ONLINE WELLNESS CONSULTATIONS
World events have changed the way we interact with each other and have lead us to rely on technology. We may find it impersonal at first but there are many benefits, including being an essential part of staying connected. My practice has always been based on developing strong connections with my patients to guide them to navigate through life's challenges with ease and confidence. Stepping into this new era of using technology to support my patients has proved to have many benefits.
My philosophy is to work with you to empower you to take the appropriate actions that will improve your quality of life. I will guide you only once I understand your true nature and look at what has caused the imbalance. Join me on a journey of self-discovery and be inspired to embrace self-nurturing practices by following ancient rituals specific to your constitution. These online consultations are an avenue towards guiding you towards RESTORING BALANCE PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY to elevate your vitality, clarity and courage to live the life you love.
The aim of the initial consultation is to identify the cause of your imbalance and your health goals. I use the Ayurvedic approach to identifying your constitution (Prakriti) and imbalance (Vikriti) and gather information about your past and current presenting complaint. I may request pathology test from you or have test kits sent directly to you or recommend hair mineral analysis if necessary. The Ayurvedic approach confirms the flow of your disorder and determines what tissues, organs and systems are compromised prior to providing you with the tools to activate your healing power within and restore your natural state of health.
Step 1 - Getting to know you and listening to your story.
Step 2 - Identifying your constitution and your view of the world.
Step 3 - Find your imbalances and the cause.
Step 4 - Start on your wellness journey
This is a short introductory consultation, an informal chat online to identify your needs and if this is the right avenue for you. Referral and recommendations will be offered to you if necessary.
Complete wellness takes time, forming new habits take time. I am here to guide you to takes the right steps towards your desired outcome and support you through the challenging times.
Live the life you love
Massage is an important part of the total healing process. Ayurvedic massage works on the individual constitution by using specific warm medicated oils prepared in a traditional manner which retain the energetic properties of the plants selected. The techniques used during the massage are specially chosen to balance the prominent elements in your body at the time of the treatment. This is a rejuvenating massage which encourages the excretion of toxins, improves flexibility, calms the mind and nourishes all tissues of the body by opening the flow of prana or life force in the body.
Note: It is not advisable to have this treatment if you are menstruating or suffer from acute illness ( including colds ), fever or diarrhoea.
This is a deeply effective therapy involving the pouring of warm medicated herbal oil onto the forehead (the third eye, ajna chakra) followed by Indian head massage. It is effective for anyone having difficulty coping with stress, anxiety and nervousness as well as improving concentration and insomnia. It also has beneficial outcomes for depression, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, high blood pressure, migraines, chronic headaches and psychosomatic disorders. Shirodhara has a profound affect on the nervous system, bringing about of surrendering to experience calmness and peace within.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage is a very gentle treatment to improve the natural flow of the lymphatic system. This treatment is ideal in supporting the immune system to detoxify the body by stimulating the lymph nodes and removing waste. Lymphatic drainage is ideal for a Kapha body type, who may be retaining fluid, feeling sluggish, experience recurrent infections, and weight gain. It has also been beneficial for those with chronic fatigue and those with injuries.
Reflexology is an effective way to promote wellness by stimulating points on the feet that relate to energy channels of the entire body. This is a firm, yet gentle application of pressure on the feet in a sequence that evokes a sense of deep relaxation. It is beneficial to release stress, improve the function of specific organs and improve circulation. Reflexology works on the overall health, improving vitality, releasing tension, improves sleep and stimulate nerve function.
