Appointments on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays are in Saint Paul. To see Saint Paul appointments, the location should be Essence Ayurveda. Appointments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are at the Minnesota Clinic for Health and Wellness in New Brighton, MN. To check or change the location, click on the Change Location button.

If you have any questions, need an appointment outside of regular hours, or don't see an appointment time that works for you, please contact Susan at 612.208.6289 or susan@essenceayurveda.com. She sometimes can be more flexible than the online scheduling program allows, so please don't hesitate to contact her directly if you don't find a time online that works for you.

If you aren't sure which service best fits your needs, please don't hesitate to contact Susan.

Online appointments will be by Google Meet unless you request a different method. Susan will send a meeting link, which should work in any browser or in the Google Meet app. In-person appointments in Saint Paul are at 881 Lincoln Ave., Saint Paul, 55105. Please see Contact Us for a map and parking information.

You will receive an email from the scheduling system confirming your appointment and a reminder email 48 hours before the appointment. Those emails contain information important for your appointment. Please carefully review the emails. New clients also may receive an additional email with forms that need to be completed at the first visit. Please fill out the forms and either email them to Susan or bring them with you to the appointment, to avoid spending appointment time filling out the forms. If this is a concern or poses any difficulty, please let Susan know so that accommodations can be made. For your convenience, links to the forms are below:

-
New Client Registration Form (for all new clients)
-
Ayurveda Intake Form (for all initial Ayurveda consultations)
-
Essence Session Form (for all initial Thai massage appointments)
