CO-FOUNDER & CEO
A trip to Thailand awoke his passion for alternative medicines. These ancient methods offered a holistic view on human health and a focus on prevention rather than cure, very different to what he, as a physiotherapist, was used to seeing in hospitals. This discovery changed his way of thinking as well as the direction of his career, leading him to dedicate his life to the research and study of Eastern traditional medicines and massage methods. The Wat Po School in Thailand, The University of Hong Kong, The Ayurveda College in India and The Men Tsee Khang University in Dharamsala, are some of the benchmark schools in which he has studied.
