If you’d like specific clarification between the various forms of Ayurveda, please read on. Wujastyk and Smith describe New Age Ayurveda as being defined by characteristics that include a commercialized form of Ayurveda centered around wellness, fundamental components of good health, as preventative care, linking Ayurveda to Indian Spirituality such as Yoga, and having a basis body-mind-spirit medicine. Modern Ayurveda involves the current state of Ayurveda as it exists in India today that was heavily influenced by the British colonization and its western medical influence. Whereas, Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine is specifically rooted in classical training that involves the direct teachings of the classical texts of Ayurveda.

As a professional registered nurse working with highly critical populations I realized that I was not immune to the... stressors of that environment. I was developing sub clinical symptoms that eluded medical treatment. During this very stressful situation I sought out other forms of healing and re-centering. I cannot stress enough the impact of coming to STILL POINT AYURVEDA. Antonio is an Incredible practitioner and follows traditional Vedic practice. He is not swayed by fed treatments or gimmicks. He is the real thing! If you are trying to get to a “still point” in your own life it is well worth the investment to come back to center into your own health and wealth. These treatments are very old and time tested. You will be very happy with Antonio! Good luck on your healing journey:)read more

Dr Antonio is an absolute gift to your health and your soul. He spends the time to really understand your body and... mind’s constitution, helps you see where you are falling off in a way traditional medicine completely ignores, and formulates a plan. So much gratitude for him and feel so optimistic about my health going forward.read more
