"I have been visiting Planet Ayurveda and Dr Ajit for over 20 years now.
Throughout this period I have found each experience very restful, peaceful and practical. Whether I am having an Ayurvedic massage or simply there for a consultation with the Doctor the result is always satisfying and reassuring. When I am feeling insecure about the state of my health and I think Vata Dosha is out of balance I know it is time to visit Dr Ajit. Being a holistic based experience the Doctor will run through my diet, emotional health, take my pulse, and make very practical and insightful suggestions. If herbal remedies or old fashioned home remedies are needed then that will be indicated, then it is up to me to put the suggestions into practice.
I am very grateful to Dr Ajit and his team for all the care, love and attention they have shown over the years. I have a greater understanding of my body and emotions due to practicing Ayurvedic medicine."
"I was introduced to Planet Ayurveda by a friend in 2006 or so and have been going ever since. When I follow Dr Ajit's advice my health always hugely improves. Dr Ajit's recommendations work very well but you have to follow them if you want great results. The therapeutic treatments have been of great benefit to me. The ones I normally have are the Katibasti, massage and steam, and shirodhara. As someone who drives a lot and plays violin the katibasti has been excellent in curing my back problems and preventing them from reocurring. The massage and Shirodhara help me release tension and feel relaxed. I find they have a calming affect, putting both body and mind into a well balanced state. Many thanks to Dr Ajit and the team for the great care I have received over the years, and am still receiving! 💜"
“My treatment was great. I had a Moksha, a full body massage followed by a steam session. This was my first time receiving a massage from a male therapist and I felt energized and relaxed at the same time!"
"15 years ago I had the privilege of having an appointment with Dr Ajit at Planet Ayurveda and so started my Ayurveda journey of self care, with the added awareness of knowing which foods suited my body type. I am now 85 and thankful to still be an active healthy person, which I feel is the result of having embraced all the simple routines that Dr Ajit taught me.
Thank you Planet Ayurveda."
