"I would like to like to say a big ‘Thank You' to the therapists and doctors of the Chopra Center for successfully getting me back to work! As a 54-year-old computer guy, I'd been through a tough time, with months of 20-hour workdays. I was unable to continue using a computer mouse due to the pain and increasingly limited mobility from overwork of my right hand and elbow. A similar work crunch a few years ago had already left me with a damaged left hand and elbow, so in addition to the discomfort, I was faced with being physically unable to do my job.
My doctor prescribed a painkiller, but although it dulled the pain and let me sleep, did nothing for my mobility. For New Years my wife checked us into the Chopra Center for the Perfect Health Panchakarma program for a general health and de-stress break – not actually for my hand problems. Still, after the first day's treatment the pain had largely gone from my right hand, and by the end of the program I had pain-free mobility in both hands and elbows.
I felt the excellent massage therapy helped the most, but this is a balanced program and it may well be the combination of treatments that made it so effective for me. The therapies are certainly powerful, pleasant, and healing, and the therapists are very caring, giving people."
"It has been 8 months now since I spent a week with the Chopra family in Carlsbad ― eight months of meditation, improved diet, some yoga (I start and stop), and a continuous increase of magic in my life. I may sometimes slip on the diet and exercise, but I do not compromise on the meditation. It is my salvation and part of the sacred manner in which I start and end each day. I wanted to thank you for your teachings and your support. I have come to accept those 'intrusive' thoughts as 'things I can come back to later' as I usher them along and reclaim the stillness. There is so much in that silent space, nothing and everything. Namaste."
"It helped me find the joy I lost this last year while ill."
"I was in physical and emotional pain when I came to the Chopra Center. I am leaving with a new sense of self, a new perspective on life, and a calm in my soul that I felt only as a child. Thank you."
“I loved every second of this experience. This is the most healing time I’ve had in my adult life. God bless all of you!”
"I walked into the Chopra Center not knowing what to expect. My body was telling me I needed a change. After participating in the Perfect Health Program, I walked out a brand-new me ― mentally, physically, and spiritually. I continue my growth, daily. I highly recommend The Chopra Center to help guide those seeking a higher sense of wellbeing."
