What is SomaVeda®?
American College of Natural Medicine (A.C.N.M.) and Thai Yoga Center were founded under the Native American Indigenous Church (N.A.I.C. Inc.) by Ajahn Dr. Anthony B. James, who incorporated the traditional teachings of various schools in Thailand with other conventional and eclectic modalities to create an effective healing protocol used by practitioners throughout the United States and world.
