Dolly Garton Wellbeing
Dolly Garton Wellbeing has been set up by Dolly, a Medical Herbalist who also provides holistic treatments including Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology (in particular Pregnancy Reflexology) and Lymphatic Drainage.
She has a wealth of experience in the holistic sector, having been practicing in London for over 15 years, in particular West London, Chiswick, Chelsea and Kensington and Covent Garden. Alongside this, she has continued acquiring new skills and updating current ones to offer the best quality of care and therapy for her clients.
Dolly practices from Neals Yard Therapy Rooms in Covent Garden and is happy to carry out homevisits within West London (Chiswick, Kensington, Hammersmith) and in Wiltshire (Trowbridge, Bath).
According to Ayurveda, during Winter, the digestive fire (Agni) increases to be able to assimilate more food and heavier food at a time when it is colder outside. This extra nourishment will not only protect from the cold but also improve immunity. However, if you overeat beyond the capacity of your individual digestive fire (Agni) then there is improper digestion leading to toxicity (Ama) in the body which leads to lethargy, congestion and the beginning of disease. Use warming spices in your cooking or as a tea to enhance wellbeing at this time of year. Spices such as Ginger, Turmeric, Clove and Black Pepper and herbs such as Yarrow, Fennel and Cinammon will all help build your digestive fire!
Areas which Dolly has had positive clinical experience in are:

‘The holistic approach taken by Dolly is excellent and really effective. I am given advice on ways to reduce stress at work as well as having a relaxing massage. I have always found Dolly’s extensive knowledge of both scientific and alternative therapies has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident to get the best of both worlds. I have and always will recommend Dolly to be the first port of call for anyone interested in alternative therapies.’ M.G.
