    I have had many massages over the years, but an Ayurvedic massage with Mandy is truly an exceptional experience. I had wanted Shirohara since seeing it performed on a TV program about health and wellness. It was beyond extraordinary-- physically and emotionally. While both treatments are labor intensive for Mandy, she clearly has the experience, skill, and dedication that made me feel truly cared for. I feel such gratitude for my afternoon with Mandy and look forward to future sessions with her.

Mandy presented the program which I was looking for, namely providing weight loss as outlined in the book "The Prime" in an easy, understanding way with future support. I was looking for the holistic way to approach weight loss with Ayurvedic medicine and well-being with use of natural Indian herbs. Denise Deveau

I have never felt better! I came to Mandy with itchy, red, welty skin. She put me on a cleanse and gave me herbs to take after. She is not pushy at all and is available throughout the whole process to answer questions and help. I felt completely supported and safe in her care. I'm a week post cleanse, taking my herbs. My skin has calmed down and a HUGE plus, my seasonal allergies are not effecting me this year, at all. I Highly recommend this woman.
