Ileana Sutter

Ileana began her professional career in 1984 as a chemical engineer in Romania. After 10 years, she decided to follow a desire that was becoming more and more urgent in her life - to serve people in maintaining and regaining their health and well being. Training first as a massage therapist and esthetician in Austria, Ileana had a successful private practice in Vienna beginning in 1996. She initially chose Shiatsu because of her deep interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and trained for more than three years during which she gained new perspectives on life and healing. Ileana continued to add to her knowledge by learning and practicing several different massage modalities and skin care regimens. She moved to the United States in August, 2003 and began studying Ayurvedic medicine in 2004, at first participating in various seminars and workshops held in the US and Canada.

The Healing Temple now opened its doors in California!

Posted in: Ayurveda

The Healing Temple has moved to the bay area in beautiful Menlo Park, CA!

It is with much joy and gratitude that I made this recent move to CA in order to be closer to the Kerala Academy of Ayurveda where I have just embarked on a new journey of going through the Doctor of Ayurveda Program. It will take two and a half years of phenomenal teachings, internships in the US and India, consultations, hands on work and preparing the final dissertation.

Along with studying, I will continue to serve my new community being in private practice at The Healing Temple. I feel so lucky and grateful to Dr. Bill Tarr and his team at Peak Performance Chiropractic here in Menlo Park, CA, as they received me with open arms and are giving me a chance to establish my practice within theirs.

There is a lot to look forward to and to be grateful for!

On this note, I am sharing with you a recipe for a very yummy desert/snack from the vast Ayurvedic Healing Cuisine. So, here it is, the very basic Ojas Balls


5 large Majool dates, pitted

2-3 Tbs almond butter

3 tsp cultured ghee

1 handful of any of the following: cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecans or roasted sunflower seeds

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

1/4 tsp cardamom powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp almond extract

1/4 cup granola ( please use a low sugar one with very few ingredients)


Blend the granola, spices, extracts and the nuts until the granola is almost like flour and the nuts are chunky.

Chop the dates in small pieces. Add the almond butter and the ghee to the granola mixture. Using your hands, combine all ingredients as if kneading cookie dough.

If the mixture is too dry, add more ghee. If it is too wet, add more granola.

Turn the mix into individual balls. Place them in a glass container/jar and chill for 1 hour.

Before serving, let them get to room temperature and enjoy with your favorite tea or as a snack!

The Healing Temple has MOVED to Colorado!

First and foremost — thank you to all of the wonderful people who allowed me to practice the profession I love, and thank you for supporting me and helping me to stay in this business for the past 14 years I have lived and worked in Frederick, Md.
