Shyama focuses her practice on Women's Health Concerns including pregnancy, fertility, postpartum, PMS, hormone imbalance, anxiety, depression, mood swings, & other gynecological conditions. In addition, she also treats pain(chronic & acute), digestive concerns, stress & energy issues, allergies, colds & flues, migraines, cleansing, and detoxing. Shyama treats each client with a unique and personal approach and believes in healthy living. A balanced body, mind, and spirit allows for optimum quality of life. Eating whole foods, exercising, meditating, self care and preventative medicine all provide a holistic approach to healthy living. Traditional Chinese Medicine addresses the whole person, by determining and addressing the underlying causes of your health conditions rather than simply addressing the symptoms. This system of medicine truly aligns with Shyama's philosophy.
Shyama will work with you, using the ancient wisdom of traditional chinese medicine, to restore your body's balance & enhance your quality of life. Her holistic approach focuses on three main areas: lifestyle/emotional wellness, a healthy diet, and exercise/stress relief. Upon completing the traditional chinese medicine consultation process, Shyama will recommend acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Cupping, Moxibustion, Electro-stimulation, various dietary changes (seasonal and whole organic foods), and/or various nutritional supplements to help clients achieve optimal health.
As well as spending time with her family and friends, Shyama loves the arts and travel. Her past trips to Africa, India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Hawaii, and Mexico keep her inspired to see other countries in the world! Meditation and yoga, singing, playing music and being in nature keep her grounded and calm throughout her very busy days.
