When you make your appointment I will email you a client intake form for you to complete and bring with you to your first appointment. If you are not able to visit the clinic I am happy to offer consultations via skype.
As this is the first time we meet, I use this space to really hear what is currently most pressing in your life. We will discuss your answers to the questions in the client intake form in detail which will assist me in assessing how your current situation is impacting on your present sate of health.
After this thorough assessment, advice will be given with the aim of correcting digestion, removing toxins and restoring balance to body, mind and spirit. This advice may include some of the following:
- food and herbs as medicine;
- individualized daily routines;
- breathing and meditation techniques; and
- recommending Ayurvedic massage or other Ayurvedic treatments.
The amount of advice given is dependent on each individual person. This is considered because my aim is for you to succeed at implementing the advice given and not to overload you.
I will answer any questions you have about Ayurveda and will assess your constitution and identify where it is imbalanced and then discuss a plan with you.
Cost: $110 – 90 mins
It is advisable that you have a follow up visit 1 week after your initial appointment to check your progress and re-adjust your program if necessary. I am of course available to you on email or phone between visits.
As you can see from the testimonial from Maria below, how very important it is to stay in close contact initially when implementing new routines. I have found that this support is an important part of successful change.
It is difficult to give a standard length of time that I may need to be involved with someone because every individual is very different and may struggle with different blocks in the process of change. I may need to see you weekly or fortnightly. I negotiate what feels right for you personally and will be there to support you as long as you need.
Cost: $80 – 60 mins
What works best?
It has been my experience that people have the best introduction and success with implementing Ayurveda into their lives if they start with a 6-8 week commitment. This includes the initial consultation and then 5-7 weekly follow up consultations which consist of, checking how the previous advice is being implemented and if there are any difficulties and a marma point massage. Each session is 90 mins in duration, allowing 30 mins for your follow up consultation and 60 mins for your massage.
The success of these longer commitments is because it actually takes 35 days for what you eat today to become your immune system and be totally digested through all the tissue levels of the body. So after 4 weeks you are really just beginning to see and feel the results of the changes you are making. My commitment to you for choosing either of these programs is to reduce the price so you will save $90 on the 6 week program or $120 on the 8 week program.
Cost: 6 week program $570 8 week program $760
Testimonial: I was suffering with menopause symptoms, severe anxiety and mild depression when I decided it was time to get serious and do something positive to improve things before they continued on the downhill spiral. I did not want to go on HRT which my doctor had prescribed for me previously. I’d had several major operations and had really been through the wringer with doctors and hospitals so have always preferred a natural approach rather than medication.
Having read some books on Ayurveda I decided to approach Linda at Rainbow Atma for some advice and treatment. I felt instantly at ease with Linda’s relaxed and empathetic nature. I felt Linda really understood what I was experiencing and I was confident I was in the right environment to find a natural and healthy solution to improve my health.
After an initial diagnosis through discussion and a series of questions, Linda explained to me that my body was imbalanced and she set out simply what I needed to do in terms of diet (which included helping me with some wonderful recipes and cooking advice!) gentle exercise and meditation and also did Marma Point massages on me which were wonderful. Linda helped me set a daily routine that I could manage with my work load and lifestyle and then most importantly for me supported me all the way through it.
After just 3 weeks I am already amazed at the results! The improvement in my mental and physical health is amazing and the anxiety and depression have lifted and an unexpected bonus for me was I lost 1.5 kilos! In fact there is no comparison to how I was feeling and how I feel now. I would not have believed it myself if I hadn’t been through the process. I am very grateful and feel very fortunate to have been able to find a healthy natural solution to my health problems and to have found someone I feel confident in to help me with that process. I am now approaching this next stage of my life with a lot more confidence and enthusiasm! Thank you Linda, I will forever sing your praises!
Testimonial: To anyone out there who is feeling a little bit out of control, out of sorts or just not themselves, I suggest you see Linda and have an in depth and comprehensive consultation and I promise that you will feel better immediately, just by listening to her. She has such a calming demeanor and you just know you have done the right thing by seeing her. Then do as she suggests.
I changed my daily routine and my food regime and have never felt better. I am now toally vegetarian, although this wasn’t something she pushed. I get more than enough protein from the foods that were on my Ayurvedic plan and found that I didn’t need to eat meat, chicken or fish to feel like I’d had a meal. I feel full of life vitality and can’t begin to thank her for her help. It isn’t always possible to stick exactly to my new daily routine but I certainly know when I’ve strayed from my quiet time, morning and night.
To say that I would recommend her highly is understating how I feel about this amazing woman. Please call her if you need centering in your life. She is someone you can trust to care about you and do her best to help you be the person you wish you could be inside and out.
Testimonial: From the moment of walking through the door, I felt welcome and nurtured. Linda’s wealth of information and instinctive abilities created a space where I could learn about my body and help create balance in all areas of my life. After one week, I felt more in tune and balanced in body and mind. With Linda’s guidance, I was able to realign with my body and make more conscious choices in my day and in my meals. I was able to take a breath and listen to my body….a simple process that isn’t always as easy as it seems.
Her approach is fun and incredibly empowering to the individual. Knowing that I am creating a healthier lifestyle is an incredible gift to myself….a gift that Linda and her expertise helped create!! Love your work Linda!!!!
Testimonial: Hi Linda, how are you? Thank you for your help, it has made a big difference. The first thing I noticed was no more static in my head. And now when I eat I really know what does it for me and what doesn’t. Have been scraping my tongue every morning, walking everyday and having the lemon, ginger and honey drink twice a day. Thankyou for weaving your magic it has done wonders for me. Hope to catch up soon.
