Student Testimonials

This use of Marma Therapy both for direct healing and to connect people everywhere with themselves is a powerfully vital part of the Ayurvedic medicine that aims to coax the mind/ body back into balance and toward full wellbeing. Seva's style is engaging. She teaches heartfully from a place of passion and deep knowing that comes from her many years of practical experience. I am thrilled to see her carry forward my dream of integrating ayurvedic bodywork into the massage and spa experience with her signature humility and wisdom. I believe this course will contribute to deepening the roots of ayurveda in our society and bring forth wonderful fruits.

- Melanie Sachs, Author Ayurvedic Spa and Ayurvedic Beauty Care

Seva is blessed with a true gift to heal. Learning these treatments, especially Marma Therapy is so transformational! For the therapist & client alike. When she worked on me, (to demonstrate) she opened energy channels that shared a noticeable flow in various parts of my body from one foot to a random spot on my chest and neck. The hours in her care brought up tender emotions I didn't know could be released in such a gentle way. Seva was professional and ensured my comfort throughout the treatment and the whole training. Never have I been able to lie that still for so long, or be so captivated with a modality- it's a testament to her skill set and intuition, which she speaks to often in her trainings. What a journey!

- Kris K, SLC, UT

Seva did Marma therapy with me applying pressure and massage to marma points on my body. At this point I began to let go of mental and physical pain and felt my emotional well-being stabilize. I wept, and then was left alone for 20 minutes to melt into this new found sense of positive energy flow and this deeply calming and spiritual experience.....Since then, I became her student because I wanted to learn this transformational modality and support others the way I was.
