'Ramita was a constant support during a very trying time for our whole family.  We were caring for my son in his home when he was diagnosed with a terminal cancer.  For me personally, her loving use of [energy work] helped me remain centered and have a greater degree of equanimity emotionally and spiritually during those heartbreaking weeks. The most profound thing happened some time after his death.  I was probably questioning if I had done the right things for him. She said to me,  "If we dwell on the past we get depression, if we project into the future we get anxiety. The only  place there is peace is here and now."  I will be forever grateful for those precious words.' S.P.

'I was at home, still mostly in bed, after a total hip replacement and Ramita came to offer some nursing care. She invited my 3 year old granddaughter to help her which I felt was brilliant.  It let the little one learn that she too had a role to play being a helpful family member.  Included in Ramita's care was [energy work] which helped with relaxation and pain relief. The combination of those two effects resulted in fewer doses of pain medication being used and more comfort in my recovery.'  A.K.P.
