What Clients Say

Finally Losing Weight

For over 25 years I have struggled with weight loss after my diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I’ve tried many things including traditional dieting, intermittent fasting, elimination diets and fads with little and mostly no success. I was resigned to be content with my current size as my family doctor gives me a great bill of health and I have an active lifestyle. I can’t believe the success I have had working with Jennifer! Within the first month I lost 10 pounds! I would never have tried the diet or lifestyle plans that she created for me. Thank you so much! I now feel like I have control over my physical self. Jennifer is very knowledgeable and most importantly kind. She genuinely cares about others and it shows in her generosity and follow up.” – V.R., Business Analyst

Now Thinking Clearly

“I had severe GI issues, chronic fatigue, and brain fog. I had a difficult time getting through the day and struggled at work to think clearly and make decisions. Since working with Jennifer, my GI symptoms are much improved and my brain fog is gone. Overall, I am feeling like a different person. Jennifer was kind and gentle when I was not feeling well. She gave me meaningful and effective changes that worked. Using the app was easy and it was wonderful to have answers to my questions so quickly. This was a great experience.” – P.C., Public Health

Low Back Pain Gone

“Rolfing eliminated my low back pain entirely. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in transformative bodywork. Eric is a skilled and safe bodyworker.” – Alex

Muscle Spasms Released

I struggled to walk or sit comfortably. Rolfing completely released the painful muscle spasms and gave me back my flexibility and a pain-free life. I never would have imagined I could feel this kind of ease in my body again.” – Crystal

She developed a directory website for Ayurvedic practitioners, then became Senior Manager of U.S. Operations for an Ayurveda products company. She studied classical Ayurveda at AYU Academy and is a Svastha Acarya (Teacher of Health). Currently, she is completing her education in the Samudra Ayurvedic Physicians Program.

“Once I found classical Ayurveda, my health really soared. It made me realize how misguided my understanding of Ayurveda was in my younger days. Ayurveda as it’s practiced in India is now making its way into the U.S. I hope to help others understand just how profound Ayurveda really is, so they don’t have to fumble their way around it like I did,” – Jennifer Maklan

What is Āyurveda?

Āyurveda is India's traditional medical system. It is a holistic approach that uses temporary dietary adjustments, lifestyle recommendations, therapeutic treatments and cleanses to restore health. It is also preventative in nature. Health must be cultivated and created each day. Āyurveda offers a wealth of sound knowledge to maintain health throughout every season and every stage of life.

I've tried changing my diet and lifestyle and it didn't work. How is Āyurveda different?

Āyurveda is a complete holistic health system. Āyurvedic herbo-mineral formulations are selected for you based on your state of health. Formulations along with appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle ensure that you get back to your natural state of health. Improved health cannot happen without changing your diet and lifestyle.

Is Āyurveda a licensed profession?

Āyurveda is not a licensed profession in the U.S. That being said, when selecting an Āyurvedic Practitioner, it's important to choose someone that is practicing classical Āyurveda. Classical Āyurveda adheres to the framework as it is taught and practiced in India.

Jennifer Maklan, ĀP, practices classical Āyurveda and has trained in programs that exceed educational standards for Āyurveda in the U.S.

How is Āyurveda practiced online? Isn't pulse assessment needed?

Āyurveda is quite conducive to online practice. In classical Āyurvedic assessment, questioning and visual clues provide a wealth of information. Pulse assessment is actually a somewhat modern addition to classical assessment methods. It is not a necessary component for a quality assessment. 

How is Āyurveda different than other holistic healing methods?

Āyurveda is time-tested. It's speculated to be thousands of years old and probably the oldest health system known to man. Though much has changed, the classical practice of Āyurveda holds to the time-tested methods that existed thousands of years ago.

Unlike other modern approaches to holistic medicine, Āyurveda utilizes a detailed framework for the measurement, assessment and management of health. It is an extensive practice that is studied rigorously and is effective when applied with precision.

Unlike Western approaches to care, Āyurveda is personalized to each individual. Your day, diet, health history and so much more are taken into consideration to create your Care Plan.
