Our Locations

ABOUT AUSTIN

Our Austin Center opened in April of 2017 and moved from a small location on the south side of town to a larger and more comfortable location near Mopac and Spicewood Springs. Similar to our San Antonio location, the Austin center is in a quiet, peaceful setting which is very conducive to healing. Given the very private and sensitive nature of the treatments we provide, our doors are always locked. This is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff and also to create a productive environment for healing that is free of any distractions. Please ring the video doorbell when you arrive for your appointment.

ABOUT SAN ANTONIO

Our San Antonio center is a very tranquil location nestled among trees, walkways, and Koi ponds just east of the Medical Center on Wurzbach Road. While the very first San Antonio Klarisana was in a small 12 x 20 ft office, our new campus has three comfortable infusion rooms and a very relaxing ambiance. Given the very private and sensitive nature of the treatments we provide, our doors are always locked. This is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff and also to create a productive environment for healing that is free of any distractions. Please ring the video doorbell when you arrive for your appointment.
