I have a bone on bone situation with my right hip and was suffering quite a bit when I met Geeta. To back up just a bit, I am scheduled to get a hip replacement. The surgeon is well known and very busy, so my surgery date is 2 months away. Geeta saw me limping one day and asked if I was all right, and we struck up a conversation. She said she was an Ayurvedic practitioner and may be able to help me with the pain, so I went for a consultation, and was so impressed with her knowledge, intelligence, credentials, acute listening skills, generosity and deep compassion. The 15 minute free consultation turned into 1.5 hours, and I decided to take the journey of healing with her through a 7-day Panchakarma treatment. Having had 7 years of meditation training from the same spiritual center that Geeta got her Ayurveda training, I understood that this would be an authentic and deep treatment, possibly transformational, but I remained curious and went in with an open mind and the willingness to see what would unfold. The hot oil massages and steam tent to release toxins, the shirodhara treatment (dripping of water on your 3rd eye area), the many conversations that I shared whatever came up on the table, all helped me to deeply release physically, mentally and emotionally. I never had such an understanding of the connection between how the mind, our traumas and emotional issues are so intertwined with our body and disease (dis-ease)/pain.
Geeta also put me on a cleansing/balancing diet. And all the while, supported me in the kindest, most caring and compassionate way, dispensing so much wisdom. After suffering with severe hip pains for a year, and looking for solutions through Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Physical Therapy, the Panchakarma treatment did the most good in helping my hip pain to lessen. There is so much to continue with after the treatment. Geeta helped me to set the intention of healing myself so that possibly, by the time my surgery date arrives, my pain may not be there anymore. Our journey together gave me that possibility, and even if I end up needing the surgery still, so much has shifted for me, that I can honestly say that I am in a totally different and much more peaceful, pure, grounded and clearer space than where I was when I started the treatment. Geeta is a very special woman of the highest integrity, with a commitment to help you heal yourself in a transformational way that you cannot imagine going in. It’s hard to put this kind of “what you get” experience into words. You need to try it and see for yourself. She will take excellent care of you.
