What our clients have to say about…

aligning with the rhythms of nature

I can’t believe how much I have changed over the course of this year because of Ayurveda (she says as she sips her lime rose water). I am so much closer to my true self, and rarely lose my shit anymore. Excellent perks!

Honestly the best gift I have given myself in a long time. I am going to see my son tomorrow and ask him he would like to have the experience. Thanks again.  Thank you for your devotion to what you love and offering it to the community.

exploring the foundational principles of Ayurveda

I found working with Katrina to be very knowledgeable as well as healing. Her workshops are thoughtfully planned, providing just enough information in each course to keep you wanting for more! And Yes! I will be back!

I joined the Ayurveda study group in order to better understand myself and my doshas. I have learned so much more than I thought possible. Katrina’s easy approach to explaining the complexities of Ayurveda as well as her vast knowledge of the human body from a western perspective blend seamlessly to offer a varied and interesting look at Ayurveda.

I have taken both the basic and advanced classes now and I feel like my understanding of Ayurveda has deepened. I want to keep learning and working with Katrina for years to come.

I appreciate grounded & holistic health advice that I can trust.

working with Katrina

I learn a lot each session and appreciate that very much! Thank you Katrina. You are amazing.

Great experience. Katrina gave me exactly what I asked for ~ in the form that works for me. I’m very appreciative. Thanks so much!

I can’t even begin to express how helpful and nourishing my appt was yesterday!!  I felt like a lot was covered and accomplished…I felt listened to, validated, and inspired to make adjustments for the better!! I am really looking forward to continuing this work!!

truth be known it just makes me feel good sitting in that room with you talking, so I am eager to be there

And may I say how fabulous and wonderful I will find your sessions. I just love them. Thank you so much for helping me through this. It sure does make it a lot better.

The thing I’m most loving is that I feel like I’m finally  doing something. At first it seemed a little overwhelming because there’s a lot of things to do but it’s really not and it’s so much better having those things to do than sitting around waiting for something to happen and being fearful of it. So pretty much you’re taking my fear away. And for that you’re my superhero.

I know I always thank you, but can it ever be enough. Every time I leave there, I’m inspired to be healthy and to learn more and more and more so thank you thank you thank you. And I just took the first dose of that ion stuff because they did in fact have it at the co-op and I got the vitamin D3 there too.

It was so nice to see you, but it was just such a good hour for me. It’s nice to be heard when you feel good and it’s nice to know there are things to do always and I’m just really so grateful for you.

working with Laura

I love having the Ayurvedic Health Center & its staff as a resource here in Bellingham.  Laura is very professional, helpful, and non-judgemental.  I went for a consult the first year the center opened and was recommended a custom herbal formula to help with allergies I’ve had since childhood.  I was amazed at how effective it was!  I still need to take the formula from time to time but it beats allergies and the usual drugs that just relieve the symptoms. Ayurveda works at a deeper level. And the Abhyanga massages are truly blissful and beneficial.

I have had numerous massages from various practitioners all over the globe but none are as good as Laura’s. She invites us into a realm of beauty and nurturance as we enter a climate of ideal conditions: a warm room, warm oils, soft lighting, peaceful music.

She is a lovely human being, exuding joy, understanding and calm; her massages demonstrate her art as a healer. Laura is able to “read” people’s needs, and she ministers accordingly.

I believe there is a profound benefit beyond the physical; I feel euphoric many days after, thanks to her healing touch. I send friends and family to her on a regular basis. We depart our massages with a deep sense of peacefulness and ease and wellness. We are so fortunate to have Laura in our community!

transforming your relationship to your body with Structural Integration

I am extremely appreciative of the Structural Integration work I received from Katrina. She is patient, knowledgeable and most importantly, curious. She always inquired about how my body was feeling at the start of each session. This encouraged me to be more in touch with my body. After my sessions with Katrina, I feel more loose, more informed and more connected to my body.

Structural Integration has completely transformed my body and my life in a way I never thought would be possible. When I first started seeing Katrina, I was miserable. My physical vitality was at an all-time low, and I barely had the emotional energy to take care of myself, much less experience pleasure. I was so cold and so tense that I couldn’t even sleep. Katrina met me where I was at with gentleness; she was kind to my body, delivering the SI work with an intuitive sense of the depth and pressure my then-fragile frame could sustain. Every session unfolds within the sacred energetic container she holds, and I feel spiritually nourished from the very first second I walk through her door. The SI work is intense and every motion purposeful, integrating the physical body with the energetic body in a profound way. This work has been foundational to my spiritual awakening, to my taste of Kundalini activation, and restoring my internal fire to the point where I can skinny dip nearly any time of year to my heart’s desire. Katrina is a modern-day alchemical master who transmutes pain into pleasure through the ancient truths of Ayurveda and herbalism: I will forever be grateful that our paths crossed in this lifetime, because I can’t imagine existing as an embodied human woman without her touch.

After finishing the SOMA series of bodywork treatments with Katrina, I am standing taller, with greater confidence, and I am so much more at ease in my body, and in myself. No more rounded shoulders! What a relief! I have better vision, and my chronic headaches are far fewer and less intense.

I’m succeeding more in work and life after these integrative sessions, and very grateful for Katrina’s skill, compassion, humor, and grace as a practitioner. This is deep work, requiring a great deal of trust in the therapist, and I could tell right away I would be safe on her table.

Another bonus, since I’m also a bodyworker: these sessions have given me a refreshed perceptual understanding of the fascial web in all its glory & connectivity, in my own body and in my clients. Thank you, Katrina!


exploring what Medical Astrology has to offer

Ever since we did the reading in October, I’ve completely shifted to Vedic astrology. It was so on point for me, although I’ve never had a tropical reading done. I have a better understanding of tropical, but the reading you did really blew me away with how insightful it was into my life. Ayurveda is also a big contributor steering me towards Vedic sciences over westernized modalities.

the importance of taking time away from the busy-ness of life to rejuvenate

During the past two months I’ve found Ayurveda treatments helpful and illuminating. In particular, the five-day Bliss treatment was exceptional. I highly recommend it as a means to calm, rejuvenate, open and heal oneself. The practitioners offer professional, individualized healing treatments. They are knowledgeable and have loving passion for Ayurveda health care.

Thanks for all of your support along my journey. You and Laura are the best.
