Try 5,000-Year-Old Ayurveda Science for Wellness
Licensed physical therapist assistant Christy Studant, owner of Live Powerfully Ayurveda, in Glen Ellyn, has 25 years of teaching experience and an extensive background in physical therapy. She is Stott Pilates certified, a 500-hour certified yoga teacher with Wild Abundant Life and an ayurvedic practitioner with New World Ayurveda.
She says, “Ayurveda is a complete medical system or science that includes observation, diagnosis and treatment. Ayurveda addresses diet, lifestyle, seasonal and daily routines, herbal/plant medicine, massage or touch therapy, detoxification and rejuvenation of the body, energy work and spiritual practice through yoga and meditation.”
The ayurvedic practitioner knows that the client is a dynamic being with a mind, body, emotions, a soul and a spirit. She advises, “Even if you are following allopathic medicine from your doctor, you can still incorporate ayurveda medicine. It is the most complete medical system on the planet.”
