We are often told that our treatments deliver beyond their promise, and how much they differ from people’s expectations.
We go to great lengths to train ila therapists in ancient yogic techniques and energy work, helping them to channel the flow of healing energy that is central to the success of our treatments. But it’s when clients come out of a treatment looking and feeling transformed that they truly appreciate how natural and ethical integrity can go hand in hand with spectacular results.
