INITIAL CONSULTATION 60 MINUTES $200, 30 MINUTE FOLLOW-UP, $60 Anyone seeking recommendations for current health concerns or the maintenance of their optimum health can benefit from an Ayurvedic consultation. Ayurveda differs from conventional medicine in that it pays great respect to each individual as a unique being managing ongoing imbalances endured from our routine, the weather and the season. Ayurveda is a natural medicine, not in only the use of food, plants and routine to cure, but through its theory that we are a reflection of nature. Three constitutions, or doshas, are used to describe this concept within us. Each person's dosha is relative to physique, physiology and psyche and knowing your dosha gives you the roadmap to your health. A consultation will discuss your inherent dosha, doshic imbalance and a plan for health including routine, food and herbal therapies. While Ayurveda has been treating a magnitude of health conditions for thousands of years, we find it specifically helpful in treating digestive issues, skin imbalances, stress, female hormonal concerns, insomnia and maintaining healthy weight.
INITIAL APPOINTMENT $100, FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS $50 While many seek chiropractic care for musculoskeletal concerns, chiropractic has been used for treating conditions of the nervous system, allergies and headaches. Each patient under our care receives an exam, consultation and in-depth education on their respective condition. Independent of your reason for your visit, we feel it important that you have an active role in your care and have the appropriate tools to address your concerns. Thus in addition to treating with chiropractic manipulation and soft tissue therapies (Graston, ultrasound, TENS, cold laser), we use postural corrections and exercises for stretching, strengthening and neuromuscular re-education. We are currently only accepting insurance if you are covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna. If needed, we provide appropriate documentation for submitting to your own insurance provider.
FASCIAL MANIPULATION INITIAL APPOINTMENT $200, FOLLOW-UP $100 Fascial Manipulation (FM) is a hands-on technique that releases fascial restrictions and densifications through intense, deep pressure on critical points of the deep fascia. This practice results in proper glide of tissue and function that would otherwise alter biomechanics, range of motion, posture and pain. This is the most researched technique in fascial work and is effective in relief of chronic and acute pain, often requiring only one to three treatments.
Massage + AYURVEDIC BODYWORK
MASSAGE, 30 MINUTE $45, 60 MINUTE $90, 90 MINUTE $120 Our massage therapists use treatments ranging from light to deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretching in tailoring each massage specific to your needs.

ABHYANGA, 60 MINUTES, $90 Abhyanga is a traditional Ayurvedic treatment used to stimulate the subtle channels and systems through marma points and the healing properties of warm, herbal oil. The treatment begins with garshana, a dry lymphatic massage with raw silk gloves that stimulates circulation and prepares pores for the reception of warm oil. Abhyanga is oil application through rhythms massage, designed to calm the nervous system, promote deep relaxation and nourish the body. While abhyanga is suitable for all doshas and imbalances, it is especially effective in pacifying vata dosha.
AYURVEDIC HEAD, HAND AND FOOT TREATMENT, 60 MINUTES, $90 * For appointments, please book by calling Sage Center directly at 816-283-3108.* This treatment involves rhythmic massage of your head, hands and feet with the use of Ayurvedic herbal oils and facial masks. Techniques used to stimulate marma points in these areas with concentrated amounts of nerve endings allow for this to bring a complete sense of settling to your nervous system. This treatment is exceptional for de-stressing, increased lymphatic flow and circulation, and general grounding of the vata dosha. As with many Ayurvedic treatments, this uses generous amounts of oil. Please account for this when scheduling, as you will likely leave with oil in your hair. While this is a very therapeutic element of the treatment, the use of oil in your hair can be omitted if requested.
ROLFING, STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION, 75 MINUTES $100 Rolfing®Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that identifies structural imbalances in the body and uses direct tissue manipulation, education, and movement cues to tap into the body’s self-regulating core, allowing it to reach a higher level of organization. The goal is also to increase the body’s adaptability and re-define the cortical maps that correspond to different areas of the body—areas that may have gone “offline” from a sedentary or tension-filled lifestyle. One-time sessions can be helpful to clients, but traditional Rolfing® is done as the 10-Series, which is a 10-session approach to working with the entire body as a whole. Each session sets the groundwork for the next. More information on the 10-Series and Rolfing® in general can be found on the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute website: https://www.rolf.org/rolfing.php

MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE, 45 MINUTE $70, ADD ON $50, 10-SESSION PACKAGE $630 Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a gentle yet profoundly effective massage technique.

Relational Therapy (or Psychotherapy) provides a source of relief from emotional pain, self-worth issues, relationship problems and trauma.

Finding a safe space to share, be heard and understood frees up one’s energy to feel more present, focused and less reactive.
