"Over the years I have experienced panchakarma treatments in various locations including Ottawa Canada, Portland Oregon and Southern India. Ivy's treatments have delivered the most tangible health results of them all. Ivy creates a sacred space for healing where my comfort, nurturance and health are the focus of her considerable skills. I highly recommend Ivy."

" My pursuit of health began in earnest in 1974 when I learned meditation and yoga. A decade later I discovered Ayurveda which has had a profound impact on my health and well being, especially yearly panchakarma treatments. My favourite panchakarma experience by far is with Ivy who has been treating me for over twenty years. I always leave my treatment purring in a heightened state of awareness. Ivy is simply the best !" Gratefully.

"When you walk through the door into Ivy’s treatment room, you cross a threshold into another world where sacred music plays, incense scents the air, Ganesha presides and herbs and tinctures await. My three-day treatment on Ivy’s table was as warm and sweaty as a Kerala evening with heated oils massaged and dark pastes scrubbed and steamed into my parched skin. Shirodara treatment soothed and opened my mind. By the third day of Panchakarma, my sinuses were clear, my colon flushed, and my skin juicy. Insights came so quickly that I couldn’t articulate them. But afterwards, in the sanctuary of my home, in the private space of my journal, I remembered lucidly what I had learned under Ivy’s competent and healing hands: I am a creative being, my body this divine gift."

"Thank you, Ivy and Veda, for my amazing immersion into Panchakarma … the best 7 intentionally restorative days of my life. I felt heard and healed and touched on every level of my being. So profound!
I will carry what I learned and what I felt during my time with you, in my soul's heart for many years to come! Anyone contemplating PK will, I hope, find you and allow themselves to be nurtured into releasing or embracing what is meant to be..."

"When Ivy began the marma treatment, at first I was skeptical that it would have much effect. However, within a minute or two, my nervous system began to calm substantially, and as she continued, I entered a deep state of relaxation, with reduced thought activity. At the end of the treatment, there was very little thought and there was a clear vision of a small amrit kalash container. It was very peaceful."
