Ayurveda, lets dive deeper


So what is Ayurveda?

I get this question a lot, or I hear - Ayurveda is to complicated. Yes, Ayurveda can be complicated, but I don't feel it should be and doesn't have to be.

Lets dive into Ayurveda.
First, how did I get to Ayurveda, lets go back a little ways. In 2006, I started my training at the Maharishi Ayurveda Center in Lancaster, MA. I had just finished a program at Dana Farber with Energy work and massage for cancer clients, when I started the training at the Ayurvedic center. The similarities between the two made for the perfect transition. Both looked at the importance of balance, digestion, proper sleep and the positive outlook of the emotions. As I dove into Ayurveda it was clear that being in balance with yourself and your environment effected every element of health. This was the beginning of a path in a  holistic lifestyle.

Ayurveda, lets dive deeper.
Ayurveda is one of the oldest known healing systems dating back thousands of years to India. This system was practiced and then handed down though families that would have trained their entire lives, and then taken over as the town Vaidya( Ayurvedic practitioner or Dr).  This was a healing method with much similarities to TCM(Traditional Chinese Medicine), they pull in the full body, emotional and spirit connection. Ayurveda has many branches of healing when working with you, from yoga, meditation, massage and herbs to create a whole body in balance.

Over time, with families shifting, moving, along with environmental and government changes, much of the practice was lost. This is now changing, we are revisiting these traditional techniques and bringing them into our modern world.

I will start to share with you in the coming week ways to add Ayurveda into your daily routine and  how some of the ways Ayurveda was applied still ring true today.
 
About me: I work and own Metta Wellness in Shrewsbury and Paxton. MA. I have been working, studying and implementing aspects from Ayurveda in my own life for the last 10years. My goal and love is to help you create a healthy balance in the world we live in through the many Ayurvedic branches.

Wow!
These last two months have been crazy, overwhelming, exciting and powerful.

We started this journey in 2005 when I finished and stepped away from massage school and entered the world of holistic healing with massage. Since I finished school I have continued to study, learn and train with different healing modalities from massage, meditation, herbs and always my clients.

In 2012 with the closing of Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center, it gave me the push to step out and  work for myself. Since 2012 it has been a journey from working with and inside of a meditation center to a wellness space and now moving into my own. From each space, this journey has been so powerful, from the people I have meet, worked with and watched, I have learned so much. Now as I enter into my own, I am so thankful for the journey and the people I have in my life. The support team Metta Wellness has, we have already succeeded, its now time to bring this dream to reality.

So what is coming next!             …

Om

Like the Mantra on my foot, it is the lotus coming up from the mud, patience, and beauty comes through. This is for me powerful. Metta Wellness stands for "loving kindness", with the lotus this is always a symbol for me that working through and staying on your path beauty opens.

Metta Wellness has been in a process of change, always moving forward, learning, and exploring along the way. As we moved into a new location, adding a second location and launching Metta Herbals into the online market and general public. Change, patience, and trust is my Mantra for this opening.

Lets step back a little. In May Metta Wellness moved into its new location in Shrewsbury,calming, easily located and just the right size.  This space also allows for the growth in Metta Wellness and Herbals. Taking time to set up and shift into this space (still organizing a few small details), adjusting and refocusing on the space and the path for Metta Wellness & Herbals. Change was our Mantra in May, …
