Marianne Nishifue – Ayurvedic Medicine and Massage

What is Ayurvedic Medicine?

Ayurvedic Medicine (also know as Ayurveda) was developed thousands of years ago in India and is still one of the country’s primary holistic systems of medicine today.

The term “Ayurveda” combines the Sanskrit words Ayur (life) and Veda (science or knowledge). Ayurvedic medicine promotes the use of herbal compounds, special diets, aromatherapy, and other unique health practices to balance mind, body, and spirit to stimulate good health and fight disease.

Through the intelligence of plants, minerals, color, sound, touch, and the body’s innate healing ability to restore balance, Marianne Nishifue helps patients attain balance in all aspects of life.

She creates custom blends of organic plant and mineral compounds, essential oils, and flower essences to create medicinal herbal formulas for common ailments.

Marianne also creates custom blends of organic plants and minerals for facial creams, serums, and skin nourishing moisturizers. She offers “Face Bliss Therapy” to help clients achieve a natural healthy glow.

Marianne provides ayurvedic massage and Marma Balance (Ayurvedic Acupressure) to help patients achieve fulfilling and rejuvenating body alignment.


Marianne says of her work:

My vibrational healing background is diverse and eclectic. I’m a certified massage therapist and have achieved a fundamental knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine principals from Jai Dev of Medicine Crow. I incorporated acupressure and marma point balance to my skills. I furthered my understanding of plants and received an ayurvedic aromatherapy certification with David Crow and Jade Shutes of Floracopeia. In April 2012 I received my international massage certification for equines and canines from the Equissage School of sports massage. My degree in psychology has supported my ability to listen and assist other’s finding their voice and way to equilibrium.

All of my therapies compliment, support and never replace your medical or doctor care.   Each session is created to address your imbalance and desired intention.   Your balanced attunement will be achieved by the natural frequencies of touch, sound, color, flower essences, aromatherapy and mindful dialog.
