Shirodhara & Svedana  ~ An Ayurvedic Treatment

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old science of natural and holistic healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. According to Ayurveda, the center of the forehead, or Third Eye, is the seat of intuition, spirituality and healing.

Shirodhara

This is a simple, yet profound treatment that works specifically on balancing and stabilizing the activity of the mind. Warm, herbal oil is continuously streamed over the Ajna Chakra or Third Eye, taking the participant on a journey deep within.

Benefits Include:

  • Bring balance and harmony to body, mind and spirit
  • Generates a profound state of relaxation in body and mind and relieves stress
  • Rejuvenates and opens up the flow of energy in the body

Welcome to SimpleVeda!

Welcome to SimpleVeda! I’m so glad you’re here!

SimpleVeda was created with a passion for healing the WORLD!  In order for me to do that, I had to first heal MYSELF!

My journey began as a yoga student and then led to becoming a yoga teacher. As a yoga teacher the common question I received from my students was, “what do you eat?”  Geez, do I really tell them?  This common question forced me look at my eating habits and question IF what I was eating was the best choice for my mind and body.

After seeing an Ayurvedic practitioner in 2005 I began to understand my digestion and what foods resonated with my body and which ones didn’t. Through this process I was able to lose weight, reduce many digestive disturbances that I thought were “normal”, and begin what I call my “Spiritual Journey”.

After 3 years of self study, I decided I wanted to know more about Ayurveda, beyond what foods to eat and which ones to avoid. I wanted to understand this ancient science that the yogis lived by for thousands of years! It had to be more than just what you eat!

In 2009 I graduated from the California College of Ayurveda in Grass Valley, CA where I learned the deeper dimensions of Ayurveda. It was the most amazing journey I’ve been on! Living this lifestyle has bettered my life and the lives of my family. I feel so fortunate to be teaching this to my 2 year old son!
In today’s society we are inundated with responsibilities and the amount of stress on American’s is gross. Every day we get caught up in the dramas of life and we get lost.  Ayurveda is THE pathway to find your true Self. Ayurveda creates a balanced life; it will help you to slow down while still being productive, it will reduce the aging process, it reduces the impact of stress, it will lead to an understanding of WHO you are and your purpose!

I invite you to connect with me as I post Ayurvedic related information, recipes, and more on this blog!  Connect with me on my website and if you feel empowered, come see me for a consultation!

In Divine Health,

Christina
