Consultation (diet, lifestyle, herbs)

Multiple chronic conditions are successfully addressed by Ayurvedic methods, which include adjustments in diet and lifestyle. Typical problems include chronic digestive problems, inflammatory conditions, allergies, skin problems, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, depression, hormonal issues, fertility problems, excessive or insufficient weight, aches and pains of different etiology.

During the initial consultation, you will be asked questions about your food habits, digestion, lifestyle etc. Traditional methods of diagnosis, such as pulse and tongue diagnosis, will be used to confirm the observations. Based on the conclusions, we will set up a therapeutic goal. You will receive suggestions regarding your diet and lifestyle. Most adjustments include the usage of over-the-counter herbs and spices but specific herbs can also be prescribed and supplied.

Restoring balance might take a while, so once you start incorporating the suggested changes into your daily life, depending on your response to the treatment, further adjustments might be introduced.

This is a complementary approach, so you will never be asked to stop any medication you are currently on. In the course of treatment it may happen that you no longer need it or need smaller doses, but that you can then discuss with your conventional healthcare provider.

Consultations are available in English, Russian or Dutch and in some cases can be conducted remotely.

Yoga therapy

Movement is essential for our bodies to stay fit and flexible. But it is also important for our mind and soul to move in a physiological way that brings relaxation and pleasure. The goal of this practice is to get connected to the body, learn to move and stay still ergonomically, and to relieve stress and tension. In my practice, I use meridian & anatomy trains principles and Yoga & Qigong based exercises. If there is affinity for dancing, then I also include elements of dance in our sessions.

I provide one-to-one sessions to individuals who want to address a certain problem and need a personalised approach to movement therapy. My main focus at the moment is on women’s health issues and chronic body aches that get no or only temporary relief from other forms of body work.
