I felt at home because of her nurturing personality. My improved sense of well-being has been the biggest change that I have noticed. She helped me to become more aware of my body and as a result I learned to feel my energy flowing. She also taught me techniques, which I still use regularly that help me to deal with daily stress. I think her multidisciplinary approach can help people in ways that other one-track therapies cannot. I strongly recommend Nayna’s work

I’m interested in what the body does with emotions which have not been expressed. What happens in your body when the things you want to say can’t be said? When you have to hide how you feel?
