(Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). The sister science of yoga, Ayurveda is a 4,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India, it is a science of life which reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
What is Ayurveda?
An Ayurvedic diet & lifestyle consultation gives you the opportunity to access Ayurvedic techniques to stay on top of your health to reduce any symptoms of dietary intolerance, allergies or even as an antidote to weight management. Diet and lifestyle advice is interwoven into your feedback after an in-depth consultation to help cultivate optimum VITALITY and well-being.
Who is Ayurveda for?
Ayurveda is for ALL, whether you are male, female, young or old Ayurveda can help. Working with a long list of clients with varying aliments and medical conditions, here are just some of the conditions listed below;
What to expect...
You will arrive to a welcoming and private space, you will first be offered a drink before we settle in with a herbal tea and a chat. You will be asked a series of questions relating to your health, lifestyle and well-being. This is the most important part of building your therapy plan, please know that your disclosure is welcomed but not forced and that you can have confidence that anything mentioned is treated professionally and respectfully and kept confidential and secure.
From this initial consultation I will tailor the session to meet your needs and share Ayurvedic/yogic remedies and techniques to help resolve the presenting issue/s in order to help support and guide you towards optimal vitality. There is not a ‘one-fix-all’ approach to healing so with this in mind the focus is to meet your needs and to individually personalise your experience.
Do I need to stop medications and doctor visits?
The ayurvedic therapy plan shared can antidote and support or balance any side effects of the drugs you may be already be taking and lower the amount of medication you take via the guidance of your doctor. You are encouraged to work along side your general practioner’s guidance, it is not advised to suddenly stop taking medication without the help and guidance of your doctor. Ayurveda helps to empower the individual to take control of their own healing, to spot the signs of a relapse before it happens and replace the need to reach for a higher dose of medication with an alternative approach.
How many sessions will I need?
After your first initial 90 minute consultation you will immediately be given techniques and guidance to start you off on your journey of healing.
A follow-up session is required for you to receive your full, detailed feedback, in this follow up session your therapy plan will be explained clearly and in detail to you so that the information is understood and the therapy plan is correctly utilised so that you can benefit fully.
Each person is unique in their process, after your follow-up session you may feel you do not need any further guidance, however, some clients find further follow ups beneficial.
