Kamalaya Koh Samui offers guests forward-thinking functional medicine therapies and preventive testing at its newly opened Longevity House.
As part of the first release of new therapies, the wellness sanctuary now offers IV vitamin infusions, ozone therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and high sensitivity cancer screening to guests. These therapies are available à la carte and when integrated into any one of Kamalaya’s Wellness Programs, are able to enhance the benefits of each program.
According to Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary founder and Chief Wellness Officer, Karina Stewart, as science catches up and confirms the efficacy of these ancient medical traditions, Kamalaya continues to incorporate the latest research into its cuisine, wellness programs, therapies, and treatments to pave the way for a longer and higher quality of life.
“We are very excited to launch our Longevity House,” says Karina Stewart. “It is our newest initiative where we are housing our newest therapies, treatments and services that support, enhance, and really augment what our wellness programs are so famous for and to increase the benefits that you already receive in your wellness program in a short period of time.
“Kamalaya’s integral approach to wellness is grounded in bringing together the depth of Eastern medical traditions with scientific research from the West as a core principle in its philosophy, which we are delighted now extends to our Longevity House and our new regenerative treatments.”
The new treatments at the Longevity House include:
Reset your body’s regenerative abilities with Kamalaya’s Ozone Therapy. It is used to treat a wide variety of health conditions including infections, deep burns, viruses, autoimmune diseases, respiratory issues, digestive problems, heart conditions, and wound healing. It is also an overall rejuvenator because it helps increase the oxygenation in our tissue. This therapy is done through autohemotherapy by drawing from your blood, mixing it with medical-grade oxygen that is exposed to UV light creating O3 bonds and reinjecting it into your bloodstream through IV. This is to deliver a higher grade of oxygen throughout the body and to areas in the body that require healing. By oxygenating the cells in the body repeatedly, you enhance or speed up the healing process as well as treat any microbes that might be in the system in the body.
Ozone Therapy sessions take 45 – 60 minutes and are administered by a nurse.

In addition to the nutrition and the treatments that you would get in programs offered at Kamalaya, you can choose to also amplify the benefits by supplementing it with a bespoke IV Therapy during your stay. Guests can choose from a comprehensive menu of research-based, results-oriented IV infusions tailored to address a range of specific health outcomes. It’s a personalized cocktail formulated for 100% absorption that is prepared and delivered by trained nurses. These formulas are enriched with nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are delivered directly into the body for maximum absorption. Kamalaya offers seven unique blends that help to overcome jet lag, defy aging, boost metabolism and immunity, increase energy and endurance, or improve sleep. IV Therapies include Age Defy & Repair, Fortify Immunity, Cleanse & Purify, Metabolism Boost, Rejuvenate & Glow, and Energy & Endurance.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
If you are seeking an invigorating supplementary therapy for recovery and anti-aging, the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy might just be the choice for you. This therapy is performed in a high air pressure hyperbaric chamber which delivers more oxygen to the lungs and microcapillaries and enables oxygen to deeply penetrate the tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is said to help increase the rate of healing up to three times faster, oxygenate the tissues in the body, reduce swelling and inflammation, improve blood flow to support tissue regeneration, aid the body in fighting bacteria, stimulate stem cells, and promote anti-aging. This invigorating treatment also offers solutions for a wide variety of cases. It is believed to help improve the quality of life for patients with cancer and brain dysfunction, those with chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as those suffering from sports injuries. “It’s used for diabetic patients to get the microcirculation into the tissues in the eyes and for burn victims because it is so effective at delivering oxygen to the microcapillaries and into the plasma,” adds Karina Stewart.
The therapy session lasts about 60-90 minutes.
High Sensitivity Preventive Cancer Screening
Based on results from a simple blood test, Kamalaya’s practitioners will recommend customized treatments that best suit guest’s health and wellbeing requirements.
At Kamalaya, you can find a diverse combination of ancient Eastern healing traditions with Western medical research, including naturopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, nutrition, homeopathy, conventional medicine and an array of holistic activities.
