My Story

I am a certified Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda Practitioner, Reflexologist, Holy Fire® III Karuna® Reiki Master, and Esthetician. I have been a lifelong learner. After graduating from the University of Mumbai with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in microbiology, I was drawn towards healing therapies and continued my training and practice in several modalities like Esthetics, Reflexology, Spa Therapies, Reiki, and IET, close to three decades. I taught Esthetics and Spa Therapies in a college in Saskatoon for some time.

Growing up in India, many Ayurvedic practices were a way of life. I learned simple Ayurvedic home remedies from my mother, aunt, and grandmother. My father was a renowned physician and surgeon but he always treated his patients as a whole individual and not just the symptoms. 

My health crisis led me to rediscover Ayurveda and for the past 10 years, I have been studying and practicing this ancient healing system. I have been fortunate to receive training from a world-renowned Ayurvedic practitioner Vaidya R. K. Mishra of the Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda (SVA) lineage. I learned how to do Nadi pariksha (pulse assessment) along with Transdermal Marma treatment from Vaidya Mishra. I am so grateful for this ancient knowledge. It has deepened my level of understanding of how the body works.

I currently offer Ayurvedic consultations and therapies based on my SVA training. I educate people on how to cook authentic Ayurvedic tridoshic meals and the importance of food combinations and the use of spices. I teach Ayurvedic Dinacharya and seasonal practices that promote health and balance.

 I am a Holy Fire® III Karuna® Reiki Master and offer energy healings to people and pets all over the world. My Reiki training has speeded my spiritual growth. I enjoy teaching Reiki Courses and now teach them online. I am a Professinal Member of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT).

Ayurveda and Reiki are a potent combo to heal oneself on all levels.

My goal is to continue learning and sharing Ayurveda and Reiki, help new practitioners establish their practice, and inspire students to continue learning this ancient knowledge and practice. I am a Professional Member of the Ayurveda Association of Canada and serve as a Chair for the Manitoba Chapter for Ayurveda Association of Canada.

About Vaidya (Dr) Ramakant Mishra

Vaidya Rama Kant Mishra was a world-renowned expert in Ayurveda, specializing in Dermatology. An award-winning Ayurvedic physician, formulator, researcher, and educator, Vaidya Mishra hailed from a long line of Ayurvedic healers whose history and origins are said to go back 5000 years! In the ancient book, the Bhavishya Purana, it is documented that a group of Ayurvedic healers from the island of Shaka came to visit India at the behest of Lord Krishna, to cure his son, Samba, of leprosy. These ayurvedic healers remained in India and their lineage flourished, practicing Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda or SVA. The SVA tradition has continued uninterrupted, from generation to generation over the past several thousand years, remaining whole, unbroken, and unaffected despite many foreign invasions.


Born to a renowned ayurvedic healer, Vaidya Kameshwar Mishra, Vaidya Rama Kant Mishra’s whole life was immersed in practice, research, and study of Ayurveda. After graduating from Bihar's SYNA Ayurvedic College in 1974 and earning the title of GAMS (Graduate of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery), Vaidya Mishra’s education included additional intensive seven-year training with his father. He toured several European countries, the USA, and Japan in the nineties before settling in the United States in 1996. He established the Prana Centre in Los Angeles, California, where he practiced SVA and offered consultations, workshops, courses, and conferences. Along with his wife, Dr. Melina Takvorian Mishra, Vaidya Mishra established two companies, Chandi LLC and Adishakti Inc. Chandi LLC is the exclusive manufacturer of Vaidya Mishra’s Pranic formulations and Adishakti educates professionals and the general public in the ancient, highly effective science of SVAyurveda.  


Vaidya Mishra’s profound knowledge and experience with the western physiology is grounded in many years of study and consultation with thousands of patients. He pioneered the approach of adapting the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, without losing its integrity, to the modern physiology. He has written new chapters for modern-day Ayurvedic practitioners. As a result, his practitioners have highly successful SVA practices.


He co-authored the book "The Answer to Cancer" and was the forward author of "Women's Best Medicine for Menopause through Maharishi Ayurveda" by Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf. His articles have appeared in several health magazines. His television appearances include: Live on ABC, New York; News on NBC and ABC, Total Health Talk, Los Angeles, and Breakfast Television on CITY-TV Toronto, Canada. 


Vaidya Mishra’s most profound legacy is the SVA Transdermal Marma System® and his unique transdermal and transmucosal Ayurvedic formulas. The SVA Transdermal Marma System and SVA herbal formulas have facilitated incredible healing for thousands of people around the world. Vaidya Mishra simplified the complex science of Marma and Nadi pariksha (Ayurvedic Pulse Assessment). He created many unique protocols that target specific conditions and imbalances, making the multi-faceted SVA Transdermal Marma System® one of the most powerful healing modalities in practice.
