Your first consultation with the  Ayurvedic practitioner or Naturopath, at Satmya, will  take from 1.5 to 2 hours.

The following steps will generally form the basis for any consultation:

  • Pulse, tongue, nail &/or iris (iridology) analysis may also be part of your consultation process
  • Dosha identification & analysis (Ayurveda)
  • Advice & Medicines: At the end of your consultation you will be given an advice/recommendations sheet. This will consist of  dietary & lifestyle advice as well as a list of Herbal/Ayurvedic/homeopathic/vitamins, etc to take as part of your plan.
  • All the personal information you provide to your practitioner is held in the strictest confidence.

Ayurvedic Treatments

Therapeutic body treatments are an integral part of the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda and are seen as being vital to maintaining health and restoring balance in the body & mind.

Each Ayurvedic treatment has a specific purpose and all aim to return the individual to a harmonious state of health and wellbeing. These ancient treatments are not just about pampering but may also be very helpful for specific health problems

For Doug & Yvette Thank you for your help – just when I needed it! Jean Turkey

I’ve had a bad allergy for 30years but since being treated at Satmya, by Douggie & Yvette, it has improved immensely and also my overall health has improved. I have more energy & am feeling a lot better in myself. Jim

Dear Doug & Yvette, Thank you for being custodians of nature’s healing… Your invaluable advice and friendly warmth has made a great difference in my life. My blessings enfold & surround you!! (Ire ) Kindly Omolara

Both Doug & Yvette have helped me a great deal over the past few months. Their expertise and knowledge have benefitted me and personally I am delighted with my decision to try & explore other remedies. I have learnt a lot about myself and my lifestyle and would encourage anyone to enrich their lives by exploring and experiencing some quality time at Satmya. — Geff

Doug & Yvette
A note to thank you both for introducing me to Ayurveda and to tell you how lovely it was meeting you both. The whole experience was really wonderful. Thank you again, Valerie

Dear Yvette & Doug,
I just wanted to thank you both so much for the wonderful weekend in Killaloe. Satmya is really such a special place and I’ll look forward to visiting again. The workshop and all the fantastic advice has helped so much and the food was delicious. Many Thanks & Best Wishes, Keeva

I have been here for ongoing treatment for several months and have found great help & despite my regular “whining” have always been treated graciously & helpfully. My “in house” treatments have been wonderful and graciously applied and I now see “light” at the end of the tunnel. I have experienced great gentleness here & will continue to come when I have the need. Thankyou, Rosemary

This place is truly a place of wellbeing & balancing from the moment before I walked in the door I knew I would be looked after -in a way I’d never been before -like traditional medicine. Satmya evolves – and as I return I evolve, also -many of the questions I had are now answered -most of my body problems have parted with Naturopathy. It is a pleasure to come back here and I highly recommend it to everyone – and will be – have been spreading the word. I wish Yvette & Douggie continued success and all the best for the future. JMcK

I came to Satmya because I was going through a really stressful period and wanted to take the natural route to healing. I can honestly say that I got some respite from my anxiety as soon as I walked through its doors – even if it was only temporary to begin with. There’s just this tangible sense of calm. It emanates from the warm earthy décor, the incense-filled air and the bright, smiley faces of the owners. I did the ayurveda workshop and picked up some gems like the ‘gyatri’ mantra and the daily massage routine. The workshop was practically based but was also really conceptually stimulating. It sparked a deep interest in me for greater spiritual development and personal responsibility. I’m so grateful for the experience. I’m a calmer person for it. Thanks, Doug. Audrey
