Emanda Thomas, CASi

Greetings! I found Ayurveda in my own personal search for a natural health and healing path. The more I learned, the more passionately I felt about sharing this beautiful ancient wisdom with others. I appreciate Ayurveda the most for what it teaches us about the importance of what we digest through all of the senses and the interconnectedness of our mind, heart, and body. This is what I focus on with my clients. I work from the perspective that healing is a journey, so do it with love. I’d love to support you in your wellness journey.
