Abhyanga + Sound Healing + Subtle Therapy

You begin with an Abhyanga: a rejuvenating full body massage incorporating medicated oils specific to your unique constitution and the season.

Abhyanga is particularly effective to stimulate and strengthen the lymphatic system, enhance blood circulation, calm the nervous system and mind and much more.

Subtle Marma Therapy

This Abhyanga is slower and more attention is put on the body’s marma points (vital points that house energy and concentrated life-force). This is a subtle therapy that is required to enliven areas of the body where deep power is stored.

Sound Healing with Didgeridoo

Finally, the ancient Digeridoo (Yidaki) may be utilised (if required) to infuse primordial vibratory frequencies into specific bodily channels and central nerve plexus's (chakras) in order to alleviate imbalances within the mind/body system and restore harmony and health.

Abhyanga + Subtle Therapy + Sound Healing
1 session (90 mins or whatever time is required): $250.

Rakta Mokshana – Blood Liberation

A unique treatment to eliminate toxins from the blood.

One of the five most powerful treatments in Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, there are five prime treatments to eliminate toxins from the body known as Panchakarma.
Pancha = “Five.”
Karma = “Action.”
The “five actions” are:
1. Vamana (Therapeutic vomiting)
2. Virechena (Purgation)
3. Basti (Enema)
4. Nasya (Nasal cleanse)
5. Rakta Mokshana (Blood liberation)

The way ayurvedic medicine “liberates” blood is through the unique blood letting method of leech therapy.

Leech Therapy is indicated for:
- Skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis - according to Ayurveda, toxins that manifest as skin diseases are mostly stored in the blood.
- Blood diseases
- Necrosis: failure of blood supply
- Varicose veins, spider veins and obstructed veins
- Arthritis and joint issues
- Blood clotting - (leeches contain the most powerful anti-coagulant known to man).
- Excess pitta, or heat and acidity
- Gangrene
- Gout
- Diabetes
- Improving nerve activity and blood flow

Australian Hospitals Can’t Resist Using Leeches Today
Today in the Australian state New South Wales, alone, over 20 hospitals use leeches in their medical practice. In Europe they use leeches even more. They are mainly used post-surgery to bring back blood quickly to heal the site. Their is just no other anti-coagulant that is more powerful to increase blood circulation for healing.

The Process of Leech Treatment:
- Before placing medical grade leeches on your body to have a suck, preparation treatments such as abhyanga massage and sweating treatments are performed for a few days to loosen up, move and pull deep seated toxins to be collected in the peripheral blood tissue.
- Then the purified and hospital grade leeches are placed onto the skin om the target area until they naturally latch on and gently start sucking.
- Sucking can last for 15 minutes and go up to two hours. Everyone is different. The leeches are left on until they have had enough to drink and naturally fall off.
- Leech therapy does not hurt. It is like a teeny tiny pinch.
- After the leeches are off, a herbal anti-bacterial and wound healing paste is applied along with a bandage over the small prick.

The Leech Also Gives Back Fluid
The leech inserts a special nectar from their saliva back into the humans blood that makes the bodily intelligence to send back the bad blood only. What more is that this fluid it inserts into our body, known as Hirudin, is the most potent anti-coagulant known to man.

Unique Method of Blood Letting
A unique feature about leech therapy is that leeches are bias - they only suck toxic blood and not the pure blood.

“Just as the swan drinks only the milk from a diluted milk, similarly the leeches drink only the bad blood first from the pool of (vitiated) blood.”
~ Astanga Samgraha of Vaghbata, ch 35, 4.

A Divine Tool of Ayurveda
Lord Dhanvantari, the lord of Ayurveda and the health aspect of consciouses, brought four vital instruments to the world in each of his four hands:

1. Amrit Kalash - A pot of nectar.
2. The sound/knowledge of Ayurveda
3. Lord Vishnu’s Chakra (wheel used as a weapon)
4. A LEECH!

The Importance of Blood
Some Ayurvedic Sages even say that Rakta (Blood) is a 4th Dosha.
That’s right, consider Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Rakta!
This is because blood is the only tissue in the body that can be vitiated by itself, all other tissues are vitiated by the doshas.

