Our Approach

The Medicine Man Ayurvedic Apothecary has its roots in the ancient science of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda (pronounced eye-er-vay-da) literally means the 'science of life' and developed out of India over 5,000 years ago.

It is based on a '5 element' theory - Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Space - with every individual containing a unique balance of these 5 elements at birth. This is known as one's Prakriti, or 'constitution'. According to Ayurveda, while ever this balance is maintained, the individual enjoys good health. However, dietary choices, lifestyle factors, environmental influences, working conditions, and our emotions, can impact this balance, thus creating the foundation for dis-ease.

The current balance of the 5 elements within an individual is known as 'Vikriti'. Ayurveda seeks to bring the current state of the elements back into line with the innate constitution, thereby restoring balance and facilitating a return to health.

We also offer a unique range of body therapies, for people with acute or chronic musculoskeletal problems and nerve related issues (sciatica, backache, frozen shoulder, RSI etc), as well as therapeutic massage for general wellbeing, and Shirodhara for people experiencing insomnia, migraines, nervous disorders, and stress. See 'our services' page for details.
