Our Canacona clinic is situated just outside the small but thriving town of Chaudi, which itself is less than 2km from the popular but still relatively unspoilt beaches of Palolem and Patnem.
Canacona is easily accessible to visitors coming from Dabolim, Goa’s international airport at Vasco de Gama, and is connected by road and bus with Margao (to the north) and Karwar (to the south). Canacona is also on the Konkan Railway route.
Palolem is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Goa. A natural bay surrounded by high headlands on either side has created a calm, idyllic setting frequented by a cosmopolitan mix of tourists, travellers, locals and expats.
Patnem is the even more laid-back alternative to Palolem. Less developed than its neighbouring beach, there are nevertheless more than enough restaurants and accommodation options to cater to the needs of most visitors.
The clinic has a juice bar, restaurant, beautiful gardens and a well-equipped stretch hall. We also have a limited number of rooms available for those requiring in-patient care.

With an average elevation of over 2000m, Dharamkot is a stunning location offering great views of the Kangra Valley and the Dhauladhar mountain ranges.
McLeod Ganj, also known as “Little Lhasa” or “Dhasa” (a short form of Dharamsala used mainly by Tibetans), is the official residence of the Dalai Lama and the headquarters of the Tibetan Government in exile. Tourism is an important industry in McLeod Ganj, and many people come here to study Tibetan Buddhism and culture.
Our clinic is located on a footpath just south of the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre. In keeping with the influence of Tibetan teachings and traditions in this region of India, Dharamkot boasts the Vipassana Meditation Centre, the Dhamma Shikara and the Tushita Meditation Centre – for the study and practice of Buddhism.
Dharamkot is approximately eight hours drive from Delhi. The nearest airport is Gaggal Airport, 15km from Dharamsala. The nearest railway stations on the narrow-gauge line are at Kangra and Nagrota (about 20km south of Dharamsala). The nearest railhead (broad gauge) is at Pathankot (85km away).
This flourishing hill station offers a wide variety of accommodation and eateries as well as temples, monasteries and other ancient structures.
By March 2020 we plan to go back to our roots, to Manipur, the place where the techniques that we use were developed and open a permanent health and wellbeing centre. This will allow us close access to the Manipuri masters, enabling us to further develop and expand our techniques in musculoskeletal realignment. We will be able to treat more serious conditions, learn techniques we have not yet begun to use, and expand our use of indigenous, plant-based medicines.
We will also train the next generation of practitioners who wish to learn the Manipuri techniques and traditional health system, so they can in turn help more people benefit from this knowledge.
The centre will be amid the rich medicinal flora of Manipur where we will grow our own medicines and organic food to further enhance treatment for our clients – the residents of Manipur as well as foreign visitors.
The Bone and Body Clinic is part of the Bone and Body Research Centre, a transdisciplinary, integrated health and wellbeing organisation already based in Manipur. The centre was established to creatively advance the health, conservation, and sustainability of Manipur and to both protect the invaluable knowledge and traditions of Manipur as well as to enable the world to benefit from and have access to this closely guarded system.
We create and fund projects working under the broad categories – plant, animals, people. Building the Manipur clinic is our current main project as well as working to save the Manipur polo pony, which is in danger of extinction.
