Hidden in fifty acres of bonsai-covered gardens, in the foothills of the Himalayas, lies the Tao Garden Health Spa and Resort. The health center offers a holistic approach to the healing experience, using the Pakua Integrative Health Clinic to facilitate this process.
The clinic's doctors and practitioners focus on improving the wellbeing of its patients' mind, body and spirit. Its ethos draws on the taoist philosophy, as taught by Grand Master Mantak Chia.
The clinic's international team of health specialists employ modern treatments adapted from traditional chinese medicine, including ayurvedic, energy, and allopathic medicine. Furthermore, it orchestrates a unique therapy program to address each individual's needs.
The clinic is situated on the cusp of the mountainous province of Chiang Mai, which is a one hour flight north of Bangkok. It takes a further thirty minutes to drive from Chiang Mai airport to Tao Garden Health Spa. The province sits in a forest-lined valley which is intersected by the Ping River.
In Chiang Mai, there are many leafy streets, old wooden houses, and romantic lakesides. This includes northern Thailand's artificial lake, Kwan Phayaol, where mountains and powerful sunsets complete the pleasant scene.
There are more accessible ruins, which are situated in the north of the city. These were once enclosed by Kamphaeng Phet, which translates to 'Diamond Gate'. Conveniently, there is also a visitor centre which provides information on the cities ruins and it's 40 temples. This also includes Wat Chang Rob, which is a chedi framed by antiquated statues of elephants.

More about available treatments at Tao Garden Health Spa and Resort
The resort now provides a range of holistic health programs. Those which are more geared towards physical fitness include detox, fasting, and weight loss. The clinic also conducts programs for stress relief and chronic pain management.
Furthermore, they offer health consultations for tao signature, healing, traditional Chinese medicine, hydrotherapy, ayurvedic therapies, and beauty treatments.
The clinic also provides a therapeutic ultrasound treatment to reduce back pain. This uses either high or low frequency sound waves, which are applied to the surrounding myofascial tissues in order to sooth muscle ache. The sound waves warm up the muscles, which increases the blood circulation. This in turn reduces any inflammation around the irritated area.
In addition to this, physical therapists also employ techniques such as manipulation, mobilization, and massage.
The Tao Garden Health Spa & Resort is led by Master Mantak Chia. Having studied taoism since childhood, he has been able to master the philosophy, which is now being taught throughout the world.

I have done quite a few 14 day detoxes there.
If you are after a sophisticated stylish resort this is not that but if you are after a relaxing quiet retreat then you will love this.
Walking in and getting a blood test, sitting down with a physician and going over the results is a great way to start a detox, very professional..
Tao Garden have so many great programs. From Detox, to courses to just going there and chilling out. The place is very spiritual and relaxing. Its set on 80 acres with 40 being there own organic farm with the organic food being so tasty, in fact it was a big step up from last year.
The staff were so happy and friendly and always smiling. I will be 4 sure telling even more friends about it. As a health retreat goes it was one of the best I had been too in Asia..
The only thing I could suggest was some Yoga classes. #LetsGuide #healthyfood #spa #retreat #thailand

For we come from Hong Kong, we enjoy very much the stay in Tao Garden. It is not like those luxury hotel, it provides rather basic and simple facilities. But the extensive greenery and close to nature are precious. It is a unique resort for cultivating health. We like the free morning and evening exercises, massage therapy(though price on high side, the therapists are professional) and the healthy meals.
Staff are helpful and nice, always wear a smile.
Whilst, standard and furnishing of rooms varied. The steam room is out of order and gym needs some upgrade. The ambience of new juicy bar not very comfortable and hope they could enhance the varieties of drinks and cakes as well as the merchandise items in gift shop.
