Sacramento Center for Health and Healing
2131 Capitol Avenue, Suite 204
Sacramento, CA 95816

Our Center embraces the integrative, holistic health approach by treating the individual and not the disease. We begin this individualized process through an extensive one-on-one interaction, beginning with a thorough assessment and evaluation from an integrated viewpoint.

This initial integrated health appraisal utilizes various tools from conventional medicine to Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to give us a comprehensive picture of you. We not only examine your unique biochemical and energetic physiological blueprint, but we seek to discover your own particular set of beliefs, values, philosophy and spiritual orientation that define you and create the life that you live.

It is by considering all aspects of the patient’s life – body, mind and spirt – that we can view the person’s level of health in the context of their entire life story.

Let’s Be Partners in Healing

Collaborating with you in a partnership, we then use this information to design an integrated care program, aligning it to your particular needs and situation. We meet you where you are on your healing journey so that the treatments, strategies and healthy change solutions are feasible and attainable.

We incorporate a diverse range of healing modalities, to find the most effective approach that harnesses and supports the innate self healing potential that exists in everyone.

Life in Balance Ayurveda

Prevent ~ Recover ~ Renew

My passion for helping people overcome illness and chronic health problems started when caring for my sick mom as a small child. Since then, I’ve helped thousands of people look beyond the limits of their health challenges to work with and trust their body’s natural ability to heal. Besides individual counseling and treatments, I’ve taught Ayurveda and natural healing methods at medical schools, yoga teacher training and healing centers.

Before earning a Masters degree from the Florida Vedic College in 2002, I studied extensively in the United States and Asia, earning certifications in Ayurveda, Women’s Health, Fertility Awareness, Western Herbs, Vibrational Medicine and Aromatherapy. I’m blessed to continue deep study and commitment to Shaka Vansya Ayurveda since beginning with Vaidya Mishra in 2007.

My specialties include women’s health, emotional well-being, Detox programs, SVA diet and protocol, Vibrational Medicine and cooking classes. I have a strong dedication to community projects including a history working with young women, PTSD in Women Vets and cancer patients. Seasonal Panchakarma and traditional treatments are also available.

I’m not only a SVA practitioner, but also a SVA patient, Vaidya Mishra is helping me overcome severe mercury poisoning, effects including nerve damage, chronic fatigue, blindness and memory loss.

What Some of Nancy’s Clients Have to Say

Thank-you so much Nancy… I have been struggling for 2 years to get rid of these problems since my accident, nothing else I tried helped, not doctors or medicines or other treatments. ~ S.K., Chicago

The open sore my dentist had biopsied thinking it was mouth cancer went away really quickly thanks to the practices and drops you gave me. Not one person asked me the questions you did. ~ M.T., Palatine, IL

Nancy told me things I had never heard before, but it all makes sense. I’m glad I found someone to make complicated things less confusing, she’s compassionate and funny and a pleasure to work with. ~L.R., Chicago

Gail Herson

Carpinteria, CA
Tel: +1 949-939-6499

Carpinteria, CA (near Santa Barbara)

Tel: +1 949-939-6499

During personal sessions, Gail provides Vaidya Mishra’s marma energy work using his transdermal vibrational creams and the balancing mantras of his 5,000 year lineage. Gail helps clients open to a more expansive life perspective and experience through her gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience and transformation.

A classically trained singer, she sings the vibrational frequencies of divine light, the Soulsong of each client. Blessings spontaneously arise as her client’s Light of the Soul connects more vibrantly during the marma and mantra sessions. She records each client’s personal Soulsong onto a CD so the client can reattune anytime with his or her own deep vibrational frequencies.

Gail earned her masters degree in Social Work at Washington University and provided counseling and educational services to women. She taught courses in the Transcendental Meditation Program, Vedic Astrology, and Ayurveda.

She was director of the Maharishi Vedic School in Bethesda, MD, and was a lead community organizer of a large spiritual community in Washington, DC. Gail has been initiated into and trained in many light and energy modalities. After completing the three-year Center of Soulful Living Mentoring and Leadership program led by Bill Bauman, PhD, she was ordained as a Minister of Soulful Living.

Gail established a sacred space of celebration and inner knowing, The Inner Garden of Being, in Carpinteria, CA, as a sanctuary for experiencing Oneness through the spiritual arts and sciences, where Vaidya often lectures.

Some of Gail’s clients describe their experiences working with her:

“I felt an energy and light connection with my soul, and even with what must be the Soul of Life.” L. S.

“I had the sense of a healing cloud of sweet energy descending on me, one layer at a time, and I felt instantly more peaceful, integrated and optimistic.” M.K.

Client Testimonial:

My journey with SVA and Vaidya Mishra began around 2007, a few months after retiring from a lifelong career working in Microbiology labs.

I’ve been a big fan and advocate of SVA, thanks to Vaidya Mishra and practitioners including Purnima Chaudhari, Shannon Bourke, Elizabeth Innes and Dawn Hunter.

Winnipeg is very fortunate to have our enlightened Purnima performing miracles with expert pulse assessments and marma therapy treatments.

SVA is not my first experience with Ayurveda but Vaidya Mishra’s practitioners are making a huge impact on my health and well being, with a daily routine that I am responsible for.
