This will include a an assessment of your body type (Dosha) and any health concerns you may have. The initial consultation for Ayurveda is approximately 1.5 hours.

Certain ailments affect how your heart and circulatory system function. For thousands of years, before x-rays and modern technology, the only way for healers to assess the strength of your circulatory system, was to use pulse diagnosis. In addition to reading your pulse, the feel of your pulse on your wrist artery, the shape of the artery and the amount of blood flow, all have a direct correlation to the proper functioning of the body.
At different locations on the wrist, your pulse is examined for the rate, strength, and quality. In combination with other factors, such as skin tone, respiration, and energy level. pulse diagnosis is a painless, inexpensive, and non-invasive method to aid in diagnosis of specific ailments and conditions. Pulse diagnosis must accompany proper and thorough physical examination, but it can help pinpoint or rule out causes for health problems.
