Ayurvedic Lifestyle

As a child, I used to help injured and frightened animals, patiently bringing them back to health and rekindling their trust in humans. I often stood up for the rights of kids less able to fend for themselves, and built self-esteem in those who had none. Later on, after losing my way and finding it again through love and higher power, I became inspired to study the Healing Arts after a workshop with Deepak Chopra. Over the years, I went on to complete certifications in massage therapy, Pilates, meditation, Feldenkrais and ultimately Ayurveda, which includes lymphatic massage, nutrition, Aromatherapy, sound healing and herbal medicine. I am NAMA certified and an Ayurvedic Practitioner at the dhyana Center in California.

Through my own needs, I began formulating remedies for skin care, mood enhancement, hormonal imbalances and created the product line, Melina’s Garden.

I specialize in Pulse consultations, Menopause, breast health, tongue analysis, body alignment and the use of Ayurvedic tools such as Guasha & Cupping Therapy. On the table I practice Abhyanga, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Marma Chikitsa, Reiki, Netra Basti, Lymphatic, and Nourishing Massage, paying particular attention to the neck and shoulders.

A consultation with me will give you the opportunity to understand your body better and how to best support yourself through lifestyle, nutrition and self-care.

I am a mother of three outstanding young adults. I love life and want to help others feel well and happy. I am available via email, phone or Skype for counsel in health and life!

Aloe Vera Juice & Alcohol Consumption!

If you’re wondering how you can help your body adjust to alcohol when you drink it, try Aloe Vera Juice before going to bed. It will give your organs the chance to alkalize the acidity of the alcohol while you sleep!

Half a cup should do it! More if you’ve been a bit hard on the ol’ beverages.

You can’t go wrong with Aloe Vera Juice (inner fillet). Whether you drink or not, it is always a treat for your organs. Give it a try every night for a month and see how you feel!

House Calls Anyone?

Are you old enough to remember the days when your doctor would come over to your house? House calls were a given in country villages all over Europe. Close connection to your doctor and midwife is potent medicine in itself.

An Ayurvedic Practitioner, just like a doctor in those golden days, will ask to see your tongue and read your pulse. They will study the texture, temperature and color of your skin, too. As a Practitioner, I’d like to know you personally to delve deeper into understanding your constitution and what is beneficial to your good health.

I am available to come to your home and organize your kitchen with you according to your constitution.

I can teach you how to make Ayurvedic staples, such as Ghee and Kitchari, and smoothies appropriate for your constitution.

I’ll share favorite recipes and ancient methods of lifestyle, and leave you feeling like you have a grasp on how to change your diet, your health and your life through these nutritional and lifestyle suggestions.

Please pass this on to family and friends who may need this service! I can travel anywhere – well just about anywhere!

In appreciation ~ 🙂
