Ayurvedic consultations  Most westerners are familiar with visiting a healthcare provider when they feel ill. The provider diagnoses the sickness and determines which pathogens, such as bacteria or virus, caused it. The treatment is then geared toward selecting a technique to battle those pathogens. The same medicines, procedures, and doses are often used for multiple people battling the same illness.  An Ayurvedic diagnosis, and subsequent treatments, differ from this Western process in that the diagnosis is made not only on the disease level, but also on the patient level.  The consultation helps the Ayurvedic practitioner not only diagnose any disorders, but individualize or tailor treatments for each patient. To make a diagnosis, Ayurvedic practitioners combine disease analysis with deep examination of each individual.  So instead of focusing on a treatment or medicine to heal the illness, the Ayurvedic practitioner concentrates on the techniques that will strengthen the healthy elements inherent in every body, which will in turn help the individual to recover. Treatments and medicines are a vital part of this process, but act only to support the body’s self-reparation, rather than cause it. Ayurveda is a preventative science, so you do not have to wait until you get sick to have an ayurvedic consultation, prevention is better than cure.  Bhagavatamita will help guide you on your journey towards health and happiness, an adventure where you can turn over a new leaf and attain an amazing sense of well-being and mental harmony.

What can I expect in the consultation?  An initial consultation takes between 60 – 90 minutes and will cover all aspects of your life.  Be prepared to talk about yourself, including questions about daily diet, profession and working conditions, exercise routines, relationships, and mental health.  This thorough intake process helps Bhagavatamrita identify key symptoms and potential causes of imbalance and determine suitable treatment options.

Marma Massage is a deeply relaxing and powerful treatment which focuses on 107 vital energy points on the body. These points are significant both on a physical and energetic level. When these marma points become blocked, vital life-force energy – or prana – cannot flow and we start to feel exhausted, out of balance and will eventually become unwell.  Conversely when the marma points are massaged and stimulated correctly the entire body and all its organs are flooded with energy.  We become deeply nourished on a cellular and energetic level. We again feel calm and clear – emotionally and physically. Marma massage increases immunity, improves flexibility and strength, reduces toxicity, improves digestion and circulation and promotes a positive mental and emotional state, it is also famous throughout the east for slowing down the ageing process.
