“Dr. Jane has been treating me for L5/S1 disc extrusion. The day I visited her for my first consultation, I had terrible burning pain radiating down my left leg along with numbness and weakness. After a few sessions not only is my pain better but I am feeling stronger than ever before. Jane is very interactive and discusses her findings and analysis through the session. She has opened my mind to learning about my body. This condition and meeting Dr. Jane has come as a blessing in disguise – I can now make a better connection between my mind, my body, my gut and my core.
Thanks to Jane and VARDAN”.
I have been suffering from acute slip disc at two levels since three years. I went to many doctors who all recommended surgery which I didn't want. Pain killers didn't affect me at all. I was frustrated when someone advised me to go to VARDAN. I was sceptical but still I went. I was assigned Dr. Namrata who changed my life. She not only helped me physically but also gave me emotional support. She acted like a friend. The sessions helped me a lot in reducing my pain. The exercises have helped me in doing my day to day activities without much hindrance. Namrata has been a great support and proved to be an excellent doctor.
I have been very much satisfied with Vardan, especially Ms. Mamta Sharma ,Who is an outstanding, Passionate Therapist. She has mentored not only me to fitness and hence happiness, But also about 10-12 of my family members and friends, Including my wife and son. Overall Vardan has proved to a boon. Highly recommended!
My back pain is 100% vanished. The techniques employed at VARDĀN are unique as well as amazingly performing very well. My therapist (Swati) is very professional and was able to diagnosis. I am grateful & highly indebted to VARDĀN who resolved my long persisting problem in a matter of few days
I know Vardan since 2012 when I came here with continuing back pain. I was on high dosage of medicines at that time. My pain used to increase while travelling or doing any other bending activity. However, post taking sessions at Vardan my medicines have stopped, I can sit without pain and can do any activity without help. Now, I have been put on supervised exercise to strengthen my back and to prevent any further wear & tear. There is lot of improvement in my health and body. I feel happy to be associated with Vardan for so many years that have made my life pain free.
I had cervical spondylosis for three years and had tried just about everything – from physiotherapy to acupressure. Eventually it aggravated to lumbar spondylitis and I was advised bed rest for a month. I then read an article on Vardan and thought I would try FMT.
I don’t understand exactly what they do with their hands, but from the second session itself my condition showed definite improvement. My back pain became better with correction of my sacrum and coccyx dysfunction, along with neural tension release; and posture education in sitting, standing and sleeping.
I have continued with the follow-up supervised exercise sessions. Even if the pain occasionally returns, I know exactly what to do. Now I am taking antenatal sessions at Vardan to build up my upper body strength and core & pelvic muscles!
I had cervical spondylosis for three years and tried just about everything from the usual physiotherapy to acupressure. Eventually it aggravated to lumbar spondylosis and I was advised bed rest for a month. I then read an article on Vardan in TOI and thought I would try FMT, especially since my in-laws had already benefited immensely from it.
I don’t really understand exactly what they do with their hands, but I would simply say that my FM therapist (Ekta) pushed everything back into where they should be in my body! I found the treatment a little weird at first because it was initially painful -- but it worked and I was won over. I came for 12 sessions over six months, and from the second session itself my condition showed definite improvement.
If you are in acute pain for a long time, the body’s resistance and ability to handle it decreases. Once the body heals, as mine has, tolerance and confidence increases. I have continued with the follow-up exercises and it has been a year now. Now even if the pain occasionally returns, I know exactly what to do. In between I took a car trip and the pain came back with a vengeance but I simply did what Ekta had taught me, from exercises to posture and the pain receded!
Also, my FM therapist has built up such a relationship of trust with me that I know she will understand what I need and what I can take. I was amazed at how her hands found the exact spots where the pain was the most. So now I am having ante-natal sessions at Vardan now to build up my upper body strength and core and pelvic muscles!
I came to Vardan 4months back this year.I have a history of very old lumbar spine back pain.It had reached chronic stage.% I couldn’t even sit and walk.I used to be in pain all the time.But after 3 month of FMT sessions at Vardan.I can feel the change.Now I feel 85% recovered without medication. I had lost all hopes in my treatment till i came to Vardan however it completely changed my perspective after coming here. Now I can recommend it to anybody who has similar ailments and can afford it financially. I am really happy with the services its like a boom for me.
