Founder of Chopra Addiction & Wellness Center, Nirmala Raniga has an extensive background in helping people from all walks of life and helping them deal with addiction, addictive behaviours, depression, anxiety and PTSD. She uses powerful recovery and wellness programs that combine the latest therapeutic techniques in modern Western medicine with the traditional healing arts of the East to empower clients to resume life with renewed vitality, focus and purpose.
Drawing on almost three decades of experience, skills and commitment, her approach is to treat everyone with respect, dignity, care and compassion. As an addiction specialist, she broke ground in the field of addiction rehabilitation in 1989 by demanding that people in the opiate dependency programs be treated with respect and compassion, not moral disdain or contempt.
She is passionate about sharing timeless wisdom tools for mind-body health, deeper life fulfillment and emotional healing. Nirmala has made appearances for television, radio and live events internationally. She is the host of weekly show, Journey of Healing which airs on JoyTv and Shaw. The show provides practical information and tools to help address depression, anxiety, and stress. To date, she has released two meditation albums, The Divine Healing Mantra, and Meditation: An Introduction.
