I am conversant with various forms of alternative therapies that have a lot of scope to benefit a person suffering from the modern day ailments. I have studied Yoga, Acupressure and Sujok in great detail from reputed institutes and learnt Reiki traditionally.


I have been working actively in this field since 2004. My patients range from 6 months to 74 years of age. I have used various aspects of Yoga, Acupressure, Sujok independently and in combination for alleviation, management and prevention of many maladies.


In the era of evidence based medicine, it has become necessary to substantiate the therapeutic claims of alternative systems of medicine with scientific research.


I conducted a study to determine whether meditation has a role to play in accelerating self healing process, under the guidance of eminent researcher Dr R Nagarathna and Rajyotsava awardee, Guinness world record holder Dr John Ebnezar. We took up a trauma condition, of fractures, as our subject of exploration and got extremely encouraging results. Click here to know the details of the research-work.
