- Ayurveda provides a deeper meaning to the secrets of mind, soul and body.
- Ayurveda teaches you to know your own unique body type and how the elements and season can affect your health.
- Ayurveda provides a complete system of effective management for total body awareness, healing and wellbeing.
There are two approaches to health and wellbeing according to Ayurveda and below is an introduction and explanation of these treatments. All of these are offered at our clinic in Warrington, U.K. All our herbs and spices are mixed and prepared on the day of your treatment and made with organic ingredients where possible
The two ways that Ayurveda treats ‘dis-ease’ and cares for the body are:
- Rejuvenation Therapies
- Purification Therapies (Panchakarma)
Gentle yet profound and carried out by the administration of herbs and spices used for healing, alleviating and rejuvenating the body. Rejuvenation therapies are carried out on a regular basis to help maintain a balanced Dosha during a busy life style. These therapies are nurturing, caring and given with love and attention. Blissfully relaxing, rejuvenating and healing. There involves a series of internal and external cleansing and detoxifying practices that encourage the body to be clearer, fresher and vitalised and providing deep and stimulating effect.
These rejuvenating therapies involve Ayurvedic massages for different parts of the body, oiling and steam therapies and the use of herbs and spices, oils and potions that are mixed on the day of your treatment and administered to provide the optimum results. In some treatments fruits and vegetables combined with oils, spices and herbs are used to offer active and potent natural enzymes to the treatments.
(Panchakarma) A powerful and fundamental treatment for deep rooted diseases and attention must be paid to before and after care. Panchakarma treatment according to Ayurveda is said to eradicate or eliminate the dis- ease in the affected dosha’s and acts as the body’s MOT requiring a once a year ‘service’ that keeps the body in optimum health. Purification and cleansing the body internally is more that a Detox of the body as this treatment removes ‘ama’ which is a deep putrid toxin that remains in the cells of the body.
Purification is the process of neutralising and eliminating toxins and disease in the body. A certain amount of toxic build up in a person’s body is virtually unavoidable in a world full of pollutants, in the air, or in the food that we eat. But when dis-ease takes a hold we use Panchakarma treatments that go direct to the core of the body and remove the cause of the dis- ease. By purifying the body, a person can enjoy a state of revitalisation, reduced blood pressure and blood fats and many common and difficult ailments can be relieved.
All Panchakarma Therapy should be carried out by a professional Ayurvedic Practitioner and will not be administered until a full consultation and preparation is performed.

Tian di/ bamboo massage/ full body sculpture therapy (12)
You will begin with a full body Energy Brush. The Energy Brush uses fine bronze bristles made of a special alloy of copper and zinc. Due to the molecular structure of these fine bronze bristles, the ions which are important for our body and well-being are generated directly on the skin, which makes them immediately available to the organism and the metabolism.
The central atom of the human body is oxygen, which makes up more than 80 percent of our organism. Our true elixir of life consists of the energetically charged oxygen ions which we take in from the air we breathe, the water we drink or in an especially concentrated form from hydrogen peroxide. This substance is also contained in the sea coast, waterfalls, rain and snow. We can produce these important negatively charged oxygen ions mechanically by air friction whilst using a special alloy for brushing our skin.
Followed is our wonderful full body brisk rub using natural organic precious Eu De Toilette Queen of Hungary Spray that’s rubbed onto the whole body by hand. Opening up the skin this prepares the body for the exclusive Sculpture Oil that follows and the fragrance enlivens all the senses. Includes a Revitalizing Alchemical Ingredient that improves the absorption of products. Purifying and draining, it is ideal for treating problems such as water retention, cellulite, tired legs, with an Anti-aging effect.
Exquisite Body Sculpture Oils - Shapes the figure and helps reduce fat naturally and effectively.
Thanks to the digestive strength of Blessed Thistle, the anti-lipid strength of grapefruit and lemongrass, and the detoxifying strength of lemon and fennel, this exclusive body oil treatment provides a true and natural "fat burning" effect. WITHOUT the use of CAFFEINE, it shapes your figure, slimming and reducing it by up to an inch, draining your body of excess liquids, and eliminating toxins and surplus fat diuretically.
Firming, cleansing, moisturising and stimulating effects combine to help reduce excess body fat. Tones while keeping the skin supple and smooth. The 100% natural ingredients in this unique blend help promote cellular regeneration.
Tian Di (Bamboo Deep Tissue Massage) Bamboo is one of the most multifaceted plants growing on our planet. It has earned its reputation from its noble and soft appearance as well as its perseverance under harsh conditions. In the Orient, bamboo symbolizes strength, fertility, youth, prosperity and peace. Bamboo has a unique energy all of its own, one that has a special magnetism; this plant emerges from the earth and grows straight and tall, as if it wants to reach the heavens. Tian Di means heaven and earth we are all part of the universe and the intention is to help our clients to maintain harmony within their bodies.
