Lara Sinha (DAPC Dip. ALNC Dip. AMT.Dip Ayur)
I am a fully qualified Ayurvedic Wellness Consultant and Practitioner. I studied Ayurvedic Medicine at The Ayurvedic Institute in London (UK) and qualified under Europe's foremost Ayurvedic physician, Dr. Deepika Rodrigo (B.A.M.S).
I have a vast clinical working experience and deep knowledge of Ayurvedic principles, gained whilst working and training alongside Ayurvedic experts worldwide. In the last few years have written articles for several international health publications and more so recently featured in Ayurveda Health & Tourism Magazine.
My own personal ethos is not just to help those with any physical disorder, but to achieve an optimum mental, emotional and spiritual health for all.
Through a personal consultation, taking into consideration privacy and confidentiality, I will use my extensive professional knowledge and skills to devise your custom made treatment plan.
My professional speciality and interests include Womens' health and auto-immune disorders. My goal is to specialize further in these areas so that you, the patient, benefit at the highest optimum level.
As an affiliated member of the Association of Ayurvedic Practitioners (AAPUK), I continue to pursue my professional development and expand my medical and scientific knowledge through regular training modules.
Please read all my current testimonials from previous patients.

The Sanskrit word Ayurveda has two roots: ‘Ayu’, meaning life and ‘Veda’, meaning science. The practice of Ayurveda is founded on the principles of a 5,000 years old universal medicinal system which use is proving very much in existence today. Ayurvedic treatment is tailored to each unique person in a professional, supportive and compassionate environment.
Ayurveda believes that the human being is a microcosm of nature containing five elements. Ayurveda looks at a human being and treats in a holistic manner, taking into consideration the unity of mind, body and spirit. As a complementary and preventative medicine, it is very helpful in treating symptoms effectively.
Ayurveda is helpful in treating a number of different problems, including digestive issues, circulatory & nerve complaints, female problems such as menopause, endometriosis/PCOS/Fibroids etc, thyroid/hormonal imbalance, reproductive issues, obesity, joint & muscle pain, auto-immune disorders, skin problems, allergies, respiratory conditions, stress, anxiety, low mood and sleep disturbance.
Before your treatment starts it is important to attend a personal one-to-one consultation during which your unique constitution will be assessed and your medical history discussed in order to address and treat any problem at the root cause level and find out about your expectations and needs.
After the initial consultation, the treatment plan will be formed addressing a particular condition or looking to maintain your health in line with your constitution. This may include changes which can be incorporated into your lifestyle. Changes consists of some possible adjustments to your eating habits, lifestyle and may include medicines and external therapy applications.
The length and type of treatment planned depends on each person as different levels of support are required to maintain individual healing.
"Great place to get healthy and Energetic !" - Dr. P. Krishna, General Practitioner, Berkshire.
" I had a consultation and treatment recently for women's health issues. Lara made me feel very relaxed and I spoke to her openly. Her knowledge and professionalism is outstanding. I experienced amazing benefits and results. I would recommend her treatment methods happily to friends, family and colleague with no hesitation" - Claire - Senior Ward Sister, Wexham Park Hospital NHS
"I have been treated with both kindness and total professionalism with detailed explanations of all Ayurvedic methods and treatments. I started my programme this Monday and rally feel it has had a major impact already" - John, Economics & Computer Sciences Teacher, Surrey.
