TESTIMONIALS

Geeta, is the best healer I’ve ever been to. Every time I see her I feel more relaxed and healthy. I always return home happier, and as a result I exercise more, eat cleaner, and get more work done. Geeta is a rare gem!

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.

“This testimonial is to the powers of simple oil and herb based healing methodologies of Ayurveda. I met Geeta at a point in my life when things had pretty much come to a dead end for me. My body was a royal mess, I was totally angry and confused, and my life was very stagnant. I went in for a trial treatment ( I did Marma therapy the first time), after which I did an Ayurvedic consult, followed by a 9 week intensive treatment.  I don’t want to write too much about the treatments – that would take pages and also I would rather have you experience it all – but I must say that I never thought Ayurveda could bring about such a profound change in my life. Though Indian, I was never exposed to Ayurveda; in my family, conventional medicine is the way to go. At the end, i feel liberated, and that too is an understatement.”

“In retrospect, I would have: started Ayurveda sooner and signed up for panchakarma the first day I walked through the door at Geeta Arora’s. I came to Ayurveda in large part because I was at what felt like a dead end with western medicine. I have a long standing auto immune issue that caused a number of health problems, many with symptoms for which there is no known cure. I first went to see Geeta in August, and we started slowly, first with changes in my diet.  Although I am health conscious, these changes had dramatic positive effects.   Despite early success, it took me two months to set up an appointment for panchakarma.  The description of the process contained within it enough unknowns that my progress was slowed by tightly held caution.  But again the results were dramatic. The week long treatment rendered a number of changes, both physical and emotional. The most concise way to summarize the physical changes is that I felt ten years younger. Pains in my feet that I had learned to live with for the last five years were gone. My wrist and arm pain, accumulated over the computer keyboard and piano were gone. I stood straighter and felt lighter. My hair and skin felt more supple, and my body seemed to function more smoothly. It felt like my carapace had been removed. But in truth, these changes are nearly overshadowed by the emotional lift I experienced. I have a chronic, degenerative auto immune issue which, in my experience, leads to a steady stream of negative medical feedback, which is corrosive over time  Geeta gave me back a spirit of hopefulness. I have rarely been in the company of someone who is so optimistic—and have never been in the company of someone so positive about my health. She somehow made space in my head and my heart to be hopeful about my health going forward—a change that I hadn’t even thought to wish for—and for which I am forever grateful.”

I want to share a personal story with you about a life changing Indian therapy that has completely improved my mom’s quality of life. For the past 10 years, she has suffered with spinal stenosis and what western medicine termed “a degenerative spine.” Western doctors unanimously have told her that she would be in a wheel chair unless she had a surgery putting a rod into her body for support. She was not agreeable to this, as she felt on an intuitive level it was not the right solution or diagnosis.

Recently, I reconnected with a dear friend of mine who happened to run an Ayurvedic center in Palo Alto. Her name is Geeta and she is a miracle worker. We have been taking my mom to see her once a week for the past two months and her first round of treatment is done. She has moved from a walker to a cane and Geeta believes she will be walking again by the end of the year… albeit, slowly.

For anyone, who is having trouble with a western approach to medicine… I whole-heartedly recommend Geeta’s center as a place to try. It’s miraculous what ancient Indian oils made straight from the earth and her healing hands can do…!

Much Love to you Geeta ..!    Ami — at Ayurveda Mantra Healing & Wellness Center.

