What to expect during your consultation

Blissful Balance Ayurveda hosts consultations in the serene, healing ambience of the salt room at Halo Salt Spa in Westlake Village. Sit in the pink salt, breathe deep, and explore solutions for your optimum health.

Ayurvedic counseling is a very thorough, customized process. A two-hour initial consultation with your practitioner is the discovery process.

 Merissa will compile information from your intake paperwork to assess your diet, digestion, elimination, emotions, psychology, sleep patterns, and so forth. 

This information will be the foundation of your customized practice, showing you where imbalance may lie and providing the solutions and support to find your bliss.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Philosophy


The wisdom of Ayurveda applies to each person individually by assessing your dosha, or Ayurvedic constitution. Your dosha is your unique biochemistry, consisting of a unique combinations of elements. There is no set diet regimen that will work for each person exactly the same, and this is why mainstream diets do not have the same results for everyone.

A Balanced Lifestyle

Ayurveda uses five-sense therapy methods to create a customized system for creating balance and optimum health. This is done on a case-by-case basis. Five sense therapy means taking a close and honest look at the quality of the content you are digesting through your five senses, and discerning their effects upon your mind. Examples: 

What kind of information do you take in? Is it negative or inspiring? 

What kind of touch do you receive? Is it nourishing? Or non-existant?

What kinds of foods do you eat? Are all the tastes accounted for? (sweet, sour, salty, astringent, etc)

What do you listen to? How does it make you feel?

What do you see? Is there beauty to be seen in your home, office, and life? Or is it cluttered?

Agni: Your digestive fire

Each dosha has a unique digestive system which is based on the combination of elements comprising that dosha. The efficiency of your digestive system affects your entire life: mood, energy levels, and longevity. You could be eating the best foods, superfoods, and herbs available, but if you have faulty digestion it will be to no effect. Your health starts in your digestive system!
