"Dylan, my Ayurvedic Practitioner of choice in Australia, is an expert at knowing how to properly move imbalances from all the tissues of the body in a very systematic way. It’s a system of consciousness moving consciousness. Dylan is a premier conscious man, and what he does with his hands is a reflection of his consciousness. He is able to move imbalances out of your body to allow it to be expelled in a proper and safe way. This method is Abhyanga.
When you come in for a treatment, you may feel either too much sadness, anger, fear, tiredness, agitation or qualities that are not helpful present in the body. After a treatment with Dylan, the body is able to release the consciousness into its fullest potential. What I experience when I am treated by Dylan is an experience of the restoration of creative intelligence of the body that then liberates the mind to be able to perform at its fullest potential."
~ Thom Knoles, Maharishi Vyasananda, Vedic Master
"Discovering Ayurveda about 10 years ago remains one of the most profoundly significant experiences of my life. Being a mum with young children the opportunity for me to return to India for some authentic healing is a while away so to recently discover Dylan Smith of Vital Veda in Bondi is wonderful. He is living his Dharma and offering such a beautiful gift of deep, nourishing healing. I just blissed out during an Abhyangha and have booked in for next week too. Dylan is amazing. I am so grateful to him for doing what he does.”
~ Amy Atkin, The Moder Mind Clinic
“Last night was incredible. Woke up feeling AMAZING today. Awesome! Delicious. Feel so energetic today.”
~ Jessica, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, the morning after a Shiro Dhara.
“I have had quite a few Ayurvedic massages over the years, and that was the best one I have ever had, without a doubt.”
~ Simon Borg Oliver, International Yoga Authoritative Figure, Physiotherapist and Director and Founder of Yoga Synergy
"During my Abhyangha session I completely lost myself and I began to feel like an ancient land being shaped and sculpted by the elements. Each stroke and touch evoked the sensation of ocean currents, tides and powerful winds shifting and configuring my earthen body - deeply cleansing me. It was an incredible feeling.
Dylan truly is a master at what he does. Jai Guru Deva."
“I’ve sent my mother, my partner and my best friends to Dylan. His expertise and care are exceptional. He's truly impressive.”
~ Jo, Meditation Teacher
"Dylan's attention to client specific needs is sensitive and thorough. His facilitation to my Abhyanga massages prompted full release of traumatic muscle memory caused by physical and emotional distress. Our sessions together nurture physical emotional and spiritual vitality."
~ Max, Musician
“I was fortunate enough to have a consultation with Dylan when his close associate from India, Dr Raju visited Melbourne in June. The experience was rather eye-opening and unique. Dr Raju was humble yet freakishly insightful and Dylan expertly interpreted/explained the treatments as well as dispensing correct medicines and answering any questions I had. A memorable and excellent experience.”
“That was the best experience I have ever had in my life. Everyone has to try this!”
~ Sarah, after an Abhyanga
