One of India’s leading physiotherapists and integrative healers, with a global following that includes household name Hollywood talent and captains of industry, Ashish’s multi-disciplinary and integrative approach comes from an unusual professional background. Having spent seven years total studying (achieving a Bachelors degree in Physiotherapy; Masters degree in physiotherapy: Orthopaedics and Sports Rehab, both degrees entirely centred on Western medical traditions), his previous posts include simultaneously juggling patients in thirteen intensive care units at Delhi’s most prestigious private hospital, to state level football teams. He has also worked with special needs youth cases (Autism and Cerebral Palsy) and has been published in a medical journal. As a Fellow of The Academy General Education, he also has teaching experience in biomechanics, kinesiology, anatomy and physiology.
In 2015 he added a holistic and intuitive aspect, with energetic healing, to his
practice joining internationally renowned wellness retreat in Northern India. He now has a global clientele, many of whom fly in to get treated specifically by him from London, Sydney, Kuwait, Frankfurt, San Francisco and Paris.
The foundation of his approach is patient education: via simple to understand methods and corrective movement strategies, he empowers each patient to locate their own sense of autonomy over their condition. He is relentless in not allowing fear-mongering, nor the formality of diagnostic language to intimidate patients, instead encouraging an embracing of the myriad idiosyncrasies of the human body and working with our healing powers.
His unconventional and often creative methods might include working in the open air using trees as props, combining physio with fitness rehab in patients’ gyms, combining a 1970’s Australian sports rehab technique with modern pilates exercise, treating an immobile MS patient in bed, dry needling or K-taping, as well as manual therapy where needed. He is currently based in Northern India and looking to relocate to London in 2019.
