Ayurvedic Clinics in East London
First emerging thousands of years ago in India, Ayurvedic practice continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and complex mind-body health systems. Ayurvedic, meaning “life” (Ayur) “knowledge” (Veda), is less a cure and more an entire lifestyle. It is a holistic health system guided by two fundamental principles — that the mind and body are inextricably connected, and optimum health is achieved when the body, mind and spirit are balanced.
Drawing on over 5000 years of knowledge, Ayurveda is not only revered by the holistic health community but also by Western medicine. Scientific studies have shown Ayurveda can help to ease and even heal a range of health problems, including digestive disorders, heart disease and circulatory problems.
Due in part to the vibrant South Asian communities in the area, there are dozens of opportunities to learn more about this ancient health system with a therapist in East London. Whether a clinic or an individual practitioner, your Ayurvedic specialist will help you to identify your body type and how it relates more broadly to your physical, emotional, and mental health. Using this diagnosis, they may prescribe a diet, herbal medications, various forms of massage, yoga practices, and daily rituals to restore and optimise your health.
If you’re looking to completely overhaul your lifestyle and start living your healthiest, happiest life, this is for you.
Reiki Centres in East London
Reiki is another well-established and revered health system, which is principled on healing through stress reduction and relaxation. First developed in Japan, Reiki translates as “spiritually guided life force energy”, and is a powerful practice which taps into the energy flows of the body to alleviate blockages and restore full health. In Reiki, it is believed illness is a result of low energy flows, while stress is the result of exceptionally high energy flows. Using a unique “laying on hands” technique to stimulate the unseen “life force energy” which flows in the body, Reiki rebalances the energy in the body and helps to heal the body, mind, and spirit.
