First consultation (usually takes 60 minutes):
During Ayurveda consolation experienced practitioner will take your extensive personal and medical history including lifestyle, diet and mental health and examine your body.
Auyurvedic examinations generally consist of three parts:
Observation (Darshan): It is the stage of inspection and observation. In this stage various factors like age and other physical characteristic of the patient such as body movements, colour of the skin and eyes, facial lines and ridges and qualities of the lips, hair and nail is thoroughly examined.
Touch (Sparsha): It is the stage where the observation is done through touch method. Palpation, Percussion and Auscultation are three different ‘sparsanam’ techniques. There is special focus on the patient's pulse.
Questions (Prashna): It is the stage of interrogation where the patient is asked about his complaints and symptoms, as well as the duration of discomfort and disease progression.
This thorough intake process helps the practitioner to identify what your body type (Ayurvedic constitution) is and the current state of balance or imbalance in the doshas which is very crucial in Ayurvedic treatment. It also helps practitioner to find out about key symptoms and potential causes of imbalance and determine suitable treatment options.
Consultation then follows personalized advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, breathing exercise and herbal remedies.
