Ancient wisdom from India
What is Ayurveda?
In Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda means “science of life”. It is a complete approach to living whose ancient wisdom has withstood the test of time as its principles are as old as Life itself. Recognized by The World Health Organisation as “the world’s most ancient, scientific, holistic, complete, natural system of healthcare”, Ayurveda originates in India more than 40,000 years ago, in an oral tradition and was codified in written form some 5,000 years ago.
“Ayurveda clearly upholds the intimate connection between human life and cosmic life” (Dr Sunil Joshi)

She moved to Australia in 1987 where she set up practice in Melbourne. Since then she has gained a wide experience in Reflexology both as practitioner and teacher, and continues to be greatly inspired by the remarkable results achieved with her patients through this modality.
