Physical Therapist and Ayurveda Herbalist
For the past 20 years I have been working in the medical and fitness fields as an Exercise Science expert, Physical Therapist and Ayurveda Herbalist (East Indian Holistic Medical System). This has allowed me to combine the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda with western medicine concepts of Physical Therapy and Exercise Science to treat patients with complex orthopedic and neurological injuries.
I have also trained both athletes and general population for optimal fitness and wellness. As a speaker and medical professional I have taught this integrated approach to health and wellness to people of all backgrounds and age groups with various health problems.
I am a Clinical Ayurveda Herbalist, having studied both in India and the United States with the world renowned Ayurvedic physician Dr. Vasant Lad and at the Ayurveda Healing Arts Institute of the Medicine Buddha Healing Center. I have a Master of Physical Therapy degree from the American Physical Therapy Association.
My advanced training involved specialization courses in clinical assessment and treatment techniques involving manual therapy, rehabilitation, injury prevention and exercise/fitness. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology with special emphasis on nutrition and exercise science for elite athletes and the general population
