What Our Clients Say
While experiencing chronic ear, nose, head throat pain and congestion, I researched my local area for an ayurdedic practioner. I came across Dr. Aruna Patki in Concord, NC which is about 20 minutes from where I live in Charlotte, NC. I initially wanted to go in for a couple of treatments; the herbal eye bath, and the sinus treatment. After a consultation, I decided to go in for the 7 day Panchakarma program. I was suffering not only from sinus issues, but my entire body was full of inflammation, sluggish elimination, and a heightened sense of anxiety and depression. My first massage treatment was relaxing, but the Sweden steam therapy gave my body internal warmth that I had not felt before. I knew then that I had found the treatment plan that was going to make a definite improvement in my body. As I went through the different treatments like third eye therapy; cardiac care heart wellness basti, and other chakra healing, my whole body became lighter. My most intense reaction in my treatment was the cardiac care basti. During my treatment I felt a great sense of anxiety come over me, and I began to cry and didn’t want to finish my steam therapy. I was embarrassed but was reassured by Dr. Patki that this reaction was not unusual. Different body areas release different energies. Because I have suffered from PTSD since 1996 while serving in the military, I spent more time on synthetic medications, than on healing. The overwhelming feeling of anxiety was a release of years of fear and sadness. My nasal and eye treatments calmed my initial complaints of sinus issues. Dr. Patki’s passion for people, wellness, and the power of self-healing through ayurdedic is contagious and encouraging. Ayurveda is about reawaking the natural healing power of our digestive fires. Strengthening our digestive systems is crucial to long-term health, and finding an experienced practitioner and student of Ayurveda like Dr Patki, is a true blessing. Understanding our eating habits, the importance of being responsible for what we put into our mouth, empowers us to make a crucial difference in how we detoxify our bodies and our lives. Dr. Patki has written two books that I purchased titled Healing the Mind Body and Soul. Both of these books reflect a simple and easy to read guide to the ayurdedic principles taught by Dr. Patki . With an eager desire to share this important information, the formatting of the books is off, but please look past that and focus on the content, the information is mind changing and informative. As a retired military female, I’ve always had a strong body, but I realized strong doesn’t mean healthy. I would change some things about my experience. First, I would write down what I expect to achieve through Pranchakarma. I would set aside the days of treatment as downtime (clear my schedule of other appointments), and I would be more mindful of easing back into a healthier eating and exercising routine. I didn’t completely understand what I was getting into at first, but on the back side of it now, I would like to do it over again with the knowledge I have now. We live in a terribly toxic world, we eat and feed out families’ toxic food, and we don’t realize how awful we feel until we feel better. Let Dr. Patki guide you to better health and wellness. The best investment we can make is an investment in our health and wellness. I expect this to be an annual practice in my life forever. Let me not forget one of my most favorite perks of my program was that Dr. Patki cooked my meals for me for 7 days! The food was amazing and I didn’t even realize my entire 7 day diet was vegetarian!
When chronic or acute health challenges come along you are up against the pharmaceutical company and the doctors. Your mind doesn't function the same. You feel stuck and disconnected from the world. I felt that way for a while and had no idea what to do until I met Aruna Patki, a profound healer and teacher. Early 2016, I was facing a few health challenges that were keeping me confined in the house. I assumed if I eat right, they will go away. My health got worse. I started other routes of healing such as accupuncture, homeopathy, and western medicine but nothing was changing. It was becoming a greater challenge trying to find the right combination of therapies. I spend thousands of dollars over 3 years. Finding it to be the worse roller coaster ever. I was getting more and more hopeless and sad within me even though I never showed it on the outside. I was strong and tried not to care about what others thought but I did care. One thing I had never really took into consideration was Auyerveda, a 5000 year old ancient indian healing practice that heals the body inside and out. Because I knew it was an intense process. I was looking for easy way out. I didnt want to change my eating habits. That was my biggest challenge. Until I ended up with a Kidney stone early 2019 and the doctor wanted to perform an invasive procedure. This is when I got my act together. I was guided towards Ayurveda instantly. The moment I was told by the doctor I sought out an ayurvedic practitioner in my area. I was determined not to confine myself to western medicine. That is how I met this wonderful, caring and kind human being who truly cared about others well-being. I started a 10 day Detox and she was always there for me through all the challenges I was facing. She taught me self care. I had been preaching self care and going within but didnt really discover the meaning of it til I met Aruna. Aruna is brilliant. Her dedication to the human body, mind and soul brings clarity within each person and a level of enlightenment within. Going through the 10 days of healing was is a beautiful journey I would recommend to anyone who is tired of feeling stuck, tired of taking pills, and wanting to find a cure. Ayurveda is the best thing I discovered. It changed my life because I had the right person guiding me. My sincere gratitude goes to you Dr. Aruna Patki for showing me the path to greater well-being.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to Aruna Patki and Ayurveda Healing Spa. I have been suffering with tinnitus for a few months following an ear infection...with very little relief in spite of trying many treatment modalities including acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, and conventional medicine. A forward thinking physician suggested I consult with Aruna, who made time for me in spite of her very busy schedule. We focused on each stage of Ayurveda's healing process beginning with Dinacharya, including asana, pranayama and meditation. The abhyanga and shirodhara were very beneficial - as was the steam detox following body work sessions. Aruna also taught me to eat and even cook aurvedically which I have been able to integrate into my daily routine. Aruna's skillful interventions have helped to lessen my symptoms, hopelessness and anxiety, for which I am forever grateful.
Having exhausted western medicine with a chronic sinus issue, it was time to look for a more holistic avenue. In my search for a certified and licensed Ayurveda practitioner, I found Aruna Patki online. She was prompt in response to my email inquiry and very flexible with her schedule to accommodate my daily schedule. Based on the initial interview, she recommended the most suitable program for my body type and needs. During the weeklong detox program, I enjoyed a daily massage, targeted yoga and breathing instructions and a daily bag full of great tasting lunch and breakfast. The interaction with her quickly reveals that she knows what she is doing. I also had the pleasure of joining one of her cooking classes. She makes it look so easy with a contagious happy attitude resulting in great tasting food. The positive impact on my health and overall wellbeing was noticeable rather quickly. She can guide you through the program but you will have to take that first step.
After visiting the Ayurveda Healing Spa, I realized I haven’t experienced anything quite like it before. I have visited many different types of spas through my international travels but nothing like the experience at Ayurveda Healing Spa of Concord NC, Aruna Patki provided. Combining an evaluation, food choices and therapeutic massages, it really focuses on the entire person. I recognized traditional massage techniques, but also some very different ones as well. She has a very distinctive touch, light, yet deep so you can feel muscle movement. With a background in hospitality and teaching classes in spa management, it is always very interesting and exciting to learn about the different treatments and techniques so I can share them with my students. I was also amazed that even after several days, I feel a difference in my wellbeing, more clarity, focus, brightness. I am anxious to learn and experience more with Aruna Patki’s help….Will recommend by heart.
" Being a doctor of homeopathy myself, it gave me a glimpse of how holistic your practice is.....'to offer and heal the individual and not the disease' resonates with homeopathic principle of healing as well. I've personally experienced great positive and spiritual growth through your sessions of 'Panchakarma' and am forever grateful for the friendly guidance that has aligned my life back to happy and healthy! Thanks Aruna Patki of Ayurveda Healing spa ,Concord NC for your guidance from the bottom of my heart!"
How can I ever thank you? You have changed me and my life more than you could ever know. When I first came to you I had no idea that my healing would be so great or so swift, but such is the way of God, who definitely works through you. Thank you.
