My Journey to Vita Shakti...

 

My extensive exploration and study of integrative fields in healthy sciences, combining ancient wisdom with modern medicine, has been the cornerstone of my journey to self-discovery and healing. As a practitioner and through my own personal experiences, I have come to understand the immense power of the mind in promoting health and healing, while also recognizing its potential to hinder progress.

As a woman, I have encountered and struggled with the effects of hormonal changes on my mental and physical health, as well as my fertility. However, by embracing healthy practices such as diet, yoga, and Ayurveda, I was able to transform my entire being through simple changes in lifestyle, breathing patterns and awareness.

The challenges and blessings of motherhood further enhanced my understanding and application of the wisdom shared by my teachers, enabling me to turn difficulties into opportunities for growth and development.

My journey has instilled in me the importance of continuous learning and openness to change, be it in my personal or professional development. Through this, I have learned to listen to my inner light, nurture and care for myself, and most importantly, serve others with all my heart.

My passion lies in supporting and guiding others in their own paths to self-discovery and healing, enabling them to achieve holistic health and wellbeing. I consider it a privilege to serve my patients and help them attain optimal health and wellbeing in all aspects of their lives, be it physical, mental, or spiritual.
