Ayurvedic Wellness Centre – Who We Are
Consultant – Dr. Shaun Matthews
Shaun is the founder and the co-ordinator of the Ayurvedic Medicine Department at Nature Care College in Sydney, Australia. He is a medical doctor, Ayurveda and Yoga therapist who specializes in the treatment of chronic illness using a holistic approach and in the promotion of wellbeing.
Shaun has also trained in somatic or body-orientated psychotherapy, which like Ayurveda and Yoga, acknowledges the inherent wisdom of the human body-mind. He finds this combination of approaches to be complementary in nature and extremely effective in managing all kinds of chronic disease. He has a special interest in Ayurvedic approaches to rejuvenation as well.
Ayurveda is very helpful in all types of chronic illness and in the promotion of wellbeing in healthy people. Conditions treated include: generalised stress, lower back pain, weight gain, migraine, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression, low energy states, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypertension, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, musculoskeletal problems, food allergies and oesophageal reflux.<
Owner – Rita Sagrani
Rita is the founder of The Ayurvedic Wellness Centre and started it in mid 2011 after 35 years as the creator, director, designer and marketing manager of her own successful fashion label throughout Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Seeking help in meeting health challenges of asthma, Crohn’s Disease and the pressures of running her company, she turned to Ayurveda and Dr Sudha Asokan at her New Dehli Ayurvedic clinic 18 years ago. Since then she has been a walking and talking testimony to the healing and rejuvenating benefits of Ayurvedic body treatments.
Now after studying her passion and having grown up with the principles of Ayurveda from her grandmother in India, Rita is sharing her love and wisdom of authentic Ayurvedic body treatments in Australia working in collaboration with Dr Sudha.
