Dr Jitendra Varshney

Professional background

I am a postgraduate in Ayurvedic Medicine with 15 years of experience in both Health and the Hospitality industry. I started my career with a nutrition clinic wherein most of the issues were about metabolic disorders. We used to treat a patient using Ayurvedic herbs, and it was here I learnt ‘how to incorporate modern diets with Ayurveda’. Then, I worked with a renowned destination spa in India, and in 2015, I joined Six Senses Resort Maldives. Only recently I have moved to Six Senses Spa Mumbai as the Spa and Wellness Director.

Inspiration to join the industry

Like any other Ayurveda graduate I also started my career with some hospitals where my services were limited to examining patients and prescribing medicines. I always wanted to use my knowledge of Ayurveda where the line of treatment included changing one’s lifestyle, food habits and using external therapies. Fortunately, I was able to work with one of world’s best destination spa as an Ayurvedic Physician.
