I came to Archana in December of 2016 with 3 types of psoriasis. Through her guidance of Ayurvedic medicine and Panchakarma diet, my psoriasis cleared up by 75% in 6 months. As we went into June and did the traditional Panchakarma, the biggest benefit was that I went from being a chronic insomniac for 40 plus years to being able to get 7 hours of sleep a night. I am grateful to Archana and for the healing that occurred while working with her.
I recently received Panchakarma treatment from Dr Rao and it was amazing. It's almost feel like I got a new life. I have more energy, concentration, clarity and overall I feel healthy. She explains the root cause of the issue and makes you understand the reason for your illness. She gave me a personalized diet plan as per my constitution. I have been seeing Dr Rao for almost 3 years now and can't say enough good things about her treatment. I also received pre natal and Post natal massage from her which always left me feeling relaxed and made my pregnancy most enjoyable time for me. I have recommended her to my sister who has come from another state to receive her Panchakarma treatment.
I highly recommend Dr Rao. I had high blood pressure, hypertension and tremendous stress over the past few years. I came to see Dr Rao to help me with my health issues. I've been now seeing her for past few months and I could not be more impressed and pleased with the results of her treatment. She is highly knowledgable and addresses your specific concerns. She prescribed Ayurvedic herbs , a special diet and nutrition, and meditation rituals for me. About two months after seeing her my blood pressure has been consistently perfect. I am no longer on any medications for blood pressure. She is an amazing doctor and I will continue to recommend friends and family to see her for any type of health issue.
I have been seeing Dr Rao for the past couple of months and my chronic back pain is much better now. She has done a series of spinal oil treatments called spinal basti on my spine and that has helped in reducing the inflammation in the muscles around my spine a lot. Apart from that she also gives Ayurvedic herbs to help improve the immune system and digestion, to promote overall health. I have had all kinds of treatments for my back pain in the last seven years but this is the first time that I have experienced a marked difference in my pain. Earlier I was not able to travel much, but after starting her treatment I went to Italy for about 15 days and had a great time.
The reviews on Dr. Rao's website mainly describe what a skillful massage therapist and healer she is. While I completely agree with those reviews, Dr. Rao offers much more than therapeutic massage to anyone willing to open themselves up to Ayurvedic medicine and healing. I began seeing Dr. Rao for high blood pressure, back pain, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) after seeing how much she was able to help my wife with a number of issues. By the end of the first month, my blood pressure had reduced to the point where I was able to cut the dosage of my regular meds in half and still have much better readings than before. My back pain has also lessened considerably and I have much more freedom of movement. The big surprise was how much more soundly I sleep and how much more energy I have generally. We're still working on the tinnitus, but it's been a very long term condition, so I didn't expect quick results, particularly since western doctors have told me to learn to live with it. So, if you're interested in an absolutely excellent therapeutic and healing massage, I can recommend Dr. Rao without hesitation. As the other reviewers said, she is highly skilled and able to zero in on whatever issues you have and leave you feeling totally relaxed. But if you're willing to look at Ayurvedic medicine more broadly and follow Dr. Rao's recommendations regarding diet, herbs, stretching, pressure points, etc., you'll experience what Ayurveda has to offer and the full benefit of this amazing healer.
Dr. Rao is an excellent Ayurvedic physician. She is thorough in her initial consultation, listens carefully and offers tremendous insight into the age old practice of Ayurveda. Her customized treatment programs are holistic including diet and nutrition, herbs, movement and massage, all targeted for an individual’s constitution. Her service is very professional and her being is pleasant and healing. Dr. Rao has helped me understand the root cause of my chronic neck and shoulder pain which years of physical therapy and therapeutic massage could not relieve. In doing so, she has finally helped me break the cycle of worry, stress and tension that I knew was contributing to my pain. Dr. Rao made some adjustments my diet, prescribed herbs, taught me daily practices, suggested specific yoga postures and used her multiple massage therapies on my sore muscles. After several months in Dr. Rao’s care, my neck and shoulder pain is significantly reduced, my digestion has improved, my sleep is less disrupted, my brain is less foggy and my migraines are under control. In short, I feel better than I have in years, thanks to Dr. Rao!
