You can feel the season of Spring about to smoothly glide over us– slightly warmer days, longer hours of daylight and some of the trees have begun to bloom. It is so beautiful if you are still enough to observe the subtle shifts.
From an Ayurvedic perspective, we as humans, are constructed from the 5 elements of nature and are therefore, intrinsically linked with it. A change of season then also means a shift in our bodies. The onset of Spring can bring about all sorts of symptoms such as hay fever and allergies, aggravated skin, an imbalance in gut flora, agitated sensory organs and a disturbance in sleep patterns as the days become longer and brighter. Any form of change to the human body ultimately weakens it and can lower immune strength.
This is where Ayurveda can be of great assistance. This holistic science suggests that before every change of season, we should cleanse and strengthen the body. Ayurveda has many detoxifying treatments ranging from simple dietary recommendations to quite targeted treatments such as Pancha Karma which is only to be administered by a qualified Ayurvedic doctor. At The Sattva Centre, we offer consultations to support you with seasonal routine on a day to day level, while also offering both internal herbal medications and external body treatments to help your body effortlessly transition from season to season. One key treatment to help strengthen the immune system, clear toxin build up in the body channels and strengthen the mind, is a Nasya or nasal drop treatment (see our Treatments page for more information). Depending on your natural constitution and current state of imbalance, we will determine the oils applied and particular techniques of Nasya suited to you, but this simple and quick treatment (in conjunction with an Ayurvedic consultation) has remarkable benefits particularly for seasonal routine and change.
If you are someone who suffers badly with seasonal shift, have a chronic condition such as hay fever or allergies or you are simply feeling a need to have a bit of a cleanse and some rejuvenation strategies in place, please make an appointment to come and see us.
With love and light,
