I had been suffering from back problems and and new it was related to general health issues. Being a professional musician (piano player) i was finding that my health situation brought me to an absolute stand still at the end of 2011, I dropped all my work, grabbed a backpack and decided to go to Thailand as the weather around winter (my hometown of London is grim this time of year!), cost of living, food and beautiful culture attracted me greatly. I had been researching many options around the world to find a good place to concentrate on getting healthy.
From the first moments I spoke to Mel (the co-owner) i knew i would be in good hands, her caring, expertise and a general feeling that she was passionate about helping came across even in the first conversations and despite being the busiest and hardest working person ive ever met, she offered arrange a meeting in a settlement called Nai Harn (which was a wonderful mix of Expats from around the world integrating seamlessly with Thai communities) to talk through what was on offer and what might suit my needs.
I thought about staying for a few weeks to try it and get a kick start, but the mix of people there, tailored exercise/diet and wellbeing classes available meant that i stayed for nearly two months!!! I learnt so much about how to eat, Yoga, strength training, Muai Thai. I lost allot of weight, was running, cycling and swimming further and with greater ease than i ever had, and whilst some of the sessions were tough (i began to look forward to the tough stuff more and more throughout my stay), there was always support from others, some of the best massage to ease aches and pains, yummy healthy food and adventures into the hills, boat rides to Islands and great entertainment at different venues in Nai Harn, that meant progress was smooth and seamless. I made loads of friends, and if there is one negative about the whole experience its that as my old life and responsibilities beckoned me home, I couldn't stay there forever!!!!
These guys work magic for your body and mind, and whatever your ailments,/predicament /curiosity about healthier lifestyle, that brings you here, you will find a space to heal at your own pace and with better support than you could have ever imagined. Even though this helped me get more than back on track i will be back as soon as i can to learn more.
