Ayurveda Treatments

 

Ayurveda is a holistic, or ‘whole body’, medical system that has been around for thousands of years, yet is still
incredibly relevant today. Literally meaning ‘the science of life’, it seeks to restore and maintain balance within
our minds and bodies, allowing us to live to our full potential in a state of True Health.
Conventional medicine has a tendency to treat the symptom, not the root cause, and often fails to see each
person as an individual. But we are all more than just our physical bodies; we are a complete mind/body system
that works in harmony with nature and this lies at the root of Ayurvedic healing.
The principles of Ayurveda recognise that there are 3 biophysical forces that exist within each of us and
throughout nature. These are Vata (air and space), Pitta (fire and water) and Kapha (water and earth) and it is the
combination of these 3 forces within us which provide us with our unique characteristics and body type, or
Dosha. This natural dosha, or prakriti, can however become unbalanced through factors such as lifestyle, diet
and environment, and this puts the individual into a new, unbalanced body type, or vikriti.
Through diagnosing this imbalance, and focusing on the root cause rather than the symptom, this sophisticated
medical system aims to restore the individual back to their original Dosha, and back to a state of True Health
through a combination of herbs, massage, yoga, detox and lifestyle management.
Although Ayurveda is able to treat and alleviate the many mental and physical problems we face today, its main
aim is to maintain balance and therefore prevent any illness from entering the body in the first place.
During a consultation you will be asked a variety of questions in order to build up a highly accurate picture of
you as an individual and your health. Everything that is discussed is completely confidential and will not be
discussed with anyone else without your permission.
After this part of the consultation, tongue and pulse diagnosis will be carried out to complete the picture. You
will then be offered suggestions which may include dietary changes, herbal supplements, massages, lifestyle
changes etc. Any follow up consultations are usually 30 minutes.
