Introducing Healing in Chiang Mai

The city of Chiang Mai in North Thailand, has a relaxed and open hearted feel despite being Thailand's second largest city. Possibly due to these reasons, Chiang Mai has become a small alternative healing hub, hosting a variety of permanent and seasonal alternative practitioners.

Tourists are often surprised as to how much is on offer here and upon such a discovery spontaneously take advantage of these services, which are offered at a fraction of the cost compared to prices back home. (Most practitioners charge between 2000 to 3000 baht a session as of 2014).

Past Life Regression

Past life regression is often done when a person is in hypnosis, where a person is brought back to a previous life to clear the held emotions and beliefs that are now affecting this current life. We do past life regressions as an integral part of the Releasing work.


Releasing is a unique offering as it is both an energy healing as well as a mental and psychological healing coupled with a self-discovery and self-awareness session. In a session we combine Releasing with a no-threatening style of Hypnosis, allowing us to directly access the energetic disturbances in your life and giving you the opportunity to rapidly clear it, freeing you from emotional, mental and physical pain.
