I have been involved with Ayurveda for about 17 years. I have been through Panchakarma about half a dozen time and 3-4 times with the healing gardens. I believe they offer very personalized service, they are very knowledgeable. The treatments here are excellent.
Probably the closest cleranse experience in America to actually going to a clinic in India
The gift of healing and understanding that you have graced me with are only some of the benefits and I continue to marvel at your wisdom and knowledge
This Panchakarma has exceeded my expectations. My body has become lighter and free-er, my spirit has too. The way it has been structured with body work during the day and then to end the day with these amazing experiences with music has made it very holistic. I know I will go home more refreshed.
Had excruciating lower back pain for over a month. Couldn’t move much, bend, or do any activity. I would wake up feeling exhausted every morning, energy less. Went to Orthopedic doctor, Chiropractor, and then finally decided to go to an Ayurvedic doctor, with my friend’s recommendation, although I had no expectations, as nothing was working.
So I came to The Healing Gardens.
Just by checking my pulse, Dr. Ram was able to tell my entire medical history and also family medical history. He started me off on some powders that don’t smell or taste good, but feeling change in my energy levels the very next morning and reduced pain, I started liking the powders. After a week, he gave me another home based oil treatment. After 3 days, I was scheduled for a 5 day series of an ancient Ayurvedic technique for the lower back – ‘Kati Bhasti’. 1 Hour of herbal oil treatments on my lower back for 5 days.
Just after the first day, I felt soo much relief, it felt like the best thing on earth! I was able to stand straight and walk. The pain gradually started reducing over the 5 days. Besides the back, I felt so relaxed overall and happy.
On the 4th day after the treatment, for the first time I felt pain free in over 2 months.
It’s been a week after the treatments, the pain has drastically reduced. I feel energetic, and have been walking straight, doing light stretches. Am careful about my bending positions and body movements and hopefully with regular follow-ups I will be able to feel like a child again!
Dr. Ram and Sujata are beautiful souls. They are so kind and courteous. They adjusted based on my work schedule. Thank you sooo very much Dr. Ram and Sujata.
Friends, Ayurveda is an old and ancient science but not obsolete. Depending on one’s condition, Orhtopedic checkup, X-rays, MRIs may also be necessary. But definitely give Ayurveda a shot! I’d suggest going to a Ayurvedic doctor rather than a practitioner.
I feel the treatment here is just not for physical healing but more importantly for balance of spiritual and mental energy. This is my first time and I feel the treatments work very well with me.
I have been coming to Healing Gardens for several months now, and have just completed Panchakarma there. It was a wonderful experience! Dr. Ram and Sujata are both so gifted and caring, and Melanie and Tami gave fantastic massages! I feeling rejuvenated after a week with them, and have started my workweek with a renewed sense of health, joy and optimism. This is a special place. I am glad I have a membership so that I can return every month for some care and inspiration!
Dr. Ram and Sujata evaluated my lifestyle and my physical condition to determine a course of treatment. I saw significant improvements in the condition of my facial ACNE, skin condition and my digestive system within weeks with further gradual improvements in the following months. The condition of my skin seems to be permanently changed for the better! And while I still have occasional breakouts, the severity and duration are noticeable reduced. My experience here has been very positive and I am thankful for the guidance that they have given me.
I owe you my life for I wouldn’t have lived long or well without your healing and guidance
I’d always wanted to try Panchakarma, and my recent experience at The Healing Gardens Detox Retreat (April 2012) went beyond my expectations! The amazing place we shared; all of the staff made me feel at home. The sense of camaraderie among the clients helped me feel like if I had known them for ever. And the treatments, the massages, yoga and the food! Overall, it was the most amazing experience. I would absolutely do it again and definitely will recommend it to my friends and family!
I have been with Dr. Ram and Sujata for one and a half years now. This is my first time with Panchakarma. I had a wonderful experience with this as well. Both of us will want do it again and will continue to do this for the rest of our lives and for this we are very thankful to Dr. Ram, Sujata and to all the wonderful staff.
I am now a big fan of Ayurveda Medicine and a believer in Panchakarma. I assure anyone reading this review that the Healing Gardens is exceptional. I was there for a 8 day Panchakarma – I needed to detoxify my body due to severe asthma, allergies and some eczema and skin issues.
Sujata is a very warm and caring person – she will guide you thru your Ayurveda treatment in a kind and professional way that will itself reduce your stress. Her meals were tasty and delectable and served with compassion and hope – I became more health-conscious with each meal because my body could really feel the difference. She taught me how easy is is to make healthy meals. I learned the how and why’s of wanting to and needing take responsibility for my own health.
Dr.Ram is a phenomenal ayurvedic practitioner – he is very experienced and can help put people on a path to healing. He not only has vast amount of knowledge and schooling but has real world experience. I found his ayurvedic practice to be very authentic. – Henry Valdez
words cannot describe as to how wonderful I feel to have found Dr. Ram and Sujata and the Healing Gardens Team! The are the best! the panchakarma Detoxification they put together was very concise, feel good feeling! Even though they fed me most delicious and natural foods, I still lost 7 IBS during my detoxification 7 day program! I feel energized, rejuvenated and relaxed and my body’s natural healing system facilitated my body to eliminate toxins without any difficulty! I feel fantastic – contact them if you want a natural healing for any ailment.
