A life committed to Care!
Dr. Ansar's life is nothing lesser than an inspiring history. It is the true story of positivity and perseverance that often elevates a human being to a divine gift to mankind. In the year 2000 he began experiencing failing eyesight and by 2006 completely lost his sense of vision. Undaunted by this major setback that would have left lesser mortals totally lost, Ansar willed himself to turn the disaster into an opportunity. He made his lack of sight sharpen up his inner vision to focus on his chosen field of foot reflexology. He feels that in the absence of visual distractions he is able to concentrate better on the various pressure points that form very foundation of the science of foot reflexology. The lack of vision has only served to increase his sensory capabilities allowing him to seek out the pressure points with more precision and certainty. It is also believed that certain therapies are performed better with the eyes closed for more concentration. Thus, the handicap has proved to be a blessing in disguise for both the therapist and the client, with the latter enjoying absolute privacy of attire while foot reflexology is being performed. Today Dr. Ansar has extended this positive state of mind by enabling many others to turn the challenge of being visually challenged into becoming professionals in reflexology therapy and he has offered them a rewarding career in his own clinic. Dr. Ansar is also involved with giving training programs for the visually challenged and special training for nurses for research purposes.
On the professional front, Dr. Ansar is a qualified practitioner in alternative medicine, and a registered member of the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines. He studied at the prestigious Jayendra Saraswathi Ayurveda College, Chennai, where he got trained in 'Panchakarma'. He garnered his skills in Physiotherapy, Acupressure, Foot Reflexology, Zone Therapy and Sujok Therapy as well as Swedish Therapy from Mumbai and Yoga from Vyasa, Bangalore. After obtaining his primary qualification in these areas, he underwent advanced training in Reflexology, Thai massage, Neck and shoulder massage and Aromatherapy in Thailand, and has now established himself as a leading practitioner in this field. He had been awarded PhD in alternative medicine and Marma Shastra by the Open International University and achieved Masters in Yoga and Naturopathy.
