As a therapist I will perform treatments that will assist with re-balancing your constitutional dosha.   We are born with a dominant dosha, that can be affected by everyday life which may cause imbalance.  When you arrive for a treatment as listed below I will determine your dosha first to assist in using herb infused oils to assist with balance.