The Greatest component this week has been your genuine caring about your clients – everything you have done has been excellent. I will be sharing this wisdom and compassion with few others. I know this is the beginning of a journey for the rest of this life
For Panchakarma to make a difference in my broken bone, that I had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on, to feel no pain for the first time in 6 years and weeks later, NO PAIN is Amazing! Words could never describe my experience, nor my ways of life and I feel today, weeks later. Even though, I am still moving in my new body and acknowledging my reactions to be different, the way I walk and feel like I am walking on soft clouds, the calmness in my head – JUST UNBELIEVABLE
I would like to share my thoughts of gratitude regarding the April 2012 Detox program that I recently enjoyed in beautiful, Ojai. Dr. Ram and Sujata provided an incredible spiritual experience for the entire group. They both came with great concern and lovingly and personally arranged the holistic detox program down to the very last detail. I was administered the most delightful hands-on therapeutic oil, treatments – good, for mind, body and soul; a large thank you to all ther members of the team; Tami, Jessie, and Keri for their individual and skillful thoughtfulness and executing such dedicated, and personalized detailed attention; focusing on the prescribed areas of particular relevance. Each treatment – a delightfully planned journey, addressing the various low energy areas and directed by knowledgable, caring hands.
Not only does the Ayurvedic healing methods work for me but you are both so kind, compassionate and sincere and so Thank you for your help and guidance
Shirodhara Treatment was truly the most relaxing and spiritually healing experience I had ever experienced in my life!
The therapies I received at The Healing Gardens Detox Retreat helped me reflect and go inside of myself. I found that I needed to be in touch with myself more as I felt that I have been disconnected. Having the opportunity to interact with all the others at the Detox Retreat was an incredible learning experience for me. The therapies and attentiveness of Dr Ram, Sujata, Jesse, Tami, and Keri were excellent and a total team effort. This experience was truly a retreat.
I am very much in to alternative medicine. I first started seeing Dr. Ram and Sujata when I was diagnosed of a thyroid problem. I took treatment for few months and continued with a healthy diet enabling me to stay out of surgery for the past 4 years. Recently I had Netra Basti treatment for my eyes and I was baffled with the out come of it after couple of months. I had achieved tremendous improvement on my right eye. Thank you Dr. Ram and Sujatha for caring and healing me.
DR.RAM AND SUJATA TRANSLATE AND MAKE POSSIBLE PRACTICING AYURVEDA FOR EVERYONE! THEY HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE INFINITELY FOR THE BETTER AND I CANNOT REPAY THEM ENOUGH! IT IS FOR EVERYONE AND EVERYONE CAN BENEFIT GREATLY FROM IT! I CANNOT RECOMMEND THEM HIGHLY ENOUGH!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP!!! , NAMASTE, KRISTY.
I recently returned from a most happy visit to The Healing Gardens, where I was greeted graciously by Dr. Ram and Sujata; thereafter – attended to gently and with understanding by all concerned. I received an Abhyanga / traditional Ayurvedic massage by Julia who made a meaningful contribution by her obvious understanding of both Anatomy, and physiology. She targeted the prescribed areas based upon my consultation with Dr. Ram.
The diagnostic skills of Dr Ram are quite remarkable; a ‘gift,’ surely! My treatment, reinforced by his prescription of careful and understanding massage therapy along with balancing oils, and custom indicated herbs targeted my indicated areas exactly.
I was delighted to be in the care of such educated hands. A wonderfully – pleasant and balancing experience. Thanks again for the – The Healing Gardens.
It was wonderful from start to finish. Every day began with a smile and ended with a smile. It is unique to be able to get, in a 5 day span of time, to where you can really begin to feel a change in your body so I would recommend this to anybody looking for a change in their life and in their lifestyle.
I am a big fan of Ayurvedic Medicine and a huge fan of the Healing Gardens. Dr Ram and Sujata are very welcoming and caring hosts whenever I attend a Yoga class, a lecture, healing services and special events such as their upcoming Ayurvedic Detoxification Retreat. I have attended one of their retreats in the past and was glad I did. I am looking very forward to the PanchaKarma Retreat coming up at the end of March in Ojai.
Sujata and Dr. Ram are dedicated and passionate about what they do and it is so healing and comforting to be around them. They have full faith in Ayurveda and it is so reassuring. The Center is set up well and very comfortable
I’ve had ECZEMA and used steroids and other medications my entire life until my eczema got out of control from head to toes and the meds weren’t working anymore.
I had not choice but to look for alternative measures when doctors and dermatologists could only prescribe more detrimental drugs to suppress my immune system. They gave me a life sentence in prison indicating that I “can’t go here, wear this, do that, etc.” and I’d be on drugs the rest of my life. I essentially had to live in a bubble. No thank you! There’s gotta be a better way to manage my eczema.
I quit my job and searched full-time for a natural solution. I found certain organic foods, exercises, meditations, and other holistic approaches help heal eczema. Those things helped but The Healing Gardens truly pulled it all together for me and helped me heal and manage my eczema holistically.
Dr. Ram and Sujata are not only holistic healers using the mind, body, and consciousness but they are inspiring healing coaches. You need a great healing team to support and guide you through this process of detoxing your body of the drugs and toxins. Their staff is just as phenomenal as them.
I enjoyed their treatments during Panchakarma detox, which included warm oil massages, yoga sessions, delicious healing meals prepared by Sujata, and many other activities that involved healing the mind and body. These treatments may seem obscure but Ayurveda has been practiced for 5000 years and continues its lineage with Deepak Chopra, M.D. and Dr. Oz endorsing this practice today.
Dr. Ram and Sujata always make themselves available by telephone, e-mail, and in person. I’m always greeted with a compassionate hug when I see them.
If you have eczema, it is POSSIBLE to heal from it. Dr. Ram specializes in skin and joint issues, among many other conditions. They can help you live a more joyful life doing the things you love to do.
I’m grateful I made life long “friends” with healers who authentically care about my well-being and longevity.
THANK YOU THE HEALING GARDENS for freeing me and giving me my life back.
