Wisdom of the Body

Sep 16, 2021

Listen to Tesia Love, a Clinical Ayurvedic Practitioner, Bodyworker, Herbalist and Yoga Teacher from Charlotte, NC, discuss with Heather various ways we can nurture ourselves and be nurtured through Ayurvedic bodywork. Understand the importance of surrender and allowing someone to care for you. Ayurveda is not all about the food you eat. It encompasses so much more, including self care, herbalism, yoga, massage practices to heal and balance the doshas and the spiritual self, and even yoni steaming. Enjoy!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Supportive healing touch
  • Spiritual suffering
  • Connecting to the divine
  • Healing imbalances before they become a disease
  • Body therapies to aid digestion
  • Body therapies to help you sleep
  • Abhyanga and shirodhara
  • Self massage vs clinical massages
  • How oil is used to balance vata dosha
  • How body workers must care for themselves in order to be of good service to their clients
  • How the environment, intention and intimacy of body work with a therapist serves in the healing process
  • Benefits of yoni steaming, or vaginal steaming
  • The benefits of allowing someone else to do some of the work for you
