Dr. Ram is an incredibly knowledgable and friendly practitioner. He has been so helpful in my partner and my health journeys, always giving us his time and patience with our questions. We did a week Panchakarma detox, which was amazing! It was a welcome reset, to allow us to integrate new habits for wellness. All the treatments during the detox were exceptional but the oil massages performed by Dr. Ram and Sophie were especially magical! Thank you all

Ram is a very kind and knowledgeable practitioner. I completed a 7-day Panchakarma at the clinic and had some follow up online sessions which helped me understand how to use simple Ayurvedic practices to support my constitution, and also helped reduce my period pain which was my goal for the treatments. Highly recommend Ram and his team!
