Fire and Water combine to form the principle of Pitta, lending their qualities of heat, penetration, fluidity and moistness to this dosha.

The term Pitta means "Bile", hinting at this dosha's ability to transform, for example, food into nutrients. All functions relating to heat production and metabolism are governed by Pitta. Pitta also governs the process of digestion, the liver and blood, the endocrine system, eyesight and the complexion of the skin.

Healthy Pitta shows as a strong digestive system, soft and radiant skin, keen intellect, strong willpower, ambition and organisation.

An excess of Pitta may manifest in conditions such as inflammation, burning sensations, bleeding conditions, excessive sweating, eye sensitivity, excess heat in the digestive system (leading to loose stools or acid reflux), vitiation of the blood (leading to skin conditions such as eczema or rashes), feelings of frustration, anger and being overly critical.

 

" I had the Shirodhara treatment with Colette, I found it to be a profound healing experience. The treatment itself was out of this world but what made it such a special experience was that Colette explained all the theory behind the treatment and the ancient wisdom behind it – all of this at 8.30pm as if I was the first client of the day."

G.M. (Aromatherapy Associates trainer)

" Had a marvellous massage from Colette. Highly recommended. Five stars."

Wellbeing Magazine

" Thank you Colete for a great training session. Best place for learning about Ayurveda."

Lynn (after training at an Ayurvedic Academy)

" Thank you so much for the treatment yesterday - my skin still feels so soft! I slept so well last night, too."

Kate (after an Udvartana massage)

" Colette is an excellent practitioner: competent, knowledgeable and caring. She appears to have an intuitive sense of what’s required and has a warm and caring personality. I have no hesitation in recommending this very capable practitioner. "

Frank (after consultation & Shirodhara)

" Thank you so much for all of this information... Since our session on Friday I have felt lighter. My digestive tract also seems to be moving healthier."

Angela (after a consultation)

" My treatment was one of the most well delivered massages I have experienced. Throughout my treatment, my therapist [Colette] was highly professional yet friendly, approachable and reassuringly knowledgeable."

The Good Spa Guide

" I just want to say thank you for everything you have done for me over the last few months. I really appreciate it and feel very lucky indeed to have met you. There is no doubt you have helped me a great deal and I know you have gone above and beyond the norm."

Richard (after consultation & treatment)

" I contacted Colette seeking help with recurring tension headaches. [Meeting Colette], I felt I was with somebody professional, competent and caring. With the very first Shirodhara treatment my headaches improved and I began to sense more vitality and an overall sense of improved wellbeing. The Shirodhara is an amazing experience – calming, relaxing and completely de-stressing. "

Frank (after consultation & Shirodhara)

" I have felt SO much better since my last appointment - seriously better. I have loads more energy and it is mostly steady throughout the day - in fact this is the first time I have felt like this over a continued stretch of time for some years! "

Alexandra (after consultation & treatment)

" Thank you so much for the massage on Friday. I really did feel an energetic shift, especially in my heart, lungs & stomach area. I felt lighter and nourished."

Nina (after a Marma massage)

" The nasal treatment was really interesting - much nicer than I imaged it to be. I think the best way to describe how I felt afterwards is this: it felt like the inside of my nose had been hugged and acknowledged. My nasal cavity felt gentle - a similar way to how my muscles feel after a massage. It was a really nice feeling."
