Shanthy received her Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine (DAM) in Sri Lanka, where Ayurvedic and alternative health systems are the primary platform of medicine. Shanthy spent the following 9 years there practicing as an Ayurvedic medical practitioner at Mother Theresa Medicare, during which her skills in ad passion for Ayurveda developed deeply. In the following years, Shanthy moved to the US with her family and began to course a different career path. After completing her Associates Degree (ASS) in business Administration and Computer Information Systems, Shanthy spent 4 years working in business and computer management. During this time she came to realize that her purpose was not in business but rather in wellness. She wanted to help Ayurveda and holistic health systems take root and continue spreading in this part of the world. Shanthy again set out to obtain proper certification and expand her knowledge of Ayurveda and alternative medicine systems. In doing so she began by incorporating the traditions of Massage and Bodywork with her knowledge of Ayurveda. 

Shanthy continued on to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and Nationally Certified Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCTMB). She uses this unique combination of disciplines to asses an individual’s health and course treatment from a holistic standpoint. Currently Shanthy has a special focus on women’s health and wellness therapies with great knowledge of Ayurveda diet and lifestyle, herbal healing, nutrition, and preventative strategies. She also specializes in Panchakarma therapy, chronic pain, pregnancy, and Medical Massages. 

Shanthy is now a member of Association of Ayurvedic Professionals of North America (AAPNA), Bodywork Massage Professionals and the New York Institute of Massage Therapy Alumni Association allowing her to connect with various other active individuals in the field. Her current business, Harisa Ayurvedic Wellness Center, has been a growing and expanding since July of 2011.
