What do you Know About Ayurveda?

by Holli Young |

Indulging in an Ayurvedic treatment this winter could be just what you need to help you feel balanced and energised.

We have a range of beautiful Ayurvedic Treatments available right here at the Wishing Well courtesy of our richly experienced therapist Yvonne Toms.

But before you place yourself in the care of her expert hands, here are a few things Yvonne would like you to know about Ayurveda...

~The Ayurvedic system is over 4000 years old, making it one of the oldest medicinal systems known to man. Its approach however, is extremely appropriate to the ailments of modern life!

~Originating in India, Ayurveda is one of the finest examples of a holistic approach to well-being. In other words, it endeavours to improve health by treating the whole person and not just the symptoms.

~Ayurvedic treatment takes mental, physical and lifestyle factors into account and combines nutrition, yoga, massage and herbal remedies to nourish and restore both body and mind.

~An Ayurvedic practitioner will work with you to determine your bodily type or "dosha" before treating you.

~An Ayurvedic massage uses hand-blended oils and will focus on the "marma points" of the body - areas where we hold congestion, inflammation and locked emotions or energy.


The following treatments with Yvonne are available at The Wishing Well:

  • Full Body Massage
  • Head Neck and Shoulder
  • Foot and Calf
  • Anti-ageing Holistic Facial (Using beautiful tri - dosha products)
  • Stimulating Massage (With Otional De-tox Treatment)