Pancharkama Detox and Rejuvenation

Panchakarma is a methodical combination of taking herbs, treatments and adjusting diet and lifestyle to cleanse and renew the body. These treatments are hands-on, rejuvenating techniques that purge the physiological stress and toxins out of the body that cover the underlying natural state of perfect health residing in everyone.

The Process:
A certain internal environment has to be established to empower each cell to “remember” what it is like to be healthy. Each body treatment lowers metabolic rate, provides deep relaxation and an experience of total luxury. From here, the medicines and treatments will complexly adhere to toxins (Ama) in the deep tissues and dispose them in the GI tract to then be removed by the appropriate purification method - for example, enema or purgation.

Like the eye of a hurricane maintaining silence and calm as gale force winds swirl around it, establishing and maintaining a state of the deep transcendental calm allows the dynamic forcefulness of the medicines and treatments to work around this calm centre.

This state of deep and heightened internal awareness triggers a cascade of spontaneous healing on a deep cellular level where we banish our stress, fears, emotions and physiological cellular memories of illness.

What does a typical Panchakarma day at Vital Veda entail?
There is no “one size fits all” treatment in Ayurveda. Treatments are individualised and determined on the basis of each person’s constitution, state of health, daily schedule and budget. This will be determined during your initial consultation.
Generally:
Firstly you see practitioner Dylan Smith for a short consultation to monitor how you are going and he prescribes the treatment plan for that day.

Morning treatments begin after seeing practitioner Dylan Smith for a short consultation to monitor how you are going and prescribe the treatment plan for that day.
¥ Foot Bath (Pada Prakshana) - keeping the feet in medicated water to initially relax and calm the body.
¥ Abhyanga - a rhythmic massage using medicated oils to help move toxins out of the body. 
¥ Sweating Treatments - Pampering the body with warm herbal poultices (Pinda Sveda) or pouring medicated water over the body in a rhythmic manner (Parishek) will open up the pores to eliminate the toxins that have been collected.
¥ External Basti - A “well” made out dough is prepared to hold warm medicated oil over vital parts of the body such as the spine, knees, heart, liver, kidneys and more to nourish and release muscular-skeletal and organ imbalances.

Have lunch at home with guidance from Vital Veda’s recipes.

Afternoon treatments:
(can be included in with your morning treatment for those who prefer not to come into the clinic twice that day).
Takradhara or Shirodhara where medicated buttermilk or warm medicated oil is poured over the head in a rhythmic manner to pacify the mind, eradicate stress, damaging emotions, reminding the cells of perfect health and much more.

Once you have finished your series of Takra/Shiro Dhara’s, you may begin eye treatments where medicated ghee is held over the eyes to improve vision and reduce eye diseases.

By mid-afternoon you are allowed to rest by walking, meditating, listening to music or spending time with loved ones.

Light and early dinner with guidance from Vital Veda’s recipes.

Bed time treatment:
Your technician will come to your house to put you to sleep with a little oil application to the head + foot massage. Later in your PK program, you will additionally be having nourishing oil enemas to gently flush out the toxins that have been collected in the GI tract.
(bed-time treatment with a technician is optional as the patient can perform it by themselves).

Don’t our bodies digest and detox naturally?

The state of our digestion determines the state of our health. Our bodies are meant to eliminate toxins on a regular basis. The catch is, the detox pathway is the digestive pathway, and if digestion is poor, detoxification is hampered.

Over time, the inability to digest well and hence detox well causes toxins to accumulate in our individual “weak spots” (kavya-guna). This varies in each individual depending on genetics, lifestyles, diet etc. However, the typical places are the joints, lymph, liver, fats cells and in the brain. To restore balance, these accumulated toxins must be removed from the body and proper digestion and detox function must be restored. To go even deeper is to remove the root cause of the original stress - the behaviour, lifestyle or dietary patterns.

Is Panchakarma meant to be difficult/ challenging?

Mostly it is total bliss, relaxation and luxury when you are being pampered daily, a lot.
One uncomfortable aspect may be stress-release and emotions exiting the body, but this is a great outcome!
When is the best time to do Panchakarma?
When you can take time out to rest! When work and family commitments are minimal. When you can spend time away from screens!
Typically our senses are so overloaded with external stimuli that it keeps us from having a true experience of ourselves. Panchakarma turns the senses inside out to feel deeper parts of ourselves.

Perhaps the most important time to do PK is before conception, for both male and female. This is absolutely vital because the physiology of the sperm and ovum at the time of conception will be transferred to the health of the future offspring.

