Find balance in your body and mind. In Ayurveda we work with the elements and doshas which indicate your past and present constitutional state as well as your disease tendencies. The aim is to prevent rather than cure but we also work with any presenting health issues that arise.
This is an assessment (one hour), which includes a full holistic health screening and Ayurvedic constitution analysis which will tell me about any imbalance in the bodymind.
I will then recommend specific Ayurvedic bodywork, daily routines, dietary changes, herbs or Yoga practices that may be helpful for you.
Depending upon your focus we then agree a plan for follow up sessions. The Ayurvedic health system tailors everything according to your individual needs.

Thank you Virginia for an amazing Ayurveda hour - a beautifully fluid and flowing massage with warm oil. So grateful, it was magical and made my weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My Ayurvedic consultation with Virginia felt like a chat with an old friend. Her consultation report was thorough and she responded to all of my concerns. It’s really interesting to find different ways of approaching your life and diet!
“We are both very pleased with our appointments with Virginia. It has helped us to see our health in a different way. Through a more holistic approach it has made us more aware. Understanding the impact of our diet and life experiences and a tailored programme to help change these gives us new focus and motivation and believe that we can make the positive change we want to see. Many thanks.”
I would wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend both the Ayurvedic approach to wellbeing and Virginia for her considerable insight and experience having contacted her when I was struggling to overcome the aftermath of pneumonia. Physically and psychologically I felt so out of sorts and that I had 'lost myself'. We had an online consultation and everything Virginia explained to me finally made sense and I was naturally keen to learn and experience more. I opted to join her Autumn Cleanse group and since that time I haven't looked back, now feeling 100% healthy, with bags of energy and strangely like the entire pneumonia episode had not happened.
I feel I have learnt so much in such a short space of time, with Virginia so supportive and endlessly patient throughout. Adaptations to lifestyle and dietary approach felt like such a minimal price to pay to recover both my health and wellbeing, whilst all the time knowing I was investing my time very wisely. Even if you are just a little curious then I would absolutely recommend it is worth taking those first tentative steps to discover what a positive difference the Ayurvedic approach can have on your life.
“Virginia is amazingly committed and dedicated to every individual under her care. I attended an ayurveda cleansing retreat organised by her in November 2022.Unusually, she arranged to meet all the participants prior to the retreat and sent questionnaires for us to complete so she knew much about us before the event. Her personal engagement with each of us meant we trusted her. She provided specific treatment and massages for each of us. Her high level of expertise combined with her interest in each person is truly commendable.”