The Bamboo is essential for this therapy and is unique because its walls are covered with silica. This creates an outer cover of tiny quartz like crystal matrixes that are activated when they encounter the right conditions of mechanical stress. The two main properties of quartz are Piezo and Pyro electricity, which produces an energetic charge. Piezoelectricity is activated with pressure and Pyroelectricity with heat. Through the massage we apply pressure to the body with the bamboo stick and the friction that is created will activate the molecular structure in the silica together they are a powerful tool that is charged and creates dramatic and permanent changes, as many of you who have tried it already know!
This massage is like nothing you have had before and it creates a new way of feeling. As clients get massaged with the Cho sticks the energy that is contained within the walls of the bamboo is transferred to them, creating a series of unique and new sensations. Most people describe these as: tingling all over, feeling that the cellulite and fats are being ‘worked away’ and everyone feels alive and energized. When the principles of piezoelectric are applied to the body, the electrical and thermal energy activates peripheral circulation. Enhanced circulation will remove stagnant toxins and move blood throughout the body, heart and lungs, improving internal respiration. Oxygenated blood will return nutrition and healing aid to the cells and tissues of the affected areas. Emotionally, this therapy provides a total sense of relaxation. While the client’s body is feeling the warmth and the flexibility of the bamboo, the energy from the natural bamboo encourages lightness and relaxation.
Stagnant emotions can surface once the client feels relaxed, nourished, and has reached a point of trust. Even for those who are not able to connect as deep or as high, there is an experience felt. Most clients understand that something profound has taken place. It is not unusual that the effects of Tian Di therapy continue for days after the session. Every client who has experienced this treatment feels that their body shape has ‘shifted’ and clients often feel that their clothing is looser than when they arrived.
Followed by our FAR Deep Infra Red Cabin Deep heat penetration allows removal of toxins, alcohol, nicotine and metals. It helps in curing chronic fatigue; promotes muscle growth; raises growth hormones level; and reduces cellulite. Calories used in half an hour in an infrared sauna session are more than that used while running for the same time. Electric light infrared saunas are very helpful for cancer patients. They raise oxygenation and remove radio active residues. Infrared saunas are good for chronic infections. Infra red saunas require 90% less energy and heats much faster than traditional saunas. This sauna can also be used for patients suffering from varicose veins, metal implants, hypertension and diabetes where conventional saunas do not help. The healthy process of detoxing in an infrared therapy cabin at a temperature of between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius is an excellent method of improving or even removing various ailments. Regular infrared deep heat therapy treatments increase the metabolic rate and detoxify the body. A strong, consistent flow of energy is the key to alleviating tension. By enhancing the blood circulation in the back, a cocktail of endorphins is released bringing your body into a state of wellbeing.

IOLIFE / unlock the energy that gives you positive relief (13)
Below are details of a unique machine that I have introduced at the clinic – I would highly suggest that you take advantage of this new and revolutionary treatment for yourself – it is extremely effective and completely holistic
Iolife is a unique treatment that creates a highly concentrated stream of charged ions which release their charge when they make contact with the skin, creating a current through the body.
This current helps to maximise the performance of the body’s natural energy channels, contributing to the effective treatment and potential healing of many common problems and ailments. It is relaxing safe and non invasive.Iolife also creates a Detox effect which helps to bring clarity and helps increase a positive healing response – excellent for skin rejuvenation.
On average the most common ailments will require at least 3 to 5 treatments and more serious ailments can last much longer.
There are only a handful of machines in the UK and the Ayurveda Clinic and Academy has recently acquired one for its clients.
Iolife brings relief from shoulder, neck and back pain, muscle and tendon damage, whiplash, tennis elbow, migraine and headaches, acne and skin complaints, asthma, PMT, colon disease, gout, bacterial infections, MND Motor Neurone Disease, ME Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and MS Multiple Sclerosis, chemotherapy, wound and burns and many areas not listed.
Costs are £40 for first consultation and treatment lasting an hour and a quarter followed by further treatments at £25 each, lasting 45mins and for optimum results 5 treatments minimum.
‘The technology that makes Iolife so successful'
The Iolife system utilises a method known as “Controlled Ionically Transferred Effect” (C.I.T.E.) in which an electronic effect is transferred through the air to the patient to be treated. Although it is not suggested in the title, it should be stressed that the philosophy behind the technique is based on the concept of acupuncture linked to certain atmospheric electric phenomena and coloured light.
Ayurveda Consultation (14)
Constitution / Prakruti / Body Types or Dosha’s – CONSULTATION & Chakra Balancing Energy Treatment.
People come in so many shapes and sizes, colours and weight that it seems obvious that we shouldn’t all eat and do the same things to make us healthy and happy. We are all individuals with different tastes and experiences and there are more variations the physical differences can be important clues but they don’t tell us about emotional characteristics, about behaviour, or why some people never gain weight and others can never shake it off, or why some are constant worriers and others struggle to rouse themselves into action. We suffer from all kinds of ailments yet despite this wide range of people-types, the differences in how we react to food, to our surroundings and to each other are treated by the mainstream health industry in broad brush strokes. Even a headache is usually dealt with by a very limited range of options centred on paracetamol or aspirin, Ayurveda defines three main dosha’s They are known by the Sanskrit names of Vata, Pitta and Kapha and have particular work to do in our bodies. We need them all to function together.
