Our holistic approach - an integration of ancestry exploration and art therapy combined with healing practices including meditation, scalp massage and light therapy - ensures that you receive the highest level of care to align hair growth with personal growth. For advanced hair loss, we offer PRP therapy and hair transplantation to restore hair in areas of thinning and balding.
