338 downloads | november 2, 2019 | martha soffer
martha soffer, owner of surya spa, speaks about the ancient tradition of ayurvedic medicine— lifestyle, environment, and detox (panchakarma). when we bring awareness back to our bodies, we’re then able to self-regulate our doshas (vatta, pitta, kapha) and live in a state of harmony. we chat about accessible preventative methods for everyone like self-massage, enemas, and eating a vegan diet.
the lovely martha soffer graced the podcast with her knowledge on ayurvedic medicine and the offerings of surya spa. i had the pleasure of visiting the spa several months ago in los angeles, where i was immediately entranced by the amber hues and earthy aromas. in our current political climate, it’s no wonder over 300 listeners wanted to hear about balancing their lifestyles and detoxing.
