After suffering for more than two years of a neuropathy and been treated with allopathic medicines, I was told that I would not be able to walk normally and that even my intellectual mind could have been affected. Just as I started to accepted it, I learned about Ayurveda’s neurological powers. As a result I thought to give myself a last chance and try… I have no words to describe my happiness, I am so grateful with the “Soukya team” !! Now I have sensations in one of my legs where it was only numbness.

Undoubtely you’re a gifted and bless team!! Thank you.

When I began to sense a pending heart for myself, I wrote to Dr.Mathai, contacted a travel agent, gt a visa and came. I expected to find excellent care and I met all expectation in addition I got and loved the total immersion in wellness that SOUKYA provided. I have been too many alternative healing , taken many therapies been in some of the finest spar’s non provide the total mind –body-sprit that have found in sSOUKYA. All of my senses have been fed, my heart issue diagnosed and the mind and spirit revived and my body lost nearly 10kgs in 32days and was never uncomfortably hungry. The massages and therapies produced 15.5 of lost flesh for a new look and the assimilation of cardiologist, lung specialist, dentistry , optometrist made this a TOTAL wellness experience. Dr Mathai even took time in coaching me on finding Americanized bathroomed dealing with allopathic doctors, and seeing to it I had a local loaner’s phone for doctor’s appointments in Bangalore. I have been nurtured in every aspect of my being. I have seen some come and not stay long enough to grasp that even great time is part of wellness here. If you are ready for healing you will find it here at SOUKYA”.
