Her offering Chikitsa Vastu is an experiential learning practice which helps in building inner alignment and stability within the practitioner. The philosophy behind Chikitsa Vastu science of space and form is that our environment and design of our living spaces has a profound effect on wellbeing. The practitioner learns to become more aware of the energies present within and outside their body by doing certain exercises such as mindful walking, sketching, designing, tasting, chanting and more thereby becoming more open to sensations. They develop an awareness of their other senses moving beyond their cognitive capacities.
Regular practice of Chikitsa Vastu helps the practitioner in building a sensorial awareness of their self, their physical environment and the cosmic space. This leads to a deeper connection and engagement with the self and the world around them. This help creates spaces that promote creativity. For example, the use of specific colours, shapes, and textures can stimulate the mind and inspire creativity, thereby becoming more insightful and intuitive.
It can be practised in a routine manner by incorporating the principles of the system into daily life such as paying attention to the layout of home or workplace or incorporating certain natural elements.

"The built environment, including audio and visual aspects, plays a crucial role in patients' outcomes. Hospitals can create a better healing environment by reducing noise, incorporating natural light and nature elements, and comfort. These factors contribute to improved patient wellbeing and recovery."
