Centro Holistico de Terapias
Center of Holistic Therapies
One of the most interesting side-trips I took was a visit to the new clinic/center in Rio founded and run by Dr. Jose Flavio Pessoa de Barros, Dr. Edson Carpes and Dr. Ana Paula Camargo.

The logo of the clinic combines the yin/yang symbol of Buddhism and the colors - black and red - of the Orisha Exu.

The center was established to offer alternative health therapies for those who live with urban stress - holistically connecting the psychological, physical and spiritual needs we have for healing.
Combining Eastern and African traditions - the center also offers various types of divination and oracular consultations and the entire feeling one gets upon entering is one of relaxation and meditation.
I did not get a chance to actually experience any of the treatments when there - but hope to do so on my next trip.
