Back2health - Ayurvedic Medicine
Consultation & Pulse Reading
Your first Ayurvedic consultation will involve us gaining an understanding of your medical history and any current health conditions you may be experiencing. Our skilled practitioner will use an ancient Ayurvedic pulse reading technique to diagnose your mind/body constitution.
From this initial consultation the functionality of your organs will be determined, as well as the balance of your doshas, which will indicate any warning signs of potential ill-health. One of the principles of Ayurveda is prevention, which is made possible by dealing with any imbalances before they deteriorate into a more serious condition.
Once your current state of health is diagnosed, your practitioner will then design a wellness plan specific to your individual needs. Your plan will include a combination of diet, herbs, home remedies, body treatments and exercise with the aim of treating sources of disease and imbalance.
Ayurvedic Health Screenings
We also offer health screenings for busy people who don't have time for extended consultations. This half-hour consultation will provide you with an in-depth assessment of your current state of health, allowing us to provide you with a plan tailored to meet your needs.
