to see how you are doing with the recommendations and to reassess imbalances and suggestions.
After your consultation, you will receive a list of certain spices and foods you can use to help balance your physiology. You will also receive a list of foods to favor, which you can refer to while shopping at some of the Big Island's wonderful organic farmers' markets.
*** This is not intended to replace any current health routines, doctor visits, or prescription drugs you may be on. Everything that will be recommended to you can be safely used alongside any current health routines you have. My goal is to teach and empower you with different ways of taking care of yourself.
2. Meditation Instruction
I will teach you a Vedic, heart-based meditation. This is an amazing technique to relieve stress, anxiety, and expand your consciousness. This technique utilizes a mantra, specially chosen for you based on your birth chart, to help calm the mind and purify the nervous system. Practicing this meditation is one of the most powerful things you can do to help release all the stress you’ve taken in throughout your life, and leads to a calmer, happier, more balanced state of being day to day.
3. Jyotish Birth Chart reading
Jyotish is an eastern form of astrology which differs from the western system we all known. During this reading, I will explain the differences between the western and eastern systems, as well as give you a birth chart reading. This involves looking at where all the planets were in the sky when you were born. This is a window into what you are looking to do here in this life. It will go into every aspect of your life: career, love, family and purpose, to name a few. This is a really fun thing to have done if you’ve never had a reading before. And if you have, this may vary slightly because it is from the perspective of a different, ancient eastern system.
4. Massage Therapy Session
Massage and Sound Therapy Session
The first option is an Integrated Massage Therapy session. I am an LMT and have been trained in an array of modalities that include Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Lomi Lomi, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Pre-Natal Massage. During this massage, I will focus on any areas that need special attention as well as giving you a full body experience.
The second option is to incorporate Sound Healing into your massage experience. This is a very special treatment. You will experience 60min of massage, ultimately putting you into a very relaxed state. You will then receive 30min of Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Therapy. I will work with four Alchamy Crystal Bowls and two Tibetan Bowls on, and around, your body. Sound is a powerful healer. When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease. With dis-ease, a different sound pattern or frequency is established in the affected part of the body. When sound is projected into the dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns are restored. In this way we use sound to break up any energetic blockages, and restore the body's natural harmonic patterns.

5. Experience a Sound Bath
Don’t worry, there is no water involved in this bath… :)
Be immersed in the sounds of Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, and the Gong. This is a very powerful relaxation with sound. All of these instruments are able to bring listeners to altered states of consciousness, opening you to healing, and connecting you to more expansive states of reality. This is a very special experience and can really only be explained properly, by experiencing it for yourself.
