Combining ancient wisdom with modern science
My background is in biochemistry and life sciences, so I know how different molecules work in the body. I also know how scientific research works and how getting into too many details while losing the bigger picture can be detrimental for health and wellbeing. Therefore, I use the Ayurvedic method to get the bigger picture and combine it with my knowledge of biochemical details where they are needed.
Individual systemic approach
There is a myriad modern diets which work for some people and don’t work for others, or are only effective temporarily and stop working after a period of time. The same applies to healthy lifestyle: it is not just about eating the right foods, exercising, and thinking positively. Our everyday experience and common sense shows us that what is good for one person may be detrimental for another.
My approach allows you to find out what is (and what is not) good for you at the current moment of your life.
Āyurveda and Yoga – holistic natural sciences about healthy and happy life
Āyurveda is the oldest medical system, it originated in India and has been practised for over 5000 years. It is a holistic medical system that takes into account the whole person, with their individual traits and circumstances, rather than reducing diseases to the physical body parts out of context. This offers a truly personalised approach to patients.
Yoga is a sister discipline of Āyurveda. Its main area of study is consciousness that is manifested through the physical body. The effect of Yogic practice often include deep relaxation, cessation of pain, more energy, deeper connection to the body, stability of mind, higher concentration, improved sleep etc. My Yoga therapy sessions are suitable for any abilities and energy levels. If you are fatigued and exhausted, these sessions can help you slowly build your energy levels.
