When I started my career in the spa industry I was 18 years old. I worked at a small salon on Cape Cod to get my feet wet and within a year moved to an upscale spa in Boston on the bustling Boylston St. It was during my tenure at this spa that I began my journey in spa education. I took classes from the experts in the industry on the most effective treatments on the skin care market.
This is when I began my classes in Ayurveda. Throughout the 10 years in Boston I continued to learn and implement the Ayurvedic philosophy into my treatments.
Ayurveda is one of the oldest holistic healing systems in the world, developed in India more that 5,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on the balance between mind, body and spirit. The goal is to prevent disease and imbalance before it begins. When the balance is disrupted, we are more likely to develop conditions like anxiety, skin problems, depression, obesity, and cancer among other health problems.
As I continued on in my career and attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a Certified Health Coach, I realized the same basic concepts of Ayurveda applied to the approach taken with health coaching, with some extensions. The core areas said to achieve Mind, Body and Spirit balance are : · Nutrition and Water Intake · Sleep · Stress Management · Exercise · Body and Skin Care (i.e Massage, Herbal Skin Care Products) · Home Environment · Home Cooking · Relationships · Social Life · Finances · Career · Joy · Spirituality · Education · Creativity We decided to make our own “Citron Healthy Beauty Circle” : a circle that includes the core areas of wellness that most directly impact your health, skin and beauty.
To determine which areas need more attention and balance and which areas you are excelling in, rate each area on the chart below on a scale of 1-5. 1 being dissatisfied, 5 being satisfied.
*Note that during our Health Coaching programs we would address all areas listed above to guide you in achieving optimum health and wellness results.
