"I’ve been suffering for many years the pain and discomfort of two slipped discs on my lower back. I was managing that with yoga and lifestyle. However, days ago I had a painful episode when I tried to lift up a little boy. Suddenly I fell down and because of the strong pain I couldn’t get up for some minutes. I went to the hospital, after a high dose of painkillers which made me feel sick and throw up, I was able to walk again, but my spine looked bent to my right side and the pain was still present even in the softest movements. The next day, I went to see Dr. Rafeena. After her evaluation about my condition, she did a secure procedure to amend the position of my spine pulling from my legs. With three continuous days of therapies with warm herbal oils on my back called “Pichu”, soft massage and steam-additional to the intake of Ayurvedic herbal tea and pills- I was able to get back to my normal routine only five days after the incident. Many thanks to Dr Rafeena and Ayurveda.”
'I felt lighter and have a greater sense of happiness in the days that followed (Consultation with Dr Rafeena and Ayurvedic detox). It is as if I have broken through an invisible barrier to the other side and I have been released”
‘I was beyond impressed with my experience with Dr Rafeena…I was down with H pylori infection soon after my delivery and it was her efficiency and courtesy towards it and her treatment made my disease disappear..She was very calm, kind and considerate…She always had that problem solving attitude towards everything. She is that 1 person I would always run to for any help…’
‘The treatment experience with Dr Rafeena had a profoundly calming and uplifting effect on me that lasted for days. My sleep and hence energy levels improved'.
“Ayurveda is, on the one hand quite simple, and on the other, complex. Unlike western medicine, responsibility for one's own health rests with the individual. This can prove quite confronting especially for many westerners accustomed to the primacy of the doctor. However, under the care of doctor Rafeena, I have a greater appreciation of how my thoughts and actions influence my health and that of others, and a greater awareness of how to correct imbalance before it turns into disease.”
“Meeting Dr Rafeena was a life changing experience. She not only recommended treatments for the present illness, but also advised how to prevent them in future. Her kind and empathetic words itself act as a form of healing. Soon she became our family physician. Every day we remember her through the simple, but effective daily regimes to be healthy!”
“I had a wonderful time with Dr Rafeena. The training I received was excellent. I had one to one practical training as well as theory sessions. The course was designed to my individual needs, and I wish I could have spent a longer time with such wonderful people. I had (the consultation and) experienced all the treatments and then was shown how to prepare for and carry them out myself. An excellent experience Thank you!"
".More specifically recognizing her (Dr Rafeena) as an excellent professional in her classes and follow up in the practise of our stay. Thanks for her ability to convey content and generous attention given all our class that time. My obeisance and hope success always. Thanks and love.”
"My experience in India was so great. Just two weeks that completely changed my life and my vision of the world. I often remember those days in India as one of the best in my life. A great experience. The smiles of the people and their kindness. Also I really really enjoyed the food there. And the massages and treatments (as suggested by doctors after treatments) helped me a lot in my health and my well being. They gave me a lot of good energy and the positiveness I had lost....Dr Rafeena K, a young nice lady really involved in her job. A person that you know is doing her job with passion trying to promote all the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda and India for helping people. I really trusted her. Thank you so much for your labour!"
“I met Dr Rafeena when I received teachings and Ayurvedic therapies, and I could see during the theoretical and practical classes taught by her to her extensive knowledge on various topics. Thank you very much Dr Rafeena!”
"I'm a Yoga instructor in Brazil. I was a student of Dr. Rafeena when I did my training in Panchakarma/Ayurveda. I have great memories of the beautiful lessons she ministered with efficiency, kindness and even with a poetic way to comprehend the millennial hindu knowledge. I believe that Dr. Rafeena is the real representative of the Ayurvedic tradition of India. I miss your lessons and practice in Panchakarma. Congratulations Dr. Rafeena by the person and professional who you are!"
"I feel so blessed to have had Dr Rafeena Kidavintavida as one of my teachers. Her kindness and patience both as a teacher and a practitioner are exceptional and make a much grounded experience. I highly recommend her and hope that one day soon will again have the good fortune to work with her. "
‘As a teacher, Dr Rafeena has provided insightful advice and support and encouraged any decisions made. I am very pleased to be a part of such dynamic, accommodating and efficient lectures by her. She handled detailed works with skill and accuracy. She deeply cares about her students and we look to her for approval and guidance to which she was always ready to be. She has generated a warm and close rapport with us. Thank you so much for being so helpful and kind!’
“I am a patient of Dr Rafeena and have been having regular Ayurveda consultation sessions and treatments for the last 18 months. A few years ago I was diagnosed with neurological Lyme and I also became Parkinsonian and then soon after also developed a thyroid condition. My medical condition is considered chronic. I have spent the last five years trying many healing modalities and experimenting, under supervision, with the latest developments in natural supplements. Most things I found supportive and kept me alive and independent but when I started the Ayurveda way I felt I had finally come home. It just felt so natural. My body responded positively to the treatments right from the start. It just feels so nurturing. It is as if my body has its own intelligence and willingly surrenders to this type of treatment. And the treatment is also so personalised for what I need right now, which may be very different to even last week as my health was very unstable. Dr Rafeena is an Ayurveda doctor yet she is finely tuned in to the patient, I suspect through her training of the oldest healing modality known to us. She is an amazing diagnostician. She amazes me how acutely aware she is of changes in me from one session to another. But just as potent are her words of simple practical wisdom for me (which are never intrusive or an imposition but expressed with genuine care for her patient) which have as much of a healing effect on me as the physical treatments. The physical treatments themselves are gentle and energise the body; but not through force, rather through gentleness. These physical sessions coupled with Ayurveda herbs and at times powerful detoxification programs closely monitored by Dr Rafeena have seen me turn the corner health-wise. And I am now more hopeful that my body will continue to recover. Dr Rafeena is highly accomplished well beyond her years – and I should know for I have seen dozens of health practitioners. Yet she is so humble, sharing with me the knowledge and wisdom behind any Ayurveda instructions which she may give me. This makes my healing journey more empowering as I understand why I am doing something rather than just following instructions blindly. I am blessed to have found Dr Rafeena at this challenging time in my life.”
