KayaKalp is a sanctuary for holistic healing. The name KayaKalp is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning 'rejuvenation' or 'greening of the field' and holds a sacred vibration for healing and rejuvenation.
"The beauty of Chinese Medicine is that it illuminates and often explains Western Medicine. Chinese Medicine focuses on the energy flow within the body; Western Medicine focuses on the physical body. By integrating both medicines, I engage both the energetic and physical aspects of health and offer a more holistic care for my patients.
