My passion is help you to resolve your pain and health issues effectively and efficiently. By integrating Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine I am able to treat different patients with a variety of conditions and provide natural remedies to activate mind-body’s innate ability to heal.
I am a Doctor of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine and teacher of Ayurveda and CranioSacral Work. I earned my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the prestigious Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California (PCOM) and interned at UCSD Cancer Center. I am licensed by the California Acupuncture Board and certified designated a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Born in India, I have spent over thirty years studying and practicing healing work in the lineage of the Siddha tradition. Traveled extensively through the Himalayan regions of Tibet, Nepal, and India, to learn meditative and healing practices.
My specialties include pain management, chronic fatigue, and longevity support. This includes treatment of chronic back pain, migraines, insomnia, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, autoimmune disorders, allergies, stress and lifestyle and diet related imbalances. If you suffer from fatigue and or pain or stress, give me a try, and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Acupuncture (Chinese Medicine) and Ayurveda (India) are ancient medicines of Asia. Both medicine are based on a view that all phenomenon are pulsating rhythm called Breath Of Shakti or PranaVayu or PranaShakti or Laya or Vak , also called Qi in Daoism and “Breath of Life” in CranioSacral work. When the rhythms of prana or qi is imbalanced and we find ourselves ungrounded, unfocused, stressed, overly emotional, “out of mind”, struggling to sleep or rest, in pain and dis-ease. We can harmonize our prana or Qi using acupuncture, diet, herbs, essential oils, bodywork therapies, meditation, and by cultivating serene stillness in our heart.
“The round shape of our head emulates heaven. The square shape of our feet emulates earth. Heaven has the four seasons, the five movements, the nine divisions, and the 366 days. Human beings have four limbs, five organ (zhang) systems, nine orifices, and 366 joints. Heaven has wind, rain, cold, and (summer) heat, while human temperament has ‘taking’, ‘giving’, joy, and anger. Our gallbladder functions like clouds, the lung like mist, the liver like wind, the kidney like rain, and the spleen like thunder. All of these are the union of Heaven and Earth made manifest within the human being.”

Thank you for
your kind words!
"A session with Prana leaves me feeling physically and mentally balanced. In the mirror I can see the difference and I feel relaxed with clarity and inner peace. Between his extensive knowledge of Craniosacral, Ayurvedic, and TCM, just to name a few... his tool box is endless. Each treatment is unique and wonderful. Prana is a true Healer." ~Linda M"
If there are truly any words to accurately describe a 'healing experience' with Prana it would be "Magically Transformational", not only is Prana well versed and knowledgeable as an authentic, energetic healer. He is truly a compassionate Soul, allowing One to openly experience the benefits of feeling well supported and safe to dwell deep within the One's personal healing space. Prana holds the Sacredness of healing and embodies the path of a True Healer." -- Belinda P.
"Prana has an incredible gift; matched only by his invaluable knowledge, experience, and willingness to help. He has an incredible dedication to his craft. Prana is able to communicate with energy flowing through the body and is able to enhance the healing process. I am amazed at the responsiveness and results he has helped me achieve. So much so, that when I was faced with more issues, I moved myself and family back to the San Diego area to receive treatment from him. If you can, benefit from Prana’s knowledge and experience." ~Ginger S.
“When was the last time your mind was at rest? CranioYoga releases muscles deep in my body to reconnect with serenity and calm. No ‘work’ on my part except to let go and allow Prana and Shazia to guide me gently back to the center.” ~Debbe M.
The depth and humility from which Prana shares his knowledge is something I have rarely experienced. As a healer of many disciplines, his integrity and scope is unparalleled. ~Misha M.
