After a full 10 day Panchakarma, I am blessed to have kicked in a valid approach to Health Restoration since I have embarked on this journey… Benefits have been numerous including a complete 180 degree turn away from daily cannabis abuse, a bonafide desire to use the increased new found energy to get my ass back in the gym, after a 10 year hiatus, the cleanse opened my path to see Spirit-based ideas .. raising my conscious to recognizing I am a co-creator with the Universe, which leads me know to a desire to eat fresh organic vegetables, meditate more, and the benefits keep unfolding in improved health, lower BMI, increased activity and improved relationships with others around me! Your training has forever changed my humble life to begin to fulfill my true potential in whatever lies ahead and I have you to thank Susan Wilesmith, as the VERY competent facilitator of this transformative process, I am humbled, grateful and on a better path.. you put something better inside of me… Thank you, Teacher, mahalo Susan.

“Susan is a spectacular woman who’s ability to explore Ayurveda is an experience that will leave you mystified and connected with your truth.  Susan’s ability to read the pulse was astounding.  She helped me understand and see what was going on in my life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, in a way that was meaningful and affirming.   I would recommend her to those seeking the best in Ayurvedic care.  I am now inspired to learn how to read pulses myself!”


TESTIMONIAL FROM –Janet Long, Massage Therapist, NJ, USA

“I am not sure which is the greater gift….Panchakarma or Susan. Both came to me at a time when I was reaching out for a kind of rebirth and clarity of purpose. I found that the Panchakarma not only purified my body, but also provided a means to let go of many other things that I was holding onto. I walked away, feeling lighter in body, mind and spirit. Susan herself is a treasure of a soul…her tender spirit guides the Panchakarma journey in a gentle healing way. I feel blessed that the Universe allowed me to enter this journey.”
