Combining the constitutional remedies of Homeopathy with the dietary and lifestyle recommendations of Ayurveda, individual strategies are provided for achieving and maintaining robust health of body, mind and spirit.


Homeopathy utilizes infinitesmal doses of highly potentized remedies to stimulate one’s own life force to create a healing response from the inside out.

In a homeopathy consultation, the totality of symptoms are explored on a mental, emotional and physical level and a remedy that matches this totality and essence of the person’s constitution is chosen.


Ayurveda, “knowledge of life,” is the ancient medicine from India, which identifies one’s constitution and the current imbalances that need to be shifted to restore core health.

In Ayurveda, diet and lifestyle are individualized and may involve strengthening the digestive function, removing toxins from the body, and rejuvenating depleted or damaged tissues through diet and herbs. Specific bodywork therapies are used in detox processes, as well as to treat muscles or joints that need special care and rejuvenation.

Andrew began his bodywork training in his youth and over the years enhanced his skills with training in shiatsu, tuina, sports massage and Ayurvedic bodywork therapies.  These therapies are utilized to relieve pain in joints and muscles and to restore health to areas that have been affected by trauma or chronic health conditions.

Often we hold onto age-old emotional hurts and traumas deep within our body and create a tight armor around specific areas.  Our body then holds certain postures and muscular rigidity that inhibit our free emotional expression and increase physical tension and pain.

Transformational Movement Therapy

Through Transformational Movement Therapy sessions, we are able to get in touch with where we are blocked and inhibited. Gradually, we can open up and remove these physical and emotional obstacles and arrive at a place of celebrating our joyous selves.

Dr. Andrew combines his training in Asian Bodywork (and their corresponding channels/meridians and marma/acupuncture points) with over 30 years of Eastern and Middle Eastern dance experience to help others release emotional blockages and physical rigidity and celebrate fluidity of feelings and movement.
