The Niraamaya Centre offers natural, alternative medicine options in the heart of Bangkok at Sukhumvit Soi 31. They strive to provide a holistic approach to assist individuals in achieving their optimum health. To do so, they incorporate a wide range of natural health disciplines:
• Naturopathic Nutrition
• Lymphatic Drainage
• Healing Yoga
• Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy
• Remedial Massage
• Palliative Care Services
• Education on all these treatments
• Nutrition, cooking workshops
• Thai traditional herbs
For many of you wondering whether these approaches are suitable for children, homeopathy in particular can be extremely beneficial as it is safer and gentler than traditional medicine options. Likewise for pregnant or breastfeeding women, who can use it without needing to worry about it negatively affecting the baby. For the rest of us, these treatments can be wonderful preventive, supporting, and transformational tools to great health. The Niraamaya Centre even provides facial rejuvenation through acupuncture, which focuses not only aging, but the internal imbalances that create certain deep lines on the face. Another plus is that all your natural homeopathic and nutritional purchases can be made right next door at the Sunshine Market.

PENELOPE BOOTH: Naturopathy, Homeopathy, and Holistic Kinesiology. ND.
DBM. Dip Hom. Dip Kin. ATMS. AHA.
Penelope (Penny) Booth, was born and raised in England. Although her family ate meat, Penny chose not to by the age of 3 and was henceforth a vegetarian for 40+ years, although she does eat some meat now. Her reasoning? Her profound love for animals. That’s what one might call some pretty advanced thinking for a very young lady. Penny eventually studied to be a registered nurse (RN) in England and when she migrated to Australia in 1985, she took up the studies of Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Kinesiology, and Acupuncture/Chinese principles. Penny admits that she loves being in a job where she can help others and promote positive change in their lives. She believes that as humans, we have an obligation to be happy, but doesn’t believe that most people are because we are always seeking perfection and therefore too attached to an outcome in life. Penny also immensely enjoys teaching others what she knows, something she has done and continues to do primarily on topics regarding women’s issues such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and menopause as well as children’s issues. As for her consultation style, she first attempts to gather lots of information to discover a person’s physiological, psychological, and/or dietary imbalances in order to decide on the best treatment for that person. A treatment will typically require 4-6 meetings with Penny, but all is of course dependent upon the individual and their health.
