What is Ayurveda? The time-proven holistic medical system of India, also known as the science of longevity and self-healing. “Disease is not spontaneously procured; it is always produced. It is acquired by a lifestyle that is not aligned with the laws of nature. Disease is not a question of exposure. It is the status of the individual’s inner ecology and immunity that gives rise to the vulnerability of contracting disease. If an external pathogen such as virus yeast, parasite and bacteria invade the body, the impact on our health will be minimal unless our inner ecology has become toxic, acidic, weakened, or congested. By applying the principles of the ancient, evidence-based, holistic science of Ayurveda to our daily modern living, the human condition will be supported by the laws of nature effortlessly. Registered Ayurvedic Health Counselors are trained to create the space and provide the tools for people to heal the body, mind and spirit by making simply daily choices based on your unique body type. More education, more meditation and less medication.” —Karyn Chabot, M. Ay, LMT, RYT

Study Online To Become An Ayurvedic Bodywork Specialist
Online ABS Course Description: Our curriculum and e-dvds were designed to instruct students how to become proficient as a “hands-on healer” using the ancient wisdom of ayurvedic healing, shamanic principles, energy medicine and touch therapy systems to help remedy the stress of today’s world. Students will learn the foundations of medical Ayurveda, how to access and classify pain, find specific pain remedies, specific applications of oils, poultices, thermo and hydrotherapy, healing muds/pastes, marma pressure points, herbal potions and the anointing of other therapeutic substances on the body. Students will learn how to harmonize bodywork modalities with the seasons, doshic diet and routine protocols, using neutral, safe and innocuous oils, energy medicine, intuitive awakening of the soul’s innate healing gifts, therapeutic applications and pastes as well as be able to demonstrate proficiency using hands-on techniques. The material in this manual is rooted in the ancient healing modalities of ‘pancha karma’, a Sanskrit word referring to India’s ancient purification and rejuvenation system. Students will uncover modified, yet sacred and powerful versions of this ancient system. The scope of practice that this impressed upon the reader is geared for the “general” population, where the disease process has not advanced past the 4th stage. Clinical pancha karma should be performed with or by a doctor and is a very medically effective, time-proven approach that transforms the human physiology.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest hers/his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease” —Thomas Edison
This course was not designed for diagnostics, pulse analysis, or the replacement of a licensed massage therapy program or the allopathic medical profession, but instead, designed for harmonious integration into many indigenous and traditional medical systems. It helps if students have a massage license prior to enrolling in this course, but is not a prerequisite for this course. Though it may be a prerequisite at the “state level”, for legal reasons, if graduates intend to charge for the services outlined in this book. We recommend learning rules in the particular state in which you reside or wish to practice regarding the legality of professional massage therapy, as each state is different. Some states allow for spiritual touch healing with an online minister’s license. Shirodhara Therapy can be done, with some exceptions, without massaging the body. Therefore, it may one of the therapies that would fall under the category of spiritual touch healing, not requiring a license. Each state will have a different name and description for such categories as well.

“Where to start? I visited Karyn for my Ayurveda and astrology reading and I was overall blown away. I begin medical school shortly and have been working in a hospital setting for the past 2 years so I find myself well education when it comes to the body. Karyn taught me so much about myself in only an hour. She also read my birth chart and was absolutely spot on. She asked me questions about my life that no one could know without me telling them. Karyn is extremely insightful and gives off an amazing vibe.” —Austin Rutkowski
“Karyn was amazing! She was able to interpret the cards and astrology accurately and with extensive detail. I asked about 3 areas of insight: relationships, health and litigation. After determining my birth card as a 2 of hearts, her insight continued to astound me. Not only did she assess my relationships correctly, she accurately interpreted a recent prostate issue with a statement, “Challenges with male reproductive tissues this year.”. I WAS BLOWN AWAY. I haven’t told anyone about my prostate. I look forward to another reading with this gifted woman.” —Michael L
“I have NEVER received a reading as in depth and spot on as the one I had with Karyn Give yourself plenty of time – schedule 1.5 or 2 hours because you will need it. Karyn covers an impressive amount of material and allows time for questions. The reading was amazing and I left feeling something that I have not felt in a long time….hope. A reading with Karyn is an investment in creating a dynamic, soul driven, purpose filled life!” —Kristen Casey
