Treatment at Magalies Wellness Centre
We are located in the town of Hartbeespoort, approximately 45 minutes from Pretoria and 1 hour from Johannesburg. Treatment takes place in a comfortable setting on a private sanctuary. Our facility caters for a maximum of three clients, ensuring much-needed individual attention for each person. We offer single luxury accommodation, with ensuite bathrooms. Each room pays tribute to the #ThankYouPlantMedicine movement in a uniquely African way.
Our treatment procedures are based on the Manual for Ibogaine Therapy by Howard Lotsof and Boaz Wachtel (2003) as well as the clinical guidelines published by the Global Ibogaine Therapy Alliance (2016).
