Traditional Ayurvedic Consultations & Oil Therapies with Mary Flinn

Enter the world of Ayurveda, a sister science to Yoga and one of the most ancient healing arts.  The Mother earth holds inside of her millions of years of history in human evolution and wisdom from the ages. Within her body she is a source of healing and nourishment.
The philosophy of Ayurveda is rooted in the ancient texts of India. The basis of which is ‘as above so below’. In essence that the structure of the universe is the same as the structure in each one of us. The philosophy is intricately woven in the 5 elements of Ether, Air, Water, Fire and Earth. Each person is a combination of all of these elements and Ayurveda has tools and techniques to discover how to create balance for each individual constitution.
The types of constitutions have been divided into 3, Vata (wind/air) Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water/earth). Read on to learn more about an Ayurvedic Consultation with Master Teacher Mary Flinn, who has been teaching for almost 30 years and who travels to India annually to continue expanding her knowledge.

Ayurvedic Oil Therapies Explained

An Ayurveda Consultation includes an overview of your own personal Dosha (constitution). The consultation also includes lifestyle changes and additions such as diet, exercise, meditation, and aromatherapy. 

Oil Therapies are also ways to cleanse and heal the body of toxins and stress. These therapies can be a part of your ‘Dinacharya’ or daily routine. They include: Nasya or nasal oiling, Abhyanga (self oil massage) and an Oil Therapy Basti (treatment), which we offer here at Prana Das. 

Don’t Live in Discomfort!

Ayurvedic Oil Therapy can help.

An Oil therapy or Basti is a combination of warm medicated oil poured into a dough dam that surrounds the painful area, followed by massage,  and heat or sudation. The treatment takes about 40 minutes.