Finding out your individual constitution by examination and asking specific questions about physical, mental, emotional states and completing our unique extensive questionnaire reveals patterns that help determine which one of the dosha’s is out of balance, causing dis-ease. From this we offer nutritional advice, life style practices and herbal remedies to use at home.
The consultation ends with a Chakra Balancing Energy Treatment that leaves you feeling calm and balanced.
£50 for 90 minutes
EFT Emotional freedom Technique (15)
Based on impressive new discoveries regarding the body's subtle energies, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has been proven successful in thousands of clinical cases. It applies to just about every emotional, health and performance issue you can name and it often works where nothing else will. EFT is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says...
"The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system."
And because our physical pains and diseases are so obviously connected with our emotions the following statement has also proven to be true...
"Our unresolved negative emotions are major contributors to most physical pains and diseases."

Panchakarma – Overview (16)
A Sanskrit word that means "five actions" or "five treatments". This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Ayurveda says that imbalanced dosha’s create waste matter. This waste matter is called Ama in Ayurveda. Ama is a foul-smelling, sticky, noxious substance that needs to be evacuated from the body as thoroughly as possible. Panchakarma will help to remove the excess dosha’s and imbalances. Cleansing and purifying the system by means of the body waste channels such as sweat glands, urinary tract, intestines, etc. Panchakarma is a complete balancing treatment and must be done over a period of time. It involves daily massages and oil baths and is a unique practice of profound healing. Ayurveda recommends Panchakarma as a seasonal treatment for toning your mind body system. It is said in ancient texts that after 3 years of Panchakarma treatments the body will be free of illness.
This is the last stage of the treatment that the Ayurveda Practitioner carries out after preparation, which is an elimination method and should be used to expel unwanted deeper toxins from the body. The classical Panchakarma Therapy is a comprehensive method of internal purification of the body by five special types of Ayurvedic treatment procedures, namely - Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Vasti and Raktamoksha.
- Vamana - Emesis treatment for expelling aggravated Kapha Dosha from the body.
- Virechana - Purgation treatment for expelling aggravated Pitta Dosha from the body.
- Vasti - Medicated enema treatment with herbal oils and decoctions for expelling the aggravated Vata Dosha.
- Nasya - Nasal Medication for the purification of Head.
- Rekta Moksha - Purification of the blood traditionally was carried out by extracting small amounts of blood relieving pressure. Nowadays blood purifying herbs are used.
The five practices of Panchakarma
This is a very brief introduction to Panchakarma and anyone considering this treatment should contact the clinic for full details of this profound practice. The examples given below do not include all treatments and advantages; contact us about your own problem. Prices on application.
Panchakarma is a five-fold therapy; it is highly personalized based on the needs of the individual depending on the body type, Dosha imbalances etc. Usually, only parts of the five therapies are needed.
Pre and post treatment is important to complete success
Prior to starting Panchakarma, oiling and heating and preparation of the patient is done over a period of time to encourage the excess dosha’s from the different parts of the body to their proper place in the digestive tract, to enable them to be removed from the body. The client should be prepared to devote time and attention to themselves before and after treatment.
This treatment is used when there is congestion in the lungs causing repeated attacks of bronchitis, cough, cold or asthma; it is a very effective method of treatment for the upper body. On a spiritual level it helps to remove excess grief that sits in this area of the body. Used for the clearing of Kapha complaints.
Virechena Purgation Therapy
Is the cleansing of Pitta and the purification of the blood toxins. Virechana cleanses the sweat glands, small intestine, colon, kidneys, stomach, liver, and spleen it is excellent for treatment of skin diseases, chronic fever, piles, gout, jaundice, gastrointestinal problems, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Medicated enemas are used for various specific reasons it is especially good for Vata disorders. Vasti alleviates constipation, chronic fever, the common cold, sexual disorders, kidney stones, heart pain, vomiting, backache, neck pain and hyper acidity. Used for the clearing of Vata complaints.
Nasya Nasal Administration Herbal Inhalation Therapy
This treatment involves inhaling from herbs and spices that have been prepared for this practice. It helps with ear, nose and throat disorders such as migraine, sinusitis, catarrh, and bronchitis. The nose is the gateway to the brain and to consciousness. Prana the energy of life enters the body through breath taken in through the nose. Nasya therapy helps to balance the disorders of prana that affect the higher cerebral, sensory and motor functions. Nasya is used for sinus congestion, hoarseness, migraine headaches, and eye and ear problems. And providing the relief of anxiety and stress.
This treatment traditionally involved the extracting of small amounts of blood relieving some of the pressures that are created by toxins in the blood. Now a days blood purifying herbs are used.

Spice Spa Experiences – half day
‘Travelers resting for a moment on the riverbank knew something that we have mostly forgotten. We know it is refreshing to immerse and drench ourselves in water, and we are generally aware of its therapeutic value. Yet most of us have lost touch with our spiritual relationship to water. Until recently, water was one of the most universal spiritual concepts on our planet. Buried somewhere in the genesis of every culture is the idea that water is divine, life giving, healing, cleansing and renewing.'