” While studying as an  undergrad in India  over 20 years ago, I had heard  in  bits and pieces about this wonderful Ayurvedic treatment called  Pancha-karma. I saw how rejuvenated and full of life this classmate of mine would feel after a treatment.  I am a male in early forties.  I am in general  good health except that I had begun experiencing pain  in the feet, a few years back – they would feel tired. I tried over the counter sole insert, foot-massage, medicated oils, Physical therapy, chiropractic care. Nothing worked. Life events – arrival of kids,  a new job and a new home added to my stress and I had frequent back aches. Determined to improve the quality of my life, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to do Panchakarma with Geetha. I  took an entire week off and had the support of my family for rest after I came back from treatment each day.  There were clear instructions and it helped understand  what to expect  as each day a different area was addressed.  Each day,  hours of massages with medicated oils worked wonders on my  body spirit and soul. I spent  quality time with myself – physical rest for the body, yoga for flexibility, time for reflection for the mind –  inspiration to adopt new habits.   A new appreciation for these words – compassion, care and therapeutic come to my mind as I think  of  what I experienced during Panchakarma process under Geeta’s care.  I felt an remarkable change in my flexibility and energy level within 2-3 days. The pain diminished towards the end of the treatment. Out of the beautiful Panchakarma experience came a resolve to make life-style changes  – providing an  outlet for expression – of creativity and thoughts.
It has been close to a year  since I have had Panchakarma and  I would whole heartedly recommend it from such a talented and skilled  practitioner as Geeta. ”

“My visit here was the most lavish vacation I could ever have!  I am revitalized, renewed. You may ask Geeta for a flower but she’ll make sure you always leave with a bouquet!   Thank you for all the joy & peace you give.”

“I found that the Panchakarma program to be more relaxing then I could have imagined. Geeta is very attentive and intuitive. She described my body type and various qualities of my personality. She listed a daily routine for me to optimize a daily balance. I need to start my day with various hygiene recommendations, drink warm water, eat breakfast before starting my work day, followed by eating a large lunch. The end of my day needs to include meditation or yoga, eat dinner by 7 and use the evening to reflect.  Self massages with sesame oil once a week was recommended. A shirodhara treatment gave me the most deepest, relaxing experience I could never have imagined.  She demonstrated and explained the importance of the Marma energy points. She demonstrated different nasal drops and I liked what they did for me. I had a herbal steam and really enjoyed that.I had a facial (best facial ever as I like deep tissue massage). Call for an appointment first as she wants to give each client her full attention. Trust me, this is quality service.”

This is my first review here. I went to see Priya in 2010 for a PanchaKarma…and received the best treatment I possibly could in this area…She helped with a total mind and body rejunevation….and I was able to get on with a healthier lifestyle after…Wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Geeta Priya is very good at massage as well as facials.  She also offers consultations on Ayurvedic practices and looks at massage more as a way to maintain optimal health the Ayurvedic way than just a way to pamper us over stressed, over achievers.  There is a lot of pampering as well.

Kathleen

Geeta Priya is awesome and has a wide range of modalities to make you look and feel beautiful, inside and out! She has great energy and is compassionate!

Geeta Priya is really cool and took time to explain some ayurvedic concepts to us. She did not push her products to us but did recommended one of her facial cleansers for my rosacea. It worked great! We both intend to go back for ayurvedic consultations.

I haven’t seen Geeta for a few years as I moved away 2 years ago.  However, I still dream of going back.  I first met her in graduate school circa 2011 and was having MAJOR skin issue.  All of a sudden I developed insane acne and she was able to help me with it.  We took a holistic approach which I loved.  It wasn’t just the products but understanding how seasons, stress, and foods were also impacting me.    I became obsessed with the products while I was there and also enjoyed other treatments such as the Oil on the forehead/ Shirodhara (just don’t make dinner plans after).

This is the first time I have had ayurvedic massage and therapy. I wanted a different experience and this is it! I had 2 different but complementary treatments: Abhyanga -the herbal oil massage and Shirodhara the Oil on your third eye or forehead. Geeta the practitioner was welcoming and very centered. Her techniques were relaxing and totally different from anything I had ever had….the Shirodhara the pouring oil over the 3rd eye on your forehead is a 5,000 year old treatment. Warm fragrant almond oil is used for the long stroked lymphatic massage. The treatments were spectacular and oh so relaxing. I wish I lived closer (I am in Maine) as this would become part of my self-care regimen. Thank you Geeta for such a magnificent experience and the sharing of yourself.
