"My first breakthrough at the center was with Salma and was out of this world (!) and she has literally changed my life! I knew I was a strong woman before, but Salma has broadened and healed my universe- mind, body and soul- and for this I am shedding some tears as I write this. So so grateful. I truly believe that ANYTHING can be healed with her guidance, sensitivity, and wisdom. She has given me more than meditation tools to carry me through life. Love you Salma!"
"My experience doing Preksha therapy with Salma has been life changing. I’ve been a yoga teacher and meditator for almost 20 years and knew that I was close to realizing the freedom that I was seeking, but couldn’t seem to reach. Being diagnosed with breast cancer put me in a space of everything unknown and forced me to live hour to hour. I was doing everything to cleanse the body, but I still was in extreme pain. After the second session, I was able to trust and focus on Salma’s guidance with less physical pain. This is truly powerful work to bring us back to our healthiest self"
“To recap my sessions so far with Salma, I have gone from being a crying, fearful, anxiety-ridden mess to one who is more tranquil and trusting of myself. I was an anxious OVER-thinker before. This particular therapy and meditation has brought me more freedom and my appetite has improved. Physically I am better able to relax and notice how my muscles were tense before. I am hoping to experience more physical and mental healing because as a cancer survivor we always wait or wonder if it will return. But I am so looking forward to getting to that place where I can learn more about self healing with this unique therapy and meditation techniques. My goal is to be able to stop all my meds!!"
"Love going to the center. The most life changing person for me is Salma. She is a master of Preksha therapy & mediation here. I could not have grown without her! If you are interested in being your best self and changing, you need to make a trip to the center to see her. The basic art of breathing and her Preksha therapy has helped me see and feel things I did not see before.”
“Dearest Selma, when I first met you I was at a crossed road with my personal relationship in life with my ex fiancee at the time.
It was so demanding that I lost myself. When I started learning last year about the importance of breathing and the meaning of meditation. I realized I was putting undue pressure on myself. I had no clue about the basic steps. You taught me that. Through my sessions with you I started to slowly gain myself back. It wasn't until later when I found out I was stuck in life. Working on the steps of understanding myself to work at a higher level helped my mind to shift. In the past, I felt lonely and missing something but it turned out my mind was telling me I wasn't worthy but now I know without a doubt that I am enough and my best self has increased a lot. Through errors in my life I now see, I was running around saving others but it was me that needed to be saved. That part of me Forever changed. You are my blessed savior. Without you I could not have grown.”
“It is great we can have these sessions remotely, as I think everyone needs a bit of stress relief, calmness and peace right now. Our last session was another great one that helped me further understand 'we are not only the mind and body' concept. So, I was feeling that unconditional happiness, freedom and lightness again.”
"Thank you Salma, I woke up this morning feeling so different today...somehow more open and alive. Something must’ve integrated from our conversation yesterday ️“
"Salma's sessions have helped me in many different kinds of life situations. I have a better understanding about the mind, body and "something else;" For the time being I will call it "my other self." So far I have realized that I feel more awake and aware of myself and my surroundings. Through her breath work I also learned how to control the pain and symptoms related to my peripheral neuropathy. Salma's sessions have helped me to become calmer and even a better person. I feel more centered and therefore much stronger and more stable."
“There is a significant improvement in my feet after our last session. It didn't happen immediately, but over a couple of days and now I feel much better.
Also my sense of smell and taste keeps getting better. I think my vision is getting better as well "
"At today’s session I took away that I am in control of my own thoughts; good, bad, indifferent. I'm embracing my inner strength, my comfort zone and my safe place that you guide me during our sessions."
"I woke up feeling so different today... Somehow open and alive. Something must’ve integrated from our conversation yesterday.“
"After our session I felt like I was given an IV full of HOPE, so I became even more positive and optimistic. Definitely my fears are slowly melting away and the confidence in myself keeps increasing.”
“Last session, I felt extremely free and happy, realizing we don't need that many things in order to live a happy life. Still reflecting on my experience as it was so powerful. Let's talk about this more today at noon.”
