About Dr. Randi Raymond

As an integrative medical doctor, Dr. Randi Raymond combines Eastern and Western medicine to create custom wellness plans and experiences. She has more than 20 years of experience and has always believed that the real answers for healing can be found in nature.

Dr. Randi has lived in Costa Rica since 2003 and currently hosts one-on-one or small group wellness classes and experiences for guests from around the world in her wellness center. She focuses on Oriental medicine, farm-to-table nutrition, mycology, and plant medicine. But clients can also choose from other treatments including massage, colonics, frequency medicine, ozone therapy, infrared therapy, yoga, meditation, qigong, life coaching, hydrotherapy and thermal therapy.

Dr. Randi owns a plant medicine farm in Costa Rica that is adjacent to one of the most biodiverse, protected rainforest parks in the world. She has plans to build a research lab and expand her work with medicinal plants and mycology.

“I have created a space where you can be nurtured by nature and people who care to see you get healthy, thriving and back out on the playing field of life.”  Dr. Randi Raymond
