It’s All in the Head!

Indian Head Massage was the first massage I learned many years ago and it is still up there as one of the most requested massages. I think most people have at least heard of it or maybe have a friend that has tried it and so it has slipped into mainstream massage territory. Part […]

SKIN DEEP

According to Ayurveda we should “never put on the skin what cannot be put on the tongue or in the mouth”. I pondered this when I first heard it. A quick glance around the bathroom and there were all kinds of products that would have been better served cleaning the loo than the face, […]

Ayurveda Autumn 2017

AYURVEDA AUTUMN 2017

Excess dryness (vata) and excess heat (pitta) in the body are factors for hair loss.
Time to […]

Winter

Winter is a combination of Vata (dry, cold, windy) and Kapha (cold, damp, heavy). It is best to pacify Kapha during winter season with warming herbal teas such as ginger, cinnamon and any warming spices and to eat hearty, spicy soups.

Season’s Greetings

I thought I would be writing about cold and frosty days and nights, but it is not so here in the UK! We are experiencing one of the warmest winters on record with only parts of Scotland seeing any snowfall so far. What we have got is storms of such magnitude, causing much […]

Ayurveda Autumn

AYURVEDA AUTUMN

From the Spring Equinox the Sun has reigned on high and all of Nature has grown skywards. The Autumn Equinox now balances the scales and as the light declines all must go downwards into the earth; where the mysteries of death and rebirth take place. Seeds that are dispersed by the winds will […]