Dr Archana has been amazingly helpful guiding my healing process and I am deeply thankful for her detailed attention, committed and loving care. I highly recommend her for anyone, especially if you are dealing with chronic issues and have not found relief through conventional medicine, or need to complement your treatment. I arrived at her office feeling exhausted and diagnosed with Anemia and Tarlov cyst, which caused a lot of pain along my back. She helped me to identify my Dosha and recommended a special diet for it. She recommended Panchakarma as a therapy for deep cleansing of the whole body, it was a life changing experience and the start of my healing process. The Dosha diet and Panchakarma helped me to stop the inflammation of my tissues, as a result the joint and muscle pain and stiffness has been reduced significantly. Her prescription of Ayurvedic herbal medicines, oils and gees, has been helping me to balance my hormones, digestion, reduce the acidity in my body, allow the absorption of Iron, and improve my mood, energy and sleep. She also has been doing continuous hands on therapies for my back and knee, I have a meniscus tear. She has done Basti in my lower, middle and upper back to reduce pain, nourish and lubricate the spine. She has also done Janu Basti for my knee and it has reduced inflammation and pain. After those, she has done massage and cupping which has been also very effective to release pain accumulated through years.
After searching for different doctors to cure my severe headaches for about 5 years, I finally came across Dr. Archana Rao. It was amazing how quickly she found the root cause of my condition. I had headaches 24/7 before. However, when the treatment was finally over, I could rarely ever feel any pain. I 100% recommend Dr. Archana. She definitely changed my life and no doubt she will change yours too.
got an Abhyanga massage and it was so soothing and relaxing. She definitely knew what she was doing. I highly recommend! I also got some Ayurvedic products that I am excited to use.
I worked with Dr Rao for menstrual headaches all remotely as I am on the east coast. She took the time to understand my history and condition and recommended Ayurvedic medicine. She shared resources where I can buy the medicines. I had to reach back out to her as one of the medicated ghee she recommended was not available and she quickly was able to recommend one that was available. I have been taking the medicine she suggested for 3 cycles now. I have to say, I have been cured of the headaches and also see a more easier cycle overall. I am very happy with the results this quick. Even though my whole experience was remote, it was like I have met Dr Rao since she made the approach best suited for me. Thanks for the great treatment!!
My child had acute Asthma and we were taking prescription medicine.Despite a daily dose and the meds being a mild steroid, the situation did not change.We made umpteen number of visits to the Allergy &Asthma specialists (doctors of course 😊) with changed meds which did not improve the situation. I did not want to put my child through the steroid meds at such a small age. I was looking for alternative options and found Archana and her Ayutherapy..Talking to Archana felt right at home. Ayurveda focuses on the root of the problem rather than treat the immediate symptoms ( which is usually like a short term goal). She was meticulous in her approach by first determining the Body type Thoroughly questioning the food habits, Social and active lifestyle of the child Changes in food habits and also what foods affect the health for a given body type Administering and prescribing pills and tonics that are natural and the right doses So far we have been seeing positive results for the past 2 years (touch wood) and the best part is that she responds to text and calls and advices accordingly. I definitely recommend Ayutherapy to anyone who trust alternative medicine like Ayurveda [Ayu - Life, Veda -study] for symptoms or even for massages (women only - injury (gym) or post-natal). She does a fantastic job of determining the knots and would find relief immediately.
Dr. Rao worked with me for digestive issues. She suggested Panchakarma at home, which is difficult to follow. She guided me every step of the way and gave me detailed instructions. She also customized the treatment based on my feedback. I'm truly grateful for her help and will not hesitate to reach out to her if needed.
I had a full hip replacement 2 years ago followed by a car accident and also was diagnosed with osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis this year. I could barely walk; I have a job that requires me standing 8 hours a day. My hands have arthritis so bad, my thumbs started to have funny shapes and my hand hurt a lot. My friend Jaine suggested I see Archana Rao at Ayutherapy. I started seeing Dr. Rao 4 weeks ago and the very first time, I was able to walk away without pain. My walking used to be like if my shoes were too small for me and my feet hurt so much; now after 4 weeks of 2 times per week treatment, I walk and almost dance and run without looking funny- The massage is not the traditional massage; (at least mine) I have low tolerance to pain, but Dr. Rao once she works her magic in an area, she places hot sand bags with herbs to calm the area. She also added herbal medication to help... some black little ayurvedic pills to help my arthritis and hip pain, I didn't want to take them at first, afraid of the unknown. She insisted I take them because they would help - now I quickly ask her to order my next month supply to make sure I don't go with out them. If you are having similar pain I highly recommend her. She has the patience of an angel and passion to cure or help people and she continues to amaze me. Check her web site and if you have questions about my results, please contact me.
I was looking for some Post natal Massage when a friend suggested Archana. I am glad that I did that. She is wonderful both professionally as well as person. I had stiffness in my left hand after delivery which she corrected with simple massage. She provided me tips and medicine for me & my daughter. Full body Massage was too good with herbal oil. She even worked on my stretch marks which has now been reduced a lot. She also worked on my neck & back also though I didn't ask for it. Her suggestions were very helpful. I am so thankful to her. I am looking forward for massage again on monthly basis. Thanks a lot Archana for everything.
