"When you walk through the door into Ivy’s treatment room, you cross a threshold into another world where sacred music plays, incense scents the air, Ganesha presides and herbs and tinctures await. My three-day treatment on Ivy’s table was as warm and sweaty as a Kerala evening with heated oils massaged and dark pastes scrubbed and steamed into my parched skin. Shirodara treatment soothed and opened my mind. By the third day of Panchakarma, my sinuses were clear, my colon flushed, and my skin juicy. Insights came so quickly that I couldn’t articulate them. But afterwards, in the sanctuary of my home, in the private space of my journal, I remembered lucidly what I had learned under Ivy’s competent and healing hands: I am a creative being, my body this divine gift."

"Thank you, Ivy and Veda, for my amazing immersion into Panchakarma … the best 7 intentionally restorative days of my life. I felt heard and healed and touched on every level of my being. So profound!
I will carry what I learned and what I felt during my time with you, in my soul's heart for many years to come! Anyone contemplating PK will, I hope, find you and allow themselves to be nurtured into releasing or embracing what is meant to be..."

"I just completed a 7-day Panchakarma with Ivy and her assistant Veda. After years of digestive issues due to Celiac disease, I was nervous about doing a detox of such magnitude. As it turns out , this experience was not only detoxifying, but completely nourishing. Every step of the way I felt nurtured and completely safe due to Ivy's vast knowledge of Ayurveda and her skillful way of working with the process. She tailors each session to the individual and what they might need that particular day. I feel clean inside and refreshed at a deep level which seems to be showing on the outside as my friends keep saying I am glowing. I truly feel like the aging process has reversed in these seven days with Ivy. Don't miss this opportunity, you will not regret it."

"In today's world it is so rare to come across authenticity - but come across it I did in Sante Fe, NM. When I asked Amadea Morningstar if she knew of anyone in Santa Fe that could give me an abhyanga, shiro and possibly a kati basti, she said without hesitation, 'Try Ivy. You will love her' Hence, I arrived at Ivy's doorstep quite certain that I was in good hands for the next few hours. That is the understatement of the year. Ivy is delightful in every way; steeped in knowledge of and history with Ayurveda; a true healer in every sense of the word. My body is still rejoicing! How I wish I lived closer to Sante Fe!! I send immense and deep gratitude. Shanti, Shanti"

