Simply seeking good health from semi-annual visits to the doctor and dentist might not be cutting it. Spiritual health and healing is more vital to your overall health than you might think. Chiang Mai was once the Lanna capital of the world, and even today is still regarded as one of the spiritual health healing capitals of Thailand. It’s easy to see why with its slow-paced lifestyle, rich historical roots, friendly faces, and breath-taking scenic views of the surrounding nature.
For those of you who don’t like to be too far away from modern healthcare, Chiang Mai does not disappoint with its world-class hospitals and healthcare systems, but don’t take my word for it, head over to lannahealthhub.org. The Ministry of Health Public Chiang Mai provides information on all legally registered organizations including hospitals, dentists, spa and massage parlors, Thai massage, medical profession training institutes, and alternative medications such as herbs and health products.
Visitors to Chiang Mai obviously have a wide-variety of treatments to choose from, and there are even more possibilities for those who choose the alternative Lanna-style therapy. These treatments include Yam Khang Massage, Ched Haek Therapy, Herbal Bathing, Tapping Line Therapy, Hot Herbal Ball Massage, Chinese Medical Therapy, and many more!
If you are interested in learning about the Lanna medical profession, Chiang Mai doesn’t disappoint with its many training schools where you can learn, practice, and further their studies of the ancient practice. Once you smell the scent of the old Lanna tradition, you’ll be hooked and will never forget your experience “doing the thing you should do in Chiang Mai.”
Visitors to Chiang Mai will be greeted warmly by the local population, many of which are health-conscious ex-pats themselves. When you are surrounded by fresh, organically grown produce on every corner, it’s easy to see why Chiang Mai draws millions of tourists per year, many of whom decide to also call it “home”.
