What happens at an Ayurveda consultation?
A consultation is an assessment of your current health (physical, mental, emotional) and past medical history. The aim is to find balance and develop awareness and connection to our true individual needs.
So when you visit an Ayurvedic practitioner, be prepared to talk about yourself! Because Ayurveda emphasizes balance in all areas of your life, a consultation will involve taking an extensive personal and medical history, including questions about your daily life such as diet, working conditions, exercise routines, relationships and emotional well-being.
At the consultation pulse and tongue diagnosis will determine the clients individual Prakriti (unique constitution) and Vikriti (current imbalance) This process helps the practitioner identify the symptoms and potential causes of imbalance and determine a suitable therapy plan.
From here we create a unique plan of a daily routine, yoga and breathing exercises, we also look at nutrition with individualised diet advice, and, if needed, herbal remedies and Ayurvedic massage recommendations.
I draw on my experience as an Ayurvedic consultant and therapist, as well as my Yoga teaching t provide a tailored plan that will help you achieve an ideal balance. The initial consultation will last around 60 mins long, with a short follow-up appointment of 30 minutes a week later, then usually there will be an additional follow-up 4 weeks later.
