I am able to sit here and write this review because Dr. Peetambar Mishra gave me two massages, one Friday and one Saturday, before he left Bend, Oregon. He was here for a very short time, staying with a student of his who is one of my neighbors. I was squeezed in, literally, after running into another neighbor who had gotten massages from him (she and her husband both had 3 massages each). I have never had an Ayurvedic massage, but have had physical therapy massages after injuring by back at work. I have had two spinal fusions, and have had continuous pain since the late 1980's. The massage took place on the floor of my home, with my husband in his recliner. The second one, the following day took place without my husband present. In no way did I get a creepy feeling from Peetambar. My board certified gastroenterologist, Kusum Stokes, was also arrogant, and I loved her. She was a great doctor, and also was proud of her skills. Maybe because I had been seen by an Indian doctor for almost twenty years, before moving to Oregon, I wasn't put off by any assertiveness i saw. This man KNOWS what he is doing, and may be one of the best. I could barely walk when I saw him on Friday, with pain radiating down my left leg. On Saturday, after my second massage, I rested in front of the fire for an hour, took a nap, and woke up cured! AMazing, for I have alway had to go to bed, with a pillow under my legs for several days to alleviate the pain. SOmeday, I hope to go to his ashram, and learn more, I am SOLD! To insinuate something isn't quite right with him is obscene. I thought his hands were strong, and he knew what muscles to work to fix me, and that is exactly what I needed to heal. Thank you Dr. Peetambar Mishra! Next time, we'll come to India, and maybe you can help my husband.
