Laila Saif’s road to Illuminations Abu Dhabi began when, as a hard-working executive, she googled Theta Healing and came across the original wellbeing center in Dubai.  Intrigued, she soon headed up the highway from her home in Abu Dhabi to investigate.

Palliative care for the terminally ill is still severely limited across the UAE due to inadequate, dated insurance policies and a lack of trained experts to care for the dying, healthcare professionals say.