"The wonderful hot oil massage and steam treatment you gave me was unlike any massage I've ever gotten, it calmed me and relaxed every muscle in my entire body. I felt like it might have been one thousand years ago and I was in India. I spent the rest of the day enjoying my new altered state of calmness free of tension."
Jeri McAndrews, Tuscon, AZ
"My awesome Bliss Rejuvenation session was the best treatment I've ever had. Everyone should experience this. I've had three and will be back for more."
Wendy Montoya, Santa Fe, NM
"Working with Ivy Amar for several years doing Panchakarma, I consider it one of the most beautiful and spiritual practices that I have given myself year after year....I quickly realized I was in the hands of a consummate professional...the Panchakarma treatments are profoundly relaxing, healing, health promoting, safe feeling and luxurious all at once....Time expands while you’re on the table as Ivy tailors the treatment to what you need and where your body is now...I literally heard myself say “I feel holy and anointed”....With the deepest respect, I give my highest and unreserved appreciation to Ivy and to the way in which she treats me, my body, my mind and my soul, all at once."
Wendy Yellen, Santa Fe NM
"Panchakarma with Ivy was heavenly. I don’t use that word lightly. I’ve received PK before, but never with this level of attentiveness, nurturing and care. I also noticed my third eye was shiny and very smooth.
Each day I sank deeper into peace, joy and exhuberant bliss. Thanks again for the amazing TLC "
Meryl, Cascade, CO
"Today I have an 80-90% improvement overall! Played cello for an hour, twice! I continue to tell folks, "Ivy is the real deal". When folks start signing up for PK, they'll see it's so much more than detox and balancing - it's about soul."
Suzanne, DOM, NY
"After 2 weeks of Pancha Karma I feel profoundly nourished on all levels.The Ivy - Veda team are 2 highly trained caring professional therapists who are fully dedicated to this work. Suffering from a combination of common ailments, like depletion, stress and exhaustion, it was transformative to experience the healing provided by the Ancient System of Ayurveda. Thank you! Ayurveda for Radiant Health is one of Santa Fe’s best kept secrets."
Stina, Santa Fe, NM
"Thank you and Veda for a fantastic week! I was on a video conference with a client yesterday and she commented that I was 'glowing'. Ah, yes, I am inside and out. My family commented how well I look and that you had given me a special blessing - the bindi! I wore it the rest of the evening and loved it...I certainly met my intention to 'reset'. It feels wonderful as it ended up being a consciousness reset."
Pamela F., Business Consultant, Colorado
"I can't thank you enough for all the healing, wisdom, loving care and nurturing you have given me. This has been an amazing experience on many levels and I look forward to coming back."
Malika Healey, Santa Fe, NM
"There were moments on the table where I felt transported to ancient times and other dimensions of consciousness. My body, mind and spirit began to deeply relax and heal. The effects were cumulative, profound and lasting. I had the inner strength and energy in the weeks that followed to pick up my life in new and creative ways. As far as I’m concerned, Ivy Amar offers the best healing experience in town."
Uma Markus, Santa Fe, NM
"I was a bit apprehensive about certain aspects of it. Ivy laid my nervousness to rest the moment I met her. Her aptitude and ability to engage with her clients were obvious the very first day. She's gentle, reassuring, calm, knowledgeable, and so very caring. I looked forward to the daily treatments, each one being a little bit different than the rest, and I left in much better shape than I arrived. I felt happier, rejuvenated, and more informed on how to care for my body and soul. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience what Ivy offers. I intend to again and again."
Sally Hancock Ruport, Colorado Springs, CO
"The raindrop therapy treatment was the most beautiful healing massage I have every experienced. The combination of Ivy's skill with the ancient art of Ayurvedic massage, specific aromas for deep cleansing and her very loving presence was profoundly healing. I felt a physical release going on for days afterwards. While I was on the table I wished that everyone I loved could experience this treatment!"
Faye Fields, Newberg, OR
"The Ayurvedic massage with Ivy was the best I have ever had in either India or the US. Ivy brought a beautiful, loving awareness and had a deep understanding of how her movements and her energy were affecting me on the table. That focused awareness of connectedness is deeply healing. The massage was combined with Raindrop Therapy - applying essential oils along the spine and sweeping them artfully into the skin. I was impacted for days and possibly weeks by this combination of healing treatments."
Juanita Crampton, Newberg, OR
"When Ivy began the marma treatment, at first I was skeptical that it would have much effect. However, within a minute or two, my nervous system began to calm substantially, and as she continued, I entered a deep state of relaxation, with reduced thought activity. At the end of the treatment, there was very little thought and there was a clear vision of a small amrit kalash container. It was very peaceful."
"The subtle Marma treatments touched me at the deepest levels of my being. Ivy sang the chants with such tenderness and devotion that they continued to resonate and echo for days afterward. This is surely one of the most profound of the Panchakarma protocols!"
Carole Tashel, Santa Fe, NM
"It is almost impossible to find words to describe the effects of the Bliss Rejuvenation treatment, other than to say that after only a few minutes I sank into profound relaxation, reminiscent of a deep state of meditation. I have never experienced such loving attention, skillful bodywork, and heavenly fragrances all at once- all that in the magical sanctuary of her treatment room, with soft Goddess chants playing in the background....Ivy Amar is a supremely gifted healer, who has developed her modality into a rare and sublime art form."
Taj Ali, Santa Fe, NM
"Absolutely the best PK I’ve ever experienced! Your sattvic nature and environment make all the difference in the world."
