About Madison Ayurveda & Massage

 

Madison Ayurveda and Massage is owned by licensed massage therapist and certified ayurvedic practitioner Sabrina Henderson. She began studying complementary health modalities in 2003 when she attended New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe. While in Santa Fe, she studied with several master massage therapists in the following specializations: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Medical Massage, Trager, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Pregnancy Massage, Breast Massage, Ortho-bionomy, La Stone Therapy, Aromatherapy, and much more. After graduating massage school in 2004, she started practicing massage therapy in the Chicago land area, and then in 2005 made the move to Madison, WI.


Since 2005, Sabrina has worked with many of Madison's leading complementary health practitioners, including acupuncturists, naturopaths, chiropractors, colon hydrotherapists, thermographers, and body-workers. Sabrina specializes in the following massage modalities:

When Sabrina attended Puja Wellness' open house in 2008 and won a raffle for free ayurvedic services, it was a life changing moment. With that gift certificate, she received the most beautiful, nurturing, and healing ayurvedic treatments from Puja Wellness' owner Courtney Klick, and fell in love with Ayurveda.


In 2010 Sabrina pursued her interest in Ayurveda and moved to Albuquerque, NM to study at the Ayurvedic Institute with world-renowned ayurvedic doctor and teacher, Dr. Vasant Lad. Through Dr. Lad's compassionate, brilliant, and spiritual teaching, Sabrina has gained a wealth of traditional healing knowledge passed down from India's rishis over 5,000 years ago. While at the Ayurvedic Institute, Dr. Claudia Welch, D.S.O.M. and author of Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life, was another exceptional teacher that profoundly influenced Sabrina's love for Ayurveda.


In addition to her program at the Ayurvedic Institute, Sabrina studied how to balance women's hormones with diet, lifestyle, and exercise, Ayurvedic Spa & Beauty Techniques, Marma Chikitsa, and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology). There were too many influential and inspirational teachers at the Ayurvedic Institute to be mentioned here, and Sabrina is grateful for all of them. By carrying the torch of Ayurveda handed down to her with as much love, grace, and compassion as they have shown her, she is following her dharma and showing due reverence to her teachers.


Sabrina's philosophy on health is that just as everyone has a specific prakruti (bodily constitution), each individual benefits from having a diet, exercise regime, and daily routine that reflects their unique physical, emotional, and mental needs. What is good for one person may be detrimental to another. That is why Ayurveda gives us the analytical tools to decipher what would be most beneficial for the individual, instead of “one size fits all” generalized recommendations. Sabrina's ayurvedic consult will determine both your inherit bodily constitution and any imbalances, and what dietary or lifestyle changes can help bring you back into balance.
