You will understand what it means in Ayurveda about how you feel and how you act in life.
Healing starts with understanding. An understanding of yourself and the connection between that and the roots of your imbalances.With an Ayurveda Yoga Therapist, you can expect to have an overview of who you are based on Ayurveda wisdoms and how you can change to become healthier and happier.
Your body has messages to tell you about everything you need to know. All you need to do is to take a chance to open that space, whether on your own or with a trained therapist.
We’ll sit together for 1-1.5hrs to go over your:
- Your intention, chief concerns and goals
- Prakruiti (Innate Body Type)
- Vikruti (Current Imbalances – targeted dosha to treat)
- Agni (Digestive system) Type and Strengths
- Ama (Half digested wastes, meaning Toxins) level
- Your lifestyle and daily routine
- Your medical history and your chronic illness if any
- Examine your pulse, tongue, nails and eyes
Meeting April and receiving her services has been life changing for me! I was struggling with poor bowel issues and wanted to seek more natural remedies to heal. I’ve been an avid practitioner of yoga, and have heard about the incredible benefits of Ayurveda as a sister science. April was so kind to help me personalise a regimen that was unique to me – which I frankly really needed. Although there is general health advice out there, Ayurveda really focuses on one’s personal features and tailoring a specific remedy. April’s approach isn’t just about taking certain supplements but rather creating a way of life and routine that is most beneficial for the individual. I am so thankful to have encountered April for opening up a whole new world of the benefits of Ayurveda!nicole w. consultation with april during 2020-21, hong kong
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What is Ayurveda?
A: Ayurveda is a 5,000 years old, Indian and the oldest medical system documented in history. It is a pioneer and influencer to TCM and current Western medical system. Ayur = preservation of life, and Veda = wisdom. Ayurveda means “The Art of Longevity of Life.” Yoga, Ayurveda and Tantra form a triangle of spiritual, body and mind of harmony in true health accordingly to old Indian scriptures. Ayurveda is all about coming back to the Mother Earth, and with the knowing that we are all connected with every living being. Ayurveda focuses on 5 elements of Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth which result in 3 life principles of Vata Dosha, Pitta Dosha and Kapha Dosha. These components are everything that made of life, outside and inside us.
Q:What can I expect in my first Ayurveda personal consultation?
A: You will be guided through questions and conversations to go over your current imbalances, routine, diet, body type, digestive system, psychology, internal toxic level and targeted areas to treat. The initial session will last around 90 mins to really deep dive in who you are and how you live to find out the most appropriate/ natural way for your treatment based on Ayurveda. You will receive herbal supplement for immediate digestive issues when needed. You will also receive initial tips on your lifestyle changes (including routine, habits, exercise styles, meditation styles and so on) during the consultation. All the personal data and information will be kept highly confidential.
Q:What a follow-up Ayurveda holistic treatment would look like?
A: Once you have completed your first consultation, you’ll know what’s the most apparent imbalance dosha* to treat and work on. A treatment will focus on both your mind and body: a typical Vata imbalance treatment will include Pranayama (breathing) exercise, guided meditation, Ayurvedic Thai massage in targeted body part, led Ayurveda Yoga Therapy sequence and Reiki. A treatment will be around 60- 75 mins with a mix of modalities involved that’s designed only for you. It’s highly personalised and intent to be sustainable that you can also practice at home.
Q: What are the benefits of taking Ayurveda therapy and treatment compared to Western medicine?
A: Ayurveda is non-invasive. Ayurveda focuses on treating the root cause not the symptoms. The Ayurveda herbal supplements have very minimal side effects as they are sourced naturally. We provide a holistic way to help clients to live a healthier life. We also promote self-healing and self-empowerment as the herbal supplements will only work the best with a healthy change of lifestyle, habit and attitudes towards life. We empower our client to take back your power of your own health.
Q:What’s an ideal lead time (length) of an Ayurveda treatment to see the effect?
A: It depends on individual’s imbalances but ideally we’ll be checking-in once a week in the first start of the treatment for 4-8 week’s time.
*Dosha: Ether + Air = Vata Dosha, Fire + Water = Pitta Dosha, Earth + Water = Kapha Dosha, 3 different principle of life, different metabolism styles in the body and different tendencies that go out of whack – it is believed in Ayurveda that you are born with a certain dosha (or dual) type called Prikriti and the dosha can go out of imbalance due to external factors that’s called Virkuti, which is what we focus on when designing your treatments