“What I remember is relaxing each and every cell in my body. Felt very energized after the session, like I had a good 3 hour sleep ”
“I realized the most important thing. What I found in the silence is HOPE. Everything I do matters, everything is going to be ok and there are still plenty of beautiful things ahead of me. And it is up to me to let and to make these happen. “
Stress Management & Meditation Therapist
Salma studied and trained at the International Preksha Meditation Center in New Delhi, India, JFK University, as well as the International Coach Federation. From 2004-2014, Salma also served as the founder and director of the Alternative & Holistic Health Center in Walnut Creek and Fremont California. As founding director, she successfully coordinated numerous events targeting holistic and wellness communities and taught mindfulness & meditation therapy.
"In March 2018, I was diagnosed with Stage IV gastric cancer. I underwent an open surgery and the most aggressive chemotherapy available, so by the end of the treatment, I was a complete wreck. Pain and aches all over my body, my muscles feeling like jelly, severe neuropathy in hands and feet (so bad I couldn’t barely walk) and much more… This is when I met Dr. Lopresti's team, and Salma in particular, and started my meditation journey. Over the past couple of years I learned and experienced many things that greatly helped me to be myself and live my life to the fullest again. Will share below just some of them.
Thanks to my sessions with Salma my stress levels went to the lowest possible and now I can tell I am a brand new worry free person. My fears have slowly diminished and almost disappeared, allowing me to see the world from a different perspective. Now I feel smarter, stronger and stay focused only on the things in life that matter the most.
The first change I noticed is how relaxed my body is after each session. All the stiffness is gone and I feel taller to the point that when I get back to my car I have to adjust the rear view mirror. Unexpected, but I saw a huge improvement in my vision. At the age of 56 I don’t need me reading glasses anymore to read something on my phone, a product description in the supermarket, a menu in the restaurant, etc. Amazing, isn’t it! My neuropathy is also getting better with every session and now I am back stable on my feet, running 5 miles every morning and doing strenuous 9-12 mile hikes on the weekends.
Almost forgot about the breathing. Yes, the first thing Salma taught me was how to breathe properly. Now when I am working out, hiking, delivering a presentation, going to the dentist and so on, I just breathe and the things are much easier. Five years ago, after a very bad flu, I lost completely my sense of smell. Mentioned it to Salma, we started working on it and voila – I can smell the flowers, I can taste the food and I can buy my favorite perfumes again.
The most important discoveries that I made during my journey with Salma is the awareness of Love that I carry for myself and the ability to feel and experience unconditional happiness at any given moment. Long story short, I am now a better person, more accepting, understanding, easier to forgive and always full of joy and HOPE."
“There is a significant improvement in my feet after our last session. It didn't happen immediately, but over a couple of days and now I feel much better. Also my sense of smell and taste keeps getting better. (as I lost them with chemo) I think my vision is getting better as well ”
"Salma, I wanted to thank you so much and tell you how much you have helped me snap out of where I was!! At my last visit I felt like you woke me up from a nightmare. Thank you for your patience, wisdom, knowledge and guidance. I am so ready to change and receive."

“What I remember from our last session is relaxing each and every cell in my body. But then felt very energized after the session, like I had a good 3 hour sleep ”
“After our last two sessions I started to feel much better in my own body. Like a reset followed by a re-sync took place and I felt much healthier, energized and even younger"
“I realized the most important thing in meditation therapy with Salma is the understanding of silence. As I found HOPE. Everything I do matters, everything is going to be okay and there are still plenty of beautiful things ahead of me. And it is up to me to make it all happen. “
“After our last session, I noticed significant changes the hours and the days after the session. Like I was given an IV full of HOPE, so I became even more positive and optimistic. Definitely my fears are slowly melting away and the confidence in myself and is keep increasing.”
"I started to practice your meditation technique every day for about half an hour. I was focusing mainly on my left eye. Apparently it helps. This morning I was working on my computer and 30 min later I realized I don't have my glasses on, without even noticing. Also per your suggestion I am reading “The Power of Now” a few pages every day. So far the most interesting and helpful is where he talks about the origin of fear...as you mentioned.
Overall, I would say that everything you are doing with me is helping a lot. I found my balance again, my energy is back, while my fears are literally going down."
"Starting to understand the power of NOW. The "reservoir" is where the doubt is coming from. The "reservoir" doesn't serve me. The old me is the one who is talking to me, it's fighting with the new me, the voice of reason. The new me will slowly take over."
