LifeSpa is the premier center for natural health and Ayurveda in the United States. It was started in 1994 by Dr. John Douillard DC as a small Ayurvedic clinic and spa. Today, LifeSpa has grown to host a robust online store and educational database as well as a booming clinic, spa and cleansing center. We are located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in sunny Boulder, CO.
We’re here to help you heal. To empower you to face the physical challenges and emotional stresses that we all deal with on a daily basis equipped with personalized Ayurvedic strategies that work.
According to this ancient system of medicine, a personalized lifestyle routine and herbal regimen are some of the most powerful tools you can have to navigate health concerns, which are a compounding of lasting imbalance over time. We begin by diving into the underlying imbalances of your body type, listening deeply to your health history and concerns, and emerge with a customized Ayurvedic protocol suited to target the root cause of imbalance. Best of all, we teach you how to integrate this new protocol into your life so that it becomes seamless and sustainable for you.
We don’t bury our recommendations under the tricky Sanskrit jargon often associated with Ayurveda, we try to make it as simple as possible for you.
Not local? No worries, nearly 50% of our clients hold consultations over the phone.
Panchakarma Detox Retreats
Join us at our retreat center in Boulder, CO for a truly transformational detoxification program.
What it is: Panchakarma is a series of detoxifying, balancing, and nourishing therapies performed over a series of 3, 5, 7 or more days. Panchakarma is not just a detox program. This is only its side benefit. It is a Transformation in Consciousness and the goal is to replace stress with silence.
During your Panchakarma you will receive Ayurvedic spa treatments every day with one or two therapists. You will also meet privately with Dr. Douillard regularly to unravel old emotions, beliefs, habits, and patterns that contribute to the stress which is typically the under-lying cause of most disease.
Each day during your free time you will enjoy a customized practice of rejuvenative yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation and self-inquiry, along with a special cleansing diet and herbal support. We will send you home with a maintenance plan of herbs, yoga routines, dietary recommendations and stress relief techniques all tailored to your unique needs and goals.
Ayurvedic Boutique and Herbal Shop
