Meet Dr. Raman

The Founder Of Lunaris Health & Wellness

Every Story Has A Beginning

Dr. Gayathri Raman, founder of Lunaris Health & Wellness, is a Board-Certified Family Medicine, certified personal trainer, corrective and performance exercise specialist, strength and conditioning coach, and Pranic healer.

After graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City BA/MD program in 1998, she completed her Family Medicine residency at St. John’s Mercy in St. Louis, MO. Joining private practice in 2002, Dr. Raman fell in love with the continuity of care outpatient medicine provided. Caring for patients from diagnosing to healing was the experience no textbook could provide.

It soon became apparent that a 15-minute appointment and a narrow-minded approach wouldn’t be enough to give patients what they needed. In 2011, Dr. Raman began her concierge practice so patients would know that they were so much more than just another number on the schedule.

“Health is our most treasured commodity, and when systems align, health becomes our greatest resource. For every symptom, there is an answer, and for every disease process, there is hope for healing.”

– Dr. Gayathri Raman

The Next Chapter

For the last decade, Dr. Raman has used her passion for Eastern & Western blend of medicine to offer patients a layered approach to healing. With a drive to overturn the perceptions of traditional medicine, Dr. Raman continues to seek a deeper understanding of the human body. As a certified Pranic Healer, Dr. Raman uses energy healing, chakra balance, meditation guidance to help eradicate diseases, along with conventional medicines.

In April 2022, Dr. Raman opened Lunaris Health & Wellness in Chesterfield, MO, as an expansion to healing. Lunaris is home to a multi-faceted healing approach that includes traditional primary care, fitness and nutritional counseling, energy healing, meditation training, aesthetics, and community programs for all who are seeking to not just get better, but for those that want to heal.

Dr. Raman is married with a son and daughter who are not only the backbone of Lunaris, but the reason for its existence. In her spare time, Dr. Raman is an avid fitness geek, a bookworm to the core and a lover of all things fashion. If you don’t find her working at Lunaris Health & Wellness, you can see her out running the streets of Chesterfield or curled up in her meditation room with the latest Eckhart Tolle book or sewing away on the latest trends.
