This integral aspect of health is starting to get the attention it deserves in the west.
In an age of constant stimulation, those seeking to maintain or rebuild health must accept that you can’t drive yourself into a state of wellbeing through sheer sweat and will. Some stress is good for you – but when you are constantly pressured, pushed and overstimulated – your health depends on restoration.
According to a 2015 Nielsen study, people generally turn to gym memberships for restoration. But no amount of exercise is going to help you replenish depleted reserves. Appropriate exercise is important for well being. But it won’t rejuvenate your mind/body/spirit in the way that concentrated and effective relaxation and restoration will.
Mindfulness, emotional balance and reinforcement of the mind/body connection are increasingly important in a time when constant connectivity, movement and overstimulation leaves you exhausted and depleted. Ayurveda offers powerful rejuvenation that restores and fortifies vitality at the cellular level and offers tools for ongoing wellness.
Rejuvenation and Relaxation is an area in which Ayurveda shines. The arena of R&R is called Rasayana in Ayurveda’s language of origin. Rasayana is a branch of Ayurveda devoted to increasing lifespan and vitality.
Most people not only fail to recognized the benefits of R&R; they truly don’t understand what to do to “get it” or where to go to find it. We’re here to lift the veil and show you the way. Introducing you to profound restoration and relaxation through Ayurveda is our mission.
Through Rasayana, Ayurveda provides a time-tested and time-honored process that offers a truly nurturing and supported break from everyday life, providing deep nourishment and replenishment of mind, body and soul. Rasayana assists in the restoration and maintenance of youthfulness, keeping you fit and balanced physically, emotionally and mentally. In the tradition of Ayurveda, individuals should undergo Rasayana programs regularly to live long and vibrant lives.
Rasayana therapy promotes youthfulness and vitality, improves skin quality, condition and glow, improves sleep, memory and concentration, clears the voice, improves the capacities of the sense organs (eyes, nose, tongue, ears, skin and mouth) builds the body’s immunity. Bodily strength is improved and the mind is lulled into a state of peace and calm.

“I treated myself to a 3-day rejuvenation process which included many Ayurvedic treatments. Valerie’s warmth, deep knowledge and hands-on talent was simply fantastic. I learned a lot about the science of Ayurveda too. The entire process was simply wonderful and a great thing to do especially during a key life transition. Thank you VitaLiving for creating such an amazing place.” -Barbara Dehart, Nevada City

“I’ve never been so rejuvenated in just 3 short days – ever. My rejuvenation program was beyond the most incredible experience in my life time. Valerie, the most amazing, gifted and caring practitioner made me feel incredibly comfortable. My treatment came with amazing and tasty prepared food. The lovely calming music and atmosphere was a great start for my 3 day rejuvenation. It’s been 2 days since my last treatment and I feel incredibly great! My energy level is up, my aches and pains are gone and most importantly I feel incredibly uplifted by everything Ayurveda has done for me. What an incredibly gift. I would recommend VitalLiving in a heart beat. Thank you Valerie for being part of making me whole!” – Christine P.
