The Healing Company makes its second acquisition in four months, acquiring Dr. Deepak Chopra's well-being experiences businesses. Chopra Global, which includes physical products, the meditation and well-being app, and licensed experiences, will join The Healing Company’s community of healing brands.

WHO: Chopra Global is a leading integrative health company focused on empowering personal transformation for millions of people globally to expand our collective well-being. Anchored by the life's practice and research of Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, a pioneer in integrative medicine, Chopra Global's signature programs have been proven to improve overall well-being by focusing on physical, mental, and spiritual health. Over two decades, the business has increased accessibility by creating tools, guidance, and community that's resulted in an editorial archive of more than 2,000 health articles, expansive self-care practices and meditations, mobile app, masterclasses, teacher certifications, immersive live events, and personalized retreats.

The Healing Company was founded in 2022 by former IMG model and supplement entrepreneur Anabel Oelmann and ex and Equinox Media President Simon Belsham with the vision of building the leading community of integrated healing brands. Compelled by the global healthcare crisis and a deep belief in a different way—one which draws on conventional medicine and ancient wisdom, science, and nature—the company looks to democratize access to integrated healing methods, helping the world evolve how it thinks about health and healthcare.

WHY: The acquisition will propel Chopra Global into a new era of growth at the intersection of three high-growth sectors: integrative healing, Ayurveda, and meditation. The deal puts The Healing Company, founded just last year, at the forefront of the integrated healing movement. 

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “I am deeply inspired by The Healing Company’s vision and leadership and am very excited to work together to launch new products and practices that meet the Chopra community—and the world’s—healing needs,” said Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD. "The world's healthcare system is in crisis. The Healing Company is a perfect partner for Chopra Global, with the expertise and leadership to propel our mission of helping 1 billion people access healing so that we can collectively move in the direction of a more just, sustainable, peaceful, healthy, and joyful world.”

Simon Belsham, CEO and co-founder of The Healing Company ( and Equinox Media President), adds, “Chopra Global is placed at the intersection of explosive global markets: Ayurveda, meditation, and integrated healing, and is poised to become the leading provider in this space. The company has already reached millions through world-class healing experiences, content, and products, and we look forward to accelerating this further at The Healing Company.”

Anabel Oelmann, Director and co-founder of The Healing Company, shared, “We are deeply inspired by Deepak’s vision to help 1 billion people access healing. As we’ve built our partnership over the last year, our conviction in mission alignment and our ability to help him achieve this aim have only grown. We could not be more excited for this next chapter in our partnership, and all we can do together to bring leading science-backed healing solutions to the world.”
