In the article “Urban Renewal” on The Bold Italic, author Tienlon Ho writes about her experience doing an Ayurvedic cleanse and receiving Ayurvedic massage from yours truly!


On Saturday, I went to see Courtney LaCava at Dakini Ayurveda in Noe Valley for an abhyanga massage, an Ayurvedic technique that uses custom herb-infused oils to release toxins and, as Courtney put it, “help reduce your dependence on unstable bolsters” – like alcohol and coffee – “for relaxation and energy.” Technically, my evening sesame oil rubdowns were doing the same thing, but in Courtney’s hands, this was a massage unlike any other.


She met with me to receive Ayurvedic bodywork and to learn more from me about Ayurveda and how it helps people to heal on a deep level, understand their physical, mental and emotional patterns, and create more balance in their lives on a day-to-day basis.  If you’re interested in doing what Tienlon did, through cleansing, consultations, bodywork or all three, feel free to contact me.
