Massage Therapy, Healing, Nutrition & Ayurveda

Drawing from this beautiful ancient system and wisdom, we combine authentic Ayurveda with a western approach, offering treatments,detoxification, nutritional advice and holistic counselling to help support your lifestyle, everyday health and emotional well being.


Loretta Heywood has worked as a holistic therapist in Notting Hill and West London since 2003.  She works intuitively, and combines this approach with the Ayurvedic system of diagnosis to further understand your body’s energy, to find where the root of your problem may lie.

Working on the principle of ‘relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation’, she holistically treats health problems, stress and related issues that can result in various symptoms and degrees of illness, or simply tension within the body or mind. In Ayurveda this closely relates to the three doshas and how they uniquely manifest as an ‘imbalance’, and are treated accordingly.

Ayurveda believes the route to health and happiness is to live according to your unique nature and to follow your heart; overcoming obstacles supported with simple therapies, deep relaxation,Sometimes a simple change to a small aspect in our lives, often looking at the cause whilst treating the symptom, can make a big  transformation to how we think and feel.

The signature treatment is based on an intuitive therapeutic deep tissue massage combined with Ayurvedic techniques, Marma Therapy and healing  to facilitate not only muscular release, but also to rebalance you at a deep physical and emotional level..The philosophy of Ayurveda and its treatments is to put you in touch with a deeper understanding  within your own body, by removing stress to allow self-healing to take place.

This, alongside a de-stress rejuvenation treatment has helped people move forward in life by treating many of the physical or psychological problems we suffer from such as:

  • deep muscular tension, back and neck problems;

  • tension headaches and stress;

  • anxiety, insomnia, addictions,  depression, life transitions; 

  • weight loss or gain, digestive problems, food intolerances; 

  • menstrual problems, menopausal symptoms, skin disorders.

Also available are detox/rejuvenation programmes and supportive treatments for overcoming addictions combined with Ayurvedic knowledge of self discovery

Many people have tried Ayurveda in India and even though they deeply understand the benefits of this science they do not see the connection with treatments outside of India. Loretta’s personal approach to people will welcome you to the world of Ayurveda in an ‘easy to grasp’ way, empowering you to take control, understand your own health, applying  a western approach to Ayurveda which can be used in your everyday life. Many clients say this has given them a sense of achievement - helping them regain confidence, and greater awareness of their health on many levels.

"All disease begins when we forget our true nature or spirit. Ayurveda provides a  M.A.P to health (ModernAyurvedic Programme) to help create balance and find our true nature again."
