Ayurveda Consultations and Therapies

Initial Consultation: Your visit to the SCU Health Clinic will begin with a 60-minute Initial Consultation with one of our practitioners. Your practitioner will ask questions regarding your current state of imbalance, diet and lifestyle, in addition to a series of Ayurvedic diagnostic assessments, including tongue, pulse and dosha analysis. You will then be provided with an Ayurvedic program that includes herbal, dietary and lifestyle recommendations, along with therapeutic body treatments, if indicated.

Follow-up Consultation: Following your Initial Consultation, your practitioner will recommend a follow-up plan that may include a series of 30-minute follow-up consultations and/ or body therapies. During this session your practitioner will ask questions to assess your progress since the previous consultation. The follow-up consultations are highly recommended so that your practitioner can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment program.
