If you are suffering symptoms of poor health, or you know you have a condition that impedes your optimal wellbeing, an ayurvedic consultation can diagnose where you are out-of-balance, and offer advice and treatments designed to bring you back to optimal health.
Even if you are not sick, and are already enjoying good health, an ayurvedic consultation can be enormously beneficial by supporting you to make sure that your good health lasts a lifetime!
When you consult one of our experienced ayurvedic vaidyas, they will:
- ask you about your present and past health, any specific illnesses and treatments you have had, your current and past diet and lifestyle, and information about your social and family background
- take your pulse, examine your face, tongue, eyes, lips and fingernails
- determine your mind-body constitution (dosha).
If you have a particular health concern, it is important to get to the root of the problem and determine the underlying causes.
Based on the vaidya’s findings, you will be given a personalised, holistic regimen to follow which may involve ayurvedic treatments, dietary changes, yoga/exercise recommendations, daily routines, breathing techniques and other self-care practices.
If necessary, the vaidya may also recommend a customised detoxification program (panchakarma) to kick-start your journey to optimal health.

Vaidya is a Sanskrit word meaning “physician.” Specifically, it refers to a practitioner of Ayurvedic healthcare science, an ancient form of healing with roots in India. Traditionally, a senior practitioner was called a vaidyaraja(physician king), while the personal vaidya of Indian royal families was known as raja vaidya (king’s physician). Today, students of traditional Ayurvedic medicine train for up to 12 years before being conferred with the title of vaidya.
Ayurveda treats disease on a mental and emotional level, as well as on a gross physical level. A vaidya has studied all three aspects of healing. Illness and health are seen in the context of a person’s overall personality and circumstances, including family life and daily habits. Vaidyas must study not just medicine, but all aspects of life – individual and cosmic.
The vaidya diagnoses imbalances through observation of the face, eyes, skin and through pulse diagnosis, known as nadi vigyan. The pulse is taken with three fingers representing the three doshas (basic energies): vata, pitta and kapha. The vaidya also observes the patient’s personality and asks questions about lifestyle and diet.
Once a diagnosis is made, the vaidya recommends changes in diet, lifestyle and daily routine to correct imbalances. The vaidya may also suggest herbal remedies and other natural healing methods.
