AMITA S. NATHWANI, M.A. (Ayur)
Surya Owner

Ayurvedic Medicine and Nutrition Consultant


Amita, who divides her practice between Tucson and Durango, Colorado, is the owner of Surya Health and Wellness, an integrative wellness center in Durango where she practices Ayurvedic medicine and nutrition consulting. Of Indian origin, she received her Ayurvedic education in both India and North America, an experience that has given her a unique perspective and allowed her to remain true to the purity of Ayurvedic knowledge while deeply understanding its application in the Western world. With the support of her two teachers, Dr. Hemant Gupta and Dr. Shirish Nathwani, she has been practicing Ayurveda since 2004.

Amita works in both traditional and conventional modalities, her speciality being digestive and metabolic disorders. Amita begins with digestion and incorporates diet, lifestyle, and—most importantly—state of mind to gain a greater understanding of the whole person. Important to her approach is recognizing stress, grief, addictions, and relationships as factors affecting health. She helps each client come to greater understanding and acceptance of life and all its circumstances in order to facilitate the healing process.

In addition to her private practice in Tucson and Durango, Amita is a part time Instructor at Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine and Han University of Traditional Medicine teaching Case Study Patient Conferences and Practice Management.

Amita is also a practitioner at Rooted in Tucson, Arizona, a locally owned  clinic, yoga and movement studio, and educational and integrative-wellness center staffed by independent therapists, teachers, and health practitioners. Visit Rooted: www.rootedmassagetucson.com

Each consultation from every practitioner consists of an individualized assessment.

Every client will be asked to complete an intake form that outlines one's personal, family and heath history, along with dietary and lifestyle habits. This will give the practitioner the ability to look at the overall health of the client. We ask that you bring in any lab results, supplements, herbal remedies and prescription drugs that you are taking in order to help facilitate your care with your other health care providers. Upon assessment, treatments and/or recommendations are administered based on each individuals needs.

In holistic healing, the relationship between practitioner and client is very important. Confidentiality, compassion and trust are the key elements to a successful healing interaction.  At Surya Health and Wellness, we promise to uphold these principles and look forward to sharing them with you.
