My story:
I have been a physical therapist since 1995. After graduating with Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from University of Bombay, India, I got married to my wonderful husband Andy and moved to NY. It was exciting and thrilling to move to a new country. I have loved living in the USA. I met great teachers that taught me valuable lessons to help me grow as a person and a therapist. I have made great friends here.
I know how it is to live in pain. I have experienced it myself. In early 2002 when I was pregnant with my son, I started having low back pain which eventually started radiating to right leg making it numb! My co-workers in our PT clinic used to treat me with traditional physical therapy. I would be fine for some time but the pain always came back. It kept on getting worst. I gained a lot of weight, developed anxiety and depression because I could not keep up with the demands of my life. My doctor put me on anti-depressants and pain pills. It looked like I needed to have surgery to find any relief. It was caught in the whirlwind of pain, stress and extreme fatigue!
I was determined to find a holistic way to heal my body and reclaim my life! My search for holistic pain management lead me to a therapist who was practicing Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and Myofascial Release (MFR). After my session, I felt so relaxed and peaceful, I didn’t want to get up from the table! Along with therapy, I started doing yoga, meditation and started eating healthy.  I haven’t looked back ever since! I completely turned my life around. The credit goes to CSt, MFR, yoga, meditation and clean eating!
My Philosophy:
I love helping people create their vision of holistic health. I believe that the body holds the blueprint for vibrant health and energy. Therefore, given a caring and relaxing environment, the body will use those tools to create and re-create optimal health. I work as a facilitator, holding safe space for this natural healing process to occur. Every session is very relaxing, energizing, and totally unpredictable to promote authentic healing.  I believe that touch is an integral part of our healing process. 
I have created online programs so you can start being pain-free no matter where you are! In these programs, I show women how they can become fit, healthy and happy utilizing yoga and meditation practices. I would love to guide and support you on your journey.
