The Asyra

Using the Asyra can give support in the energetic state of the body.

The Asyra works in a complimentary manner to support in strengthening the body and mind.
The Asyra is not a diagnostic tool and is not used to replace your G.P or Specialists.
If you have any symptoms it is important that you speak to your GP.
The Asyra is about creating Homeostasis not diagnosis.


The tendency of a system, especially the physiological system, to maintain internal stability, owing to the coordinated response of its parts to any situation or stimulus that would tend to disturb its normal condition or function.
