Dr. Aparna is probably the only authentic ayurveda specialist in MA. She is a careful listener with a calm and assuring personality. While inspiring hope that even a chronic health condition can be improved, she explained that because the body has endured it for decades, one should not expect instant cures. She devised a regimen of diet and lifestyle changes that were practical for me given my unique schedule. She also recommended some herbs and therapies. Her genuine concern for her patient's health comes across in every one of her gestures. The therapists who perform various treatments such as abhyanga and swedana are also well trained and equally adept at making the patient feel comfortable. In one short month, I already feel some beneficial effects from the herbs and other therapies even though I have not followed the recommendation for diet and lifestyle changes perfectly. I am grateful that such a holistic, authentic ayurveda practice exists within my reach.
