At the end of the school year I was feeling quite shattered and concerned about my health, I was tired, irritable and swinging from anxiety to angry outbursts and suffering digestive disturbances. After years of reading about different approaches to health I am very drawn to Ayurveda. From day one of my Panchakarma treatments I felt the benefits; just entering the warm, divine smelling candle lit room on a grey wet day was therapeutic. I have experienced a wonderful healing under the superb guidance of Dr Ajit and Leanne. I am so grateful for the kind nurturing support they have given me. I feel a lot calmer, more balanced and stronger to deal with life again.
