Hello! I’m Dr. Navin Hettiarachchi Ph.D., DNM.

I’m the #1 sport medicine, health and wellness doctor for those who have tried everything – from a multitude of pills, therapies, and surgeries – and still not seeing the desired outcomes to live their dream life.

My philosophy

Most of my clients’ health issues may look the same or standard from the outside. However, no two clients have the same background, history, trauma, physique, stress level, mental mindset and physical environment.

That is why I approach each client differently, creating treatment plans customized to be as unique as each client’s thumbprint to get results.

What is the biggest challenge that I encounter with my clients?

Why My Clients Always Get Results

My clients get fast, effective and sustainable results working with me because of three key reasons:

1. I look at the bigger picture and then dive deep with my clients to identify the root cause of the issue.
This is a deep dive that goes beyond current conventional practices of addressing only symptoms.

2. My expertise in 12 different healthcare expertise areas/modalities enables me to’ integrate the most applicable treatment modalities together – connecting the dots – to create the most effective individualized treatments to address each client’s root cause.
My treatments are transformative because they go beyond conventional linear treatment methods that do not understand and treat the body as an interconnected system.

3. I educate and empower my clients with information, knowledge, evidence-based research, and sustainable practices so they understand what and why – giving more meaning and purpose behind everything we do together to get results.

I can humbly say that the only healthcare professional in the world that has the expertise and experience to integrate all these healthcare modalities together along with the latest evidence-based practices in science and technology:

My Work

I believe the universe finds ways to bring me clients who really need my unique skill set. I started my career working at a health and rehabilitation clinic in Washington DC. From there, I went on to work with Washington DC professional sports teams in the National Football League (NFL – formerly Redskins), National Basketball Association (NBA – Washington Wizards) and the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA – Washington Mystics). I also had the opportunity to work with numerous Olympians, U.S. Women’s Soccer, Paralympians and National Hockey League (NHL) athletes. Word got around and I was also referred to help various celebrities, politicians, and famous musicians with their health and wellness as well.

I consider myself a lifelong learner of healthcare

I have travelled across the world to learn & train under world renowned physical therapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths and other healthcare practitioners from the U.S., Australia, Belgium, England, Malaysia, India, Ireland, & Thailand.

My Treatment Approach

I am the founder of the REDT Method. I use this unique REDT Method (Root cause, Evaluation, Design, and Transformational treatment) in my diagnosis and treatment.

  • You are the true healer.
  • Every human is a self-healer.
  • When we have a scratch, the band-aid we use is only there to protect our scratch from the environment. The band-aid does not heal you. Your body heals itself.
  • Your healing comes from within you. Your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and energy all affect your health and well-being.
  • My role is to be the guide and enabler for your self-healing.
  • I am here to provide the right guidance, tools, techniques and treatments to transform your current health and wellness.
  • When you work with me, it involves a 100% commitment and discipline on your part to follow the guidance I provide you while I keep my 100% commitment to give you THE BEST CARE.
  • So, we work together as a team to get you your results

My Podcast

I am also the host of the “9 mins to Thrive with Navin” podcast where I bring successful inspirational guests from all over the world to share their one key message to uplift and uplevel our life. The number 9 has special meaning to me because of its deeper universal meaning of spiritual awakening, service to humanity, and leading by example.