Duration: Panchakarma can go for 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 15, 21, or 23 days.

At the Vital Veda clinic, we offer a range of non-residential Panchakarma packages to adapt with your home and work routine. It can range from doing short sessions coinciding with work that same day, or if you can take time off work and family/social duties immerse in a full schedule as demonstrated above.

Kati & Greeva Basti – Back & Neck Treatment

A whopping 80% of Australians and Americans experience back pain.
1 in 7 Australians report back problems.

Unfortunately, many folks have become accustomed to this discomfort, and this dull body becomes the norm and they don’t recognise this as an issue, nor act on it. They have lost the cellular memory of a free and healthy body that is their natural state and their birth right.

This method to treat back and spinal disorders is so unique from any other methods out there today.

This keeps getting restated at Vital Veda through the astonishing results we get from patients who undergo this treatment. Some who have lived with pain or discomfort for years and tried so many other therapies.

Other treatment approaches, conventional or alternative medicine, all certainly have relevance and may even be used in congruence with this treatment.

Treatment Process:

  1. Firstly a back and neck massage is performed to activate the tissues and prepare the body to openly invite the basti to do its work.
  2. Medicated, analgesic oil is “held” by a well (made from flour), localised over the targeted vertebrae.
  3. The practitioner maintains the oil at a comfortably hot temperature so the oil and the herbs in it can penetrate all layers of skin, deep into tissues of muscle, fat (includes ligaments and tendons), bone, bone marrow, and nerves.
  4. Stiff and tight muscles will instantly be lubricated and softened. This solves the problems of many issues such as those listed below.

Pathology (Samprapti):

  • When muscles get stiff, they loose the ability to expand and contract.
  • Here nerves get compressed and conduction does not pass freely.
  • The energy of movement (Vata) is obstructed, and will try to create path with force, thus Pain.
  • This may cause a disk to bulge and slip.
  • When the intervertebral disc slips, nerves will touch edges and produce pain. Sometimes manipulation (e.g. soft or deep tissue massage) treatment will tear tissues and can pinch nerves even more.

Solution:

A back Basti counters the roughness, dryness, stiffness and tightness, allowing conduction to pass uninterruptedly, totally free from one neuron to the other.

Kati & Greeva Basti is indicated for:

  • Lower and upper back and neck pain
  • Slipped discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries
  • Stiff neck
  • Helps repair nerve damage and heals ligaments
  • Relieves sprain and muscular spasm
  • Nourishes the vertebral discs and prevents spinal degeneration
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Migraines
  • Can prevent or delay surgery.

Testimonials

“I had lower back issues and completed a series of 7 Basti’s which included massage with medicated oils. The quality of the treatment, the setting, even down to the relaxing whale music, made it a very special experience. Not only has it alleviated my back pain but also gave me a rejuvenated psychological boost.

I don’t hesitate to recommend Dylan who can offer other high quality Ayurvedic treatments that will make you feel on the top of the world. I actually attended a brief mini panchakarma session for a week in India with Basti’s but found Dylan’s Bastis’ to be more effective, this might have to do with his strong healing energy, his intention and use of quality medicated oils.”
~ Trevor, HR.

"I received a Kati and Greeva Basti treatment for my spine, back and neck with Vital Veda in Sydney. This was a deeply relaxing experience, I felt as if I was away on a retreat. Amazingly, after the treatment, my senses felt sharpened and I experienced an increased appreciation for nature and being outdoors. I’d love to do the treatment again. Dylan also prescribed a diet, lifestyle and herbal plan that has been easy to follow, feels so nurturing and has helped me feel so much better."
~ Lisa, Teacher

"Dylan Smith is extremely passionate and thorough when it comes to Ayurvedic treatments. I received the back Basti musculoskeletal treatments from Dylan in Melbourne. I have experienced lower back and thoracic pain ever since having my baby 15 months ago, constantly feeling the strain when picking her up, in yoga classes, and after long walks, something I never had before having my baby. I went to a yoga class after my 4th Basti and the pain was literally GONE! No strain/pulling/weak feeling in my lower back at all any my thoracic feels open again. I'm so happy I decided to have this treatment and highly recommend Dylan's Basti treatments to anyone who has experienced any sort of back pain."
