My first ayurvedic experience was ten days daily right eating, cleansing and massage in India three years ago.
This time I was doing my cleanse at home, in London, but I wanted to support it/myself with a massage.
I found Maxine Shorto at TriYoga, Chelsea; The Ayurvedic massage was such a lease for my body and soul that I just had to go once more two days later.

I was experiencing high blood pressure, and tinnitus, and the doctors had advised me to take blood pressure medications. Maxine helped me to see how my diet which was drying and salty was contributing to my health issues, and she prescribed me herbs that helped me to balance my unhealthy cravings, and have a regular elimination. After three months taking the herbs, my blood pressure went back to a normal range, and I felt more relaxed, and energised. I highly recommend her.

I visited Maxine with symptoms related to stress and anxiety, including wakeful sleep, restlessness, lack of energy and hormonal issues. Maxine advised that I was Vata imbalanced and explained the subtle, dry, rough and cold Vata qualities which seemed consistent with my symptoms. Maxine made some useful suggestions in relation to my diet and prescribed Ayurvedic herbs to be taken at particular times of day. I found them both comforting and soothing, and even used one of them to successfully calm my nerves during a job interview. She also offered an ayurvedic massage which was gentle, relaxing and healing. I particularly loved the effect of the "Pinda" a warm, steamed herbal bag applied to sothe pressure points. Maxine is a kind, gentle, knowledgeable and warm practitioner who has great life experience. I would recommend her to anyone who might beefit form Ayurvedic medicine and its healing properties.
