Here at our calming riverside sanctuary in the city of Chiang Mai, in Northern Thailand, you’ll be poised to reap all the healing benefits of both Asian traditional practices and ground-breaking therapeutic innovations. Even if you’ve been resistant to treatment in the past, we believe that with enough personal attention paid to what truly drives your issues, you can experience deep transformation beyond what you ever thought what was possible.
Our holistic treatment approach takes your whole picture into account – your presenting issue, underlying issues, past experiences, relationships, environment and family dynamics – and addresses problems at their source to make sure they don’t recur.
