Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest surviving medicine system in the world. Its philosophy lies in the delicate balance between mind, body and spirit, without which we cannot be in true health.The five elements of Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth, present in everything and everyone, are grouped in Ayurveda into three functional principles, or Doshas  – Vata,  Pitta and Kapha. These need to be kept in balance for us to remain healthy. Sonja conducts detailed consultations and diagnostic tests to establish her clients’ constitution type and decide where any imbalance lies. She then creates individually tailored programmes of nutrition and lifestyle adjustments for clients to follow in order to regain and maintain holistic equilibrium.

Ayurvedic diagnosis helps to treat any diseased state and is highly suited to many modern day imbalances such as digestive or skin issues, diabetes, obesity, fatigue and stress.Sonja places great emphasis on health of the mind, and helps people to learn how to reduce and manage stress and keep the mind clear in order to make sensible nutrition and lifestyle choices. Ayurveda teaches us the importance of taking responsibility of our own health.
