Resident Ayurvedic Doctor & Programme Director
Dr Shamilka directs the Sanctuary’s Ayurvedic programme and is a highly talented, dedicated and professional practitioner. She obtained her Degree in Ayurvedic Medicine from the University of Colombo and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to guide guests on their path to optimum health and wellbeing.
Having understood the value of this natural medical system from a young age, Dr Shamilka decided to train as an Ayurvedic Doctor so she could share this ancient wisdom for the benefit of others. She is committed to serving the long-term wellbeing of each of her patients, focussing on the state of their health and wellbeing in 10 years’ time, as well as 10 days’ time. Her caring and nurturing approach is gratefully received by guests and we are lucky to have her leading our Ayurvedic team.
“The best thing I enjoy about my role at the Sanctuary is I can get to know each guest and design a treatment programme especially for them. Giving proper guidance to my patients and taking care of them through this holistic concept is a joyful experience and it is a privilege for me to support guests and see the positive changes when they are here with us.”
