The Five Pathways

Your Ayurvedic treatment offers a personalised approach to health through five traditional pathways, namely, lifestyle, diet, yoga, herbs and therapies. During your initial consultation you will gain deeper insights into your current lifestyle, diet, health concerns and sleep patterns.The session will include your medical history, how you are feeling about your health, along with your aims and objectives so that together we can form a plan to create the life that you desire.


Ayurveda provides a supportive role to medical treatment rather than an alternative and can help to understand how our diet and lifestyle affect our health on many levels. If you are already under medical care, you may be advised to consult your doctor before continuing with some of the recommendations. As holistic health practitioners, we will not attempt to diagnose or treat any medical condition, but will refer you to the GP if necessary.

The Fundamental principles


Creating the perfect way to start your day according to the principals of Ayurveda will have a huge impact on your life. Dinacharya is a specific routine of cleansing the body inside and out to remove ama – the toxins that are responsible for many health conditions from colds to more chronic and serious illnesses.

Adapting to the seasons

We may be aware of how the seasons are affecting us either positively or in a way that creates challenges. For example a pitta dosha will naturally increase during the summer, sometimes causing heat rashes or other skin conditions. During the winter, we will experiences the effects of colder, wetter weather and need to adapt to these through change of diet and lifestyle.