I was under pain of shoulder freezing in my right hand and it was not moving freely. My Physical Therapist Anshul took my pain away in just 4-5 sessions, then I started taking treatment of my back pain, this is again almost cured. Reception staff was very kind to inform my appointments date and time which was helpful to be on schedule as I am mostly remain very busy in my work. My sessions with Anshul were very pleasant, I enjoyed treatment and perhaps this technique of treatment is unique. I really praise Vardan as it has become a real Vardan to me
I came to VARDAN for back pain and knee pain treatment. My therapist Sakar is truly knowledgeable and is quite skilled with FMT technique. He identified the root cause of my pain and suggested the best course of action. VARDAN is probably the best in business. Overall satisfied with my decision to visit VARDAN. Special thanks to Sakar!
“At the age of 76, I walked into VARDAN with 3 companions- Osteoporosis, neck stiffness and back pain. Age had slowed down my physical movements making my muscles weak and stiff. Through Katherine & Prashant they have transformed my life by immaculately obliterating my aches & pains. Their state-of-the-art equipment and par excellence expertise has literally been a life changer. Vardan gives results. It gives you a feel-good factor. I continue today by working out with Prashant 3 times a week at VARDAN, and at the age of 78, I proudly compete with both my sons in several fitness regimes.
Thank you Prashant, Thank you VARDAN”.
My mother, Mrs. Radhika Lall aged 72 years had been suffering from back-ache for the past 20 years which had been sharply increasing in the recent years, hindering her day-to-day functionality. We tried many different treatments in the past, including allopathic, homeopathic, yoga, physio-sessions at a reputed hospital, and certain traditional treatments from non-medical persons. No treatment provided enduring relief and, we thought we had exhausted all remedies. To alleviate the pain, my mother wore a "belt" around her waist and applied pain-relieving oils or ointments.
FMT was one of the best things to have happened to my mother. I learnt about FMT through a news report in Times of India sometime in early October, 2011 and distinctly recall one line, which said: "Bring us your failures"! There was a conviction in that article and, given the credentials of TOI group, I was instinctively drawn to this treatment and called FMT on the very next date to fix an appointment.
My mother's first consultation at FMT centre was fixed on October 4, 2011 and, Ms. Ekta Agnihotri was assigned to take charge of my mother. Miracle happened on the very first visit. My mother was asked to bend forward to touch her toes and, she could barely reach her knees, when her back-ache prevented her from touching the toes. Ekta then worked on my mother for an hour to release the muscles and clear up the faults and, at the end of the session asked her to repeat the step. My mother's hands glided down painlessly to touch her toes! And, my mother got instant relief.
My mother has had a total of 13 - 15 FMT sessions so far and, I have been accompanied her for all of the sessions. My mother could hardly stand or walk for 2 hours without putting on the belt, but after the first two sessions, she stopped wearing the belt. Her pain has almost gone by now, though at times it surfaces in small spasmodic doses, but it is not continuing and crushing as it used to be. My mother needs to follow an exercise regimen to sustain the results. The technique used by the FMT is fundamentally sound and attractive, as its non-invasive and as it attacks the real source of the pain by clearing the faults in the muscle and bone structure, rather than suppressing the pain. My mother had developed a visible slouch, and the treatment has shown remarkable improvement in her posture, as she stands more erectly and smartly.
My mother had another condition of more recent origin - what was termed as "grade 2 shoulder dislocation" - basically, she had severe pain in her left arm and its movement was nearly frozen. She has received extensive treatment for the shoulder pain as well. Whilst the pain has not completely gone, it is not excruciating and unbearable as it used to be and, her arm moves in a much wider range. She has recovered and hopefully, the residual pain will also go with the remaining treatment.
She is extremely happy with her therapist, the quality of treatment and professionalism at FMT centre. Ekta has worked very hard, diligently and thoroughly, motivating and supporting my mother to achieve the targets. She has a very pleasing demeanor, knows her job and exhibits a commitment and professionalism, which is commendable. She is perceptive in terms of handling a patient physically and emotionally and, the primary reason of our satisfaction with FMT.
Also, the entire support staff and management, including the senior therapists have been very nice, supportive and efficient. We were very appreciative of the cleanliness at the Centre, e.g. the sheets and pillows were changed each time before the start of the treatment, which I know, is not done even in the so called 5-star hospitals of Delhi. The appointments were meticulously kept and managed. We would get a reminder call, two days before the appointed date, which was so admirable.
My mother is very grateful that FMT has offered such excellent treatment without costs. We have talked about the centre to many people, who have approached FMT for appointments. A comment: talking to people I gauged that whilst they were convinced about the treatment, they found Rs.2500 per session rather high, even though they could afford it. I guess, it is question of prioritizing. I would rather pay for this treatment and achieve a pain-free life for my mother, than perhaps put this money elsewhere.
