This is how it all begins when you come for an
appointment at Jivan Shakti Ayurved Health Centers the
world over.First, each client arrives and
registers to check-in at the clinic.
To the vaidya, the pulse is a
subtle language that the adept practitioner learns to
“read.” These 360 subtle variations of the pulse are
indicators to the underlying physiological imbalances
that can cause acute and chronic disease. As the
vaidya reads the pulse, he or she is able to
ascertain what is happening in your body, mind and
emotions. Although the science of “reading” the pulse in
this way is still not well known in the United States,
Ayurvedic practitioners have successfully practiced this
technique for thousands of years.
After reading the pulse in a matter of
seconds, the vaidya will share with you his
findings and recommendations. Depending on the nature of
your health or condition, your Ayurvedic practitioner
may recommend a few herbal supplements and suggest a
particular diet. Sometimes the vaidya will
recommend specialized Ayurveda therapies known as
panchakarma and marma chikitsa.