Archana helped me so much! I can’t say enough good things about her and Ayurvedic medicine in general. I was treated for peri menopause issues and it healed me. Archana’s individual plan for me including Ayurvedic herbs and panchakarma truly made an incredible difference in my life. My symptoms completely resolved and I gained invaluable knowledge specific to my individual body and make-up. Archana was always available, very attentive, extremely knowledgeable, and truly passionate regarding her craft. I’m so grateful that I went out on a limb and tried Ayurveda Therapy for myself. Thank you! Thank you!
After 1.5 years of different hospital visits, physiotherapy, acupuncture and so many others therapies for my very bad back finally found out about this place and the Ayurvedic doctor, I wanted to give it a try as my last resource. I am so very, very glad I did, my pain reduced 70%. My life style got much better. Thank You Dr.Archana for guiding and helping through every step of the process, I lost 18 pounds with very well guided Panchakarma therapy in 3 weeks. The overall pain reduced and in parallel my skin issues got cleared and my eating habits got better, able to sleep peacefully as there is not much pain. Happy overall. I would highly recommend to follow all the steps Dr.Archana says and everything can be resolved.
Dr. Archana helped me with treating the root cause of my long standing allergy problem. Her treatments help reduce the imbalance in a patient's body type over time. In addition to the Ayurvedic herbs, she also suggested some small changes in diet that helped treat the allergies. She is a very knowledgeable and is passionate about Ayurveda. Highly recommended Dr Archana for anyone looking for Ayurvedic approach.
My first visit to Archana was in August of 2018. At that time my TSH Thyroid was at 10.23. The normal level should be between .04-5.00. As you can see mine was way too high. I couldn't take the Doctors meds because of the side effects they caused me. A dear doctor friend of mine suggested I go to see Archana. I gave her a call and started seeing her on a regular bases. She had me take a blood test after a month of treatments. My thyroid TSH went from 10.23 to 4.93. The last test I had was 10/15/2019 and my TSH was 4.3. Since your Thyroid plays such an important roll in your bodies functions and as Archana has brought it down into normal range I am feeling really great. Ayutherapy works on making your whole body work as one. Archana treats you from your head to your toes. She brings your body into a whole working unit. BUT you must work together with her. Its what you eat, the exercise she has you do, your mental state of mind and much more that she has taught me. She has helped me put my body back together so it works with me and not against me. Oh by the way I walked with a cane on my first visit with her. This summer my husband and I went for many 1 to 2 mile walks!!!! I sleep all night by learning about sleep patterns. I have lost weight!! I didn't lose weight because of my thyroid. I CAN CLEAN MY WHOLE HOUSE WITHOUT ANY HELP! (Big deal to me). And much much more.... Well thanks for reading my review hope I helped.Archana Rao is a true Gem one I will cherish for the rest of my life.
For the past 2-3 years, I have been having lower back pain which also extends into my right leg. One of my friends referred Dr. Archana Rao, so scheduled an appointment with her. At the beginning of my first visit, I needed to fill out several forms regarding my current health issue as well as my past medical history. During the visit, she did a complete body massage and worked on the sore muscles that were causing me pain. She also prescribed me a few medicines. Since then, I have had several more appointments with Dr. Archana. She has always made me feel comfortable during my visits. Though my body was often sore for a few hours after her massages, I did feel much better afterwards. As per Dr. Archana’s advice, I have taken Panchakarma and Kati Basti treatments with her. I have also been taking the medication and doing the exercises and yoga that she has suggested for me. Over the course of my visits with Dr. Archana, I felt like she sincerely put in all her effort to help me. Before I went to her, I couldn’t sit on the floor with my legs crossed even for a few minutes. Her treatment not only gave me increased flexibility, but also helped me work on strengthening my muscles. Even in between my appointments with her, she has been responding to my questions and concerns via WhatsApp. In conclusion, I would most definitely recommend Dr. Archana Rao as an understanding and professional Ayurvedic doctor, who has done a phenomenal job of helping me manage my lower back and right leg pain
I first met Dr. Rao in April 2018 after becoming frustrated with common treatments due to chronic pain and other conditions resulting from MS. I’ve seen Dr. Rao at least 3x/month since then and have been very pleased with her ayurvedic treatments. In particular she has helped relieve insomnia, skin issues, pain, numbness and tingling sensations in my limbs, and headaches. Dr. Rao is extremely knowledgeable, and I often leave appointments with a wealth of information regarding my current condition and solid, actionable steps to take to better my health and wellbeing. She is extremely courteous in her manner and hospitality. I feel at ease and in good hands and am very comfortable with her prescriptions and treatments.
