CONSULTATIONS

INITIAL CONSULTATION

As part of your initial consultation at The Sattva Centre, we will work together to establish important holistic health plan. Your initial appointment will be approximately one hour in length.

Your consultation with an Ayurvedic Practitioner will include:

  • An explanation of Ayurvedic origin, science and philosophy.

  • Establishing both your Prakriti (natural constitution) and Vikriti (current state of health imbalance) through discussion, analysis and questioning.

  • Establishing medical history, family history, past health issues and any current medications.

  • A systemic examination.

  • Daily dietary intake analysis.

  • Discussion about your current emotions and the mind.

  • Establishing any Ama (toxins) that may be in the body.

 

A subsequent follow up consultation is often required to review treatment plans and administer both external and herbal treatments if needed.
