Since 2005 Ritu has been working with Reiki and subtle vibrational healing mechanisms to create unimaginable shifts in our bodies, which are made up of 70% water. Her focus is on balancing the emotional, spiritual & energetic aspects of ourselves.
She believes that the mind is like water... when it is turbulent, it is difficult to navigate our lives clearly and with grounded compassion. When the mind is calm, everything becomes crystalline.
