ABOUT BEENA VESIKAR
Beena's journey to the west was an interesting curve in her professional and personal life. After leaving her successful Ayurvedic practice in India and moving to the U.S., she realized that the demands of American life were completely different. The diet, culture, and environment starkly contrasted that of India. So Beena set out to blend the fundamental principles of Ayurveda with the food, lifestyle, and health imbalances of American society. She strongly believes in gently introducing Ayurveda in all walks of life rather than forcing an overwhelming shift in ones lifestyle.
She holds a Master’s degree in Ayurvedic Medicine, specialized in Internal Medicine called Kayachikitsa from the University of Pune India. She completed her Bachelor's degree (B.A.M.S) from the University of Pune India, as well. She has been practicing Ayurvedic medicine for over 22 years and has obtained considerable experience in academic and clinical Ayurveda. In addition to Ayurvedic medicine, Beena also studied clinical nutrition in order to more effectively guide her clients to a balanced lifestyle and diet.
She is a licensed massage therapist and CE provider for BeAyurvedic courses that specialize in Ayurvedic Massage and body therapies. She is a faculty member at Bodhananada Vedic Institute, which offers an AHC (Ayurvedic Health Counselor) program. Additionally Beena has developed online classes that offer in depth information on the Ayurvedic way of healthy living.
Beena is also one of the few Ayurvedic Physicians in the midwest who performs an authentic panchakarma therapy to help clients establish a balance between their mind and bodies.
Terri Newman: LMT
Terri has always had a natural propensity to help and support the wellbeing of those around her. Throughout her 20+ years in corporate environment, she saw high stress and non-stop demands take their toll on those around her as well as experiencing directly. That’s when she decided to combine her desire to help, with her lifelong passion for Massage.
She is a graduate from Irene’s Mayomassology institute and pursued her further training in Ayurvedic body work from Beena.
Terri combines the technique of reflexology, energy balancing and Swedish massage to release deep seated pain and relax the muscles. She believes in connecting with each client and creates a safe and comforting environment where a person can relax and move forward towards balance.
