I have a Christmas Present for you!
As we come to the close of the year and prepare for the next, we have the perfect moment to release what no longer serves us and set meaningful intentions for the year to come. Perhaps we have our eyes set on some profound goal of spiritual awakening, or perhaps we are just determined to break some bad habits and find a sustainable way to realise our optimal health. So, here is my gift. I would like to offer:
a 25% discount on Āyurvedic Consultations booked with me during the month of December**
Which means the 75min consultation will cost £60, saving you £20. Consultations can be held in person or via skype.
**Although bookings must be made within these dates to be eligable for the discount, the consultation itself does not necessarily have to be held within these dates. So, for example, you are welcome to arrange your consultation for anytime in January, or whenever convenient.
What is Āyurveda?
Āyurveda is an ancient system of life and longevity stemming back to the Vedic period in India. A holistic approach to wellness, Āyurveda (the “science of life”) aims to balance and harmonise the mind, body, senses and spirit, promoting longevity, connection to nature, and greater spiritual clarity. This scientific art that takes into account one’s entire situation, collecting data to make sense of why we do the things we do, or feel the way we feel.
Traditionally, āyurveda is woven into every aspect of one’s life, and is therefore considered a preventative, health sustaining medicinal art. Curative medicine, or the restoration of health from disease state, is the second prong of āyurvedic practice, and the two go hand in hand to ensure the smooth, organic functioning of our lives.
Contemporary life moves at such a pace that we often struggle to find the time to stop and reconnect. A by-product of this problem is finding ourselves run off our feet, out of touch with our bodies and emotions, witnessing our health dwindle.
Stress is the number one cause of disease in our society. This is hugely problematic in a society where stress is considered an inevitability of working life. As the body and mind try to keep up with the pressures placed upon them, we begin to notice small shifts as imbalances occur, sometimes resulting in minor physical discomforts, weakened digestion, or feelings of anxiety and depression. We are demanding on ourselves and often let these small messages from the body go unheard, and run the risk of destabilizing health even further, becoming susceptible to disease.
What does a consultation involve?
With the aim of recognizing the factors that are causing depletion and internal discord, I work with people to dig out the root cause of their feelings of dis-ease, be they physical or psychological. Using traditional treatments in a manner that is easy to incorporate into daily life, my aim is to guide people through a journey of healing and restoration. Rather than being a quick-fix, one-size-fits-all style of treatment, āyurveda works with nature and the body to establish long-lasting harmonious balance, strengthening the immune system, the physical, and the emotional body.
The one-on-one sessions aim to tackle any problems/discomforts (mental, emotional, or physical) that you may be experiencing with the goal of optimizing health. Whether you have a specific complaint, or you are just after some useful tips and practices to support a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, the ancient art of āyurveda seeks to restore balance and harmony in all aspects of life.
What to expectDuring an initial 75-minute consultation, I will employ various traditional practices to make a detailed assessment of your general health, medical history, and diet and lifestyle, in order to determine your natural bodily constitution (prakruti). Inquiries will be made into your current symptomology (vikruti). Through discussion, pulse analysis, tongue diagnosis and other practices, the causes of imbalance that may be impacting or altering quality of life are rooted out. Together a treatment plan consisting of diet, lifestyle, and herbal remedies will be drawn up. I will help you to construct a regime that is both realistic, and affordable, to suit your current needs. By the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of the diet and lifestyle practices that support your constitution and restore wellbeing, through detoxification, strengthening the digestive fire (agni), increasing energy, and promoting calmness.
No two people are the same, so there is no one-size-fits-all perfect diet or health regimen to follow. But by working together through a consultation we can establish what is ideal for YOU.