We are grateful to TOI for introducing this treatment and, hope that FMT (Vardan Centre) achieves tremendous success in India.

The depth of my therapist’s knowledge (Garima) and expertise to understand the root cause of the ailment is excellent
I had come to Vardan 5months ago when I had suffered a severe episode of strain in my back.I was living with lot of pain. It had started interfering with my walking and standing condition. Due to pain I wasn’t able to stand for more than 2mins even. Post FMT sessions at Vardan I feel confident and got rid of my back pain within few months. In FMT therapists worked on my walking, sitting, standing postures accompanied by home exercises that were really helpful during therapy. Now I have completely recovered and are able to do my daily activities efficiently.Vardan is a pleasant hygienic place to be at for recovery.Its not like a normal physiotherapy center.
One of the best decisions of my life was to take physiotherapy sessions at Vardan under Anshul. He has been able to diagnose my problems very accurately and has gone into a lot of depth in order to fix those problems. He had a valid explanation for every small problem that was causing problems to my back. He has been extremely friendly and patient. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for everything that he has done for me and for the time and effort he has spent in order to do this.
“I am writing this mail to appreciate the great effort and dedication that is put in by the physiotherapy / FMT Team working at Vardan. Their commitment and work knowledge is commendable.
A special mention of appreciation for Ekta, Mamta and Tanu Bhardwaj who have helped me to overcome my back pain which had been hindering a lot of my physical activities. After remedial therapies they encouraged me to continue with preventive training and I am a lot fitter than I was.
Thanks and Regards to you and the Team” - Shavina Prakash
I came to VARDĀN for hip pain treatment. My therapist Mamta is truly professional and is quite skilled at her work. Best part was correct diagnosis of the problem which was not done at a number of other centres we had visited earlier. The customer service staff have been very helpful. Overall pretty satisfied with my decision to visit VARDĀN.
Special thanks to Mamta!
I started coming to VARDĀN in Sept’16 for back pain treatment and have taken 5FMT sessions with supervised exercises. Before coming to VARDĀN I was unable to sit even for 1hr.I had stopped going to work and was not able to do any exercises. After taking sessions at VARDĀN now my posture sense has become better. But is in mode of recovery and I feel it will completely improve after few more sessions. I can only say one thing after so many years being in pain I have found a treatment which with its exceptional approach has helped me come out of my pain. VARDĀN is a doing great in the field of physiotherapy with good quality and standard.
I started coming to VARDĀN with critical back pain which was well treated at VARDĀN. Now I come for treatment in my knee. I have osteoarthritis and have been suggested medicines by the doctors. Post treatment at VARDĀN my medicines have stopped and knee pain is almost gone. Thanks to VARDĀN for really affecting our lives in such positive manner through their amazing services and treatment.
I came to Vardan 6 weeks ago. Reading their article in the newspaper.I had lot of issue in my body ie pain in knee,hip,Wrist movement and ankle. Most of it happened due to wrong yoga exercises.Before coming here I used to feel frustrated was not able to do any yoga exercises due to pain in these parts of body.FMT therapy sessions has miracusly worked on my pain areas post which I have I believe in Vardan has increased. Changes happening in my body pain are proof of their achievement. They also worked on my posture correction.I find this very sensible and related to my treatment which no other doctor could locate. I like the intervention of CFMT’s during difficult sessions.Their way of treatment has made me locate the right reason for my problem.
I have been in the profession for 18 years, and after an injury last year I got a backache that just grew and grew. It hurt specially when I trained so I took a break from shooting, and even exercising. I went to other physical therapists, but their treatment helped only a little as the pain would return the moment I took up my rifle and got into position. It was clearly specific to my profession as there was no pain at other times. I got depressed as I thought my shooting career was over.
Then I heard about Vardan from a fellow Olympian. As you know, every sport has its own dangers. FM therapists told me the pain was due to misalignment and pressure on my vertebrae, triggered by my injury. It got aggravated when I got into my posture as the rifle is 5.5kg and we train up to 4 hours at a time! Initially even with FMT the pain would return, but slowly I could stand longer and take more shots. FM therapy, I realize is very specific, from analysis to treatment.
My therapist identified the exact spot on my back without even an X-ray – using just his hands – and treated it at its root! During and after my 12 sessions he gave me very specific exercises for particular areas to gradually strengthen my muscles and improve my posture. Now that I am pain-free, my head is clear, I feel so much more positive about my career – no question of quitting any more – and my whole life. And I am so happy that I didn’t have to go abroad for this treatment!
