Sage Center is the place for holistic care in the Crossroads District of downtown Kansas City. In addition to Ayurvedic consultations and treatments, Sage offers chiropractic care and massage. Just as our offerings of classes and services are rich in their tradition, our teachers and practitioners are full of knowledge, expertise and heart.
Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, differs from conventional medicine in that it pays great respect to each individual as a unique being in nature while managing the ongoing imbalances we endure from day to day, season to season, year to year. While Western medicine has only recently adopted a multi-dimensional definition of health (physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being), Ayurveda has fully embraced and practiced this theory for thousands of years. A large part of the practice is based on our dosha, our constitution relative to physique, physiology and psyche. Knowing your dosha helps you to know thyself so that you can easily reverse directions when headed down the wrong path.
Your consultation will include a diagnosis of your prakriti (your inherent constitution) and your vikruti (current state of imbalance). With this assessment, recommendations will be made for finding a healthier state of balance through such things as daily routine, food, body treatments, yoga or herbal therapy.
