Dr. Manmeet Kaur Rattu
Why did you become a healer and what makes you special in the healing space?
I honestly think we are all born healers and I’m no different than anyone else. I’ve always been described by my family as a “good listener” and “creative”, and I was. I love to learn from others and was curious about the human experience from many perspectives, including why some suffer. I’ve also always been drawn to art and nature, and how it influences our understanding of the world. It never felt logical, but rather intuitive to work in the space of health and healing.
Who is your favorite tv~movie/historical/mythological healer?
Thor (joking)! Guru Nanak
What is your perspective on the current mental and physical wellbeing of healers/caregivers?
I am concerned. Physicians and healthcare workers make up a large population of who we generally go to, to “heal”. However, these providers significantly and increasingly experience burnout and psychological distress. I do see more large corporate institutions building awareness around this issue and interested in supporting individuals from an organizational level, however a lot of work still needs to be done. Caregivers and healers to lack safety and genuine support when it comes to mental and emotional wellbeing. Normalizing self care practices at work, consistent support, and practical application are all important and could improve.
What is your preferred method of practicing self-care?
Managing my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health come through my daily practices. The strategies may look a little different depending on the day, however include solitary and community engagement, but generally encompass each of these areas for my personal optimal health.
What’s your go-to tea for rejuvenation?
I love all teas, but my go-to for year-round health is echinacea.