I have been interested in Ayurveda for a while and after taking a few online quizzes and never feeling they truly resonated with me I decided to have a personal consultation. I was not disappointed. Lara is so friendly and welcoming which makes it easy to open up. I instantly connected with her assessment of my dosha constitution. Having a better understanding of myself has allowed me to make small changes to my everyday life which have had a significant impact on my mental health, productivity and overall well-being" - Sarah - Reading, Berkshire
"I have been treated with both kindness and total with detailed explanations of all Ayurvedic methods and treatments. I started my programme this Monday and really feel it has had a major impact already" - John, Ecomics & Computer Sciences Teacher, Camberley, Surrey
"Lara creates an atmosphere of trust and commitment to her work. We have experienced her thoughtful and caring application of Ayurvedic medicine in several regular treatments which have resulted in a marked improvement in our health and well-being. This is our first (my wife and myself) exposure to Ayurveda but we have become, through Lara, very interested and trusting in this unique form of treatment, having known very little about it in the beginning. Her approach is gentle and in-depth, explaining things as we go along and advising us with diet and food combinations. The therapy is really quite marvelous and one can feel the benefits both during and after treatment. The Shirodhara (oil-pouring) is incredibly relaxing and takes the mind into a kind of meditational experience. Wonderful! We are both feeling the great benefits of Lara's work and have recommended her to our friends. There are few conditions which would not benefit from this kind of treatment and Lara is, in our minds, the bees knees!" - Graham - Company Director, Guildford
“I came to here two months back in total confusion with my mind and body. She is extremely kind, warm and non-judgmental and directed to me the right treatment. Few diet and lifestyle changes along with the herbs and therapy sessions has made my life so much better. (I have issues related to anxiety). Her therapy sessions especially 'Shirodhara' has proved to be extremely beneficial for me. I feel I have control of my anxiety at the moment. I have better energy and better digestion too. I really clicked well with Lara. I feel it's very important to have a good rapport with your therapist as well. I have had six sessions and am planning to continue with ad-hoc sessions. I would highly recommend the sessions“ - Sri V., Housewife - Reading, Berkshire.
“When i first came here i was not sleeping hardly at all, i had been suffering from a nervous & anxiety depressive disorder and it was affecting my work. After completing the 6 weeks treatment course, i can honestly say i am having more confidence and sleeping a lot better and feeling happier overall. Thanks a lot for your help" - Rahul, I.T Consultant - Reading, Berkshire
“I came to this place to try some treatment for my menopausal symptoms. I had been suffering from dreadful hot flushes for a long time, plus mood swings & insomnia. I was stressed with my job and my personal life had hit a crisis. I was taking HRT (which had appeared to stop working for me anyway). My doctor was not very helpful with my symptoms and just wanted me to keep on the HRT, but having read about the long-term side effects, I wasn't keen. I really hoped to find an alternative and that is when i discovered Lara who was recommended through a friend of a friend. I can honestly say the six weeks course helped me tremendously and now I'm no longer on HRT and feeling so much better for it ! Thanks so much for giving me the encouragement to do this and helping to improving my life and my health. It's really worth giving Ayurveda a go for these type of things” - Barbara, Corporate Finance Director - Slough, Berkshire
“I was in pain emotionally and physically. My business had suffered and one of the customer went into liquidation. I was so stressed and then I came across on Facebook and read the article on the Ayurvedic practice and thought to get in touch. I was first reluctant because it was very far from where I live. It was best decision I ever made. Helped me personally and the business. Lara is great! Very kind and willing to hear and understand the issues.Helped me with weight loss too. Recommended very highly“ - Yogesh, Marketing & Advertising - North London
"I came to see Lara a few months ago as i had a problem with my skin, Rosacea from the menopause. I had managed to reduce my skin redness but my skin was not clearing up until I saw Lara. She has been really helpful and caring, after talking about the diet she recommended to take an Ayurvedic herb and after 3 months my skin has completely cleared. I'm feeling great and confident again".Merci !!" - Catherine, Brighton
I started treatment with Lara some months ago for a fracture on my right knee. The treatment worked very well, within 10 weeks of taking the ayurvedic medicines there had already been significant signs of improvement according to the hospital scan, to an injury which had previously shown no signs of healing by itself. Feeling very grateful that I managed to avoid surgery. I am really impressed by the quality of service. The practitioner and the therapists are very kind and caring and really take time to listen to your problems - Liam - Bank Marketing Representative, Slough.
